Good series, awful production,
By A Customer
This review is from: Robin of Sherwood: Complete Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
I agree with all the others saying that this is a great series, and I am looking forward to the others coming out.
But what did they do in the transfer? Absolutely nothing (say it again!).
Colours are washed out (the documentary has restored and cleaned footage, you can see what CAN be done...), there are hairs, pits and scrathces on the system.
Given that DVD is cheaper to make, cheaper to transport and cheaper to sell, WHY is the DVD, which as far as I can tell is a direct transcript, MORE expensive than the VHS?
I'll give 5/5 for the content, 1/5 for effort.
Looking eagerly toward the next series, but I'll return it if the quality is this poor, and wait until it's on budget release.
My advice - wait until the price is reduced. It's not worth anything more than the VHS.
