3.0 out of 5 stars Low-budget '80s TV series, 27 Aug 2007

This review is from: Robin of Sherwood: Complete Series 1 [DVD] [1984] (DVD)
I guess you have to have seen this in the '80s. I didn't, and I can't quite relate to these rave reviews. I didn't really mind the low-budget nature of the series, with dry ice to create a mystic effect, and cardboard shields. I didn't mind Robin's flicked-back hair. However, I was slightly bothered by the jerky storyline (what did Herne tell Robin to change his mind overnight? We shall never know...) and the more unbelievable parts, e.g. Robin running along with a fully-grown stag on his shoulders. The acting wasn't too wooden, though. Still, I prefer Disney's Robin ...

LOW BUDGET? No offence, but that's possibly the dumbest thing I've heard all year! You evidently don't know an awful lot about how TV programmes are made - the ENTIRE THING is shot on location. It cost an absolute fortune - and was worth every penny.

I'll second that; tastes may change and opinions may differ but Robin of Sherwood was not in any way "low budget". The main reason for it's limited run was that HTV couldn't afford to independantly finance it after production partner Goldcrest went bankrupt; shooting an all film, all location, historical drama doesn't come cheap.
