The real-life pirates of the Caribbean violently plunder the world’s riches and form a surprisingly egalitarian republic in this documentary series. The Lost Pirate Kingdom is docu-series from Netflix that is billed as the true story of the “real” pirates of the Caribbean, but the recently-released trailer has a remarkable number of cheesy re-enactment scenes that look like they’re out of a bad History Channel drama.
Actually, that description doesn’t do justice to the History Channel’s acclaimed scripted dramas like Vikings — the scenes from The Lost Pirate Kingdom contains re-enactments that wish they were as good as a History Channel drama.
