I'm calling it Downton Abbey for people who like Boardwalk Empire. Of course this is only because of the setting and accents.

Sam O'Neil chewed up the scenery in season 1, I can't wait to start watching the second season.

there's some similarities there for sure. Also the dynamic between Polly and Tommy feels like a bette version of Jax and Gemma. it is it's own show for sure but I get the comparisons.

I really enjoyed her work in Happy Valley.

she's not a lead but she definitely gets some screen time. her character is awesome once they develop her a bit more. she holds her own for sure.

although the more i see from him the more i realize that the Bane voice wasn't much of a stretch from his actual voice. he always manages to be a force to reckon with screen though. i've only seen 2 eps with him so far and he's awesome in both.

there's a lot of different angles going on. camden town, the italians, horse racing, prodigal sons, pro-peace IRA working with the Crown.

i was multi-tasking last night and didn't quite get why they stood up that doofus to go to jail.

also, surprised at how quick the london gangs are turning on the peaky blinders. i have a feeling tom hardy's going to make an example of that "head baker" tommy sent down.

fun stuff as always, though.

>i was multi-tasking last night and didn't quite get why they
>stood up that doofus to go to jail.

only thing i could think of is that they need to let the cops that are on the take arrest a few of them from time to time so it's not obvious that they're letting them get away with everything. picking a guy who doesn't have a criminal record means he spends minimal time in jail and gets out, they basically pay him to do that while the real thugs stay free and keep running shit.

that's how I interpreted but it wasn't all that clear. Sometimes between the sound quality of the streams and the accents I have a hard time hearing certain things that are said.

If you have access to Netflix, I suggest re-watching the show with the captions on. The captions made a huge difference when I was re-watching the episodes for the second season. Lots of little words here and there that I missed were cleared up, which helped to make sense of things.

loved how they teased down by the water by pj harvey all season through various instrumental backgrounds, but then it hit when the boys got the epsom.

haven't been that stressed through a finale in some time. great threads for S3.

man, this show makes me want to drink scotch.

Just started season 2. Only thing I hate is the music. They choose stuff that's too modern for the show and really ruin good scenes as it makes it cheesy

she burned through the first 2 seasons in a day...
she NEVER does that with shows.

I watched first 2 episodes off strength of her recommendation...

anyone have trouble with the music?

Like the White Stripes blaring when Murphy walks into a building in slo-mo?

Kinda distracting to me. First 2 eps okay - hoping worth my time.

Helen McCrory, English Stage and Screen Star, Dies at 52
Alex Ritman 1 hr ago


Helen McCrory, the English stage and screen star who appeared in three Harry Potter films, alongside The Queen, Peaky Blinders and Skyfall, has died. She was 52.

Her husband, actor Damian Lewis, broke the news on Friday.

“Heartbroken to announce that after an heroic battle with cancer, the beautiful and might woman that is Helen McCrory has died peacefully at home, surrounded by a wave of love from friends and family,” he wrote in a Twitter post. “She died as she lived. Fearlessly. God we love her and know how lucky we are to have had her in our lives. She blazed so brightly. Go now, Little One, into the air, and thank you.”

A regular across stage, TV and film since the 1990s (her first film role was in 1992’s Interview With a Vampire), McCrory first made a name for herself in U.K. theater, landing a London Evening Standard award for best actress in 2002 for Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, and an Olivier Award nomination in 2006 for As You Like It.

Following roles in Charlotte Gray and Casanova, her film career hit a high note with her portrayal of Cherie Blair in Steven Frear’s royal biopic The Queen, which saw her earn best supporting actress nomination in 2006 from the London Critics’ Circle. She reprised the role in the follow up, 2010’s The Special Relationship.

McCrory had been due to play Bellatrix Lestrange in 2007’s Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, but was forced to pull out due to her first pregnancy (the role went to Helena Bonham Carter). However, she was later cast as Bellatrix’s sister Narcissa Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and also appeared into the final two-films of the franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Parts 1 and 2. Other notable films include Skyfall, playing a British MP, Hugo, as French actress Mama Jeanne, and the Alan Rickman-directed period drama, A Little Chaos.

In 2013, McCrory was cast in one of her most famous roles, Shelby family matriarch Polly Gray in Peaky Blinders, appearing in all five seasons of Steven Knight’s hit crime drama that have aired so far. Most recently she was seen as a lawyer in the hit ITV miniseries Quiz, based on the 2001 scandal surrounding the U.K.’s Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? TV competition, and in the BBC thriller Roadkill alongside Hugh Laurie

Pretty hard to see the show going forward without her. She was the lone strong legitimate female presence on the show that held her own throughout all five seasons IMO. She provided a nice balance with all the testosterone that domineered the majority of the show's plot points.
