A hooded figure rows ashore in the rain. That same figure digs in the earth before he stands and we see James Keziah Delaney – though we don’t learn his name just yet. Next he enters a room in which is laid out a corpse with coins over its eyes – which he takes and leaves.

In the series premiere of Taboo (FX, Tuesdays, 10/9C), we learn that Delaney, who was thought long since dead, has just arrived from Africa – in time for his father’s funeral, and in time to claim his father’s legacy. That legacy is an apparently useless piece of land off the west coast of North America – Nootka Sound.

Fury Road is thinly plotted – a tyrant’s five breeding wives are taken to freedom by a formerly trusted female war chief – but its energy, ferocity and just plain gonzo goofiness take it up so many levels that you might have trouble breathing up there.
