Taboo Series Premiere: Shovels and Keys

If anything will draw people to Taboo it’s Tom Hardy, known for his portrayal of Bane, Mad Max, and John Fitzgerald in The Revenant. Taboo is different from those previous roles, but has a similar theme as several other shows on television now. Hardy is a big name to attach to a series, but I wonder if the plot of Taboo can meet him. Taboo only has eight episodes in this first season, and I’ll admit, the series premiere left me wanting. I wonder how much they spent to make just one episode. It looks and feels like a movie. Hardy’s performance is compelling, as his character, James Delaney, stands in stark contrast to his Victorian counterparts. They refer to him as a savage from Africa, so I look forward to seeing more of his past revealed. READ MORE...

Taboo Season 1 Episode 1 Review: The Ghost

If you want to see Tom Hardy in full on Victorian beast mode, then boy, is this the show for you! There are a few words than can be used to describe Taboo Season 1 Episode 1 : weird, strange, intense, and inscrutable, among others. Here, Tom Hardy does what he does best: he scowls, he grunts, he glares, he looms, he intimidates. God love him, he has the badass act down COLD. The start of the show reminded me of Revelations: " And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death. And hell followed with him ." ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/01/taboo-season-1-episode-1-review-the-ghost/

FX's Taboo Review

Taboo  is a beautiful mess. FX's newest stab at historical drama is visually splendid as it combs both the gutters and palaces of Victorian England with production that looks as good as anything you've seen on your television. It's a shame, then, that  Taboo  teases greatness but is such a slog to get through in its first three episodes that FX sent out in advance to critics. The drama stars international hunk  Tom Hardy  (Baaaaaane!) as James Delaney, an adventurer who returns to 1814 England to attend his father's funeral after disappearing to Africa where many thought he had died. What the show is truly about remains a mystery after three hours, but it has something to do with James' inheritance of a shipping port in Canada, which upends the plans of his half-sister Zilpha ( Oona Chaplin ) and her weaselly husband Thorne ( Jefferson Hall ), as well as the evil East India Trading Company and its head Sir Stuart Strange ( Jonathan Pryce ) and America, which is looking to rewrite borders making James' land particularly valuable. ...Read More... //www.tv.com/news/fxs-taboo-review-14840946200095100/

Taboo Review: FXs Tom Hardy Dark Drama Offers New Look At The Old World

Debuting on January 10, Taboo is a visceral, brutish and bloodytale of early-19thcentury intrigue that is very dark, very dense, truly novel and very much worth watching. Created by Tom Hardy , his father Edward and Steven Knight , the eight-part FX series starring the Mad Max: Fury Road actor takes you on a journey of curse men, hidden and maybe even forgotten history and a reveals a new way of seeing the Old World. With the once rich, powerful and toxic British East ...Read More... //deadline.com/2017/01/taboo-review-tom-hardy-steven-knight-ridley-scott-fx-video-1201880083/
