Just wait until you see the self-congratulatory director shots — they’re all here. Also Read: Seth Meyers Feels Bad »

‘Taboo': We Finally Know What James Delaney Is So Mad About

12 hours ago

(Major spoilers ahead for the seventh episode of the FX limited series “Taboo.”) “Taboo” has been, for long stretches, infuriating for it’s seemingly inexplicable weirdness. James Delaney (Tom Hardy) has been an absolutely crazy person since the start, and the show was slyly holding back why.
