So far I see nominations for such an amazing TV show
21 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

I know this is in its first season, but I'm blown away with the performances and cast and sets that these crews have done. The story line is edgy and keeps me wanting more, I look forward to more seasons of Taboo; I love that the main character James Delaney has flash backs and what appears to be some type of gift of a 6th sense to communicate with spirits & see things / communicate through fire as James Delaney is half native Indian / Métis and has absorbed other cultures. I'm not sure if this TV Series is completely fiction or loosely based on a true story (I haven't done my research). I applaud the writers that put this together either way so far so good, this TV series is amazing and one to watch out for at award shows. Great Job 10 out of 10
