Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, November 16, 2017

The news comes about a month after the first trailer was released for what series creator Steven Knight has called the best season so far. A U.S. launch date has not yet been confirmed by Netflix, though it typically follows once the UK run has ended. At the end of last season, we saw Cillian Murphy's Tommy Shelby at what Knight has called the character's "most nihilistic." Set in 1924, Season 3 built on the Shelby family having ascended into high society from its humble beginnings in Birmingham's Small Heath, and the personal issues that presented. Season 4 will kick off with Tommy receiving a mysterious letter on Christmas Eve and realizing that the Peaky Blinders are in danger of annihilation. As the enemy closes in, he flees his country house and returns to the streets of Small Heath, where a desperate fight for survival begins.

The previous seasons should be, this new one prolly not yet. It's only like 6 episodes per season, though, and good binge watching material if you like it. I was hooked after the 2nd epi of the first season.... the cinematography and music matched the acting and plot.... although there's some of the accents may be difficult.

Sam Neill was the police Major in the first few seasons, and Tom Hardy still has a recurring role as the bearded Jewish gang leader. This season the NY Mafia shows up with Tommy guns.

I had classes in English Literature in college, and my wife and I always use the subtitle option on the Netflix! Also, too, unlike our own PBS, the Netflix shows the ------- and the gens, albeit in a tasteful and genteel manner!
