In a sword fighting/action sequence shot on the beach, Sinbad and Young Timur ('Sean Michael') are battling one another. At one point, Sinbad punches Timur in the face and he falls down. When this was actually filmed, Timur slipped in the sand and Sinbad actually punched him for real. It was an accident but they kept the take because it looked so real. See more »

And I was worried about you, Maeve. You never cease to amaze me.
The feeling is mutual.

The Adventures of Sinbad aired for two seasons. Both were excellent. The first season was unique and family friendly, the second season was less so.
The darker changes came about, partially due to trying to un-Disney-fy it, mostly due to the change of producing companies who wanted something "sexier", more like Xena and Hercules. The problem was fans didn't want another Xena or Hercules type show. Some liked the new changes, others didn't, many of those others left. However, AoS still got hyped (word of mouth) as being a friendly family show, because that's (mostly) what it was first season and that's what people expected it to be during the second season, which it really wasn't, though it did keep most of its audience.
Last thoughts: It was well casted and well acted. The chemistry of the cast on-screen was *great* and their easy nature carried across to the audience. The good guys were good, the bad guys were also good. The special effects only got better as the series went on.
I found the show to be a rare and unique treasure among all the shows out there, but more importantly it was even more so within its own genre.
