Re: Sinbad on Syfy

^I didn't get the sense that she was embodying the will of any deity. She was just the queen.

I mean, Sinbad is a character from Islamic culture, so if this show were to depict a polytheistic cosmos, that would be a huge, huge departure from the source, and one that would probably be offensive to the cultures who esteem Sinbad as their folk hero.
