I want to endorse Taboo as well. So far the taboo seems to be the former relationship between the main character and his sister who rejects him completely after his return from abroad, but his experiences in Africa flicker tantalizingly in the background. The dominant theme is his contention with the East India Company, as well as the British and US governments to control an island he inherited near the prospective US-Canadian border as negotiations are taking place to determine the line. It adds a high stakes political element to his darkly sinister personal life.
I want to endorse a scifi show returning for a second season. The Expanse is a fascinating adventure in space, also with political elements. The conflicts are more complex than in Star Wars, because there are multiple sides. Beautiful imagery characterized the first season, so it has plot and graphic appeal. I posted praise for this show on the old forum too.
