Help, I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up | A BLACK SAILS REC

I have spent the last week watching the first three seasons (28 episodes) of Black Sails, an impossibly compelling television show that could easily have been just a blood and boobs pirate tale, but instead chose to let its action-packed historical adventure be the foundation upon which discussions of race, gender, sexuality, storytelling, and the… Continue reading Help, I’ve Fallen and I Can’t Get Up | A BLACK SAILS REC
