    Yeah ..got series one.
    Thought it was a nautical pirate series.
    Just finished disc one, and it's all land based. Guess it's popularity is the nudity angle. Nothing authentic like Vikings, or better story related like Outlander.

    Actually as far as I can tell through research it IS historically accurate in overall story arc, probably more so than Vikings, with fictional characters introduced by Robert Louis Stevenson mixed with real persons of the time pivotal in the history. And there's plenty of sea adventure in this to come from that point forward . . . but a lot of the history of piracy in Nassau etc. was a land-based story. It's one of my favorite series of this decade.

    Looking meh to me so far. I guess there's the eye candy. Season 2/3 are supposed to be better. I've not had much luck with the past 3 series I've watched, the other two being Westworld & The Son.

    We're all different. The eye candy isn't what draws me. . .Black Sails and WestWorld were among the best seasons I've watched this year.

    Um, where is the eye candy in Season 1?
    Kate Walsh is the only one I can think of

    Alex and I were referring to the eye candy in Black Sails, first few episodes of the first season.

    I rewatch Season 1 and Season 2 a lot.

    I just can't get enough. Season 2 is just incredible. The tone, the era, all of the elements work like nothing I've ever seen on TV.

    And I uncover another layer or reference I hadn't caught before.

    Last week started Season 2 at beginning of Episode 6...

    But now back to Episode 4 since I watch the first three again last night..

    The craziest story from Fargo is that Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst wound up together and now have a child! Not bad for the nerd from Friday Night Lights and Spidey's girl friend!;)

    I am trying to reconcile the opening scene in First Episode of season 3. A german citizen in 1988 being falsely accused of murder. What is the significance? I know they don't come back to it.

    Oh, good...I thought I was the only person who never got the connection between that opener and the rest of Season 3. I'm glad it wasn't painfully obvious.

    Maybe it will be revealed in Season 4? <shrug>

    Okay... Kafka had a book, The Trial, in which someone was being interrogated by a government official. He did nothing wrong. The government didn't care. He was trapped.

    Much like the guy in Kafka's book, they're all trapped. Emmitt in a money laundering scheme. Ray by poor circumstances. And Gloria by automatic doors that won't open.

    Now... in a separate thought...

    In the opening scene the German man thinks the guy being interrogated was named Yuri Gurka. Who is in fact one of Varga's henchmen later in the story. In episode 8, it is revealed that Yuri is the one who killed a woman named Helga...a murder the guy in the opening scene was being framed for.
