Did You Know?


Captain Flint: When the king brands us pirates, he doesn't mean to make us adversaries. He doesn't mean to make us criminals. He means to make us monsters. For that's the only way his god-fearing, tax-paying subjects can make sense of men who keep what is theirs and fear no one. When I say there's a war coming, I don't mean with the Scarborough, I don't mean with King George or England. Civilization is coming. And it means to exterminate us.

The last Mammoth
29 January 2014 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

My expectations were high enough to kill a mammoth, should it fall down as it did. What I did like about game of thrones is the choice you had, as a spectator, to choose your own heroes. Black sails already pushes a hero up front: John Silver. BTW if anyone is interested, the french author Xavier Dorson wrote a comic about Long John Silver... Yeah sure you have captain Flint, but he will die, you know. Just not sure whether it will be a backstab or the flu that kills him. And Rackham, "oh my God"!, Is he gay or what? Don't get me wrong, and I don't want to use stereotypes, but gay people are good interior designers, media characters, fashion analysts, for all that I care, but they are definitely no pirates... I did like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean dough ... So for me, I will watch episode 2, but I hope it will not kill the last mammoth...
