I'm always down for anything Pirate-related. I'm on board for this one.

Was it REALLY necessary to make this a freaking PREQUEL?

I was really excited when I first heard about it, but now... I dunno.  I guess we're due for a bad*ss hard pirate show, but... how do I get the feeling of "same old same old" already when I've never SEEN anything like this before?  Maybe it's more a feeling of "well, this is what I expect" rather than "wow, I DIDN'T expect that!"  Which I must have really been wanting (how can I expect something I can't expect?)

Since it's being produced by Starz, I'm counting on it basically being soft  p o r n  set on the high seas in the same way that Spartacus was in Rome and the Colosseum. Does that make it better or worse? Who's to say. I don't mind seeing hot naked chicks, but I certainly don't want it to become a crutch to carry the show. Give me solid writing and some decent set pieces and I'll be on board with it. If it fails on either, naked chicks will only sustain the show for a little bit before I'd end up bailing on the show. I think it's a bit too early to worry about this show being akin to "been there done that". Give it a couple of episodes and if it doesn't work for you then, there's always a bounty full of  t i t s  to get you to next week.

I think if there were sexy pirate wenches in the show, they would have popped up in the preview.  And I could be all for pirate wenches.

You know, seeing that it's the origin of Long John Silver... I think that hurts it a little in my head b/c it means that dude can't die.

Yeah, but if it's historically accurate, they might not be the kind of pirate babes you wanna see gettin' it on.   This is what popped in my head:


Of course, since the flick came out when I think sexy pirate babe I think Jessica Alba in Into The Blue.

Check out Spartacus and tell me how historically correct that is. Most of them look like Penthouse Pets, which I'm A-Ok with. Sure, they have a few "normal" looking chicks in there, but for the most part, it's hire the hottest chicks you can and put them in front of a camera.

I still haven't checked out Spartacus.  I've seen some caps though.  I could be down for that.  I mean, I know it won't come out like "Pirates" but I don't want that.

Even though I enjoyed Pirates Of The Caribbean movies (I'm still surprised at that revelation myself), I don't want Black Sails to look anything like them at all.

No, I'm talking about that big-budget dirty flick from a couple of years ago that shot on the Bounty before it sank.

Yeah, I wouldn't want BS (there's an unfortunate acronym) to look like POTC either, though if one of the wenches were to look like Keira Knightley, I wouldn't complain.
