Truth be told, I didn't watch the series. I followed the often hilarious and sometimes deadly honest recaps at (fab fashion site btw). Naturally, I had a little curiosity about how they would conclude a show that basically was about nothing, except Lohan's total dedication to self-sabotage.

Some that come to mind are: - Cutthrost Island with Geena Davis and Matthew Modine - It had an interesting plot, lots of action, some romance, basically everything that a pirate movie should have. I thought Davis did a great job as a female pirate, who didn't mind getting dirty and fighting with men.
