| Gritty and Dark in Such a Perfect Way
This show is easily some of Tom Hardy's best work.

The first episode grabbed me in the first minute and never let go. The sets and costume/makeup are superb. It's dirty, dank and wonderfully dark. There are just enough supernatural fantasy elements to make it interesting and mysterious, but not so much to be over the top.

The acting is superb, especially Tom Hardy's character. His characteristic grunts and other non verbal communications play so well with his role.

The British East India company is historically intriguing, and lives up to the intrigue in this show. It's interesting to see such a portrayal, one of the primary players in the foundation of modern capitalism as an antagonist in this show.

Very enjoyable show.
