The tale takes place on the island of New Providence in the Bahamas. This unique place of piracy, theft and outlaws is reigned by the fearsome pirate captain Edward Teach, known as Blackbeard. But a scheme has been designed to throw Blackbeard from his throne. An assassin, Tom Lowe, is sent with the task to execute the pirate leader. However, as Lowe moves closer towards Blackbeard, he starts to admire his ideas and involvement in the rogue society. And of course, Lowe will not be Blackbeard's only enemy. Written by Bono van den Hork

22 August 2014 | by (australia) – See all my reviews

i know maybe the cloths were to clean but the series was one of the best i have watched in a long time. John was excellent as Edward Teach. all the actors played there parts perfectly. Well Worth the watch. As pirates excellent, as towns people great, ship scenes were beautiful, Story line fresh and the use of the extended language was perfect, The island was good right plants for the area for a change. the idea of a British spy turning easiest thing in the world to be leave given the idea of freedom offered by the pirates even the idea that all pirates were equal as it was true and that they voted and followed by choice and not under rule of force but with a strong leader like black beard these men and women would follow to hell and back and all in all a TV series to be carried on and not to far in the future we can all hope. cheers folks you did your jobs to perfection
