Mark Ryan, Toby Stephens

[WARNING: The following story contains major spoilers from the Season 1 finale of Black Sails. Read at your own risk.]

"There are no legacies in this life. No monuments, no histories. Just the water. It pays us and then it claims us. Swallows us whole as if we've never been here at all."

If Black Sails hadn't already proven the words above to be true, the Starz pirate drama's Season 1 finale certainly bought into that bleak worldview wholeheartedly.

Black Sails

It's quite a week for those who enjoy rugged armchair escapism of the historical epic variety. First came the three nights of Discovery's enjoyable gold-rush melodrama Klondike (repeated in its entirety on Saturday, starting at 9:30 am/8:30c), during which Jack London (played by Johnny Simmons) is heard rhapsodizing, "What you're looking at here is a walking, talking novel," as he surveys the squalor and violent desperation teeming throughout Dawson City, the miniseries' Yukon frontier setting.

This week, new Saturday Night Live cast member Sasheer Zamata took Girls fans on a tour of Brooklyn, and on the series itself, Marnie (Allison Williams) discovered a cringe-worthy — yet hilarious — video of herself on YouTube.
