‘BLACK’ HAT

There is no pirate as notorious as Blackbeard. Born Edward Teach, Blackbeard was captain of the heavily armed Queen Anne’s Revenge – formerly a French merchant ship he captured. Played by Ray Stevenson on Black Sails, Blackbeard was a mentor to Captain Vane (the son he never had, despite trying with nine wives) and a fierce fighter and brilliant tactician who will undoubtedly play a vital role in pirate rebellion in the fourth and final season of Black Sails. VIP Fan Auctions is offering fans of the series an amazing opportunity to own Blackbeard’s hat (pictured above) – a one-of-a-kind three-corner leather hat custom-made for Black Sails. Don’t let this opportunity to plunder Blackbeard’s wardrobe – click here for photos and more information, and place your bid today.

Missing ‘Game of Thrones’? Check out ‘Rome’

RomeCast

Many hardcore Game of Thrones fans go through the depressing fact that their show won’t show a new episode till spring of next year. So fans need a frontrunner till then, but they don’t have to look far to watch Rome, which aired on HBO from 2005 to 2007. Rome chronicles power historic characters such as Julius Caesar, Mark Anthony, Cleopatra and Gaius Octavian.

They both feature a ridiculously talented cast, incredible sets and cinematography, and detailed narrative. Rome is so far from modern times that it almost feels fantasy just like Game of Thrones. There are great supporting cast members, who are more interesting than the main characters. For instance, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo (Kevin McKidd and Ray Stevenson), two Roman Soldiers, who’s rise and fall in the ranks of the Roman aristocracy comprises a interesting part of the series. With the high scale battles, traumatic assassinations and historic seductions, Rome is a perfect fix to your Game of Thrones wait.
