I had always thought we would be getting a bunch of Pirates movies after the sucess of POTC films. I was surprised that it never ended up happening. It looks like Hollywood is just going to try with tv shows instead. Hopefully they can survive.
I'd prefer a pirates series without sf/f elements, but I do like the idea of other historical series that have an sf/f twist. A Western, or a series about a mentalist in the 20s would both be good candidates.
