Taboo Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Bloodbath

Yes, yes, and yes! Now THAT'S how you do a season finale! In Taboo Season 1 Episode 8 , we go from intense sadness to thrilling, pulse pounding action at the drop of a hat. I haven't seen a season finale like this in many a year, and the ending begs for at least one more season.

Taboo Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Revelations

Add to that the Honorable East India basically declaring war on Delaney, and we have a great setup to the final 2 episodes. Oh, and did I mention we had not one but TWO shocking deaths? This one was VERY dark, folks. ...Read More...

Taboo Season 1 Episode 5 Review: Rule Of Thumb

Why, oh why don't these people get it by now? You do NOT f*ck with James Delaney. Not. Ever. There were quite a few shocks on Taboo Season 1 Episode 5 , including the opening scene. We got want we wanted, sort of: a beautifully shot duel scene, but with a twist. ...Read More...
