Yeah, I read the spoiler but I can't remember who you mean by "that guy".
Something that happened near the end of season 1 or beginning of season 2 maybe?

ok. Finished with Season ("Series" ... give me a break) 4.
Spoilers follow ....


Couple of points/questions/observations....

1. I learned to kick on the cc for particularly opaque scenes. Helped a lot.
2. The brits bitch and moan about the accents but they all seem the same to me
3. Alfie wasn't killed. The bullet grazed his left jaw.
4. Why did Tommy kill that guy at the behest of the chick in the slaughterhouse (who was in reality working for Sam Niell)?
5. Did Michael go off to NY and engineer Luca's downfall? Unclear to me.
6. Nice weekly recaps in the guardian https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radi ... he-company
7. Where is AC? I'd like his take.

Season 5 is a bit weird.
Spoiler:
I won't say it jumped the shark, but some of the writing decisions seem a little questionable.

Like bringing back a character who died last season (or so it appeared at the time; now we learn that he didn't actually die, but supposedly he was dying of cancer anyway).

The Oswald Mosley plotline is mildly interesting. I'm sure it's not historically accurate, but there was a time before World War 2 when there was a Fascist political movement in the UK, headed by a wannabe Hitler or Mussolini.

Don't look at my spoiler then.

I will say if you watched the first four seasons you may as well watch this one too.

Finished it. The Mosley character rang true. I have a problem with Tommy being outraged by him though.

The tom hardy character was too good to kill off. I figured they'd bring him back .
