‘Peaky Blinders’ Is Officially the Best TV Show of the Last Decade


I have to admit, I’m way behind on all the TV I’m supposed to have been watching, and it pains me to admit it, but I’ve only seen a few episodes of the hit show Peaky Blinders. I mean, I’ll get to it sooner or later, I hope. And, by all accounts, I definitely should – because it was named the best TV show of the last decade based on a poll by LADbible.

The poll included more than 29,000 voters, and Peaky Blinders, which is now five seasons into the action, got 29.4% of the vote, beating out Breaking BadGame of Thrones, and Chernobyl as the best TV show of the decade.


Peaky Blinders debuted in 2013 on BBC Two and the fifth season hit the screen in the fall of 2019. The show is set in Birmingham, England, after World War I, and it revolves around an ambitious gang that seeks to control Birmingham’s underworld. Cillian Murphy stars as the gang’s leader, Tommy Shelby.

The creator of the show, Steven Knight, talked about where he thinks the series will ultimately go: “The destination for the whole show has always been the start of the Second World War, so the show is the story of the family between the wars. I really want to end it with Tommy being alright. I want Tommy to be good and on the side of the angels.”


That sounds like there will be plenty more seasons of Peaky Blinders in store for viewers.
