    Funnily enough, I watched a lot of tv shows during lockdowns when my attention/concentration span was at its absolute lowest and now that I'm spending much less time on social media and recovering said attention span, the less I am ready to put up with needlessly stretched out stories.

    Anchor- Part 4

    Silver finds ways of passing the time while Flint is working; but hanging out in the bathtub isn’t quite the same as the sea.

    Unfortunately Silver, this has everything to do with you.

    Don't mind me just thinking about how when Randall lost his leg he wasn't allowed on the ship. But how Silver instead was given a place in the Captain's cabin when he suffered the same fate. And was that because people needed Silver more? Or was it because Silver started the precedent of having people with one leg on board by offering to look after Randal.

    Thinking about how Flint and Hennessey’s post-brawl conversation in the pub in 2x02 is the first clear indication of Flint being queer, and how that dialogue foreshadows how queerness is relevant in the show overall: Hennessey says

    ‘My concern with you is over that which cannot be known. That thing that arises in you when passions are aroused [...]. All men have it, but yours is different. Darker, wilder.’

    which is on the surface about his bad temper but has such an obvious queer undertone that I still do not understand how people are surprised by the ‘reveal’ in 2x05. (Like, there is absolutely no reason to have the word ‘passion’ in there unless you’re going for a subtet about sexuality.) And it’s such an interesting line because here we have on a small scale what’s happening overall with this theme for the rest of the show: Hennessey, representative of civilisation, equating queerness with monstrosity (Flint’s bad temper). And the way he does this is by tying both queerness and monstrosity to otherness, ’but yours is different’ being the key line here. His temper? sexuality? (both! that’s the point!) being different is what makes him dangerous in Hennessey’s/ civilisation’s eyes. Note also how he explicitly calls Flint’s temper (and subtextually, his queerness) ‘darker’. That theme sounds familiar, doesn’t it? So with that one line of Hennessey’s the show essentially tells us ‘civilisation turns queer people into monsters by othering them’. (Which, of course, gets more clear later on, but here we have it, literally spelled out for us, in one line of dialogue.)

    #and that’s before we get into how his outburst of violence in the pub brawl is kind of justified #given that he was responding to blatant classism #like. I wouldn’t necesarrily defend that (or his actions as a pirate of course) irl but his anger is always righteous #black sails#james flint#admiral hennessey #black sails meta

    Burning England's homophobic rule to the ground was Captain Flint's Oath of Fëanor, and following through on it would've destroyed everything he loved despite his righteous anger and good intentions, and I love that Silver found a way to convince him to break it

    either that or Thomas is a Silmaril, a precious jewel of light and beauty

    Unpopular opinion:

    I don’t buy Silver in the later seasons, and I think it’s due to casting. Objectively, I can see that he is a complexly written, grey-morality, vulnerable character of the type I should love. But I kinda feel like Luke Arnold just doesn’t pull off this dark, conflicted, manipulator in later seasons. And I think it’s because, for me, the part was cast too young.

    I like him best in the early seasons, when Silver is mostly an idiot, because it seems to fit better with the young actor. Once silver goes dark, and takes on the mantle of Long John, I just don’t buy him anymore. I’m watching it and it’s like “this guy? Really? This is who the crew loves and fears and needs to please?” I mean, I’d get it if the crew chose to love and fear Flint because, honestly? Same. But Luke Arnold’s Silver? Nah.

    I also feel like the chemistry between Silver and Flint could have been better. If silver had been cast as someone closer to Flint/Toby Stephen’s age, I think I would buy much more into the intensity of their scenes, and the mutual respect they’re supposed to eventually have. As is, Flint is such an intimidating presence that Silver just seems like an upstart kid in contrast. When Silver has dialogue with him on the nature of darkness, I’m just “get over yourself kid”. The gravitas ain’t there for me. The same lines from an older actor though, I think I would appreciate.

    If the dynamic were more mentor-mentee (like the Elenor and Flint relationship, where I do buy the mutual respect) perhaps a I’d see it more. But when it comes to equals, I want to see Flint go toe to toe with someone like Miranda or Gates or Rogers or Blackbeard. Someone I would take seriously. This Silver, to me, just doesn’t measure up in presence.

    Luke Arnold seems like a great guy from what interviews I’ve listened too and I think he turns in a very good performance. I just felt the role was cast too young (dude wasn’t even 30 yet in season 1!)

    #black sails#John silver #long John silver #obviously this is just my take and you can agree to disagree #It’s really not that an age gap exists it’s that silver is too young to be taken seriously #I’m just an old lady who wants to watch old men #I should mention that Hannibal works for me #but Will was older than Silver so that’s why #unpopular opinion

    I absolutely hate this fucking show man I spent the entirety of my Season 1 and 2 rewatch being like “oh boy I can’t wait to get to when the heat really turns up and the writing pops off” and now I am there, standing on a precipice of pain that I wished for myself! And all I can think is “no I don’t want to continue into the Pain, I just want to go back to when life was good in Season 1” but when I do that I’ll just start the Whole. Damn. Cycle. Over. Again.
