Peaky Blinders (Season 4)

Over the past few years, the BBC has been very hit and miss with its output of TV shows. But one show that has definitely been earning that TV license money is the immensely popular period-drama Peaky Blinders.

Set in the city of Birmingham a year after the great war ended, Thomas Shelby leads the gang known as the Peaky Blinders. Setting his ambitions higher than just ruling the local streets, Tommy wants to go up in the criminal underworld. After a shipment of guns goes missing, Inspector Chester Campbell is sent to investigate the notorious gang.


Bird Box (2018) Netflix Original

Netflix has had a huge output of titles in the past year and notably, more prestigious actors are appearing in their titles. In Bird Box Acadamy Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock takes the lead role in the adaptation of the novel of the same name.

In the modern day, a wave of hysteria and suicide sweeps through the country by an unknown force. At the start of the ‘Problem’, Malorie Shannon was close to giving birth. Years later Malorie and her 2 children get separated from the group of survivors they were living with.

To reach sanctuary Malorie and her children must venture through a forest and travel by boat but they must travel by blindfold. In the new world thanks to the other world entities hunting the human race they target humans by showing them their greatest fears causing the individual to become violent and to eventually kill themselves.
