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 »

User Reviews

Good storyline with fantastic cinematics
14 July 2014 | by AlexanderExtazySee all my reviews

The story is very good; despite the annoyance of several characters whom one would wish to see them dead, but the continue to live throughout the season !

Nonetheless, it's all part of the act I suppose; and the cinematics and filming was beyond incredible.

When viewed on 720 or 1080p quality, the viewer actually feels they are in the Caribbean in the time where the filming took place. The Nassau island looked just as real as it did in the past centuries.

Other than that, I'm sure all viewers appreciated the fact that it took more than 300 people to build one of those ships used for filming the series.

Overall, I'm sure looking forward for another season.
