Black Sails

Starz 2014

The pirate adventures of Captain Flint and his men twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day – a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

Pirating a show about pirates never felt better.

HOLY HOT PIRATES!!! ......Vane can captain me anytime <3

Slow start but the final 2 episodes of the first season have been fucking incredible. Hopefully the show will stay at that quality for season 2. 8/10 so far, great show.

Wasn't really sure what I was getting involved in when I started watching this show 4 years ago. 4 years later and after watching the series finale I sit down to write that this show quickly became one of my favorites. The writing and cinematography are top notch and nearly unrivaled with the rest of the television these days. Just when I thought the show couldn't get better it surprised me and always did. I'm sad it's over but I am happy I was able to experience this near flawless piece of entertainment.

Buena serie, un poco lenta al principio pero el final de la primera temporada no ha estado nada mal. Espero la segunda a ver que tal se desenvuelve todo. Merece la pena verla.
