This show rocks my world! Critics suck! It's so much better then most the duds on television and you know it. I'm just sad it's almost over. What a tragedy! Thank you Aaron Sorkin for being such an innovator and staying true to your voice. One of the finest writers of our time. Can't wait to see what you do next!… Full Review »
As of right now there are only TWO critic reviews for Peaky Blinders... and they are both quite average. This show may start a bit slow but the writing and acting are second to none. I know it might be a trend as of late to have the antihero as the star of a show... but Peaky Blinders absolutely nails it where others seem to fail.
Watch this Series. Easily the best Netflix Original out there.… Full Review »
The stories and characters function clearly well, but the best part of this show is the constant (for some, it may count as overuse) of exquisite and intelligent irony and sarcasm. This is definitely one of the cleverest and deepest TV series I've ever seen. Just fantastic!… Full Review »
This show is WAY more liked than it deserves to be. It's vulgar, spiteful, generic and while sometimes "Ha-ha" funny, never really impressive. It's okay, I watch it when it's on but that doesn't make it the "Smart" comedy many people seem to confuse it for. The characters are mediocre, and with exception of Howard remarkably bland, the show claims itself to be geeky humor but barely understands what geeks are or what interests them to begin with (Little secret. We don't wander the streets playing elemental compound memorization games. That's just flat out stupid) and what concerns me is that it's become a household name. I've some relatives who don't allow their kids to watch "The Simpsons", a mildly edgy but overall heartwarming show that teaches everyone has flaws without coming off as cheesy. These same kids watch "The Big Bang Theory" under the illusion it is "smart humor". One friend even showed it with family because it was "educational". Really?
Don't get me wrong, I don't hate the show. It's funny sometimes. I really love professor proton, and Howard has some fantastically clever quips about his mother and her remarkably girth. But that's all it is. Something stupid and edgy to laugh at. A dick joke, a racist joke, maybe a "nerds use big words" joke if you're lucky, and it's credits time. Admittedly it can be clever from time to time, but don't confuse it for a clever, or revolutionary show. It's kinda funny, it's pretty stupid, and it's most certainly not something you should be showing your kids.… Full Review »
This show is at the end of its run. The first 4 seasons of this show had a large story arch, bigger than any one individual subplot. That ended. Season 5 was an interesting change of pace. Season 6 left us the viewer, in the same state as the show's writers. Struggling to re-claim the greatness with which it began and looking for inspiration in new sources. Both those seasons had moments of excellence, despite having weak overall plots and a vague sense of direction. Season 6, despite having all the same characters we've come to know and love (or hate) has lost its direction. There are new additions to the cast.Both Michael Imperioli and Heather Graham surprisingly slide seamlessly into the cast. Both characters could have been more complex but were good. The character playing Hank's new-found son less so. In the last couple of episodes the show tries to return to its roots, but is has drifted so far it feels superficial at this point. Despite what some critics say, at least it ended with a few good moments before it could further decline into outright terrible.… Full Review »
