Captain Flint: This is how they survive. You must know this. You're too smart not to know this. They paint the world full of shadows... and then tell their children to stay close to the light. Their light. Their reasons, their judgments. Because in the darkness, there be dragons. But it isn't true. We can prove that it isn't true. In the dark, there is discovery, there is possibility, there is freedom in the dark once someone has illuminated it. And who has been so close to doing it as we are right now?

Amazing but could be great..
4 May 2017 | by akshatdaveSee all my reviews

No spoilers.. Black sails has always been one of the shows that has episodes that are gripping and dark.The end was completely unpredictable. All actors were good especially Toby..From the on-set it's important to state that popular series like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad first premiered on television to a very small audience and eventually became global hits as word got around. They started off as highly complicated, seriously involved and slow sleeper narrative drama's, but soon audiences were drawn into their worlds with their complex, layered and multi-faceted characters. I truly believe that the above certainly applies to this new gritty TV series. Sure, there's the expected sex, violence, nudity and profanity, but not for one moment is this gratuitous and uncalled for in the specific style and genre of this period piece. The amazing sets, costumes and general attention to intricate detail is astounding and I believe, quite unique and unexpected for original cable television production. Some critics initially expected this Michael Bay production to be meaningless, non-stop action sequences with very little depth, storyline and character development. While other reviewers offered that there was perhaps not enough action and too much conversation and multi- layered story-lines. I honestly see this series offering audiences everything that they'd expect, want and desire in an action drama.This episode gives us hope for another season.And I truly want season 5.this is TV at it's best..
