OK so some months ago I was moaning about how boring it is but recently got back into it and it definitely gets better, second half of season 1 is brilliant. First half is kind of slow. Now I can't stop watching it. Brilliant show.

S1-ep 10 still has the best sequence so far. I still have a copy on my tablet that I watch now and again, just for that part.

Just finished season 2. Last episode was bloody brilliant.


(Watching this has made me want to play AC: Black Flag again!)

My parents started watching season 1 on the History channel and despite the sex and violence they're liking it

It's not much and mostly behind the scenes footage but it is our first glimpse of season 3.

Wow that looks fantastic, I can't wait. Something to look forward too, to rid the January blues.

Looks good, but I was more distracted by the trailer that followed for the Evil Dead TV show.

Nice start to season 3.

I think we've now learned that each season doesn't start off that explosive, but really just sets the season up.

Its nice to have it back.

Yes, a good solid opener which dialled back on the usual gore/action/nudity but set up plenty of tasty storylines for the season ahead.

Nice to see it pop up on Amazon Prime yesterday, only hours after showing in the US.

Just caught the seaosn opener, thought it did a great job of maintaining the quality from last season.

Two things: Ray Stevenson as Blackbeard? Sold! But what is it with this show and all these pirate captains speaking perfect queen's English? I can't decide whether it's a nod to the swashbucklers of yesteryear where the pirates were portrayed with either posh English or vague American accents, a decision to keep well away from the "ooo-arrr" stereotype/legacy of Robert Newton, or it's just that the show's producers think an American audience can't accept a British man in a position of authority or with great intellect speaking any other way!

The question now is: Will we ever see Bartholomew Roberts in this show? Been quite conspicuous in his absence so far!

Exciting episode this week, especially the scenes in the storm. Their CGI ship/water FX are so much better than previous seasons.

Just watched ep 9 and 10 back to back. What a sublime ending to the season. I'm amazed how low some have sunk whilst others are on the ascendancy.

The very end is a perfect set-up to season 4.

Started watching this on Amazon Prime, and burned through Seasons 1 and 2 in just over a week.

Great great show. Really enjoying it.

Yes, that was seriously nasty but well directed for maximum impact.

It remains still very enjoyable despite the frustration of watching the "good guys" being their own worst enemies!
