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 »
Yeah, I admit it; when this series aired I used to catch it on my lunch break every so often. It's really a kids adventure show, and not meant to be anything more than that. Shot in, I believe, South Africa, the show had a kind of campy appeal to it. Every time Sinbad and crew arrived at a "new" village, it was actually the same old village they'd built for the show, only shot at a different angle.
As usual Sinbads "Arab" origins are veiled by Anglo actors due to demographics... oh well. Myself, I think the show would've done just as well with a culturally authentic cast. It is after all a show for kids, and kids are pretty forgiving when it comes to perceptions. But that's neither here nor there.
The CGI and other effects were what they were, and the plots were pretty basic. The acting, for what the show was, was passable. I found it to be good mindless fun as I chowed down a salad in front of the tube.
If it ever comes to DVD, and by that I mean a good quality transfer and not some knockoff, then I'll buy a copy.
