Before my daughter was born, my husband and I would spend many hours binge watching television series and movies whenever we were experiencing bouts of laziness. I think we watched all four seasons of Breaking Bad in a week right before the fifth was airing. We were dedicated to say the least. During those early days of our marriage, we heard about a series called Black Sails on STARZ. Now if you know my husband you know he enjoys ninjas and pirates, typical guy, but when we researched and found out it was based on characters of Treasure Island and true pirate history, we knew we had to see it!
Let me first say that this cast is full of beautiful people. I mean drop dead gorgeous men and women! The show is obviously supposed to take place before personal hygiene was ever a real concern, but even as greasy and dirty as some of the characters appear to be, it only adds to their sensuality. Tom Hopper, Luke Arnold, Zach McGowan, and even Toby Stephens are extremely gritty, tough men oozing with sex appeal. (Zach McGowan’s voice is so hot!) Hannah New and Jessica Parker Kennedy are beautiful and strong women who at times seem to have the upper hand on the men in their lives. (Jessica Parker Kennedy’s accent is sensual!) Clara Paget is a true pirate, but her moments of femininity show her for the true gorgeous woman she is.
The entire series has been building up to this season, and I am so sad that this fourth one will be its last. There aren’t any other pirate dramas on television that I am aware of, so for this storyline to be finished really hurts me! (That and the fact that most of the series we like are coming to end! *coughGOTcough*)
