they don’t want us to successfully talk about it

my new favorite TV show is taboo on FX.  it loves on me. cuz here’s why:mv5bmtyyntqwnzk0ov5bml5banbnxkftztgwmdaymdi2mdi-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_

  1. tom hardy, tom hardy, and tom hardy are the most amazing actors
  2. i love old white british stories about imperialism, the slave trades, the solidification of capitalism in europe, and the rise of the new world order
  3. it’s indirectly (it hopes and tries to be) about the liberation of black & indigenous people even though there have been scenes that fetishize the black body and demonize african spirituality
  4. tom hardy has some black in him – bet
  5. the supernatural is in there
  6. it’s twisted – he in love with his sister, he in hate with his son, i would marry him and try to heal him and probably end up dead
  7. it’s violent
  8. extremely well written
  9. it’s an ugly, gritty, dirty and raw version of british history that they don’t like to explore aka it’s honest
  10. sankofa … it’s pan-african …
