Black Sails – Season 4

Black Sails

Okay…. I was truly surprised when a new season popped up of the Starz hit show Black Sails. While i have to admit not being the greatest fan of the show anymore, it is the only currently pirates show begin broadcasted.

I found the follow text describing the show perfectly:

Critics Consensus: Black Sails boasts visual appeal, but the show’s bland characters aren’t strong enough to keep the show from being dragged down into its murky depths of aimless exposition.

The visuals are great in this slow-paced story of pirates and people of Nassau but the story hasn’t got me sitting on the edge of my seat. On the other hand many people do like it and it is one of Starz longest running shows now. (Could also tell you something about Starz?)
