This "prequel" to Treasure Island" sure has plenty of sex & murder (not that there is anything wrong with that! well maybe the murder part.)
most of the Pirates look like rock stars or models with perfect teeth, The clothes are more "runway fashion" then historically accurate
And so little of the show is spent at sea & dwells on the political backstabbing & one-upmanship of the main characters
yet I have been watching it......but it's no True Detective!

Agreed about the casts looks (especially their teeth). Some of the background/bit players look a bit more realistic and I wish they spent more time raiding ships and less time screwing each other over politically, but having said all that it's a show about pirates filled with sex and murder so I'm giving it a handicap. True Detective is the best thing I've seen on TV in a long time. I know a show is special when I'm on the computer hours later researching all of the references and pulling my old Lovecraft books off the shelf. Totally different league. But I like pirates!

So NBC is now getting into the Pirate game with what looks like an alternate universe story of Blackbeard, one in which he doesn't die at Maynards hand, but lives on and turns into... John Malkovich.

Now I've got nothing against John Malkovich, but as Blackbeard?!?!?! Needless to say this being a network production everyone looks so clean and pretty, Blacksails plays like documentary in comparison to this trailer:

I love me a good pirate show! But I'll wait for iTunes or Netflix. Commercial TV and I parted ways a few years back, and I'm happy to pay the alimony.

Here's what I'm watching: BBC Sherlock. Magnum PI. Game of Thrones. Bob's Burgers. And one of my new favorite shows, Rick and Morty.

Is Penny Dreadful any good?

I'd love for Constanine to be what the Keanu Reeves movie wasn't I love those graphic novels.

Has anyone seen "Ripper Street"? I marathoned through all of them and really enjoyed it.

Penny Dreadful was interesting & compelling with a good cast
I will watch it to see where the story is heading, it is very atmospheric & moody.

One of the better shows on right now is Hannibal, also Rick & Morty is funny
I give it 4 MeowMeowBeenz.

The new Constantine is much closer to the comic book, so fingers crossed.

That Constanine trailer actually looks really good.
