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!
