In August 2010, the SKY1 director of programs, Stuart Murphy, announced the commission of several new television series, including a 12-part multimillion-pound "Sinbad the Sailor." Impossible Pictures, a production company known for producing the ITV science fiction series "Primeval," was secured to produce the show. Murphy announced the series after wanting to shed Sky's reputation for broadcasting primarily foreign imports and "shifting the budget" to put "terrestrial levels of spend" behind the shows. The remake was also intended to have "the ambition of American television series 'Lost'" and the pace of '24.' See more »
I sat down with my wife to watch this show not really knowing what to expect and immediately thought this could be good. The character build up was excellent leaving you knowing there was a bigger plot in amongst the smaller ongoing adventures.
At first I thought the cast was a bit weak but once they developed you liked each and every one of them, along with the excellent plots the show takes you along on a riveting adventure.
The CGI on the show throughout is of a top notch production and one wonders how they afforded it, all I can say is if you manage to come across this gem, sit down and let yourself be taken into a distant magical land, and enjoy. Oh and don't look to hard for the flaws or you will just ruin it for yourself like it seems previous reviewers have.
