Trailer Tuesday: Crossbones

Welcome to “Trailer Tuesday” where I talk about trailers for upcoming movies.

I don’t normally do TV trailers on here, mostly because despite watching lots (too much) of TV, I’m just not into it the way I am with movies.  There are exceptions, of course, but generally speaking movies are where my heart lies.  Having said that, I can’t ignore a new show about pirates, given my obsession with all things pirate-related.  So here’s the trailer for NBC’s upcoming summer TV series, Crossbones, and read on for my thoughts:

More soon

Just to show you I’m still here… there will be more posts soon, I promise.

When I was just a lad looking for my true vocation
My father said now son, this choice deserves deliberation
Though you could be a doctor or perhaps a financier
My boy why not consider a more challenging career

Hey ho ho
You’ll cruise to foreign shores
And you’ll keep your mind and body sound
By working out of doors
True friendship and adventure are what we can’t live without
And when you’re a professional pirate
That’s what the job’s about

Now take Sir Francis Drake, the Spanish all despise him
But to the British he’s a hero and they idolize him
It’s how you look at buccaneers that makes them bad or good
And I see us as members of a noble brotherhood

Hey ho ho
We’re honorable men
And before we lose our tempers we will always count to ten
On occasion there may be someone you have to execute
But when you’re a professional pirate
You don’t have to wear a suit

Some say that pirates steal and should be feared and hated
I say we’re victims of bad press it’s all exaggerated
We’d never stab you in the back, we’d never lie or cheat
We’re just about the nicest guys you’d ever want to meet

Hey ho ho
It’s one for all for one
And we’ll share and share alike with you and love you like a song
We’re gentlemen of fortune and that’s what we’re proud to be
And when you’re a professional pirate

You’ll be honest, brave and free
The soul of decency
You’ll be loyal and fair and on the square
And most importantly

When you’re a professional pirate
You’re always in the best of company
