Sit back, relax and prepare yourself for a cruise like you would have never imagine.
Revenge...the gayest thing to sail the High Seas...in centuries!
Pour a gill of 'Carry On', add a splash of Mel Brookes, garnish with a twist of Monty Python...served up by the gentry and the gentrified...who just happen to be gay pirates!
So...if you like your humour to be bawdy, brash and bamboozling...this is be show for you! Me hearties!
Rhys Darby and Taika Waititi just bounce off of each other like an Olympic ping-pong balls...their charms and vulnerabilities are placed on their sleeves...without a shadow of remorse or guilt.
This is a love story...supported by a madcap crew, a great soundtrack and laughs, guffaws and tears galore. It does...it has pathos!
PS...there is to be a 2nd series!
"Getting Their Ship Together"
Based on the true adventures of 18th century would-be pirate, Stede Bonnet (Rhys Darby). After trading in the seemingly charmed life of a gentleman for one of a swashbuckling buccaneer, Stede becomes captain of the pirate ship Revenge. Struggling to earn the respect of his potentially mutinous crew, Stede's fortunes change after a fateful run-in with the infamous Captain Blackbeard. Stede and crew attempt to get their ship together and survive life on the high seas.
