Taboo - Tom Hardy. Ridley Scott. FX miniseries

Postby Blue Jackets » Tue Nov 18, 2014 8:29 pm

FX is joining in on a BBC One production of Taboo, an eight-episode period drama starring Tom Hardy, the network announced today. The series is set in 1813 and is based on a story written by Hardy and his father Chips (really!), about a "rogue adventurer" who, with a pocket full of stolen diamonds and the desire to avenge his father's death, decides to go up against the East India Company. Oooooh, how very taboo, indeed. The show was first announced in April as a BBC One series, will go into production later this year, and should air sometime in 2016.

Nice, I like Tom Hardy and I like FX programming. FX is losing Justified and SOA this year, this show will certainly help fill that void.

Story sounds interesting enough and I like that it's a mini-series

The more I see commercials for this, the more I want to watch it. Might add it to the ol' DVR.

Haha I wasn't even making a southpark joke. I tried adding it to the DVR a week or so ago but it didn't have dates yet so I couldn't.

I think it premiers this week sometime. Unless there was some sort of online early access.

You're right, it's the 10th. Must have been an early access thing.

This is going to be a slow show.

BBC premiere was Saturday. US was last night.

Watched the first episode. I like it and will keep going. Hard to say where it will go after one episode but it has my interest and is well done. Also, I didn't realize they could say "Fuck" so much on FX.

Clearly you didn't watch their OJ Simpson show.

Watched episode 1 last week and episode 2 last night. I definitely understand the show's title now. Plan to keep watching.

Watched last week's episode yesterday. It's so hard to watch scenes where they show the king. They have his makeup and costume done in a way that makes him look so disgusting.
