Peaky Blinders on Netflix
Summary: Britain is a mixture of despair and hedonism in 1919 in the aftermath of the Great War. Returning soldiers, newly minted revolutions, and criminal gangs are fighting for survival in a nation rocked by economic upheaval. One of the most powerful gangs of the time is the Peaky Blinders, run by returning war hero Thomas Shelby and his family. But Thomas has bigger ambitions than just running the streets. When a crate of guns goes missing, he recognizes an opportunity to advance in the world because crime may pay, but legitimate business pays better. Trying to rid Britain of its crime is Inspector Chester Campbell, who arrives from Belfast to try to achieve that goal.
The cast includes Cillian Murphy, Sam Neill, and Helen McCrory.
It’s time to put the kids to bed and stay up late. This show takes place right after the first World War and goes through World War 2. The best thing about this show is though it isn’t a family kind of show, it is all about family, gangsters, and never giving up. The show takes place in the United Kingdom and honestly will make you want to be a gangster in the 1920s. I know because I have always loved the 20s, but this show made me want to be a gangster. The Shelby family is a gypsy family looking for every opportunity to move up in the world; by any means necessary, I might add.
If you want a taste of the UK in the 20s and escape to a world of gangsters this is the show for you. This show doesn’t disappoint in any way and you will be addicted. Enjoy!
