A week ago Jen and I started watching the Netflix original show Peaky Blinders. Huh? You ask? What on Earth is Persnickety Biscuits? Well, good friend, Pesky Blunders is a 1920’s mob story with character depth, excellent music, and a fast moving plot. I am entirely convinced that if this show was named with some title more memorable than Pasty Blithers than the world would be very much aware of its stunning execution.
In full disclosure, not everyone loves Peachy Balloons. Sander was turned off by the parallel plots and the accents, which at times feel like they need subtitles. That said, if you have Netflix and you like dramatic crime, put Party Bingers on your short list. At the time of this post there are 12 episodes online, each about an hour long.
Let me know what you think!

I thought it could have used a laugh track…
Party Bingers would have Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, naturally.
Ah Peaky Blinders is a wonderful BBC original series, not Netflix! Having said that, I need to get Netflix. But apparently the UK version isn’t as good as US.
P.S. I used to read your blog all the time about 7yrs ago, but dip in every now and then. I saw you got married – Congrats!
My husband really likes the show. I think it’s just alright. I don’t mind the accents, and I’m a big fan of Sam Neill, but I find the Blinders’ haircuts distracting and I already have a favorite show wherein I root for the criminal(Black List). That being said, there are beautiful horses on Peaky Blinders, and not many shows have horses these days.
