The best re-telling of the Robin Hood legend ever,
By A Customer
This review is from: Robin Of Sherwood: Series 1 - Episodes 1-3 [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
I first saw this as a kid on TV in the early 80's and it definitely stands the test of time. The outlaws are all young and ragged as they would have been (not a pair of lincoln green tights in sight!) and their characters avoid many of the cliches found in other adaptions and are believable. The locations are also beautiful and realistic (lots of mud!). The adding of magic and a forest god sets it apart from all the other versions but it still has loads of action and romance.
