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...
