It’s a great show about a Birmingham, England crime family. Four seasons, the first two are the best.

I have only seen the first two seasons, but agree with Brad they are excellent.

The cast is excellent.  To me, Cillian Murphy (the lead character), Helen McCrory, Paul Anderson and Sam Neill are fabulous. Tom Hardy also is in it and he’s superb.

Great programme, completely over the top in an almost operatic fashion at times. Driven by strong characters and acting, story lines that stretch credibility (rooted to varying degrees in historical accuracy) but has a hell of a narrative drive. All the actors mentioned by Brad are indeed superb but so too are those in the supporting roles.

It's often compared unfavourably to Boardwalk Empire over here (another great series) but I think that misses the point somewhat. It's certainly changed many perceptions of Birmingham.

Red right hand!

and I guess you could blind someone with your pinky but not as efficiently as with those razor blades

Patrick Melrose.  Bit of a tough watch although Cumberbatch is superb.  An English addict goes to pick up the remains of his father in NY and goes through several benders.

Enjoyed what I've seen so far.  It's motivated me to purchase volume 1 of the John Richardson biography.

Continuing to watch this. The last two episodes have been very good. I’m actually enjoying the parts about Picasso when he was younger than the later periods.  Apollinaire is one of the interesting characters in Picasso’s life.
