Did You Know?


Filming of the Estrella Polar was done aboard the Cervantes Saavedra. It was launched as a lightvessel named Sydostbrotten (Nr 33) 1934 from the Swedish shipyard Götaverken, in Gothenburg. In 1970, the ship was sold and refitted at the Aveiro shipyard in Portugal. The refit converted the vessel into an iron-hulled barquentine with three masts and a bowsprit. See more »

Should have kept it to two seasons
20 May 2018 | by texasboyySee all my reviews

Loved the first season, even with its over abundance of telenovela melodrama, but the series started to falter halfway through the second season. Most of the characters and writing weren't interesting enough to maintain interest across several episodes. They started getting redundant, some subplots about relationships carried on way too long, and the day-to-day issues they had to face were just monotonous. Walking Dead has the exact same issues, yet for some reason that clunker is still on the air.

The Boat should have focused more on the science fiction aspect of it and wrapped it all up by end of season two (same with Walking Dead BTW). I stuck with it through season three but it was obvious the writers had run out of ideas. The cheap cliffhanger they threw in during the last episode was just weak too.

If you want to see this, just watch season one and skip the rest. First season also has some interesting scenes with female nudity which vanished in later seasons.
