The Robin Hood box set arrived from the U.S in 12 days, which was quicker than I was expecting. The product was sealed & no damage was sustained en route.
Considering this TV series is over 50 years old, the episodes stand the test of time very well & are exciting & entertaining to watch. It's also fun looking out for a host of well-known actors in what must have been very early roles for them. In Series Three, for example, Paul Eddington seems to turn up in nearly every episode, playing a different character every time!
A word of advice for those buying this box set, who haven't seen the series before: the prints used for Series One are very poor quality and not really good enough to release on DVD. Series Two to Four are much more consistent and better in quality, some incredibly good for their age. It might be an idea to start watching from Series Two to the end of the collection and watch Series One last. By then you'll have enjoyed the show so much that you'll forgive the poor visual quality of Series One!
Apart from this aspect, this collection represents such good value for money that you shouldn't let that stop you from buying this release. Overall, a very enjoyable series, even though I'm too young to remember it from the original broadcast!
