Black Sails 1.02: ‘II’ Review

The season premier of Starz’s new drama Black Sails drew mixed reactions from viewers. In my opinion, it was good enough to keep watching. Like most of the Starz TV series the story has the potential to be fantastic, but will the execution be there. Black Sails might require some patience and frustrate at times, but there’s potential here and it was easily demonstrated in the second episode “II”.

The start of the episode was somewhat of a Starz calling card. Max and Eleanor are a dysfunctional couple. We get it. However, it’s an important start to the episode, which is all about finding Silver’s stolen galleon schedule. Originally, the plan was for Silver and Max to bail after they sell the schedule, but that plan gets totally ruined when Eleanor demands the schedule from Max. This was the breaking point for Eleanor and Max. Max loves Eleanor, but Eleanor loves her kingdom and her ambition is too much.
