Black Sails returns 2015

The finale was awesome! So, I'm glad it got renewed.

Did anyone else like this show?

Uh, it got renewed 5-6 months before the S1 premiere based on audience reaction at Comic Con(?).

And, yeah, I liked the show.

I thought it was awful. The way the characters behave -- particularly in relation to who has power -- is absurd. It seems like the show was written by someone who has no clue at how people behave, and how power is maintained, when there is no civilization.

Yeah, where would we be without various degrees of slavery, serfdom, and crippling taxation? Why, things would just fall apart.

The last 5 episodes are stacked up on my TiVo. I sort of lost interest, not sure I'll be going back.

I thought it started off kinda meh, and then got better and better. I went from watching it when I was caught up on everything else (at one point I had three episodes stacked up) to, the last couple weeks, watching it on Saturday.

I fell asleep during both of the last two, so I doubt I'll go back.

That was the finale? Bummer.

For a show about "The Golden Age of Piracy" there wasn't really much piracy going on in the series.

LOL, I did not know that was their finale either.

I watched them all, usually within a day of OAD, but I'm not certain I would be back for S02. Max, could convince me though. :::swoon:::

Spoiler for those who haven't seen the last episode and a quesiton

Spoiler:
Did it just turn into "Treasure Island"? I'm not familiar with the book, having only seen various filmed versions (including the Muppet one), but they are on an Island, there is a lot of treasure and there is Long John Silver and others.

It's supposed to take place 25 years before Treasure Island.

There could have been more action but I liked it enough to watch again next season. The finale seemed more like the episode before the finale than an actual finale.

It did seem 1-2 episodes short of a full season. The 2nd season order is for 10 episodes.

I thought that that was the the point of the series.

Wait.. I only have 5 episodes total, and the last one that aired was 2/22/2014. Was there more than that?


edit: It appears that when I migrated to the new DVR last month I missed setting that season pass back up. Fortunately they all appear to be in Starz on Demand. Thanks to this thread or I'd have missed them completely.

Please do not "Fixed Your Post" on my posts. I find that rude and annoying. Thank you for your consideration.
