It was beautiful, a vengeance killing that touched on myth to find its impact. It made me hope series two of Peaky Blinders may not be such a mistake after all.

You can't go wrong with a good flat cap.

This powerful, bloody, explosive first hour does set the stall magnificently for what's to come - and after this, you'd be a fool not to tune in.

I'm happy to report that I fell hard for Peaky Blinders. However familiar its building blocks, the U.K. gangster drama is positively bursting with irrepressible energy, and it's proof that, whatever a show's premise, capable execution is everything.

We mustn't begrudge writer Steven Knight the Brummie braggadocio that charged the virtuosic denouement to series two of Peaky Blinders.

No, the show-off soundtrack, the roving accents, the clunky exposition haven't changed, but Peaky Blinders can now boast several more big-name actors to supplement the sterling work of Cillian Murphy, Helen McCrory and Sam Neill.

Audience Reviews for Peaky Blinders: Season 2

More of the same and not even Tom Hardy saves the show from a pace that drags on forever and doesn't take our characters anywhere new, maybe asides from Polly, who might be having something interesting coming up next. Still, very little Grace and Ada made me grow more tired of Arthur still behaving like a lil' spoiled kid with suicidal and raging tendencies. It's get old and so is the show.
