Taboo: Season 1 Reviews

  • Apr 19, 2019

    Tom Hardy is in full swing showing the extent of his acting with Taboo. One of the best tv series ever, but with a storyline not for the faint hearted or simple minds. Taboo is a series like no other has been well thought and clearly displays a lot of skill behind its complexity.

    Too long, unoriginal, simplistic dialogues. Watchable.

    OMG! How this only has a 77% rating is beyond me! I LOVE this show! Aside from how much I personally feel that Tom Hardy is an incredible actor, with an unbelievable range - he is phenomenal in this show (that I believe he produced with his father).... I also happen to love period pieces, and this puts such a wicked spin on the usual in this genre, that I have been & am still waiting for it to come back for a 2nd season (which I believe has been announced - at almost 2 yrs later!). Initially I believe the substandard critic reviews, at the time it came out, had Tom thinking it wasn't worth the time or money to continue, after the 1st season on the FX Network, BUT THEN the audience caught on after the fact - and became hooked just as I did, from the start... It is an intelligent, emotional whirlwind, and absolutely not for the faint of heart! It is quite dark, but quite a smart and twisted storyline - that you really have to follow from the beginning... then sucks you right into the plot - with its bent (& honestly, pretty sick - in a good AND bad way) undertones... The whole sister thing makes me want to gag, but all the same, piques your interest into wondering where else it could possibly go from here! The back story of how he came to be who he is, is unlike ANYTHING you have ever seen before & I am just dying to see where else it leads us from here! I am soooooo thrilled that he (& the network) decided to bring it back again for another season - and hopefully MANY MORE to come! KUDOS to you Tom Hardy! I am certainly waiting with bated breath for it to pick up where it left off - with us all hanging and wanting MORE....

    Every episode I watched I wanted more... This was a very original work that deserves credit for its grittiness, attention to details, and hard-hitting characters and story. I very much enjoyed TABOO and wish there was a continuation... I actually joined ROTTEN TOMATOES to rate this show.

    Taboo gets under your skin slowly, painfully, preparing you for a rewarding climax. Hardy delivers and the director keeps you frosty with excellent visuals. Its been months and i'm still thinking of it!

    despite Oona Chaplin's awful performance this is so worth it! Tom Hardy is incredible and the story is fantastic

    Extremely slow start, but gets better with each episode

    A satisfying and dark series in which Tom Hardy can be his simple bad ass self. The end of the season can be a little confusing to how everything is unfolding sadly.. but the plot is very straight forward up until that point. There is much anticipation for what will come in season 2! Great cast alongside Hardy. That voice is top notch!
