Re: Is Primeval New World worth watching?
I'm surprised that both these shows failed to find viewers. Okay, P:NW took a few weeks to get really interesting, but I was fascinated by Sinbad from the start. It took a while to flesh out its supporting cast, but there were compelling elements from the start, including the gorgeous Maltese filming locations that gave it a look unlike any other show.
I lost track of P:NW after the first episode, but I've been watching Sinbad from the start, and I've been really enjoying it. It's the first fantasy show like this that I've come across that goes for this kind of a more middle eastern flavor. Maybe that was what scared people off? I thought it had interesting characters, a unique setting, and some cool stories. I'm very curious where the last few episodes take things
