DISCLAIMER: MATURE CONENT **VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED**
This Sunday March 26th at 8/7 CST the Binge Out writers will be on Twitter live tweeting using #bingeoutlive as we binge the first three episodes of the hit British crime drama series, Peaky Blinders on Netflix!
Peaky Blinders has arguably become one of the best Netflix exclusives next to Stranger Things on the streaming giant. Peaky Blinders is a BBC British crime drama about a family operating in organized crime after the First World War in Birmingham, England. The middle child of the family, Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy, Batman Begins, Inception) leads his brothers in the gritty family business of racketeering, theft, and other such crimes after they’ve all returned to their lives following The Great War.
In the meantime, the Shelby’s can usually be seen throwing back pints at the local pub with the occasional bar brawl or two as they blow off some steam. However, once the Shelby brothers have a large, stolen weapons cache accidentally fall into their laps, the British government sends a specialized agent (Sam Neill,Jurassic Park, Event Horizon) to recover the missing guns. Tommy however, sees an opportunity in holding onto the guns and devises a plan that he keeps close to the chest from his family, bewildering them as to why he would take such a risk. As events unfold and blood begins to spill on the cobblestone streets of the city, its anyone’s guess as to who will come out on top alive and in one piece.
With season four having just started filming in Liverpool, England this month, we have a lot more story to cover for the Shelby family sooner than later! What better time than now to see where it all began and start catching up on this great crime drama with your’s truly? Mark your calendars, fill your pints with your drink of choice, grab the snacks and join us Sunday 8/7 CST on Netflix and Twitter using #bingeoutlive to find the discussion as we cheer on the Peaky Blinders gang.
