    Peaky Blinders Discussion Thread

    Peaky Blinders is a British historical crime drama television series starring Cillian Murphy as a gangster operating in Birmingham, England, during the aftermath of World War I. The series was created by Steven Knight, and produced by Caryn Mandabach Productions and Tiger Aspect Productions.
    The first series aired on BBC Two on 13 September 2013 and ran for six episodes. The second series premiered on 2 October 2014. A third series has been commissioned.

    Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham, England in 1919, just after the First World War. The story centres on the historic Peaky Blinders gang[1] and their ambitious and highly dangerous boss Tommy Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy). The gang comes to the attention of Chief Inspector Chester Campbell (played by Sam Neill), a detective in the Royal Irish Constabulary sent over from Belfast (where he'd been sent to clean up the city of the IRA, gangs, and common criminals). Winston Churchill (played by Andy Nyman in series 1 and Richard McCabe in series 2) charged him with suppressing fomenting disorder and uprising in Birmingham and recovering a stolen cache of arms meant to be shipped to Libya.

    With the bustling GMT community on here and the generally very good tastes of the members who frequent the entertainment forums, I can't believe there isn't a discussion thread about Peaky Blinders! There have been twelve hour-long episodes spread over two seasons thus far with a third season commissioned. Even better? All you Yanks can watch it on Netflix! I've just finished watching the second season and decided I needed people other than my real life friends to discuss it with, so I landed here.

    If you watch it, discuss. If you don't, start.
