The DVD description is not correct. Taboo DVD has no Closed Captions or sub titles.
Unless you are a British native, dialogue is exceeding difficult to understand.
I returned Taboo after viewing about 20 frustrating minutes.

This is an excellent and gritty revenge story set in early 18th century London that reminds of me of a dirty and realistic Count Of Monte Cristo. Everything about this series is top notch - complex and layered plot, great acting, well written characters and perfectly timed (and funny) grunts from Tom Hardy. The ONLY problem I had is with the sound which, because of either low volume or British accent, forced me to rewind and rewatch several times to understand the ever-important dialog (no subtitles for some reason). I can't wait for season 2 (SPOILER - which will require a complete change of setting and main players)

I always knew Hardy had it in him to play a leading man and this confirms it. It may have taken him several years of small Indie films and some bad co-starring roles but he's finally gotten his dues in TABOO, a series knockoff from the Netherlands. It may start too slow for some but if you're at all familiar with the actor's work, that's his style, slow to simmer until bursting into flame while he smiles creepily sly at you as he walks quietly away, making your hair stand up because you know he's just caught you doing something you shouldn't have.
