Black Sails: The Complete Collection | AndersonVision
Black Sails is a Treasure Island prequel. Let that sink in, as Starz tries to create a mature take on a classic. There are shots lifted from Verbinski’s work on “Pirates of Caribbean”, but it works. So much of the series feels like that, as nothing original really happens. The show divides its appeal between the original Treasure Island and actual pirates that worked out of Nassau. It’s a double-edged sword, as it doesn’t make for a bad show. It just doesn’t give the program anywhere to stretch.
