Americans are only discovering Peaky Blinders now and it's blowing their minds
By order of the Peaky Blinders!
Given the fact that Season 4 of Peaky Blinders has only just arrived in the US, it's not too surprising to learn that some of our cousins across the Atlantic aren't too familiar with the Shelby gang.
Obviously, if you haven't seen the show then there are spoilers below.
As the most recent episode ended, it's clear that Tommy has his eye fixed on America and a potential deal with Al Capone. Given the fact that Steven Knight's show is so intrinsically British, we were curious to see what Americans made of the superb drama.
Here's what we discovered...
Even famous rappers are yet to be introduced to the Shelby family.
Anybody watch Peaky Blinders?

First things first, let's get the obvious out of the way.
Started watching Peaky Blinders. I’m ashamed in myself that I’ve waited this long...

I resisted long enough. I finally started Peaky Blinders. I’m only flesh and blood.

Naturally, some people fell in love with it instantly.
I firmly believe that Peaky Blinders is the greatest show ever.

I’m probably really late. But Peaky Blinders is dope and I’m only 3 episodes in.

The number of cigarettes that they all smoke came up.
They smoked so much on 'Peaky Blinders" did they use actual cigarettes? Seems like anyone that came off that production would have stage 2 lung cancer!!!!

Some Yanks think they've recognised Cillian Murphy from something else?
Hey @FeitsBarstool you got me hooked on peaky blinders but all I can think of while watching is scarecrow from batman.

Regardless, let's just admit that the Irish actor is exceptional.
how has Cillian Murphy not been nominated for a golden globe in Peaky Blinders?!?!?!

This being said, some people just packed the show in.
Watched the first 8 episodes of Peaky Blinders and I gave up. Nothing happened and everyone was the same kind of broody 🛌🏻

The bad guys in this season of peaky blinders are non-sensical.

The Brummie accent didn't go down to well with some.

How do they feel about the new season?
season 4 of Peaky Blinders is a nonstop thrill ride and i can’t STAND that more people aren’t watching this show and talking about it with me
— Katy Stoll (@katystoll) January 4, 2018
Holy crap Peaky Blinders Alabama Gold is Petyr Baelish from GOT, talks exactly the same but they look completely different. That voice was freaking me out until I got it.

The overall impression?
— Harrison Bryan (@HarrisonBryanNY) January 9, 2018
Tom Hardy's character on Peaky Blinders (I refer to him as Solomon the Jew) is amazing
— Ben (@Nebkreb) January 6, 2018
