We couldn't get past the first episode in Peaky Blinders. Maybe it gets better. I think it is set up in a pretty complicated way, and perhaps once you establish who is who, what the context is, etc. it gets better. That said, I don't watch many series, and fairly few movies. Despite having gotten sucked into Longmire, I probably wouldn't have watched it except that my husband keeps putting it on.It is funny because I can stay absorbed in a novel for hours, and get bored and wander off if my husband is watching a movie. They last too long for my limited sttention span and most are too violent/sad/scary, and I have enough stress in my life right now. I do sometimes watch the Great British Baking Contest, although I am watching my calories and my sugar consumption so I wouldn't actually eat most of what they are baking. (I bake low sugar.) i can't watch more than one episode at a time, though.
