If you just binge watched your way though Netflix’s original series Narcos and are craving more gang violence, than may I suggest Peaky Blinders. This Netflix original debuted in 2014, but has gotten considerably less publicity than other Netflix shows. The series stars Cillian Murphy, as a ruthless crime boss named Tommy Shelby who leads a notoriously violent gang in 1919 Birmingham, England. The show starts with the Tommy Shelby killing another gang leader to take over his gang, the man only becomes more dangerous from there!
The show is a British drama made by the British themselves, which gives it a very authentic feel. Cillian Murphy and Sam Neil lead an amazing cast that turns in unbelievably authentic performances. While watching this show, you will be totally transported into the dirty, violent streets of 1919 England. Peaky Blinders is just like any other Netflix series. It does have sex, language and violence, but it will totally keep you on the edge of your seat until the end of each episode.
Each season does tend to be shorter than the average Netflix series. With each episode being an hour each and each season having only 6 episodes total, you’ll be bingeing though the moody gang series in no time. Peaky Blinders currently has 2 seasons streaming on Netflix.
