I'm searching for the piece that starts at 25:33 in episode 2.

I would love if someone could tell me what it's called. It isn't (AFAIK) in the iTunes Album by Max Richter.

Thanks for any Help :)

Dunno how many of you've seen Peaky Blinders, but I think they're two very well-done guys who are resilient, clever, and strong. If they were facing off each other, with a conflict of interest, who do you think would win? (For example, if James wanted Nootka Sound and so did Thomas, which one would succeed?)

My personal bet is on James. He has less family to be hurt by and just seems so damn determined. However, Thomas has a lot of connections and money. In hand-to-hand combat, I'd also lay my bets on James.

This was a show from 2009, which I believe, gives some of James Delaney's mannerisms a beginning. A good performance from Hardy foreshadowing Taboo's epic role. Do consider a viewing.

I can’t force others to watch ‘Taboo’ but I surely can recommend subscriber of this sub reddit to watch other shows who are even more underrated than ‘Taboo’. It will be a 3 part post. Covering three different genres. Next part of this post will be on Feb 21st.

1st one on the list is ‘Generation Kill’. It’s got 7 episodes. And show really picks up after 1st episode. It’s a straight up real war drama based on a book by an author who was at the time with the marines as a reporter in this mini-series. The war in context is an invasion of Iraq. Please for the love of god, try this series out. First episode is kinda slow, but soon you get to know all the characters 2nd ep onwards.

In US, this show is available on Amazon Prime and HBONOW.

Let me know how you liked it, and if mods want to delete this post, I totally understand. This post has nothing to do with this sub. But it has got 1 thing in common - Underrated TV show.

Nootka sound is in America and that’s where Salish is from but James goes to Africa to connect with his roots?
