Storyline

Jack Holborn is 13-year-old orphan in the 1800's that wants to get a job on a sailship to avoid foster homes. He is hired by Captain Sharingham, and they set sail. Jack was found on the steps of the Holborn catholic church in London, when he was a baby. He was wearing a leather arm band with the name "Jack" on it. The nuns therefore called him Jack Holborn. At the sight of Jack's arm band, the captain reveals that the band looks familiar, but he won't tell Jack what he knows. The captain is now reluctant to keep him. Jack is desperately seeking answers, and is not about to let the Captain off the hook. The Captain also has a twin brother who works as a judge. The two brothers hate each other, mostly because of the captain's piracy side business. Jack sneaks onboard the Captain's ship "Charming Molly", and the journey begins. A journey that consists of piracy, traveling through swamps, and slavery in Bombay. Jack will find his answers, but the road there is long. Written by Annie Gravdal

One of the best series in my childhood
30 November 2004 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I first saw this series about 20 years ago, about 1984 I think, my parents taped them for my brother and me and I still own the old tapes. I haven't seen them in years though as I was afraid I could damage the tapes but gladly the series was released on DVD now and I could watch it in a much better quality then I used to. It impressed me a lot when I was a kid, watching it again now brings up some memories and I still have to say that for a mini series from the 80s it is a great one. Many shots made on sea, beautiful ships, solid made model works, good actors, it got all it takes and I still think it's not only for kids. Even without cgi they filmed on many locations that perfectly fit in the looks of the 18th century, clothing, uniforms and tools make the illusion perfect. It's a bit cheesy that most things turn out fine and too many things happen coincidental, the swordfights between the pirates and the crew of the Charming Molly don't look that convincing than they did back when I was a kid (Braveheart and Lord of the Rings set a new standart in hack'n'slash on the screen) but what the heck, it's still awesome and gets the full 10 points from me for nostalgic reason. Go Jack, go!
