The first season was the best season.
22 February 2000 | by (CA, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

Sinbad was obviously canceled due to the low audience on it's second season. After the character of Maeve left, the producers made the show darker, sexier and that lead them to an unevitable cancelation.

I want to remember AoS on it's first season, when Sinbad and his crew were fighting to find Dim Dim and save the world in the meantime, the wonderful chemistry between Zen Gesner and Jacqueline Collen was one of the reasons everybody fell in love with Maeve and Sinbad.

I not even watched Season 2, I was very sad when I knew about Jacqeline Collen's departure, but I said to myself "Hey Sinbad is not going to change because of her lost, in fact he's going to fight harder ro find Dim-Dim and get her back" Unfortuntaley I was wrong and I stopped watching the show at the fourth episode of Season 2, when I realized that they were making a fool of me.Let's face it you can't replace a sweet independent sorceress like Maeve with a juvenile criminal like Bryn (no offence to Bryn fans, I just dont like her)

Ed Nahla admitted himself that Season 1 was the best AoS season ever since he said that they used to be the best viewed new show, but their ratings fell in Season two and after losing one of their sponsors All American TV canceled "Adventures of Sinbad" for good, burning every hope of getting our S1 Sinbad back or maybe the posibility of Maeve's return.

I'll never forget "Adventures of Sinbad" (Season 1) it became into a classic for me, it was my favorite show and I still watch my AoS tapes from time to time.

Still all the Nomads like myself will never forget this wonderful show, cause it might had ended but the Nomad still sails around the web of the Sinbad community.

See you around
