I own this box set on blu-ray. I love the first season as an adult, but it is definitely not for children! Lots of nudity as is the case with many STARZ features. Some of the characters are not very likable, and, there are some goofs, but these are only obvious to history buffs. During the 3rd season it starts to drag along a bit…oh well. The ending of this series is fairly predictable, but that doesn’t spoil it for me overall. The ships and naval battle scenes are spectacular!
Pleasant Surprise After Slow Start!
I started this series a few years ago but lost interest in Season 1. However, I decided to give it another go due to the positive reviews… man I am glad I did!
I really enjoyed the building of characters and how surprisingly clever they could be. There was a sense of maturity to it in terms of it being based on pirates which I really liked.
This is a real hidden gem and all I can say is if you start watching this, stick with it!
I thought they ended it well in Season 4 as you can get quite poor endings in other series.
