In our first episode, we chat about Pirates! An Adventure with Scientists/ A Band of Misfits (depending on where in the world you live) as chosen by Tom of Wooden Overcoats! Tom had never seen it before and chose it to bury a grudge with a former co-worker who said that it was rubbish.
We were also joined by Felix from Wooden overcoats, who had no Idea what a Christmas Ham was.
The Aardman classic Pirates! (Insert your favourite ending here) tells the story of the “Pirate Captain” and his quest to become “Pirate of the Year” even though he gets beaten every year by better Pirates as voiced by Lenny Henry, Salma Hayek and Hugh Grant.
Pirates! is one of the most densely packed films since Airplane!.. and they both have exclamation marks at the end.
The Episode #001 crew rated this highly with a 4.2/ 5 so a pretty high standard to right off the bat here at Flixwatcher. The “Recommendability" scores were super high and Pirates was let down if anything by the “Repeat Viewing Score"
