First two series were fucking great. Had to tap out after about 3 eps of 3rd series, just seemed too stylised and stretched to thin. Plus Major Campbell was the star of the show from the off. Show died with him IMHO.

Sam was fantastic in that role,but Tom Hardy kept it going on his absence and now three of my fsvourite programs have ruined themselves by killing off the best characters.

Twas some thread about his sexual exploits. Shoulda mailed it to myself when i saw it :mad:
Missed that one mate.
I think the film will be shit because Borat left when Brian May insisted on dedicating a considerable portion of the movie to the drivel with Paul Rodgers and all the post Freddie shit.

Yeah , its definitely a shame Bruno isn't fronting the movie.. That MrRobot guy isn't doing it for me at all. I'll still go to see it though

If it’s true about the post Freddie stuff it will be like a bullshit TV movie mate.
I was really looking forward to seeing the midgets with the bowls of coke on their heads.

I know what you mean, when Jesse Birdsall's character in Eldorado was killed off i was inconsolable for weeks.

It'll be interesting to see how deep they'll delve into that aspect of his life. I doubt they'll explore it that much tbh , its just too extreme!
Id like to see them explore the period where he record Innuendo while nearing death. May said he knocked 'the show must go on' in one take and a few months later he was dead.. Some human Mercury was!

Major Campbell and Tom Hardy were two of the best characters I can remember from a series. Perfect casting.

Thought she was fantastic in The Take. Used to give the chick I was with at the time all kinds of shit because of the scene when Tom Hardy spit in her face and said "that's how you make a fucking baby"

:lol:

Weird mate.I’m a big fan of Hardy and I think that’s one of his weaker performances.
TBH,I don’t think it was helped by the guy playing his partner not being very believable in the role.
Have you seen him telling Adrian Brody what’s what in Peaky Blinders?

Oh fuck yeah. I've watched it all since it started. Finished the latest season first week it was out, didn't feel like waiting.

I couldn't stop cracking up at Tommy using the poof guy to bluff him back in season 2.

Filming for the next series at the bottom of my street tonight...in one of the old pot banks on the canal....dunno if they're just using it for a set or the blinders are having an away day to Stoke in an episode.

My lady wants to go down throw her knickers at Cillian but security everywhere :lol:

Looking forward to Hardy completely stealing every episode from now on
So was I. Just got into watching peaky blinders, was looking forward to Hardys character. Bit disappointing in the end, I felt he over acted almost every scene he was in. Whether that was the director/writers call I don't know.

I wouldn't go as far to say he is a terrible actor Mandy.

But his portrayal in Peaky Blinders was that of a caricature, it was actually very distracting.

It made it worse in scenes with Tommy Shelby, as the subtlety of Cillian Murphy's acting totally contrasted against Hardy.

Worst actor to ever live.
