Trivia

Long John Silver was in Treasure Island and lost his leg from a broadside on Capt. Flint's ship. Also Long John Silver's parrot's name was Captain Flint. See more »

Goofs

In the opening title sequence, one of the ivory figures holds a musket with a "spike," or epee, bayonet. Spike bayonets weren't invented until the 1880s, far outside the scope of the Age of Piracy and the series. See more »

Love Black Sails!
22 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rarely do I find a TV series worth my time to follow…..Black Sails has got my attention. Actors are terrific and the storyline is adult and intriguing. The storyline mix of the Treasure Island prequel and true life historical pirates is extremely compelling. It is a TV genre that has never been explored before. I like seeing women in powerful roles (Eleanor) as I think it provides a positive role model. I just watched episode V and I am anxious see what happens next. Zach McGowen, Captain Vane, is doing an outstanding job in his pirate role……and his fit athletic frame is not hard to look at …...amazing shoulders and abs. Toby Stephens is really top notch as Captain Flint…..he brings a passion to the role not unlike how I remember him as a Bond villain. The sets for the show are grand…the detail of the sailing ships is amazing…..the scenery is dazzling. The unfurling of the top sails gave me a rush…..photography was so good. I am glad to hear that there will be a second season. This is the first time that I have done a review in IMDb……..I felt compelled after reading all the negatives from the other reviewers. I thought that the show overall is fast paced so I do not agree with some of the other reviewers (at all).
