A drama following the life of the legendary pirate Blackbeard.

In 1715, the notorious pirate Edward Teach - otherwise known as Blackbeard - reigns over a nation of outlaws and thieves on the Bahamian island of Santa Campana. It's a marauder's paradise unlike any other on Earth, and is quickly becoming a threat to international commerce.

Blackbeard has his diabolical mind set on obtaining the world's first longitude chronometer, which is said to have the ability to drastically alter society, sea trade, and business on a global scale.

He orchestrates an attack on an English vessel in an attempt to steal the device, but an undercover English spy named Lowe destroys it before it can fall into the wrong hands.

Blackbeard takes Lowe as a prisoner back to Santa Campana, where he is tasked with reassembling the chronometer. But while doing this, Lowe also must devise a way to foil Blackbeard's grand scheme.

Let's face it. Malkovich is no Blackbeard. If you want to see the best Blackbeard, on screen ever, it is the 1952 movie "Blackbeard the Pirate." Having said that, I still love this show. I just ignore that it's supposed to be about Blackbeard and enjoy watching Malkovich play a different kind of pirate than we are used to seeing. I just love watching him. He's all quiet and unassuming, yet when he talks everyone stops and listens, because you never know what he is going to do. He's always interesting to watch and he is backed up with a great supporting cast. This show should be called Malkovich the Pirate.

I hate this show. The cast so DRYland. The writing makes you want to fall off the plank and into a Great Whites waiting JAWS!

I understand and agree with the comments made earlier but at the same time it is better than a lot of shows that are on right now so at least it gives us something to watch. There aren't many summer shows to choose from so I'm willing to give it a chance. And as far as Revolution goes- I'm stumped. I thought that show was pretty good and it definitely kept me wanting to see what would happen next. Isn't that what a show is suppose to do? There were also a handful of ABC shows that were cancelled last year that also left me with a huge ? floating over my head. The networks only wind up replacing these good shows with the same old same old with a different name. I guess people don't like to take a chance on new ideas. Bewilders me.

Worst new show of the season. Malkovich is the WORST actor they could have found to play Blackbeard. Horrible acting and weak cast. NBC should be ashamed of itself for wasting viewers time with this mess.

This show is terrible. NBC cancels Revolution, Crisis a d Believe and gives us this junk. Maybe NBC needs to cancel their executives.

Strangely unpleasant. Something's off about the show.
Is it Malkovich's cheesy acting, the moronic sidekick, the flatlining hero or the weird split personalities of amoral pirate killers with upstanding loyal hearts (think Mafia gangsters frolicking at family picnics).
