Quote from: bobloblaw on January 05, 2023, 10:07:29 AMUS reviews suggest that it picks up after a couple of duff opening eps - can anyone attest to this?

Quote from: dead-ced-dead on January 05, 2023, 11:20:21 AMI feel like this is a common thing with US TV, that the first few episodes are like the first pancake. I mean, look at Parks and Rec.I haven't seen this but American critics seem to enjoy it and it has a dedicated fanbase.
Quote from: boinks on January 05, 2023, 06:34:28 PMI enjoyed it as it went on but it felt a bit fanfiction-y at times and I was a bit disappointed by how two-dimensional some of the supporting cast's (e.g. Guz Khan, Joel Fry) characters were - I guess they're hoping for more seasons so maybe they'll get some development eventually. The diversity of the whole thing and the relaxed acceptance of sexual orientations/pronouns is nice. But yeah, it wasn't a laugh-out-loud affair for me.
Quote from: atavist on January 05, 2023, 06:38:17 PMDiversity on pirate ships is historical fact, and given they were at sea for months on end, there was probably loads of bumfun going on.
Quote from: Replies From View on January 05, 2023, 12:28:32 PMReally good idea to start a series off with two duff episodes
Quote from: Replies From View on January 06, 2023, 07:58:23 AMNot sure Mrs. Brown's Boys is a good example to pick when talking about a show not being irreparably shite.
Quote from: Better Midlands on January 05, 2023, 05:37:35 PMThat rings a bell, although I could be thinking of Geena Davis in Cutthroat Island.This could be Sinbad/Shazaam all over again.
Quote from: Hank_Kingsley on January 06, 2023, 09:35:05 AMIt's so frustrating, nothing close to it on Josie Lawrence's IMDB or anywhere online so I guess it must just be that she sort of dressed like a pirate throughout the 80s/90s and that she became the lead in my mind. I can vaguely remember that it was about a lady pirate and her inept crew. I think she may have had a romance with a royal navy guy? It was sort of stagey looking but I remember it being quite good. Definitely not Captain Butler now that I've watched an episode on YouTube.Channel 4 wouldn't have done 2 pirate sitcoms in a decade though, and one wouldn't have vanished with seemingly no record.It's not Cutthroat Island, I remember watching that on video when it came out (used to be well into pirates, especially Lego pirates).What the fuck did I watch?
Quote from: Hank_Kingsley on January 05, 2023, 03:38:55 PMRemember Pirates with Josie Lawrence? Loved that show. I'm not watching this because I've been burned by What We Do in the Shadows. Also, it gives me strong 'nice' vibes that rub me the wrong way (not that I dislike nice, I love Joe Pera, but you know what I mean, young idiots watching it because it's 'wholesome' or some such shit).Edit: no such show seems to have existed. It appears I fever-dreamed Josie Lawrence dressed up as a sexy lady pirate. Could it have been Captain Butler with Craigh Charles? Edit 2: This is really fucking me up. I distinctly remember a show at about 6pm on Channel 4, at some point pre-1998. There were pirates. It wasn't called Pirates, about pirates who move to live on land, it was a bright, colourful show, that was sort of aimed at kids.
