On the run from his home town of Basra after the death of his brother, the reckless but charming Sinbad finds himself cast out to sea, cursed to never spend more than a day and night on land. On board The Providence, stowaway Sinbad teams up with an intriguing band of travellers, including aloof Norwegian sailor Gunnar, lithe and agile jewel-thief Rina, haughty and aristocratic Nala, the eccentric odd-ball Cook and the ship’s cerebral doctor, Anwar.
A terrible storm ensues and both Sinbad and his fellow ship-mates find themselves thrown together on a spellbinding voyage of discovery. Encountering magic, menace, mystery and monsters - Sinbad embarks on an epic and emotional quest to rid himself of the curse and to embrace his destiny…
Starring Elliot Knight, Naveen Andrews, Orla Brady, Elliot Cowan, Marama Corlett, Estella Daniels, Junix Inocian, Dimitri Leonidas, Janet Suzman, Tuppence Middleton.

12 episodes, an initial disaster whittling those on board Providence to a few colourful characters. From then on - storms, magic, monsters, dastardly villains and formidable challenges.
Visually the series is glorious. Admittedly much else could be improved with storylines stronger, scripts more worthy (minus those banal exchanges), more convincing acting from some of the cast. Episode 12 may divide opinion - this venturing into far darker territory, all very psychological and none too easy to follow.
All that said, there is much to enjoy here - lively adventures, surprising guest names featured. Overall, a guilty pleasure - just in need of adjustments to propel it into a higher league.
(Three bonus features, including an interesting tour of Malta - the island ideal setting for most of the location shots.)
In this series we have a number of weakly plotted storylines that could take place anywhere or anytime. Even the dialogue is 21st century. If I had heard Sinbad say "ok, let's do this thing" one more time I swear I would have screamed.
The series is colourful but the characters are weak, the acting poor and the whole production doesn't rise above the level for an audience of ten year olds
To me it was a big disappointment. More than once I found myself longing to hit the "fast forward" and being let out of that misery.
I bought a DVD evocating high adventure and found myself watching:
- a pyjamas clad salt monster
- an order of warrior monks dressed like the crew of spaceship Enterprise
- a gambler dressed like a Las Vegas showman
- a monstrous serpent intent to world distruction stopped because she was allergic to nuts.
Add to these a cast who never ever seemed right for the part and you get a DVD you long never to have bought.
Not everything was an utter failure. Some of the places and landscapes are very good and the roc appearing in the second episode is very well made monster, but even this is ruined by the poor script, instead of it being an awe inspiring creature ranging the skies, it is a prisoner of some second rate pirates. But it is too little to get a rating of more than a star.
