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.
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.
