    Default Taboo

    Anyone seen Taboo on the BBC ?

    One of the most gripping and exciting things I've seen on TV for quite a while. Full of brooding and dark menace and a storyline I found quite gripping.

    I've now watched both episodes twice and that's not something I ever do. For some reason I find it totally gripping.

    Did you watch peaky blinders that was a BBC production. The BBC produce some rubbish but every now and again something gripping turns up. Btw tom hardy played the Jewish gangster in peaky blinders and was on a par with cillian Murphy great actors great storylines

    I have Taboo recorded, not watched it yet.

    I really couldn't get on with Peaky Blinders though. The best thing I watched last year was The Night Manager.

    So, I'll give Taboo a go tonight.

    I tried to watch taboo but I just find Tom Hardy's voice / pronunciation so ridiculous I couldn't manage more than about 20 minutes. My wife watched it all and said it was great stuff but I think that's as much to do with Hardy's near-nude scenes as it was with anything else.

    My wife watched it and thought it was a pile of shite. (Haven't seen it myself, apart from trailers).

    No, didn't watch that. Saw a few minutes and gave up. Perhaps I should have persevered.

    My Wife didn't like Taboo as it is far too dark and violent for her.
