It could of been better and run more seasons
24 November 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The show was not the best of all but compare to such fantastic other shows it was a prime. The First Season was much more humouristic and fantastic but the second season was much more darker and mature.

Since some years i have written a few scenarios based on this TV show because the characters were simply excellent. Julianne Morris(Rumina) was the most seductive and nice and tight character.

The characters: Doubar, Firouz, Rongar, and Mustaphah were attractive and taking good. Sinbad was less good that teenagers could like in a hero. In the second season Sinbad was a dirty fresh arrogant guy who beat everyone anywhere.

Some episodes were excellent, in the first season: The 2 first episodes with the"Return of Sinbad" were pretty much well. Every episodes with Rumina were formidable. One of the best of season I or the BEST was the "Rhonin" and another who was pretty good was "Covnemdrum" with Scrath,lord of Darkness. Some reviews could of been done for certain episodes as to make them darker and sinister and admirable.

In season II, the special effects still abominable,the episodes were significant and considerable. The Best of them were: The Gift(surviving Babuk too remarkable), Heart and Soul(vampires), Hell House(original at last)with "the Cursed of the Gorgones" and "Castle Keep" were the best episodes.

However some weaknesses were done so large so big. Special effects were nutty, decorative castles and cities and villages weren't original or watchable (except Baghdad). A note: In season II, Sinbad is a super hero which it shouldn't be one so far. The fight weren't good with him. He's always beating the bad guys so easily except in 4or5 episodes:the Gift(sure he lost), the Gryphon Tale, The Castle Keep and the Heart and Soul. You can watch Sinbad but you better drop in some special episodes.
