"The True Legend of Blackbeard" It's 1715 on the Bahamian island of New Providence, the first functioning democracy in the Americas, where the diabolical pirate Edward Teach, a.k.a. Blackbeard, reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreant sailors. Part shantytown, part marauder's paradise, this is a place like no other on earth - and a mounting threat to international commerce. To gain control of this fearsome society, Tom Lowe, a highly skilled undercover assassin, is sent to the buccaneers' haven to take down the brilliant and charismatic Blackbeard. But the closer Lowe gets, the more he finds that his quest is not so simple. Lowe can't help but admire the political ideals of Blackbeard, whose thirst for knowledge knows no bounds - and no law. But Lowe is not the only danger to Blackbeard's rule. He is a man with many villainous rivals and one great weakness - a passionately driven woman whom he cannot deny.

This is an interesting show based on the bond made by pirates; one in particular Blackbeard. This show is an action drama with blood, tears, revenge, betrayal, swordplay and manipulation. Don't bother watching this show, go watch Black Sails.

It's no wonder why this show was dumped on the summer schedule in the Friday death slot it is terrible and obviously NBC is embarrassed by it was contractually obligated to air it. The only character of any interest is the Kingsman and he's doing a bad 007 ripoff. Malkovich does yet another terrible accent and hams it up like nobodies business. No sex or violence or juggs becasue its on broadcast TV doesn't help matters any. Avoid like the plauge.

Highly entertaining, with Malkovich as the psychopath Blackbeard, it is a pity that this show was cancelled.

best pirate show at the moment. john malkovich is an amazingly cruel and witty but also somewhat charming blackbeard leading a group of rough outlaws. his wit is only matched by the wit and cunning of richard coyle. who is also a great spy and surgeon. a great on screen duo with many other characters who seem plain at first but reveal many secrets and hidden agendas as well as truely dark and cruel personalities.

Not a great series. A pirate series which lacks the skill of acting and props. Many scenes look fake with the acting as well as the prop usage, which makes it boring to watch because it is clearly all fake which is not the purpose of tv series. However the idea is good and has a few twists within the series which make it acceptable to watch.

It's a shame this was cancelled, I love Blackbeard or anything associated with Pirates. At least there is still Black Sails to count on.
