Toby Stephens Talk Black Sails Season 2 from Cape Town Set

7 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The Season 2 finale of the Starz series Black Sails will air this Saturday, March 28th, and today we have an interview with star Toby Stephens. A little while back I headed down to the Black Sails set in Cape Town, South Africa and got a chance to chat with Stephens about his character Flint, the big reveal of this season and what last week’s tragic penultimate episode is going to do to move him toward being the pirate we know from “Treasure Island.” So much has happened in nine episodes and if you aren’t caught up, there are some big spoilers ahead. Be warned before you continue. Flint has been through a lot this season. He’s murdered (and tried to murder) some of his closest friends. We learned about his history in England and how he became a pirate. We also saw the man who had the biggest influence on him lost. »

He’s on a mission to tell Americans how they should live and think, but he isn’t exactly the role model he hopes to present.

Video: Patrick Stewart Is a Boorish, Boozy Blowhard in Starz's Blunt Talk

27 March 2015 10:33 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Patrick Stewart has a new TV role, and it’s light years away from Tng’s upright Capt. Jean-Luc Picard — see for yourself in the new trailer for Starz’s Blunt Talk.

The promo introduces us to Walter Blunt, a cocaine-snorting, alcohol-swilling, police-attention-getting British journalist bent on civilizing America from behind his cable news desk. He’s loud and opinionated, and he seems to make poor decisions in nearly every aspect of his life. (Exhibit A: What is he doing with those swords?)

Black Sails Season 3: First Look at Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard

24 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The third season of Black Sails is gearing up to be the most galvanic of the Michael Bay-produced swashbuckling series to date. With Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) alongside his crew mates on the Walrus, you'd think that Starz's action-drama, a kind of prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson's famed Treasure Island, couldn't get any wilder, but you'd be wrong. Starz has released the first image of the near-mythical Blackbeard, who will become a major character in the series' third season. Even more exciting is the fact that Blackbeard will be played by Ray Stevenson, a hugely underrated performer who added some much-needed complexity and emotional weight to the otherwise tedious seventh season of Showtime's Dexter. The Irish-born actor also starred in HBO's Rome, and has memorable supporting turns in both the Thor and Divergent franchises.

The Musketeers series 2 episode 9 review: The Accused

20 March 2015 10:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This week's penultimate series two episode sets the stage for a memorable Musketeers finale...

This review contains spoilers.

2.9 The Accused

Written by The Return's Simon J Ashford and directed by Nicholas Renton (who also directs next week's finale), The Accused continues straight on from the end of The Prodigal Father and fortunately loses little of the pace and impact.

Yes, The Accused had much to live up to, as it was clear the Musketeers’ world was about to be turned upside down as Rochefort’s plan finally kicked into high gear. Not only that, but as the penultimate episode of the season, its job was clear – bring everything together to deliver a finale fitting of the highs that the show has routinely hit. I’m pleased to say that the scene is set for a memorable series end.

Stepping into such esteemed shoes as Capaldi’s was always going to be a big ask, »

Black Sails: the surprises keep coming in the brilliant pirate drama

13 March 2015 6:22 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The Treasure Island prequel, on Amazon Prime in the UK and Starz in the Us, has massively upped its game with its latest plot twist. And Toby Stephens has never been better as the mysterious Captain Flint

Spoiler alert: this blog discusses plot points in seasons one and two of Black Sails.

Modern TV thrives on mysteries, stretching them out beyond tolerable limits to keep the plot going; seemingly introducing the unknown because nobody has figured out what to fill the empty space with. A truly satisfying payoff – one that flips everything you thought you knew about a character on its head and makes you want to rewatch the whole show from the start – is incredibly rare. But that’s exactly what has happened with Black Sails over the past few weeks.
