Trivia

After the first sea battle, Gates and Defresne are discussing the net profits that could be expected. Defresne said after injury payments it would be $8 per man. Pirates did actually have a generous disability insurance package. A pirate would get 100 pcs of eight for the loss of an eye or finger, 400 for a left leg, 500 for a left arm or right leg, 600 for a right arm. 1 pcs of eight is worth approximately 0.96 usd in today's money.

Pirate's Life for me
30 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have no idea what I've just seen. The story opens immediately to scenes of battle and slowly introduces the viewers to a whole myriad of characters. I can not make up my mind who is bad, who should I back and who should I despise. What a packed first episode. I am really excited to see what Starz has created here.. I can already tell I am in for some really exciting television. The back story, a messy plot, secret agendas, and this was just the first episode!! Cant wait to see whats in store for us as this progresses!
