Forget about the green tights,
This review is from: Robin Hood : The Complete BBC Series 1 Box Set  [DVD] (DVD)
I agree that there is much wrong with the BBC's latest re-imagining of Robin Hood - IF all you are worried about is historical accuracy. However, for those that simply expect Saturday teatime family drama to entertain and bring families together, it's pretty darn good. That said, some of the actors are a bit poor - notably the strangely wooden Harry Lloyd as Will Scarlet, and the rather irritating Marian, but these weaknesses are compensated for by plenty of action, lashings of gallows humour, and some sumptuous (okay, ignore the fact that this was filmed in Hungary) English greenwood settings.
Put your brain in neutral, and simply enjoy a slice of highly entertaining BBC action/adventure - you won't be disappointed.
