Black Sails

Anyone watched this series from a few years back on Starz?

I finished Game of Thrones and went straight into Black Sails, and so far, I love it! (just finished season one)

Yes, it's really good. For whatever reason I never finished the series, I started watching season 4 but only watched 3 or 4 episodes and never went back. It was good though, more my fault for letting it slip out of my consciousness. I'm pretty lazy about keeping up with tv shows sometimes and it's not the show's fault.

So many good characters though, Jack Rackham is my favorite.

Yeah, I actually watched season one and 2 when we had Starz in our cable package, then lost track of it. Starting over, and like it more now than the first time I saw it. Glad there are two seasons I haven't seen yet, will be that much more fun after season 1 and 2...

Black Sails felt like a soft core porn.

I have heard that same comment describing Spartacus which I haven't seen, must be a Starz thing. I watched Black Sails and liked it but I like a lot of those period dramas like Vikings, Deadwood, Rome, etc.

Actually, there is just as much sex, if not more, in Game of Thrones if you want to be honest about it... lol

I definitely agree. Starz just has a different feel to it. Can’t put my finger on it.

Through 3 seasons of The Wire, outstanding. Never had HBO, so sometimes takes a while to circle back to watch their shows, no idea why it took me THIS long though. Probably a top 5 all time series for me.

The best night of television in my adult life was Thursdays on NBC during the 2009-2010 season:

The Office
Parks & Rec
30 Rock
Community

That was the last time I regularly sat down for live TV. I challenge anyone to name a better 4-show lineup.

Because you’ll probably look it up: Friends and Seinfeld have been paired together (94-98), Friends and Frasier have been paired together (98-00), Seinfeld and Frasier have been paired together (93-94), but all 3 were never regularly aired on the same night during the same season.

Loved that night as well, minus 30 Rock, I always skipped that one. I find Alec Baldwin to be a total douche, and can't watch him. The show might be good, but I can't get past him, so I'll never know.

This is on my "to do" list as well. Everyone who I have ever talked to has loved it!

I suggest "The Shield and NYPD Blue" as well if you haven't seen them yet.

NYPD Blue is one of my all time favorites.

I feel like when I was in middle school circa the early 90s that The Simpsons, In Living Color, Married With Children & one more, maybe Herman's Head?, were all on Fox Sunday nights.

Simpsons and Married with Children were a Sunday nights staple for me in 89, 90 and 91ish.

I’m not really an Alex Baldwin fan either (nor a qualified judge of talent), but he absolutely crushed this role. You and I seem to have similar tastes in television (The Goldbergs, am I right?). I think you’d dig 30 Rock if you gave it a try.

Yup, I'm a Goldbergs guy for sure!

My wife and I love the Goldbergs and we have taken to the sequel of Schooled as well.

Not sure if anyone is still watching, or cares, but I can't wait for the new season of Walking Dead!

Stopped watching that when they killed more humans than zombies. It really just got boring at that point. Then when Rick and Carl went? Yeah, felt they were integral parts of the show. I always figured I would go back and watch it on Netflix until they went.

Rick didn't go, he's alive, just not on the show. He'll be back at some point, maybe the final season...
