This review is from: Robin of Sherwood: Complete Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
This is not exactly realistic but gives a reasonable impression of life in that time unlike the more recent TV series which really was a modern drama in medieval drag (a sort of 12th century Star Wars). At least, the scenery in this version was pleasant and the woodland scenes I really liked. Some attempt was made for authenticity. Robin Hood is a mythical figure and this portrays the story as such without going over the top. I liked the music of Clannad, incongruous or not. However, the other sound effects included some that sounded like a trapdoor closing on a bag of cymbals over and over, and another a shutter banging in the wind (with bells of course!) - these were a serious annoyance. No ideas why those sound `effects' were put in. Perhaps they were in training for our present day noise merchants.
