    For anyone who's seen both, is Boardwalk as good as Peaky Blinders? Just got done with Peaky Blinders and I fooking loved it. Tom Hardy is incredible in it. I love historical gang shit like Gangs of New York and Copper.

    I might have to resub to HBO because the Boardwalk discs only have 2 episodes each and I have to binge watch stuff like this.

    First few seasons of Boardwalk are on Amazon Prime.

    The other answer is yes, Boardwalk Empire is awesome

    Yes. Kind of. There's a point where Boardwalk goes off the rails (last season) which Peaky has thus far avoided.

    What a great show btw.

    He plays a great role, too. PB is really good.

    I have to use subtitles when I watch Peaky Blinders. Boardwalk Empire is great. To think they are both set around the same time. It would be funny if Nucky had a cameo on PB.

    I've got an ear for the brogue. It's clearly a genetic thing. As I'm from NY.

    I hear ya. It got tough for me once they headed to london. The faux-welch was thick. I did A LOT of rewinding.

    I grew up around so many brogues that I actually have friends who speak it and have never been out of the USA. The characters on that show have more of a Northern England accent similar to the gyps.... er pikeys in Snatch or the junkies in Trainspotting. It's not the accent I have a problem with, it's the mumbling.
