Black Sails tells the story of Captain Flint, the most brilliant and feared pirate of his day, who takes on a fast-talking 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, a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

madman40's Take things

I wasnt sure if i would even like it cause i am a fussy watcher of movies and serries but5 this caught me me off guard with how DAM good it is!... it has beautifull scenery the sets are near perfect for the era and the and the fight scenes are great too cause in a real fight no one walks away with out a scratch O_O... love this show

love this show

I am completely bias, because I love pirates, but I love this show. It hangs up at certain points, but for the most part is historically accurate and has necessary violence to capture the brutal nature of what it meant to be a pirate.

I Preferred the incomplete “Crossbones”, but this has what they call Legs

Black Sails is more brutal than Crossbones, but it's another fascinating look at an era when pirates struck fear and rage in the heart of the Royal Navy as it made it's way to the New World and back.

If you have the stomach for gore, give Black Sails a try. It's got another season ahead on Starz Jan 24, 2015.

While the gorgeously envisioned and fantastical “Crossbones” was more about Edward Teach (Blackbeard)—played by the always excellent John Malkovich—and his legendary communal island, and the obsessively hatred-filled character played by the perfectly cast Julian Sands, Black Sails has new faces and feels more historically rooted, with no sense of fantasy at all.

I like them both, but prefer historical fiction over docudrama. It is, as always, up to you.
