peaky blinders

Creators: Steven Knight

Set in 1919 in Birmingham, England a gangster family the Shelby who runs the Peaky Blinders gang has a powerful  boss name Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy) who wants to move up in the world. But a new police inspector is in town and decides to clean up the city.

Here is a awesome series from the U.K. It is a realistic look at the war that left scars to women and men. It is the beginning of the industrialized revolution. The Blinders weapons of choice is a razor blades sew into their peaks of their caps. They make their money the post off war black market illegal book making and protection rackets. In the mix there is a missing crate full of guns become the negotiation piece for Tommy Shelby and realize what he can do with it. In the mean time an police inspector Campbell is determined to recover the crate. Creator /writer Steven Knight inspired by his own family roots decided to take a shot at this. You have the boardwalk Empire set in the 1920’s prohibition time and nd that ow the U.K. has their own version of what happened back then and that is cool. What I love about this series also is the sound track that is pure rock-n-roll and blues music. This series is perfect, he is doing season 2 I can not wait.
