Anyone watching Black Sails?

Only two episodes in, but I am definitely on board (HA!) for this show. I'm really interested in all of the characters, and it sort of reminds me of Deadwood, but pirates instead of cowboys.

Anyone else watching this show?

Re: Anyone watching Black Sails?

I'm not blown away by it, but it's kept my interest enough to stick around and see what happens.

The opening credits are a thing of beauty, though, as is the sea shanty theme by Bear McCreary (featuring a hurdy gurdy).

Yeah, I've been watching it. Figured I'd give it a try since it deals with the same period and characters as Assassin's Creed IV. It's merely been ok so far, but I'll stick with it for now.
