I have been watching Taboo on FX and I really like a lot. It hooked me form the first episode. There are only eight episodes in total so lets hope the momentum keeps going. (The Night Manager started off strong and them completely fell apart for me.)
Tom Hardy as James Delaney is really good. I’m shocked as I have seen Hardy in many roles and I don’t find him to be much of an actor. However, he is engrossing as Delaney.
Oona Chaplin who is James’ half-sister is mildly annoying (aren’t they all) but believable in her role.
Jonathan Pryce as Sir Stuart Strange the Chairman of the East India Company and James’ foe is brilliant. He hits the nail on he head.
If you are not watching this show, you should totally take a look. It’s a little bit bizarre, but at the end of the day it is rather captivating.
