5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood has never been so Good! 10 Dec 2012
Format:DVD
I never expected 'much' of this series since a lot of modern takes on medievel history are innaccurate and quite annoying with the humour. My friend raved on about it (and we have very different movie tastes) so I gave in and watched the first episode. To be honest, I thought it was okay and the acion was good but that was it. I persevered though and by the 4/5th episode I was hooked - I couldn't believe it myself.

This series doesn't need to be a historical reflection - its not a docummentary. The depth in the characters and the captivating storyline had me finish the whole season in just 2 days. Not to mention the music, which has to be some of the best music I have heard for that kind of series. There is a good balance of action and reflection in this, which has truly paid off. Marian is just, well, everything you would want a heroine to be. Although Robin isn't everyones cup of tea, he's very real to life and fits in his role perfectly. He's actually how I would imagine Robin to be like - heroes don't always need to look like your typical expected, stand out figure with all the traits you would expect. Robin has his faults but his good personality shine through.

The suspense and fight scenes just get better and better in my opinion!

I know there are some bad reviews from people who may not have found it their taste but if your thinking the same, GIVE IT A TRY because you might just end up getting a great surprise.

It just gets better in season 2!!!

corny, PC, cliched and as atmospheric as a wet Wednesday in Budleigh Salterton. my eleven year old son could pen a more powerful period piece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good in the Hood 9 Nov 2007
By Mona
Format:DVD
The delay in this dvd box set being released in the UK has already been covered in previous reviews; however, I am extremely pleased that this item has become available. The other 'volumes' of Robin Hood had nothing in the way of features at all.

I thoroughly enjoyed the first series of Robin Hood when it was shown on the BBC, but refrained from being any dvds until a box set came out (reason being that I love special features!) The packaging is nice, and the episodes are spread over 4 disks, the fifth being for special features, however there are small extras on the other disks as well, e.g. character profiles on all the main cast (excluding Joe Armstrong a.k.a. Allan A Dale, who doesn't do interviews), as well as commentaries on four episodes: Episode 2: Sheriff Got Your Tongue?, Episode 4: Parent Hood, Episode 8: Tattoo? What Tattoo? and Episode 13: A Clue: No.

The commentaries are highly amusing, and the cast & crew add some interesting and humorous insights to the filming of certain scenes. For example, did you know that Guy of Gisborne's (Richard Armitage) tattoo in the series was originally red instead of black?

There is also a 'Hood Academy' featurette, which shows the training the cast had to do in preparation for filming as well as the thoughts behind the costumes (which I found quite interesting- especially the reasons behind Allan A Dale's costume) as well a 'Designing the Hood' feature, and a 'Making Of', which has some highly amusing clips of Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood) and Harry Lloyd (Will Scarlett) speaking some quite random Hungarian.

Overall, I am extremely pleased with these DVDs. The series can be light and fun, but there are also undercurrents of sinister evil, which is quite apparent; especially in the later episodes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forget about the green tights 18 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
I agree that there is much wrong with the BBC's latest re-imagining of Robin Hood - IF all you are worried about is historical accuracy. However, for those that simply expect Saturday teatime family drama to entertain and bring families together, it's pretty darn good. That said, some of the actors are a bit poor - notably the strangely wooden Harry Lloyd as Will Scarlet, and the rather irritating Marian, but these weaknesses are compensated for by plenty of action, lashings of gallows humour, and some sumptuous (okay, ignore the fact that this was filmed in Hungary) English greenwood settings.
Put your brain in neutral, and simply enjoy a slice of highly entertaining BBC action/adventure - you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars No good 27 May 2014

Starts off all right. But as soon as you see arrows embedding in quick succession between a thug's fingers... you realise that this TV show is absolute cheese, and no class.

As someone who adored Xena back in the day, I enjoyed Robin Hood in sort of the same way. Sure, it's an anachronism stew and some plot points are a bit wonky, but it tries to be mostly entertaining. The addition of ladies to the boys club isn't new, but I love Djaq so much. This show was also responsible for introducing me to Richard Armitage--never has Guy of Gisborne been so conflicted. (Or looked so good in black leather. Ahem.) Guy's obviously not a very good person at all, but he's not a one-dimensional villain at least. The Sheriff, on the other hand, seems to be doing it for the lulz and Keith Allen basically chomps on the scenery with glee.

Some continuity issues are rather obvious--like Guy's tattoo, the scar of which never shows up again--and the writers seem to make Guy incompetent or competent depending on the demands of each episode, so plot and writing may not be a strong point. They were trying to make some interesting points about soldiers coming back from fighting wars that draw some parallels with current events, but there was not much follow through on that. Some great performances in here and Jonas Armstrong brings in a kind of boyish charm to the legendary outlaw.

Cast commentaries are hilarious~ The added documentaries are a welcome addition too.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only for Richard Armitage!
Having seen Richard Armitage in The Hobbit films, and Spooks I decided to give this a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars A slightly modern but action-packed retelling of a classic tale.
I loved it when I saw it on TV and these episodes will never die old for me! There is humor behind some dark plots with a few cheesy lines. Overall a fun and not heavy on show.
