#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Series Online Free – A prequel to the (fictional) events of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Treasure Island”. The series centres on a group of pirates operating out of Nassau in the Bahamas. We meet characters from history – Captain Charles Vane, Governor Woodes Rogers, Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny – plus characters from fiction – Captain Flint and, of course, Long John Silver. Plot: The pirate adventures of Captain Flint and his men twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.” Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day – a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

Like fine wine it gets better with age
To tell the truth there were many times in the first season that I almost stopped watching this show. But I stuck with it and boy was it ever rewarding. Season 1 was pretty slow to me sometimes boarder line uneventful. I know a few people that stopped watching after season one because of this. But Season 2 has been explosive. Probably one of the best seasons of a TV show out there and it was all due to the character development from the first season.
During season 2 I found myself consistently updating my rating of this show. I initially had it scored a 6 out of 10. Now have it a solid 9. I can’t wait for the next season.
If you are planing to watch this show. Stick with it through some of the long drawn out scenes in season 1 and you will be rewarded immensely.
This is defiantly another winner for starz
Surprisingly, This is one of my Favorite Shows of all Time
Friends have been telling me to watch Black Sails for years, yet I put it off because I did not have Starz (and also because it didn’t look that appealing overall). I recently earned myself a few free months of Starz and decided to give this is a shot, and I am so incredibly happy I did.
Throughout the show, I found myself utterly surprised by the overall quality of…everything. The ship battles are sincerely epic, while not occurring so often as to make them seem dull. The costume design, set design, ships, location etc. are all extremely well done. The creators also got many of the historical aspects of the time correct, much to my astonishment. I found myself fact checking things said or done in the show only to find that they were indeed real or at the very least, plausible. This is not a children’s story; Black Sails portrays pirate life much differently than we are used to seeing in present standards.
The acting in this show is truly captivating as well. While some of the lesser characters don’t deliver their best at all times, the mainstays of the show are always at their very best. From the badass captain Flint to the nefarious Charles Vane, every character feels impactful. This is very much a show about anti-heroes; you will find yourself rooting for the bad guys more often than not. I tip my cap to all the actors involved, as the central cast does a truly fantastic job.
Luckily, Black Sails also improves as it progresses. Midway through the first season, I was left with mixed feelings. By the end of the 4th season, I was stunned and utterly upset it was over. You really become attached to these characters throughout the seasons, which to me is a sign of great character development. Black Sails does it better than almost any show out there, matched only by the very best.
I rarely give out 10s, but this show is most deserving of it’s rating in my opinion. From everything I stated and more, Black Sails will go down as one of my favorite TV shows of all time (and probably the best damn pirate saga we may ever get).
