TV show description:
This action drama is set in the year 1729 and takes place on the secret island of Santa Compana. Barbarous pirate Edward “Blackbeard” Teach (John Malkovich) reigns over a rogue nation of thieves, outlaws and miscreants.

Selima El Sharad (Yasmine Al Massri) is Blackbeard’s love interest and intellectual equal as they rule the island of pirates. Part shantytown, part utopia, and part marauder’s paradise, this is a place like no other.

Blackbeard has designs on the longitude chronometer, an invention that will change the world. During a massive attack on an English vessel, his most trusted pirates attempt to steal the device.

But on board is Tom Lowe (Richard Coyle), an English spy working undercover as ship’s surgeon. Lowe’s mission is to prevent the chronometer from falling into the hands of pirates — and to assassinate Blackbeard, should the opportunity arise.

Taken as prisoner to Santa Compana, Lowe must find a way to reassemble the precious chronometer, all while trying to uncover Blackbeard’s master plan. It’s a plan that includes a greater threat to the English throne than merely pirates.

Other characters include Kate Balfour (Claire Foy), Charlie Rider (David Hoflin), Nenna Ajanlekoko (Tracy Ifeachor), and Tim Fletch (Chris Perfetti).

This is an exciting TV series in fact very well put together for regular TV. The quality never seen by me on TV of a regular series. John Malkivich is spectacular as Blackbeard. It left me wanting to watch the next episode. As of now I am still waiting for the next episode so please NBC please do not cancel !!!! Please schedule the continuing episodes or better yet please renew and put it in a better time and day of week and ratings would go up. Come on NBC let’s get this program rolling—Take one!!

I think it is very well done, especially for network TV with its violence and sex limits. Episode 9 leaves us wanting more!

Have to admit the show has been getting more intriguing as the season progressed.It would be a shame to not see a second season.
