Some buddies bought this TV series to my attention, and after four episodes of season 1, it's not too bad!

Basically, it's set 20 years before Stevenson's "Treasure Island" and features the backstory of Captain Flint. The interesting bit is it set in Nassau/New Providence and features several historical pirates - Rackham, Vane, Hornigold, Bonney, etc.

Despite Charles Vane looking as if he's been shot out of a man cannon, it's worth a look.

it is an awesome series, I was hooked from the first episode. I even went and read Treasure Island just to get some of the back story.

Season 3 is now available on DVD. Season 4 will be the final season. An ending far too soon but all good things...

Does "man cannon" mean what I think it means?


Despite that, thanks for the recommendation. The show does look interesting.

Dunno - mega-hunk, six pack, some Fabio hair action, good teeth.

Another surprise is Mark Ryan being in the cast. He was in one of my all-time favorite shows - Robin of Sherwood as a Saracen who barely spoke.

As an owner of Blackbeard and a general fan of this historical chapter I have followed Black Sails from the off. It's good stuff and I am currently two episodes into series three and it is just getting better and better. arrrh
