Anyone watching Peaky Blinders?

Just started to watch it myself, very interesting in gang culture in the early 20th century in the UK.

One thing that I find surprising is the heavy influence of the Irish in the show.

One thing that I find interesting is how they never actually demonstrated they are Irish, it focusses more on the Gypsy bloodlines.

It does, however, feature very heavily on Ulster, Irish civil war and those in the IRA working on behalf of the UK government.

I just wanted t to discuss how much of the historical background of Peaky Blinders is historically correct when it comes to the Irish.

I do not watch TV but someone suggested this so I watched. It is very light entertainment and not very real at all. Also the shooting scenes were ridiculous. However it is important in showing the element of deceit involved and also how the government uses criminal gangs

Just watched the new series 1st episode.

Not too sure TBH, not as good as previous seasons I think, episode 2 tomorrow too which is strange. Its only 6 episodes long so for a 2nd episode tomorrow night is weird.

the decision to cast Sam Neil as an Ulsterman was pretty dodgy. His accent is about as good as my impressions of Jonah Lomu
