You Need To Watch Black Sails

Black Sails is the best ongoing series on Starz right now, and that is much to say since the television network is full of critically-acclaimed shows like Outlander, Da Vinci’s Demons and Spartacus. The series takes place several years before the events that transpired in the novel Treasure Island. While it majorly revolves around the life of Captain Flint, his story is interconnected with those of other known pirates like Long John Silver and series original characters like Eleanor Guthrie.

Enter The World Of Pirates

Black Sails is filled with everything we’ve come to love from Starz’s original shows. If you’ve watched Spartacus then you know exactly what I’m talking about. Like Spartacus, the world of Black Sails is a violent and gruesome one, with the occasional body dismemberment and gut-spilling from a sword fight or cannon blast. It is abundant of sex, as it should be for a story of dirty pirates, and when it comes to drama this series nails it.

Black sails contains one of the best written scripts on television, making the show not just another tale of the sea, but a psychological and emotional ride that will leave you rooting for the wrong side of the norm on multiple occasions. These pirates seem more like corporate businessmen than stinky thieves. You’ll be amazed at the intricate plans and elaborate conversations they have, it’s fantastic.

Trust me when I tell you that seven days is all you need to watch all three seasons, maybe less. Season four is set to premiere on January, 2017.

The Starz app is available for both IOS and Android devices.
