Black Sails

I will freely admit that I started watching Black Sails last year because of Tom Hopper. Because...well, look at him:

But this second season has been astonishing. I loved the reveal about Flint's past with Thomas Hamilton, I loved the new stuff we learned about Jack and Anne Bonny, and I loved how even more insidious Silver became. It's totally one big pirate soap opera, with fluid sexualities, dark pasts, and arms that look like Tom Hopper's.

How is that not a win?

Season three can't start soon enough. In the meantime, I've got Outlander coming back this weekend, and Call the Midwife finally hit US soil Sunday night. Apparently, TV is all about the period drama for me these days.
