❤ My friend showed me this and I am really enjoying it. The yeshiva that is on 10th and ave A is actually the school my mom went to when she was young. De ja vu moment Haha! I think anyone who enjoys comedy and wants to follow a story that is sophisticated, enjoyable, and has constant character development, this show is for you. There is also a lot of room for creative interpretation of the story's plot, and to expect tremendous character growth with complex and harsh circumstances provided. Of course the setting of New York draws out the characters personality perfect due to the fast paced, artistic, diverse and chaotically exciting lifestyle of a New Yorker.

❤ I have such a fantastic feeling after watching the last episode, so emotional and overwhelming! I really invested in these characters, they're flawed, but have beautiful hearts... I watched one episode but knew I was hooked after just 3 minutes! Wow, I loved the ending, superb. I love how tv has become like some of the best novels you could ever read, such quality and I'm sure this series will stay with me for a long, long time. 5 stars .
P.s. I must have been watching a different show to other people - how can there be a 2nd series? I've definitely taken it that the story is over (No spoilers!) for these characters anyway...
P.p.s why do people keep saying it was 'comedic' or 'laugh out loud'?

❤ I binged it in one night it was so good. I ended up staying up way to late cause i worked the next morning. It's touched so many different emotions.It's dark, humorous, sad, and at times also very happy! I wish there were more shows like this! It's only one season long but that is Ll you need from this show to truly appreciate the work of art it is! It executed and accomplished what Happy Death day could only try to do.

❤ Just started watching it and so so loving it. The evils of technology apart, this is a nice sneak peek into what the future could possibly hold in store for us around 2030-2035 !! Will be wonderful if some episodes also dwell on the positives of a technology driven world (probably there are which I am yet to see). But excellent series overall and must appreciate Netflix for thinking in this direction. Must watch for all who care for technology and its effects.

❤ APPLAUSE. HATS OFF. No mere words can describe that slow creepy feeling, the cringing and the horror, and of course the present-day relevance that you experience while watching this show. Majority of the episodes end with you just staring at the credits and wondering what has hit you and from where. Absolutely brilliant in the way it depicts the gradual spiral downwards of contemporary society and the technological and social media dystopia, we are heading towards. A must for all you generation X'ers and millennial's out there.. 5 brilliant stars.!!!!

❤ This show is excellent! I’m always very picky when it comes to Netflix series. This one I enjoyed. It really brings out the good and bad consequences of our growing technology. Every episode is different, so you don’t have to follow it. Not only is every episode different, but every single episode has a different cast. Very cool and very well done!

Review - (Source: Google Search)

❤ Outstanding. Even though l have seen all 4 Seasons (eagerly awaiting 5&6) and bought them, l’m presently working my way through them for the second time. Despite knowing how things turn out, there are still elements of each story you missed the first time round. Watching again just enhances the experience as filling in the gaps completes the jigsaw. The whole series is highly recommended. Adrian Dunbar is superb. Enjoy a class of the best the BBC have to offer.

❤ The best ride in your life, thrilling. The writers of the show are absolutely amazing, so intelligent it makes the viewer really think and second guess yourself as you try to subconsciously solve the plot. The best thing is you never can, as the writers have the plot twists way ahead of you. This show is so addictive you cannot stop watching, so be warned! So well acted, well shot, I cannot praise this series enough. Please don’t stop making this series, 10 stars.

❤ I'm always looking for someone who hasn't seen this show yet so I can watch it over again through fresh eyes.
Clever, edge-of-your-seat writing, compelling performances, perfect casting.
Concise seasons that wrap up nicely on their own yet build into the following ones.
So far my favorite British Police Drama/Thriller.

Review - (Source: Google Search)

❤ Him and Her is a fantastic comedy. The writing is very well thought out because it is so simple like The Royle Family and thats why it is extremely popular. Laura is twisted character of I'm sure everyone knows of in real life. her nasty and sly comments to everyone and how self obsessed makes her one of the best characters in the programme. Russel and Sarah are perfect for the main role, playing a convincing couple which are adorable. This programmes focuses on characters rather than one liners, you have to know the characters to understand this and enjoy it. It seems very realistic and the characters are makes you laugh because you know its ridiculous but it is very real.

❤ One of the funniest and natural comedy series about i think personally, if you can't take a joke with what happens in it simply don't watch it but for those who can you will find that you will have a real giggle.

It basically is how some people live and what funny mistakes they make along living in there own flat.

The reactions to some of the scenarios that happen are also hilarious.

Not for those who rule there life around manners etc and take things too seriously.

Absolutely brilliant!

Hope to see more of it!

❤Let's make it short: Concept, writing, acting, filming, editing, performing and just every single detail in this show are perfect. Even the theme song is. It is a sitcom and if you like stuff like How I Met Your Mother, That 70s Show, Big Bang Theory, The IT-Crowd, My Girl, 2 Broke Girls, etc. then you will adore this show. I stumbled on it in the net and could not believe how bloody awesome it is compared to those. In my opinion it much superior to practically all other sitcoms out there, also it is very compact and its story-line had not been extended for ages like it had happened with mainstream shows like BBT or HIMYM. In the way, the concept of the writing was realized it reminds me of quality shows like Sherlock. It is bloody f******g brilliant, seriously 100%, if you are into sitcom comedy and humor, go watch it instantly! PS: If anyone knows other shows like this, please let me know!

Story –

A dangerous Tommy Shelby leads Peaky Blinders, a criminal gang based in Birmingham in 1919. Chief Inspector Chester Campbell decides to nab him and put an end to the activities of this gang.

Review - (Source: Google Search)

❤ VERY ADDICTIVE!!! Peaky Blinders is the drama series which tells the story of the notorious gangster family named Peaky Blinders(the Shelby family) in Birmingham around 1920(After the WWI ended). Tommy Shelby who is the leader of this gang is a young, handsome and very ambitious man who fights the world for his family and to complete his ambitions despite his own struggles. As he is the man who always gets what he wants by whichever means necessary he
develops lots of enemies and attract a lot of attention of political people and big players in the game who gives him hard time expanding his family business.

Talking about the casting for the series, BBC has done a very great job. Big stars like Cillian Murphy, Tom Hardy, Paul Anderson, Helen McCrory, and all the actors have done fantastic jobs according to their characters.

When we talk about the cinematography it's very bold, lavish and visually pleasing. It is very challenging to film a movie or a series having storyline going back almost a hundred years ago. But I think the directors have literally done mind-blowing job to make everything look exactly like an Post-Worldwar era. The costumes, the locations, infrastructures and whole environment in the series looks fabulous and very natural.

The most parts of the series are shoot in Manchester, Liverpool and of course Birmingham itself.

Overall this is an MUST WATCH series according to me. Even if you're not into Crime/Drama genre, still this series won't fail to entertain you

❤ Beyond obsessed with this show. I feel that Peaky Blinders is underrated and not known, appreciated and watched enough. Definitely one of the best shows in recent times, and deserves much more recognition. Tommy Shelby is such a beautifully defined complex character that you would always end up routing for, irrespective of questionable morality behind some of his decisions and actions. Cillian Murphy is giving performance of his lifetime and he deserves more recognition for his insane talent (and that face!). This show also comprises of some of the best written characters with incredible acting by the supporting cast. Watch this show!

❤Stunningly good cinematography, a plot that is crafty, top notch acting......  this has it all. And its well researched - very important. (I hate it when you have a roman gladiator spouting lines like "Whats your problem" - that does it for me!). But Peaky Blinders production team have earned my respect for the small accurate details put into almost every scene.
Now this is the standard that all serious TV and movie production will have to live up to if they want to be taken seriously.

Review - (Source: Google Search)

❤ This is one of the best gangster series in television history. Excellent direction, writing, cinematography, setting and acting. The entire cast including the special appearances deliver outstanding performances. In particular Murphy, Anderson, Hardy, Rundle, McCrory and Cole shine. The plot is flawless as it follows the Shelby family in the early 1900's starting off as the ruling gangster family in Britain and then realizing that legitimizing the business is more profitable and the key to the family's survival. This task is headed by Thomas Shelby played by Murphy. He creates one of the most memorable characters in this genre to date. His subtleties in everything he sets out to do are brilliantly displayed. He is one of the most cunning, clever, ruthless and intelligent gangsters ever portrayed. This show is absolutely mesmerizing, captivating and memorable. It is masterfully done and a true work of art in every aspect.

❤ Everything about this show is thrilling. Every little detail and every character in this show is absolutely incredible. I love the era it is focused around as well, it makes for the perfect gangster show with class! Cillian Murphy is brilliant in every way! This is by far the best show and my favorite. Every single episode has you obsessed and wanting more. No matter how many times I’ve rewatched this on Netflix, I always find something new that I didn’t realize before. Very best show! I’m so excited for more seasons to come!

❤It's a really gripping show with interesting story lines and we'll developed characters. Well written, acted, and produced. The visuals of post WWI Birmingham look spectacular and they do a great job with the music used for the show. Cillian Murphy leads this show elegantly and brings so much suave to Thomas Shelby. The supporting cast is very good as well and know how to enhance their storylines. A very underrated show, Peaky Blinders.
