An Excellent Show,
By A Customer
This review is from: Robin Of Sherwood: Series 1 - Episodes 1-3 [DVD]  (DVD)
This show is a true classic -- the best portrayal of Robin Hood yet to be seen in the eyes of many. It was made in the 80s, but that takes nothing away from it's content. "Robin of Sherwood" is not a fluffy show... it shows the hardships Robin and his men would've had to endure in Medieval Times, unlike other watered-down versions of Robin Hood. (Richard the Lionheart never knights and saves Robin from Prince John.) It's a British show, so of course our hero actually HAS a british accent. The acting is good, especially well is Michael Praed's (Robin Hood).
Robin of Sherwood combines adventure, a little romance, and even mysticism (the outlaws' protector and ruler of Sherwood is the god: Herne the Hunter). It's even enchanting.
Robin of Sherwood is my favorite show, and it is one of (if not THE) most historically accurate show to be put on the screen. It is, hands down, SUPERB, and WELL WORTH the money to purchase it.
Also, be careful not to fall off your chair when you first see Michael Praed. *wink*
