"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."
