5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore the bad reviews., 28 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I felt I had to write a review defending this series because of all the people slamming it. Whenever you get a good show there's always people who feel the need to say it's stopped being good after a few series whether it has or it hasn't. Personally I don't think it has. Some of the storylines are pretty unbelievable - Bob getting a Thai bride, Ben thinking he will die on Friday at 12.00 etc but so what? It's still funny. The new characters in this series are well written and have many angles to their personalities just like all the others and the joining of the two schools give the series a new spin and stop it being repetitive. I'm pretty sure all of Teachers is on 4OD anyway so why not watch it first and then decide.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection Animated, 12 July 2006
This review is from: Robin Hood [Disney] [DVD] (DVD)
Robin Hood is by far the best Disney film - there is no doubt about it. The voices are pretty distinctive which is always a plus. The songs are so much more catchy than in the other films. "Love" is particularly gorgeous. The romance between Maid Marian and Robin Hood is extremely sweet because in the majority of Disney films the main characters meet once and fall in love (Cinderella, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty) or don't even meet at all (Snow White). Maid Marian and Robin Hood have actually known each other from being young - the whole concept of childhood sweethearts is generally cute.

Robin Hood also shows the fact that things have to get to being rock bottom before they get better. Robin Hood doesn't just look out for Nottingham and therefore isn't on call while everyone in the area ends up being jailed for not being able to pay their taxes. Disney films (and other cartoons) don't normally show the depths of despair reached in this movie. "Not in Nottingham" is a particularly poignant song illustrating this.

The film is not all doom and gloom and the humour is present throughout, from all the characters - good and bad. The baddy sucks his thumb and is easily flattered - often the cause of his failure.

Watch it and see!
