| One of the best series in my childhood
I first saw this series about 20 years ago, about 1984 I think, my parents taped them for my brother and me and I still own the old tapes. I haven't seen them in years though as I was afraid I could damage the tapes but gladly the series was released on DVD now and I could watch it in a much better quality then I used to. It impressed me a lot when I was a kid, watching it again now brings up some memories and I still have to say that for a mini series from the 80s it is a great one. Many shots made on sea, beautiful ships, solid made model works, good actors, it got all it takes and I still think it's not only for kids. Even without cgi they filmed on many locations that perfectly fit in the looks of the 18th century, clothing, uniforms and tools make the illusion perfect. It's a bit cheesy that most things turn out fine and too many things happen coincidental, the swordfights between the pirates and the crew of the Charming Molly don't look that convincing than they did back when I was a kid (Braveheart and Lord of the Rings set a new standart in hack'n'slash on the screen) but what the heck, it's still awesome and gets the full 10 points from me for nostalgic reason. Go Jack, go!
