Started watching Black Sails, I finished the first season around two days ago and now I’m on season two completely hooked. I had a mixture of feelings regarding this show due to everything I heard about it, basically it was 50/50, some loved it and some hated it. I fell in love the moment I saw the beautiful vison.
Let’s start with the phenomenal acting by each and single one of the cast, it’s mesmerizing watching Captain Flint (Toby Stephens), his acting is like nothing I have ever seen before, how he hasn’t done major blockbusters, more tv shows and movies is beyond me, the man is pure talent. The intensity in his eyes and gestures in this show is simply flawlessly. John Silver (Luke Arnold) another lovable character, his adoring charming personality and quick tongue is a joy to watch, so are his face expressions in every scene. And Captain Vane’s (Zach McGowan) voice does something to me, that even porn cannot do.
Just watching them act is so fascinating itself that that is reason enough to even watch the show, to watch them in character, to watch their faces, the way they express every emotion is almost magical. The scenery is stunning, the island and caribbean blue/green water makes you just wanna close your eyes dream away. The vision is just as beautiful, from the ships to the outstanding costumes.
One thing, is that I do not know if it is only me, but it feels like Sons of anarchy, on deck! Captain Flint and his crew being Samcro and Captain Vane and his crew being the Mayans. You got the amazing thrilling drama and the sexual tension is better than Fifty Shades. I mean Captain Vane and Eleanor Guthrie (Hannah New) are just impossible to put into words. Those two need more sex scenes together!
I cannot wait to see how it’ll play out and continue, but am looking forward to find out and excited for the next season to come! Strongly recommened!
