News & Interviews for Black Sails: Season 2
The stories are intricate enough to hold attention, but not too intricate. The action, which always supersedes the chatter, is the thing, and here it's something to see indeed.
It's worth watching just to see this expertly constructed story build towards a bombshell that, for once, really does change everything.
Black Sails may be full of pirates and prostitutes, but it's really about striving for respect, whether from an unruly crew or from polite society.
Essentially this is pirate drama quite unlike any other. As one of the more willing ladies says to a conquest: "You're so full of surprises."
The cinematography is a beautiful as ever, the costumes - already good - have improved, and the real history of pirates isn't being entirely ignored. And now we love these characters and can hardly wait to see what trouble they'll get into next.
Overall, this was a very strong episode to start the second season. Some wonderful performances all around and the writing was as wonderful as ever.
Black Sails gave us quite a hearty premiere. There were no real signs or seeds of, perhaps, the full scope of Season 2 that I could tell but perhaps this year's run is best spent simply expanding upon the themes that were already previously set.
Audience Reviews for Black Sails: Season 2
Dec 21, 2020Best to avoid, historical revisionism, boring plot. One of the pirates has way too much plastic surgery (cheek fillers) looks like an alien
Dec 02, 2020You know, the ship scenes are so good it keeps you going during some of the horrendously boring scenes on land. The female characters are such humorless nags you can't wait for the guys to get away. How bout more adventure on the high seas and less hen pecked simps.
Nov 27, 2020This series is increasingly impressing me. This series is very tense and spectacular or even time and is developing very well. I really like the roles of Toby Stephens (Captain Flint) and Zach McGowan (Captain Vane) and the action isn't even talked about. I recommend it to anyone who loves action and pirates
Nov 23, 2020This series is a masterpiece, this one is much better than the first, it is just a spectacular season, it reminded me of Game Of Thrones (which for now remains my number one !!!)
Nov 23, 2020I'm surprised, this season is better than the first !!! This series is getting better since battle scenes, violent scenes, more betrayals among other things ... in conclusion it is like Game of Thrones but with pirates and I liked it.
Aug 09, 2020Entretenida, dinamica, dialogos entrelos personajes buenisimos
Jun 26, 2020Great series and original story. Sadly, as in many recent series, there is an inclusive element that spoils the 'historical feeling', by in this case, too much gay elements. The whole cast of key-players is involved in homosexual relationships. I don't oppose this in itself, but by putting the emphasis on it, it appears overly activist. One can wonder why tv-makers have the tendency to lecture audience on identity politics.
May 30, 2019After a somewhat slower season 1 season 2 is where things get really good. If you're not hooked so far give up. If you like it so far - prepare for season 3!
May 07, 2019Great storytelling and adventure with fictional characters sharing the space with the legends of the golden age of pirates. The overarching doom inching closer every minute whilst our antagonists and protagonists squabble and switch sides and roles with every throw of the dice. Quite compelling to watch.
Jul 10, 2018Like "game of thrones" with pirates - i love it!!!
