When the posse is searching with dogs in "the wrecks" for John Silver it is clearly seen that at one point they have at least one Belgian Malinois dog. This breed was not developed until the 1890's by the Belgian School of Veterinary Medicine as a group of herding dogs including the Tervuren, Malinois, Laekenois, and the Groenendael. See more »

Wow. Just Unbelievable.

Black Sails once again gives Game of Thrones a run for its money in one of the show's best episodes to date. I don't remember watching anything like this; the combination of subtlety, dialogue, and sheer brutality of the events that transpire are parallel to none, save for Rains of Castamere. The writing is Shakespearean-esque, and equates to watching a novel in the form of a top production TV show.

I can't help but question the writers' decision in offing a major character so early in the season; it will be interesting to see how things play out after a somewhat underwhelming start. XXXI is a gem by itself however; one of the series' best offerings thus far.

Onward we sail...

P.S. Ignore the pretentious history buffs. This is not a documentary, nor does it proclaim itself to be. It's a TV show based on a CHILDREN'S BOOK which draws INFLUENCE from historical events. Stop picking your noses.
