If I had to choose only one show streaming on Netflix, that would be a very tough decision, but Peaky Blinders, starring Cillian Murphy, would be in the top two. The series tells the story of an Irish/Gypsy gang coming to power in 1920-ish Birmingham, England. Their leader is Tommy Shelby, the family's second son, haunted by the trauma of fighting in World War I. Through fixing horse races, running guns, and all manner of illegal activities, the superstitious but calculating Shelby is very much a modern-day anti-hero: handsome, flawed to the max, and incredibly lovable. The matriarch of the family is Aunt Polly (Helen McCrory), who represents the gypsy half of the family and seems to only get more beautiful as she ages--she ran the family business while the boys were off fighting in France. Tommy's older brother is Arthur (Paul Anderson), far too hot-headed to lead. Third is John, a widower/father of four desperate for another wife. The only girl in the family is Ada, played by Sophie Rundle, and she’s a spoiled princess in love with the forbidden communist agitator, Freddie Thorne (Iddo Goldberg). Tommy's love interest is Grace (Anabelle Wallis) the lovely Irish barmaid who is not quite who she appears to be. There are many villains, but the arch-nemesis is Inspector Campbell (Sam Neill), the Northern Irish Constable called in by Winston Churchill himself to clean up the streets of Birmingham. Peaky Blinders is truly television at its best.
