So Black Sails has concluded. 38 episodes of well acted, intriguing drama with pockets of spectacular action.

Loved the last episode, everyone got their little scene, expected fights were carried out and a twist at the end rounded off an epic saga nicely.

"Well acted" - including the dusky faux French bird?

When I watched LJS explain his reasons for Flint's demise, her reaction was understandable, but all he had to say was - "If I let Flint go - you die" but instead it's always the flowery language which dances around the real reasons. Sigh.
Still, she forgave him in the end I guess so all was well.

I was convinced Max was supposed to be Spanish/Cuban.

Max was born into slavery, possibly somewhere in Haiti since she speaks French creole.
Well, blow me.

I sort of enjoyed the show, but felt it sort of fizzled out towards the end.

If you're missing Toby and have access to Netflix - check out Vexed, it's nothing like Black Sails, (the show is a light-hearted Police series) but seeing a younger Toby is quite interesting.

Loved this show. It was indeed a slightly toned down version of Spartacus with pirates.

Most memorable scene in the whole run for me was the keelhauling bit, f--k me!

I’m coming to the end of S5 of Outlander and not quiete ready to leave 18th Century storytelling just yet.

I see Black Sails ended with S4. Did they conclude the story or will it be a frustrating watch come the finale?

Black Sails was wrapped up pretty well I thought. Much missed.

Ah Black Sails. Season one was extremely uneven and seemed to be more interested in sex and violence than anything else, tits and blood all over the shop, then it settled down into a fantastic period action-drama from s2 onwards and finished as strong as it ever was. Awesome show.
