Anticipation has raged rampant for more than a year with those of us waiting for an authentic pirate series. Black Sails promised to bring just that and with a production team that includes Michael Bay, it was a shoe-in that this was going to be the series of the year. Did the series measure up?
For those interested in pirate history, Blackbeard and the Queen Anne’s Revenge.

Blackbeard ran his flagship aground near the North Carolina coast more than three centuries ago. Thanks to my dear friend, Mike Daniel and his team of underwater explorers, the Queen Anne’s Revenge was found in 1996.
