Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Black Sails heads into choppy territory in terms of sexual content and language -- and it's pretty violent, too. That means you'll see full frontal female nudity, simulated multipartner sex, and characters involved in bisexual relationships. You'll also hear strong, unbleeped language (including crude terms like "c--t" and "p---y") and see bloody swordfights and explosive sea battles, along with characters who drink alcohol and use drugs like opium.

Sexual Content

Nudity includes bare breasts, which are often gratuitous, and full frontal nudity. There's simulated sex, too -- including orgies -- among both hetero- and bisexual couples.

Violence

Violent content includes sea battles, sword fights, savage beatings, and explosions, with bloody injuries and torture.

Language

Strong, unbleeped language includes "f--k," "s--t," and "c--t," along with coarse phrases like, "My p---y gets wet."

Social Behavior

Though the crew has egalitarian aims, the mood is hardly peaceful. Power, greed, and duplicity are common themes.

Consumerism

Not applicable.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Drinking and recreational drug use (opium, etc.).
