Starz will be replaying the first three episodes of pirate drama Black Sails beginning Friday, February 14th at 9:00. Executive produced by Michael Bay, the series follows fearsome Captain Flint as he fights to keep his position as head of a restless crew and John Silver as he tries to sink into the crowd following a questionable incident on another ship. The pirates will also have to defend New Providence Island, the last remaining place they can go about their business without fear of law, from being taken over by the English, a fate that could leave many of them without a home or a place to conduct their business. Thus far, the series has been a ratings winner for Starz, holding nearly all of its audience from week one into week two, and earned itself a second season renewal at 2013 San Diego Comic-Con.
Listed below are the times, titles, and descriptions of the first three episodes of Black Sails.
9:00 p.m. – “I.”

10:00 p.m. – “II.”
Flint deals with a thief among his crew; Vane voices an objection to Rackham chasing a score; Silver and Max hide in a brothel; and Eleanor is faced with a difficult decision.

A partner is sought to assist in the hunt for the Urca d’Lima; Silver comes up with a solution to Billy’s morale issues; a suddenly reasonable Vane makes an impression on Eleanor; and Gates is promoted.
