I’ll just come out and say it – when it comes to pirates, Disney has run its course. They kicked serious ass with Curse of the Black Pearl, but it’s been in decline ever since (first gradual, and then with On Stranger Tides damn near freefall.) If pirates are going to level-up in the near future, it’s going to be up to someone other than the mouse. And this new trailer for Black Sails… I’d say we have a contender in the running.
Haven’t there been a million different pirate TV shows / movies promised that have never been made? Until this officially airs, I’m not holding my breath.
Trust me, it is airing in January. I work on the show. And it’s awesome. Truly, these are real pirates, not some silly fantasy. Expect grit.
Saw the first two episode. With a TV show about pirates and brothels, how can you go wrong? Horrible writing. Monotanous dialogue. No action sequences. It’s boring! Some say there’s too much gratuitous nudity, but I say that’s the only thing going for it! If episode 3 doesn’t pick up the pace, I’m giving up!
