SInbad's first, second and third episodes actually managed to affirm three aspects that will make me a long term viewer of this series:
1> It's magic and monsters and fun! What else could it be?
2> The actors have got a 'thing' going and they have quickly 'found' their characters.
3> There's a nice wink to the Ray Harryhausen films in the episodes with an honest appreciation for the Arabian Nights mythos.
I can see this getting better with time... ;)
