Everybody’s Chattin’ + Black Sails Season 2 Pictorial Appreciation

EverybodysChattinWinterHappy Wednesday everybody! I have a super special post coming tomorrow… y’know I love the fifth 😉 But before that I just want to highlight some great posts from my fellow bloggers, there are tons terrific reviews of films I can’t wait to see. So well done, my friends!

Let’s start off with some TV-related posts…

Sati has been anticipating Season 5 of Game of Thrones and boy nobody made a trailer post quite like her! Meanwhile, Kristin lists her picks of Best TV Shows of 2014.

Josh is the most prolific movie viewer I know, and his viewing list in January alone puts most of us to shame. I’d be lucky if I even saw half of that in six months!

Wendell is currently hosting In with the New Blogathon where we pick a remake that’s actually better than the original. He picked 300 over 300 Spartans, and I concur! 😉

The year-end recaps still continues. Zoë just posted the first part of her Top 20 Movies of 2014.

Now on to reviews!

Stu reviewed Ex-Machina | Natalie reviewed Kingsman: The Secret Service | Keith reviewed A Most Violent Year– these are some of my anticipated list from this year. I’ve got my press screening for Kingsman next Tuesday, can’t wait!

Meanwhile, these are some movies that’s available to rent either now or very soon: Irene reviewed Calvary | Mark reviewed Birdman | Andrew reviewed The Double

Now time for some drool-worthy Black Sails 2 pics!

I’ve only seen one episode so far as I don’t have cable, so I literally has to go to my pal Prairiegirl’s house to see it. I’m gonna binge watch later March but I can’t help watching every clips out there on Youtube! I’ve got the photo of Captain Flint on his regal Captain chair as my desktop photo, and really, seeing those gorgeous blue ocean is just what I need when it’s a snowy 13˚F outside.

I’ll do a proper Black Sails appreciation once Season 2 is done, but really the main reason for me to see this show is Toby Stephens!! I LOVE LOVE all the flashbacks to his life 15 years prior when he’s still a British Naval Officer. Awesome to see him reunited with his Cambridge Spies’ co-star Rupert Penry-Jones, aka Captain Wentworth in BBC’s Persuasion.

If you haven’t caught up with this show yet, well what are you waiting for? 😉

Hope you enjoyed today’s post… stay tuned for the return of Five for the Fifth tomorrow! 😉

  1. Ha, ha. Love your posts. I dub you Miss Congeniality. BTW, would you be interested in hosting something together? I’ve never done a blogathon before. Maybe a pair review of something? A roundtable?

    1. Awww, that’s very sweet of you to say Cindy!

      Yes we should do something together!! What’s your email, let’s do a collaborative post for Valentine’s day, I have an idea in mind so I’ll email you about it 😉

    1. Hi Jordan! Are you in the UK? I know it’s playing over there as well as I see a Twitter handle for Black Sails UK. It’s like Game of Thrones but w/ pirates, so no cheesy stereotypes like peg leg/parrot here, this is the down & dirty life of the piracy era. Great writing & acting, esp by Toby Stephens!

  2. Hey Ruth! Thanks for the link! 🙂

    I’ll probably check out Black Sails once the series is over, like I plan to do with Game of Thrones. It looks like a great show to binge watch.

    1. You’re most welcome Josh! Oh I hope you do so I have someone to discuss that together 😉 It’s really a great show, similar to GoT I’d imagine, just in a different era. I like binge-watching too, that’s what I did w/ season 1, seeing it 4 eps at a time 😀

  3. Stu

    Thanks for the link Ruth, much appreciated!
    I’ve not seen Black Sails yet but I’ve noticed it on Amazon Prime. I’ll probably give it a go once I get all the other stuff watched that I’m mid-way through! At the moment I’m still ploughing through Mad Men and Boardwalk Empire (plus everything stops for Game Of Thrones!!!)

    1. My pleasure Stu! Yeah just catch up w/ it when you’re done w/ your other shows, it’s worth your time, trust me 😉 There are only 8 episodes on Season 1 so not too overwhelming.

  4. Thanks so much for the link! Gotta love the actors who do TV shows giving us something to stare at and an excuse to actually watch a show….:)

  5. Thanks for the linkage! Some awesome stuff to check out here, and I keep hearing great things about Black Sails and I know a lot of it was shot here on our Cape coast, so I would love to see that.

    Ah, check you, indulgence days are the best 😉

    1. My pleasure Zoe! I LOVE the intricate & gritty storyline of Black Sails, it’s well-written and of course Toby is phenomenal as Capt. Flint! The setting is so gorgeous too, man I wish I could visit Cape Town one day. Did you ever come across them filming btw?
