A drama following a notorious pirate fighting for the survival of New Providence Island.

The year is 1715 and in the lawless territory of New Providence Island, piracy is at its height. The region is controlled by some of the most notorious pirate captains, including Captain Flint, the most feared of them all.

As the British Navy arrives to redeem their land and exterminate Flint and his crew, the Captain aligns himself with Eleanor Guthrie, daughter of the local kingpin, to hunt the ultimate prize and ensure his side's survival.

What is your reference in "historically pirates often slept with men if no women were available?" I am curious because this is during an era where it was shunned, unlike say Greek and Roman times. Just wondering your source on that fact.
Is it just coincidence the shows ratings tanked after the homosexual plot reveal?

Great show. And historically. pirates often slept with men if no women were around. Not all of course. I point this out because homophobics are trashing the show. Sad to hear it's in a final series. At least it will end properly.

In support of those who don't like Black Sails pushing homosexual characters on them, I want to point out that there's also the matter here of Robert Stephenson spinning in his grave over the fangirl slashshipping of his characters.
To the idiot and those like him suggesting it's (merely) a realistic portrayal: what a joke! For one, the pirates of Treasure Island were never anything close to realistic, even before all these plastic supermodels came aboard in Black Sails. Fiction is symbolism and parable, and the television version all the moreso. So the featuring of homosexuality on all your channels now is not meant as a realistic portrayal of the world, or coincidental, or even fetishism (though it certainly plays that up where it can); it is an overt effort to skew all our worldviews to an unrealistic but politically expedient perception of homosexuality. If you're oblivious, you're doomed to be a puppet and a tool. If you're cheering it, you're already there.

I look forward to Saturday night to watch Flint, Silver and Vane. A pleasure to watch considering all the useless crap on tv these days.

I thought it was a mediocre version of Pirates until the main character turned GAY - off it went and there it will stay. A GAY Pirate - get real.

I loved the show and looked forward to each epsisode; and then the hero becomes sexually involved with another man. I dumped it then and there, I dont think we have to have our noses rubbed in it and I wont. Too Bad it was great to that point.
