Taboo is a documentary television series that premiered in 2002 on the National Geographic Channel. The program is an educational look into "taboo" rituals and traditions practiced in some societies, yet forbidden and illegal in others. Each hour long episode details a specific topic, such as marriage or initiation rituals, and explores how such topics are viewed throughout the world. Taboo generally focuses on the most misunderstood, despised, or disagreed-upon activities, jobs, and roles.
On the outside, it seems as if the Amamiya family of Enbo is a picture of happiness and stability; Yosuke is a successful businessman, having recently been remarried to a beautiful wife named Misako. Their son, Kazuhiko, is in college. But for Misako, things aren't so fine and dandy: Kazuhiko is cold and distant toward his stepmother; the workaholic that is Yosuke doesn't satisfy his wife in the bedroom; and Misako receives menacing phone calls from an unknown stalker while the two are out. As Misako grows dissatisfied and her safe haven begins to crumble, she is drawn into a forbidden love that reveals her darkest and most illicit fantasies.
In every society, there are taboo themes that everyone knows, but they are not happy about talking to them or dealing with people. Here, in Central Europe, we often encounter, for example, the phenomenon of alcohol dependence in the family or in a work community, but as long as it is not very serious, we will not confront him or even face ourselves with this problem. Likewise, taboo counts as our own sexuality and sexual identity, the lust of our hidden desires, the fear of death or the mourning of our lives, the past decades of hidden concealed sins or, for example, the atypical family models. Spektrum's new, self-produced show spans these topics without Taboos
