On his character James Keziah Delaney, Tom Hardy said, “All progress lies in the actions of the unreasonable man.”  If you watched the first episode of the FX’s show “Taboo,” you will indeed see the actions of an unreasonable and mysterious man.

In this episode of the Small Scale Life Podcast, I review this new show and dive into the characters, plot and reviews for this new show.  While I do not watch much television, I found this show interesting because I am a Tom Hardy fan.  I really liked his Bane character in the The Dark Knight Rises, and he played a great antagonist in The Revenant last year (which I reviewed here on Small Scale Life). While reviewing a television show is a bit out of character for this blog, I enjoy that period of history, and who doesn’t want to see Bane stomp around London and kick some 19th century butt?

Keep in mind that this is a fan show, and any images, music or story are not my own.  I am simply commenting on the show and characters as a fan of the show.  The images are from the FX, and the piano theme song is from artist Lunar Black’s piano cover song.  Please frequent their sites!
