It took us a few tries and a few episodes before we were hooked.I really want to like Peaky Blinders, but I've re-started watching the series a number of times and I can't even get through the first season because it's one of the most boring shows I've ever seen. I'm sure I'll try again one of these days, but...
We've been watching the new version of the Wonder Years, which is sort of the same premise as the original but relocated to Alabama and following a young African American and his family growing up in the 60s. While it hasn't struck the same chord with me as the Kevin Arnold version (for obvious reasons), it has its moments.
Last night's episode threw us a curve, however, and provided a connection between the shows and their protagonists, Dean and Kevin.
Really didn't see it coming, but it had an O. Henry feel to it.
Sounds interesting, not heard of that one here. Loved the original back in the day. Will be interested to see this new one if it makes it over here: interesting time and context for a kid's eye view.
It is not for you. Try something else!I really want to like Peaky Blinders, but I've re-started watching the series a number of times and I can't even get through the first season because it's one of the most boring shows I've ever seen. I'm sure I'll try again one of these days, but...
My wife has a mad crush on Uhtred! He has better hair than me.Puddin' is thoroughly entranced with "The Last Kingdom". I didn't get into it, but hearing it from the man cave it sounds like "Game of Thrones" on steroids. Rape, ravage and ruin! Battles all the time betrayals, murder you name it. Sheeya.... Ain't we got enough of that going on in real life? [Bartender Edit: let's keep away from contemporary political issues, please.]
Finished off "Ozark" last night. I think another example of a show that should have ended after 3 seasons. This last season was about the money not the plot, not the characters...... The only reason we finished it was to see how they tied it all together and ended it. We no longer cared for any of the characters.......no real character development, no arc, just the same folks doing the same shit.....different day.
