Nick Boraine and Ray Stevenson will have another TV show about ships in common soon when Stevenson appears as Blackbeard on Starz period piece "Black Sails". Boraine had appeared in previous seasons of "Black Sails" as Peter Ashe. See more »
Fairly accurate period piece
Saints and Strangers does a pretty good job of telling the story of the early encounters between New England's pilgrim settlers and their Native American hosts/antagonists. I felt the story portrayed a balanced (accuracy is debatable) view of the plight of both groups. The constant cultural dilemmas, physical dangers, and shifting alliances made for a good night of television. There's obviously a lot of history to fit into 2 episodes so hopefully this will return as a full series. One interesting note: when I read through the cast of characters, I was surprised to see Ron Livingston (of Office Space fame) listed as portraying John Carver? I totally missed him...I'll have to pay closer attention when I watch it again.
