There’s a lot of media here to keep us warm through December, but I’m most excited about season 4 of Peaky Blinders finally coming to the US on the 21st. I’ve been watching the antics of Cillian Murphy’s Tommy Shelby & Co. for so long I feel a little bit like a member of one of TV’s most dysfunctional families. Peaky Blinders—set in the aftermath of World War I, in crime-ridden and gang-ruled Birmingham—can be breathtaking, nerve-shattering television, or it can go way too far into its orgy of violence and become way too self-indulgent, but it’s never not compelling and nail-biting.

I thought that last season was the most uneven yet, but even a lingering doubt about the longevity of the series won’t keep me away. No, I’m cranking up the Nick Cave right now to prepare myself for this. (OK, granted I am never not listening to Nick Cave, but today it’s with extra emphasis.)

What jumped out at you on December’s roster?
