    I wasn't thrilled with the ending to season 3. It'll be interesting to see how they get out of that mess and its ramifications.

    Binging this show now. I almost dropped it during the first episode, but now I'm hooked. In the early parts of S3, it seems like they've risen so far that they'll have to fall far to keep things gritty enough.

    I know the actor who plays Michael from Animal Kingdom. The similarities between his two characters are interesting.

    It's funny, it took us about 3 tries to get through the 1st episode. Once we did we were hooked! I think it's the bet current show on TV along with Billions and Better Call Saul. Looking forward to the next season.

    Love this show. 6 episodes per season is so small but so much happens. Can't wait for more. I'm happy there will be 18 more though (3 more seasons).

    3 more season? That’s great - I hadn’t heard that!

    The thing with series of 6-10 or so episodes per season is that a lot does typically happen in each, and they’re not bound by episode length. So much better than the network model where there is so much filler in a twenty-something, 42 minute episode season.

    I heard Steven Knight on The Gist in February and he said he writes every line of this show all by himself, and he can't bring himself to let anyone else do it. I'm not surprised at the number of episodes per season given that (and how many other things he has going on).

    It's a BBC show. I think 6/season is pretty common over there.

    I'm going to spoilerize this since it says when the series will end (Peaky Blinders time, not our time)

    In May 2018, after their Drama Series win at the BAFTA TV Awards, Knight confirmed his "ambition of making it a story of a family between two wars, and by ending it with the first air raid siren in Birmingham", which was 25 June 1940. He also confirmed that it would take another three series (seven in total) to complete the story up to that point.

    It took us a few tries (maybe 3) to get even halfway through the 1st episode but once we made it past we were rewarded handsomely! We haven't started the new season yet as we have too much other stuff back-logged - we want to finish those so we can focus on this and watch it all the way through.

    Keep trying - it's a great show with excellent characters and plots.
