Re: Black Sails

Watched episode 1...found the acting a bit sophmorish. The Pirate 'wanabe' crowd will probably enjoy it..

Re: Black Sails

Good series, off to a slow start, my only complaint is I have to wear headphones to hear what Capt. Vane is saying........could be the noises in my head though.

True -- it is well known that pirates, privateers, and sailors in general restricted their oaths to Darn (durn), Poot, Sugar, and GollyGee.

Also, they drank only sweet tea and never blasphemed. They were courteous to women and most had hearts of gold, beneath the smelly exterior. I saw it in Pirates of the Caribbean, by Disney Inc.
