Peaky Blinders

Sometimes the bad boys are the best ones.

You ought to be watching Peaky Blinders. 
Yes Cillian Murphy was intense and kind of creepy in The Dark Knight and Red Eye.  Get over it; that was years ago.  Mr. Big Blue Eyes manages to be something of a bad guy in PB, but also a man committed to family, tribe and cause.  Flawed and fabulous, like many of the best book characters.  But it's not just Murphy that makes this show addicting (read here: someone season-binged): Tom Hardy's far too small role is award-worthy, the violence is rather entertaining, and the raucous atmosphere throughout is a bit like rowdy teenage boys at a Futball game.  Thoroughly enjoyable, plus Sam Neill!  What are you waiting for?
