Pay attention because the storyline can be hard to follow in places.
 
Too right! ;D       Well, after last night's episode we can now share our thoughts on who we think the assassin was working for   -   was it the Russians, the Italians, the Economic League, or maybe even someone from a previous series.      Me, I'm baffled. :-[     
There's no B/S on Planet Malc.

I thought it was the Italians because of the knee-capping, but not so sure now.

Just been past the Garrison Tavern.       The boards are off the windows and the interior has clearly been completely gutted.       The single-storey section at the rear has been doubled in length and the whole building is now 2-storey.       No sign yet of the golden dome for the roof! :o

I binged a full season in one weekend.
Great story and even if with exaggerations, great acting.


However, the 30 years gap between the real history and the story makes it a bit peculiar. Cant mix 18th and 19th centuries like this.
Also, is a miracle to me how 1920's brum gipsies were speaking romanian.

After the last episode I think it should be renamed "Porn Blinders". Too much on the sex and not enough about what they are and what they do. I think it's losing it's originality. Best part was the song by David Bowie.

i believe that the orgy presented in the last episode was to display the decadence of the buyers.
however, if you look at all series, lately, they all display a lot of sex. it brings money

Best part about it, it was the last one, Thank god it was crap.
Was it a vision, or a waking dream?

My mate kept telling me how great it was, so it must have been series 2, I turned it on while going through the channels, after ten minutes I turned over, not my cup of tea, maybe it's the gangster like theme, because I can't stand The Godfather either, when I saw him a week or so ago, he said that the latest series was a lot glossier, than the previous ones.

I really liked the first 2 series, they were moody, suspenseful and tough, with great music.

This series is a real let down, very thin on story line, too obsessed with sex. Regretfully I will not be watching the next 2 series.
