This is going to be epic.
Crossbones (TV Series 2014â€“ ) - IMDb
John Malkovich as Blackbeard.
Looks way better than Black Sails. I look forward to it.
Starts tonight 10 pm
looks kinda boring for a swashbuckling show. although malkovich as a pirate sounds interesting.
this has all the signs of having a big cool mystery that never pays off as it gets cancelled after 12 shows
this better hold up to canon aka Assassins Creed 4
Am I the only one that thought the preview clip looked like something filmed for youtube?
I think (based on the pilot episode) it suffers from the TV14 rating. A MA rating and John Malkovich would make for a great series (if he really got into it).
It was okay, nothing special but not horrible. I'll be surprised if it makes it to season 2.
The fact that they felt the need to explain the first five minutes of the show immediately after it happened doesn't make me very optimistic about the writing.
I will watch a couple more episodes and hope the first episode was a character introduction and nothing more.
i actually started watching this and i got bored with the opening narration, reminded me of the intro to everquest, so i changed the channel.
Had a few good lines.
It's summer television. Won't be around long. Probably won't be back next year. PIRATES!
I like it more than that other pirate show, but don't have much to go on.
I think what made it not great for me was that the whole 18th century pirate/British Navy theme felt like only window dressing and at its core it just wants to be like so many contemporary shows you see set in modern times where you have some super smart/capable/everyman action-spy guy go in after the magic McGuffin technology thingy. The setting in this case is just for show and didn't seem to matter much.
Take for example Deadwood, where the setting is everything. ' A wild, anything-goes-mining town struggles to deal with mass change as outside influences (Federal govt and Hearst) seek to take control and reign it in'. Brilliant historical fiction.
So far this felt like Jack Baur starring in Assassin's Creed.
It was a lot better tonight, next weeks looks like it might be good.
It's like someone watched Black Sails and said "I could tweak this a bit, do it for less money and on top of it I can even get John Malkovich!". It's a shame they didn't allocate that budget savings towards the writing team.
Watched the first episode. Show is bad. Production wise, reminds me of Stargate: Atlantis, and not in a good way. Gets better?
I'm going to guess a mid-season cancellation.
What a horrible show, top to bottom.
It got moved to Saturday nights. Its done
Totally forgot about this thing. Was malkovich at least worth tuning in?
