5.0 out of 5 stars Well remembered, and still thrilling, 2 May 2012
This review is from: Robin Of Sherwood: The Complete Collection [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
I remember watching this series when I was attending high school in the early eighties. To me it has always been the ultimate Robin Hood, in fact most other versions whether in the form of a series or a film seem to me always to lack something. Recently I bought the whole set (not this particular one), the first two series as broadcast on the Dutch market (with Dutch subtitles) and the third a British version. And it is still wonderfull! Of course, it may be a bit dated, some of the battle scenes are over the top, especially the duels that quite often aren't really necessary - but fun to watch - and of course the magic is sometimes a bit too obvious. But the lovely, haunting music, the two great leads (and yes I did like both versions of the Hooded man - the yeoman and the nobleman), the wonderful characterisation of the merry men and Marian, and of course Herne the Hunter (great for the overall story line) all contribute to a great tv-experience. And for me the sheriff of Nottingham and Sir Guy of Gisburne from this series will always remain the prototypes for these villains.

I actually remembered quite a lot, even if it is nearly 30 years ago that I saw these episodes originally, especially certain stories. I even rememberend that Guy and Robert were found to be half brothers, and that Marian retreats into a convent at the end of series three. Due to the premature cancellation (due to money problems, not because of low viewing rates) some of the overall story lines won't concluded satisfactorily. Wouldn't it be great if there could be made a sequel in which all those totally finalised storylines (like the half brother issue) could be really concluded? Difficult to do of course, but it certainly would wrap things up!
