Has anyone checked this out yet?

 

It follows  a storyline based on Captain Flint and his crew, twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island".

 

I just watched the first episode and it feels like it could be a good series.

 

IMDB link here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2375692/

and the trailer...

Yep, I am enjoying it. Only two episodes in though.

Got a bit of everything in it.

I've just seen the first episode so far and I enjoyed it. It's definitely got potential.

I like the darkness, it isn't a happy adventure like Pirates of the Caribbean. None of the outrageous comical pirates lie' dat Jack Sparra'.

 

I went into it thinking it'd be a bit Spartacus'esc, but it isn't.

It's looking good so far. It's gritty and action packed. Plus there are no "good guys", every character is a shade of grey.

Did the exact same thing with Lightbox. A good series looking forward to the next one.

I've got this series and haven't started watching it yet just waiting to finish some of the shows I'm currently watching (about 11 weekly shows at the moment not counting 3 or 4 FTA TV shows) before I start watching this. The Strain and Banshee.

Just finished watching the final season. Holy f*** what amazing show. Highly recommended. One of my top favourite shows.

 

If you like Game of Thrones, Vikings, DaVinci's Demons, Spartacus, Uncharted 4 ;) you'll definitely love this.

 

First half of season 1 might be tough to get through, but I promise you you'll end up loving it.
