    This was more like a 1700's soap opera than a Pirate Adventure show. There was little or no action and Malkovich way overacted the part. He was more like an aristocrat than a pirate. Black Sails was much better

    This was by far my and my family's favorite show. I wish that it was given a better chance. So sad it's cancelled.

    Where did I see it before?

    By Pnascimento, Aug 26, 2014

    It kinda reminds of Terra Nova. Like Terra Nova this was a great show that had a great name behind and was too big for TV.

    John Malkovich was a great Blackbeard, but like Spielberg in Terra Nova he's just a person. It takes so much more than a person to hold something as big as Terra Nova or Crossbones.

    Anyway, great show. Sorry to see the end.

    Avast ye mateys! It's a rollicking good time.

    I love Crossbones! John Malkovich makes an excellent Blackbeard and Richard Coyle is a lot of fun as the protagonist. It's not high art and it's not high drama. It is great fun with pirates and lusty wenches and treasure ships and sword fights. Sit back and let your brain rest and just have fun.

    An Action Show with Great Acting, Style & Intelligence--but too intellgent for the average viewer!

    By tinareutermitchell, Aug 02, 2014

    Crossbones is an action-packed story about pirates, supported by outstanding actors and superlative dialogue. The story is a period piece set in the 1700s (or there abouts). The dialogue replicates an older form of speech, more eloquent, polite, and witty than modern speech. Listening to the actors is almost like listening to old poetry. The problem is that in a society where eloquence is reduced to creative ways of using the Big 'F' show is too thus its demise by the indifference of the Rabble!moreless

    Too bad...

    By bipity, Jul 30, 2014

    I was hoping this show would defy the odds and survive, but I see it's been relegated to burn-off, to be replaced by Dateline. I have Xbones recorded but haven't watched yet. But I'd watch it backwards in B&W and Russian without subtitles over Dateline...
