Editorial Reviews

Sinbad is a young man on a quest for redemption, condemned to keep searching for a way to lift the curse that chains him to the seas, until he can find the goodness in himself. Sinbad provides for himself and his family by fighting for money, but inadvertently kills a man, causing him to escape to sea as a stowaway. The 8th century Arabia is a melting pot of cultures, faiths and creatures; full of life and color, but also threatening and volatile. Before their journey is over, Sinbad and his crew of outcasts will not only have to brave their own demons, but some of the most dangerous enemies imaginable.

I approached this new British interpretation of the Sinbad legend with a fair amount of trepidation. I had heard the show described to both extremes, both as brilliant and as horrendous. So in truth, I probably didn't expect very much from the viewing. I thought I'd try an episode, but then bow out if it was too cheesy or silly. Instead, however, I've been pleasantly surprised. As is the way with most TV programs (even the best shows have their haters and the worst shows have their supporters), "Sinbad" is neither absolutely terrific or totally abysmal. Although far from perfect, it is a program with a great deal of potential. Somewhat uneven in tone from episode to episode, the narrative has a solid premise and the effects are better than you might anticipate. Perhaps closest in feel to this "Sinbad" is the recent anachronistic updating of "Robin Hood" from the BBC. Part comedy, part adventure, the individual episodes can range from gripping to amusing to slightly painful. But despite an inconsistency, I have found this investment worth the effort. Not only is "Sinbad" much better than I expected, I actually quite enjoy it! This adventure series might not be designed to capture awards, but it is serviceable and fun entertainment.

The adventure kicks off with a little bit of back story. The premiere introduces the major players and describes how Sinbad sets course on his life at sea. Sinbad (Elliott Knight) gets mixed up in the death of a noble's son. Looking for retribution, Lord Akbari (Naveen Andrews of Lost) strikes at Sinbad's family resulting in great tragedy. Sinbad's grandmother (Oscar nominee Janet Suzman), in an effort to remove Sinbad from harm's way, curses him to an existence in exile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait June 16, 2013
By nsewus
Verified Purchase
I came across this series while visiting Montreal last year on Canada's version of the Syfy channel (goes by another name but similar content).
It is an exciting, beautifully filmed production with a talented multi-ethnic cast of both older and newer faces. If you watch British TV productions you'll recognize the more established actors like the ever charismatic Orla Brady from "Mistresses", and be delighted by handsome Elliot Knight in the title role and gorgeous Estellla Daniels as Nala.
It's a very contemporary re-visioning with the same charms of the classic Sinbad movies- exotic locales, mystery, magic and monsters. The costumes are quite beautiful as well. It's all around a visual and entertaining treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly entertaining August 13, 2013
By A. Kern
Format:DVD
I loved watching this series with my family and will buy the DVD. Elliott Knight was dashing and epitomized the essence if a young adventurer who learned from his experiences, a valued coming of age story. The other characters were well drawn and interesting, often beautiful or appropriately horrendous, including the excellent special effects. I will look for these actors again in other productions since the series has come to an end.

4.0 out of 5 stars If only it were funnier..... July 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If they had had a comedy writer on staff, this show would have been Firefly for a new generation. The cast is attractive and the characters appealing. The scenery is sumptuous and the costumes visually exciting. The scripts were fun, if not funny. A little more humorous would have guaranteed the box set of this show a place of honor on the shed next to the sixteen copies of Firefly.

I absolutely loved this series, it's just a shame they cancelled it after the first season.

And why the heck is Anwar (Dimitri Leonidas) not on the cover?
