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.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on July 3, 2013
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.

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!

This was a really good series, too bad they didn't continue it, there were still lots of stories that could have been told. The cast worked together and complimented each other and the story lines were fresh and new. I enjoyed it very much and hated to see it end. I will enjoy watching the series again and again.

This was a new twist on an old, old story! All of the actors were new to me as well. The why and where Sinbad began his adventuresome life is presented by a very imaginative writer. I enjoyed each and every episode and the way it ends makes this feel like a true "prequel" to the rest of the Sinbad stories. Good job! Oh! It is called Season 1 and 2, but is only packaged as Season 1, so what is up with that I do not know.

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.

Why does modern stupidity always have to play a part in today's writing .
The true makings of a good show is the genuine plot,.. This show has steadily progressed into a full swing 2 point something show, what a disappointment.
Then after it steadily decreases in excitement, and it really couldn't get any worse,..they introduce Bird face .
I thought we had laughed Lee "The Bird Face " Ingleby out of the business with George Gently.
He is the worst actor to ever try to emerge from the UK. That was it,.. I considered it a waste of money and shut it down 1/3 of the way through the 8th ep.
So damn sad,..
Acting has become like music did in the 90s,.. all you need is an uncle in the biz, or a bit of money , and you are in, No talent required.
It is truly sad what Television has become.
If there were more shows like "Game of Thrones", "Downton Abbey","Walking Dead", "Justified", and "Intelligence" maybe TV would still be worth watching,..
However, you would have to get rid of 3/4 of the actors in the business to achieve that. There are just not enough 4 and 5 star shows to go around,..
And as long as you cheesy lovers keep writing good reviews for programs such as this one, it will never change.
I plead to the great writers out there somewhere , we beg you, please don't retire,..... help us!, .....before it's too late.

I watched all the episodes and couldn't make it work for me. I think this is a personal choice and not due to the quality of the show. Its very decent quality - so try it! It seems to work for a lot of people.
