Gangs of London, Season 2, Episode 4

Of all the characters in Gangs of London who could act as the “heart” of the story – the player with the most sympathetic motives and framed in the most sympathetic light – it’s peculiar that Season 2 seems to have settled on Luan. More than Sean, more than Elliot, more than Marian, more even than Saba, at this point he’s the character I’m rooting for hardest to succeed.

There was little doubt that Gangs of London would be renewed for a second season: it was a big hit for Sky Atlantic in 2020, to say nothing of the prestige it conferred upon production company Pulse Films.

Gangs of London, Season 1, Episode 7

The last time I watched Gangs of London’s first season all the way through was in the spring of 2020, fully four years ago now, but my memory of the show up to this point has, I think, been pretty sharp.

Gangs of London, Season 1, Episode 6

After the apocalyptic farmhouse siege sequence that closed out Gangs of London’s fifth, parenthetical episode, the first question on everyone’s lips was: how the hell can the show possibly top that in the four episodes left in the season?

Gangs of London, Season 1, Episode 5

Episode 4 of Gangs of London ended on a heck of a cliffhanger, with Elliot bleeding out on the Wallaces’ dining table, while an assassin embedded in the wait staff (Laura Sofia Bach) almost succeeds in gunning down Sean in his own home.

Gangs of London, Season 1, Episode 4

Something that tends to get buried in the discussions I’ve heard around Gangs of London is that it’s a videogame adaptation.
