Well, by winner I mean it's a hell of a lot of fun Good to see a pirate series out there, unwarranted deaths not withstanding (though if you're referring to a certain character who goes offscreen, I have the feeling that's not the last we heard from that one). Also, I really like the Captain Flint character. I think there's more flesh on him that we'll see following that season finale. Oh, and one final note, the effects are great. Only CGI that seems apparent is in the scenes with lots of ships, everything else is real. They actually made what, 2 ships? Entire pirate ships for filming, that's pretty awesome!
