Taboo- Ridley Scott
Thoughts on this show so far?

I just finished episode one.

Didn't know Fbombs were allowed on FX. Found that interesting.

I'll keep watching. Curious to see where this goes.

Atlanta was the first show that I heard them on but they allowed some and censored others so it must be a 1 or 2 limit per episode or something.

Two episodes in, and I love it. Great job on the look of London during the early 19th century.

Idk. The high sparrow dropped it about 3x himself in the last episode.

I fell asleep on the first episode last night. I was tired though. My wife said it was pretty good. I may try and re-watch tonight.

I'm enjoying it, but it's a little slow with revealing the story. I need to turn on the subtitles, as others have suggested. I noticed I could only understand like every 5th word from the guy with the head tattoo.

It's hard to understand Tom Hardy in anything he's ever been in.

On the directv subtitles when he's talking sometimes it says, "hmm" or "(grunting noise)" on the screen

I had a real hard time getting into the first episode and felt like I was watching commercials with bits of the show thrown in. Maybe I'll give it another chance

Don't watch it when your tired as it takes some focus to figure out the dialogue and story line, subtitles help immensely. I like the show, if someone is looking for effortless viewing it won't fit the bill, maybe that is partly why the numbers aren't better. It's better than a lot of series I have seen the last 12 months.

The Prince Regent is perfectly played by Mycroft from Sherlock.

It's a top show for me at the moment. Tom Hardy is great as usual and there is enough intrigue with multiple story lines to keep me interested. It does require some effort to keep up but that beats the hell out of the usual drivel on TV. Could it develop a bit faster? Yes, but I don't find it distractingly slow.
