A thrilling, modern, magical reinvention of the famous legend from the Arabian Nights, starring Elliot Knight, Naveen Andrews, Orla Brady, Sophie Okonedo, Timothy Spall and Dougray Scott. On the run from his home town of Basra and under a curse from his grandmother for a killing that led to the death of his much-loved brother, the streetwise Sinbad finds himself cast out to sea. On board The Providence an intriguing band of travellers is thrown together, including taciturn Norwegian sailor Gunnar, the lithe and agile jewel-thief Rina, and haughty and aristocratic Nala. Completing the ship’s complement is the Cook, an odd-ball and eccentric character and the ship’s cerebral doctor Anwar. Surviving a violent storm, both Sinbad and his fellow ship-mates are forced to band together to face their inner demons, hopes, loves and fears. Our flawed hero embarks on an epic and emotional quest to rid himself of the curse and to embrace his destiny…

I REALY LIKED IT . Very fast paced and exiting .Good fight scenes but not enough sexy girls.
Great series, Skipped two episodes
This might be rectified any moment soon, but episodes 5 and 6 are missing.
Sinbad is one of those series that comes along occasionally which reminds you why we have a TV in out lounge. A complete breath of fresh air, and a refreshing change.
