Peaky Blinders is a load of codswallop

That is all

After finishing the sublime Weeds on Netflix I finally succumbed to trying PB.

Total crap. What are all you folk who love it thinking ? Dodgy sets, dodgy score, dodgy accents, dodgy acting.

I’m with you OP. It was crap. I don’t understand why people rave about it.

I am incredulous, I tell ya

Cillian Murphy is pretty, I'll give you that. A little chisel jawed, blue eyed pocket rocket I am sure. I'd like to put him on my mantelpiece.

I can’t get on with it either. Really enjoyed The Sinner on Netflix

That is all.

Very graphic violence and very beautiful people. It was always going to be a hit.

What? It’s so good And Thomas Shelby well , he gives me the most tremendous Fanny gallops the likes of which I’ve not felt in a long time

The score is awesome. Although have always loved a bit of Nick Cave.

I watched quite a lot of it behind a cushion but I loved it. And not just because of Cillian Murphy's beautiful cheekbones

im on series two, im struggling to like it. i hate every character and simply dont care if they die grin

LesDennishair Sat 10-Feb-18 17:58:07

I watch it. I laugh at the, quite frequent now, slow motion segments to music where they're all supposed be terribly cool and intimidating. I don't think this was intended to be humourous grin

Then there's Cillian Murphy of course.

I couldn't get in to it either. I only gave it one episode but I didn't care enough to watch the second.

Charismam Sat 10-Feb-18 17:58:54

So, weeds was good? That's quite old isn't it/? That doesn't put me off. Just wondering if I'm thinking of the same thing.

LesDennishair Sat 10-Feb-18 17:59:13

Good riddance to Grace. Don't think she ever cracked a smile.

SmiledWithTheRisingSun Sat 10-Feb-18 17:59:32

Cillian. That's it.

The accents are really dodgy in the first couple of episodes (particularly Polly who can't make up her mind whether she's from Birmingham or Liverpool) but honestly, stick with it. Its fab, particularly when Tom Hardy comes in.

I’ve boycotted it since discovering that one of the writers is a predatory cunt.

LadyKyliePonsonbyFarquhar Sat 10-Feb-18 18:01:33

What about the gorgeous twenties frocks? I loved it just for the costumes.

Schmoochypoos Sat 10-Feb-18 18:01:34

Cillian Murphy

Schmoochypoos Sat 10-Feb-18 18:01:51

He is just gorgeous

CourtneyLoveIsMySpiritAnimal Sat 10-Feb-18 18:02:11

Agree with you OP. I can't bear the woman who plays Poll (?) either.

I feel like it's something I should like but I hate it. And the accents are dreadful.

iklboo Sat 10-Feb-18 18:03:24

<clears throat> My name is iklboo and Cillian Murphy just doesn't do anything for me.

thenewaveragebear1983 Sat 10-Feb-18 18:11:29

Some of the Birmingham accents are awful as well (Spoken by an actual brummie) and we struggled with series 3. So grace goes does she? Maybe will try again with series 4.....!!
