Black Sails

Also popularly known as the classic pirate's story, Black Sails takes place twenty years before the events in Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island took place. This means that it is created to be a prequel, and this is set on New Providence Island in 1715, in the midst of the pirate age and during the wars between England and Spain for the Caribbean Sea. This also centers on the journey of Captain Flint, a brilliant and most feared pirate of his time. In this series, another highlight is the pirate's story to another level of violence, sex, and grittiness. Created by Jonathan E. Steinberg and Robert Levine for Starz, this historical adventure has four stellar seasons.

    "If your a fan of Game of Thrones then your going to like Black Sails. It has everything; pirates, violence, boats, treasure, and sex. The drama and action will keep you coming back for more. I suggest binge watching until your up to date. Make sure your have plenty of food and drink nearby, you wont want to leave your seat once you start this series."

    "I've been looking for something for months that would help quench my Game of Thrones fix once I burned through all the episodes. Black Sails is definitely in the same camp in my opinion. It's great if you're kind of a history buff who enjoys good pirate stories. It's nice to take a break from the fantasy world that is GOT every once in a while."

    "Black Sails has some things in common with Game of Thrones. Superficially, they are both dark shows with a dark, moody aesthetic. Plot-wise, they both offer plenty of suspense and intrigue. You're not gonna find much out there that closely resembles Game of Thrones. This is about as close as it can get and it's pretty good, too."

    "I guess Euron still has a long way to become the ruler of the seven kingdoms, or even by the king of pirates after I have watched this. Black Sails is definitely one of the best TV shows to watch after game of thrones :)"
