  • This show is getting good.

    I found the first episode a bit of a slog, and the second wasn't that strong. But now I'm really starting to get into it. The chronometer isn't turning out to be as big a plot point as it was initially suggested. And now they've introduced someone worse than Blackbeard as his enemy. It's taken a while to get going, but the show is becoming worth watching. It's only a shame that it's practically cancelled already.



    It seems missed a 4 episode review of this show. Everyone has already dismissed it, likely assuming it would be like Black Sails (which I have yet to see). But it's worth watching even if it isn't going to stick around. It's one of those shows that people only tend to discover after it gets cancelled.moreless

    Interesting plot, but the dialogue is so overwrought. People just don't speak like that! Everyone, and I mean everyone delivers a Shakespearean soliloquy of no less than 30 seconds, featuring the grandest adjectives and verbs almost every time they open their mouth. Over-written dialogue. And giving it a 5 and a small chance to get better.

    I watched the entire first episode without falling asleep. Yes, I am proud that I could stand up to the torture at the hands of this monstrosity. I thought it was an insult to not only my intelligence, but to anyone else out there with a pulse!



    John Malkovich is a way better actor than this rotten attempt at entertainment allows him to be. This is just another example of the typical garbage frommoreless
