Re: Black Sails - STARZ Sunday

Last episode ever on Sunday. Things moving fast. Friends who turned enemies are probably now friends again. Circumstances change everything. Meanwhile will one ship even arrive? I imagine so. Will another escape? I doubt it. Will there be a bloodbath? Absolutely. There was one last week. Why be different now? The question is will we see any conversations in the American colonies? None of that last week. I think at least one would be important.

Great finale. Loaded with warfare and irony. If there's a Black Sails sequel, bring it on.

Re: Black Sails - STARZ Sunday

In what will certainly go down as one of the better finales, we sorta find out the fates of our (or not so) beloved characters. In an episode IGN calls a 'masterpiece', Black Sails yet again shows us what great storytelling can truly be like for television. The Huffington posts writes: Black Sails will go down among the most excellent shows of the modern era. In construction and craft, in writing, in care, in acting, and in sheer intelligence, television does not get better than this.

Perhaps Cap'n Rackham said it best:
A story is true. A story is untrue. As time extends it matters less and less. The stories we want to be believe… those are the ones that survive, despite upheaval and transition, and progress. Those are the stories that shape history. And then what does it matter if it was true when it was born? It’s found truth in its maturity… Because what’s it all for if it goes unremembered? It’s the art that leaves the mark. But to leave it, it must transcend. It must speak for itself. It must be true.

Er as Silver said...
The truth of it matters not at all.

For 4 glorious seasons Black Sails deftly sailed the deep murky waters of Nassau & beyond. The writers never hesitating to let it's core characters muddle in the boggy mists of ambiguity. Yet with a clear an undeniable vision of where they were all destined (or not ) to be.

Kudos!
