It's no surprise Sky 1 didn't go for a second season. I have yet to come across one honest good review (not the ones publicists are paid to post). The acting was awful, very staged and cartoon-like. There's not much of a story either. Basically Sinbad must stay at sea in order to not get strangled to death by a collar he wears due to some curse. Still if there was a better cast in place it could be an enjoyable series. Look at Lord of the Rings for example, not much of a story there either, but because the acting is good it's engaging.
Perhaps this series was targeted for a much younger audience, but even my 6 year old lost interest after the second episode. It's a real shame, I was looking forward to seeing this television series, particularly because it was shot entirely in Malta.
