News & Interviews for Peaky Blinders: Series 5
[T]he sensuous logic of the music helps propel the attention of the viewer past the simplicity of the plot, which dispenses justice as if it is but a game of chance.
If you like Peaky Blinders already then yes, it's a must watch. If not ,give it a go, but don't start with this episode.
The show's style is so ludicrously over-the-top you have to surrender all cynicism as the Shelbys stride in slow-mo to Black Sabbath. So the longer you stick with it, the more the swagger becomes impossible to resist.
It may be formulaic and occasionally repetitious, as Tommy encounters one fearsome foe after another... but I'll be amazed if the writers of Peaky Blinders can't sustain this likeable momentum for at least another season or two.
Season 5 might not be Peaky Blinders' strongest, but it still does a bang-up job of leaving you properly hyped for Season 6, ending with a proper nail-biter of a cliffhanger.
It is refreshing to see that even in its fifth season, the series can still ratchet up the tension and put the squeeze on its unlawful family in such a confident and entertaining way.
This season proved the show could evolve without losing its focus on the intimate, inner workings of the Shelby family. And after the shocking events of the finale, I can't wait to see what happens next.
How Steven Knight weaved this year's plots together at the end is fascinating... Already champing at the bit for Season 6.
Season 5 of Peaky Blinders brings as many twists and turns as the previous seasons, and introduces some new players to the chess board, any of whom could rise from pawn to king.
The Season 5 finale is a departure for the show, which generally wraps up with one of Tommy's unlikely, brilliant plans working out precisely the way he'd planned, or close to it.
A season that steps into the quicksand of the Great Depression... clearly makes a door-kicking-open return to wonderfully portrayed gangsterism.
Audience Reviews for Peaky Blinders: Series 5
Feb 27, 2021i did not feel that season 5 was as good as previous seasons especially since the character of Aberama Gold was killed off. I think that character had a goldmine of potential waiting to be mined and you do not throw away that opportunity, nor an actor of the quality of Aidan Guillen who I feel was wasted somewhat. Polly finally had a man who truly loved her for who she was and was her equal; just the potential for this relationship would have been reason to keep him around. I also would have loved to see him take his place in the family, avenge the death of his son Bonnie and on and on. Although it was interesting to see Tommy up against a foe he could not figure out how to beat, the killing off of Aberama Gold ,rather than expanding his storyline, was a big negative for me.
Dec 29, 2020There are some excellent scenes, Tommy and Alfie are always worth watching, but the rest of the show has gone to trash. The writing is absolutely abysmal.
Dec 13, 2020Compared to the last 4 season, it was like watching Eastenders. Utterly disappointing. Cillian and Helen McCroy just about kept it afloat.
Nov 27, 2020Carefully written, well-developed, and solid direction. Each season has its own plot and complexity. Action packed, often barbaric. Most of characters has roles to play backed with superb acting. Music is a letdown, but it gets better from S4 onwards | follow us at @uncle.review
Nov 07, 2020I don't know how I skipped over this show for year on Netflix. The only good that came from that was that I could now binge all 5 seasons without the months (and sometimes years) between seasons. Tommy is the man we all want to be but don't know it. He is the James Bond of lay men. Charismatic, mysterious, intriguing, irreverent to the filth of the world, protective of the innocent and his own- Tommy is a man that sees the end and controls the means. His character started out as described and somehow still found a way to evolve through 5 seasons. Surrounding him are a gang of equally as compelling characters. Arthur, Polly, Ada, John, Alfie and on- they all start as one version of intrigue and evolve into a better, more intriguing version of their former selves. Perhaps that the key with Peaky Blinders. Character development isn't isolated to the 2 or 3 main characters- it is given to every reoccurring character and you are forced to care about them all, no matter how heinous their crimes. Because of this, everything they do has stakes- and many times the stakes are high. So the viewer is left on their edge of their seat because they know and care about whatever character is on screen. Too much to write- this show is just spectacular.
Oct 20, 2020The best season ever
Oct 16, 2020Top serie , Cillian Murphy is fantastic
Oct 10, 2020Another great season cant wait for the 6th!
Sep 21, 2020First 4 seasons were better. The feeling of the protagonists beeing overly protected by script is increasing. Still great though.
Sep 15, 2020Peaky Blinders Season 5 Links well with historical events and figures although not entirely accurate at all.
