For its final season, Peaky Blinders made some big changes, including a time jump and introducing a reformed Tommy Shelby (Cillian Murphy). Unfortunately, New Tommy makes for a mostly dull gangster. He no longer drinks whiskey, is less prone to settling matters with a Tommy Gun, and spends the majority of the season in smoke-filled meetings instead of making things happen “by order of the Peaky Fookin’ Blinders.” Meanwhile, all other major characters are sidelined (Arthur (Paul Anderson) is especially wasted), and the ending is a total cop out. Despite the typically stellar acting and cinematography, it’s a disappointing end to a generally great series.
