6 new historical TV dramas (and how to tell them apart)

Black-Sails

(Page 5 of 6)

Black Sails (Jan, 2014) / Starz
Setting: Much of the action is centered around New Providence Island in the Bahamas in 1715.
Think: Pirates of the Caribbean with a lot more sex and no supernatural silliness (we hope).
Plot: Feared pirate Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men take on a fast-talking young John Silver (Luke Arnold), who has stolen a map to a Spanish Treasure galleon.
Fashion: Boots, baggy pants, puffy shirts, ripped bodices.
Accuracy: Michael Bay is doing it.
Problems of the Era: Scurvy, scallywags, and every single goddamn day is Talk Like a Pirate Day.
