Just Excellent
29 January 2017 | by jwstrtmnSee all my reviews

Excellent!

Without revealing to much I just want to say this: Acting is very entertaining and believable. Story is surprising and keeps you on your toes. It's definitely not for the faint of hart, seeing there's some blood and gore. The series is called Taboo and this really comes alive thanks to some good acting from Tom Hardy and Oona Chaplin.

And last but not least it's got ASS (Action, Suspense and a Strong story)!!

There's nothing more to say, just watch it and be pleasantly surprised. I was!
