The first episode is out now. The show is produced by Michael Bay, so imagine Michael Bay producing Pirates of the Caribbean and mix it with Spartacus and that's this show. It's entertaining, I'll continue to watch.

I enjoyed the pilot, will keep watching. Feels like a series adaptation of Assassin's Creed 4.

I liked the pilot as well.

But, ummmm, when does this show resume? Why did they show the pilot weeks before another episode?

Yeah Starz gave Andy cancer.

The final season of Spartacus was amazing and well worth watching. I loved Andy in the role but the show itself was better.

^agreed.

And I see what happened. Starz put Black Sails' first episode on their InDemand channel over a week ahead of it's "premier".

Anyone watching?

This past episode (V.) has been the best episode yet. After a few slow paced episodes we get some legit ship vs. ship action.

I love the series, it does start out slow but the ship v. ship combat alone is worth it, I just hope they get to the Spanish ship this season

^ Yeah I hear ya...I guess I just lost interest after they killed Jimmy off, and the contrast parlor music in the background grated on me.

they're making a big deal about whether or not to raise topgallants and their royals are up in the next shot

The cringles don't have to be fastened to the yard arms. They can be secured with sheet and tack lines.

all square sails other than the courses are fastened to yard arms (using sheets, of course). tacks don't pull clews out to the ocean, and tacks don't come into play when you're sailing large (teehee)

the second half of the season was wayyy better than the first half. it really took them too long to get into the action.

If Season 1 were as entertaining as Season 2 has been thus far, then this show would be much more popular

I love sailing shows and I am still mired in the first three or four episodes and have little motivation to watch more. Trying to slog it out and get to the good stuff.

I think it is interesting, that of the picture that was posted above of the CGI ship, that no one noticed (or pointed out) that the banners at the top of the masts are blowing the wrong way. They should be downwind, not upwind.

It is very normal to see old paintings with the billowed out sails where the artist got it wrong. Looks like the CGI guys need some help.

On the show... I just personally don't care for pointless nudity and sex. If it makes sense as part of the storyline, fine. But ALL the Starz shows that I have started watching, there is pointless nudity and sex just 'thrown in' to appeal to a certain viewer. It isn't me, so I stopped watching after the third episode.

haha every girl on this show is lesbian / bi it seems like

I finished season 1 and started season 2.

I really think they ripped a lot of their content off of AC: Black Flag right down to shit that the crew members shout "ITS A MAN O WAR CAPT'N!" and referencing "once they see the black flag..."

Anyone else on Tdub still watching this? Season three has been solid as hell so far.

This is possibly one of my top 3 shows. Definitely top 5.

I really am sick of Guthrie and her french lady with the shitty eyeliner

I was rooting for them at some point, but they annoy the shit out of me and I kind of hope they get murdered
