A true adaptation of the Robin Hood legend,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Robin of Sherwood: The Complete Series (Repackaged version 2) [DVD] (DVD)
Of all the adaptations of Robin Hood that I've seen so far (some I haven't seen yet), the HTV-produced Robin of Sherwood from the 1980s is in my opinion the best of the lot. This adaptation is true to the Robin Hood legend with great storylines and the actors who played their characters were a true fit to them, compared to the actors in the BBC's adaptations with Jonas Armstrong which were a bit on the cheesy side.
Back to Robin of Sherwood, the first two series with Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley/Sherwood were great because it actually had the main character in the show, whereas in series 3 Jason Connery (son of Sir Sean Connery) was brought in to the show as Robert of Huntingdon who later became the second Robin Hood because Michael Praed left the show after two series. The third (and final) series was good enough to watch, although if I have to be accurate, I would say that it perhaps wasn't quite a patch on the first two. But still, I would highly recommend this series to anyone who is a fan of the Robin Hood legend.
