Product Description

Robin Hood: Season Three (DVD)

The legend continues... With new allies and old enemies, Robin Hood returns for a third series full of thrilling adventures as Robin and his gang continue to outwit the dastardly Sheriff and his forces. As the series begins, the outlaws are in disarray. Marian is dead and Robin has split up the gang and launched a solo mission to avenge her and kill Gisborne. It is only the intervention of the mysterious Tuck that stops Robin joining Marian in an early grave. Which is bad news for Gisbourne and the Sheriff. Under pressure from Prince John, they must take down Robin Hood once and for all. When the prince, tired of their ineffectualness and bad leadership, arrives in Nottingham to reprimand the Sheriff and Gisbourne, it becomes clear that there is only room forone sidekick at his table,but which one?



"This ends here," proclaims Robin Hood in the explosive season finale to this royally entertaining BBC series. A very potent Robin Hood drinking game could be devised for whenever Robin (Jonas Armstrong), Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage), or the poisonous Sheriff of Nottingham (Keith Allen) utter words to that effect. So many times throughout the series' three seasons each has had the chance to kill one of the others but has not, or has been presumed dead, only to return. So we can sympathize with Prince John's skeptical emissary, who remarks in the season 3 opener, "Haven't we been here before?" when Gisborne claims to have killed Robin. But these final episodes are not the same olde same olde. Following the devastating murder of Marion at the end of season 2, they up the emotional ante as "a battle so huge" (for the future of England) comes down to the important few. This includes Isabella (Lara Pulver), Gisborne's no-less-treacherous sister (who knew?). Other new characters are welcome additions to Robin's band. They include Brother Tuck (David Harewood), a spiritual warrior who restores Robin's shaken sense of purpose, and Kate (Joanne Froggatt), a fiercely skilled villager out to avenge the murder of her brother at Gisborne's hand. As the season unfolds, there are surprising alliances and bitter betrayals in Robin's tireless fight against injustice and cruelty. The writing may be less inspired than previously (there is some feverish backstory revisionism concerning Robin and Gisborne), but the ensemble continues to do heroic work. A discful of special features scores a bull's-eye with a half-hour featurette on the making of season 3; a short segment about the creation of the trebuchet, a medieval catapult, which figures prominently in the two-part finale; entertaining profiles of the season's new characters; and two days-in-the-life of cast members Pulver and Clive Standen, who portrays Archer. --Donald Liebenson

There are many things you can do in a "Robin Hood" retelling. The BBC's version of the legend has proved beyond the shadow of a doubt that killing off Maid Marian is definitely not one of them - though I'm sure many of us could have told them that *before* they actually went through with it. Prior to the airing of the third season of "Robin Hood", Laura Burrows of IGN interviewed Jonas Armstrong (Robin) on the upcoming series, with emphasis on the departure of Lucy Griffiths. She ended her article with this prediction:

"In total, the actor made light of Griffiths' quick exodus and did his best to throw us a few bones for the third season, but it seems that the writers may be scrambling to fill in the gaps made by a missing love interest and that the cast will be flying by the seat of their pants, acting scene-by-scene, until they came come to grips with an unsteady storyline." (August 4, 2008)

Burrows' prediction was spot-on. Although there are plenty of note-worthy things about Season Three, the show has lost most of its charm - not just because of Marian's death, but due to the complete restructuring of the show itself by new management. The man responsible for the decision to kill Marian (series creator Dominic Mingella) played no part in this season, credited as "creator" in the opening credits, but contributing nothing to the directing, writing or storylines at all. This is distinctly odd considering the self-congratulatory tones he took in various interviews and on the Season Two DVDs, in which he calls Marian's death an opportunity to "rock the show to its core," to "see a darker side to Robin," and to "open up new storytelling possibilities.

One big challenge of this season was to cope with the loss of Marian. As a number of people have noted, her death left a big emotional hole at the center of the show, one that Season 3 was never quite able to fill (despite Isabella). At the same time, it set up some fascinating storylines, particularly for Guy of Gisborne. Do I wish they hadn't killed Marian? Yes and no -- obviously, it depends on what sort of alternate Season 3 we would have gotten with Marian alive. I realize that for some people a "Robin Hood" without Robin and Marian is unthinkable, but I'm not one of those people. I also didn't mind the lack of a happy ending; many versions of "Robin Hood" do not end happily, and this version of RH was always pretty dark, IMO, despite its lighthearted moments.

With that in mind, here are my grades for the various components of this season....




* Guy's character arc. It was fascinating to watch Guy grow a spine vis-a-vis the Sheriff. I liked the fact that his remorse and horror at what he has done does not immediately plunge him into a quest for atonement. Instead he becomes an even darker character for a while than he was in S1/2; he flails around, first seeking revenge against Robin and sinking deeper and deeper into self-loathing, then throwing himself back into ambition and the quest for power only to realize how empty that quest is, and hitting rock bottom before he can rediscover his humanity and reconnect to his love for Marian. I'm not a huge fan of the "redemption by death" motif, and (apparently unlike Richard Armitage) I don't care for the idea that Guy had to die at the end to pay for his crimes.

...because this show was genuinely one of my favorite things in life. It had so many wonderful things, and even after the second season ended, I held out hope that the third season would work its magic to make the lack of Marian-Djaq-Will bearable. But no. The last few episodes literally had me crying--all the characters I had loved since the beginning met lackluster and pitiful ends. I felt so bad that this is how I would last remember them. The new characters weren't terrible per se; they just could not compare with shoes left behind. Isabella was God-awful, and I wishing for her death the moment I saw her on screen. Call me a traditionalist, but to see an evil, manipulative and selfish character replace the determined and righteous Marian was just too much. Tuck was promising but faded into just another prop piece with an occasional line or two. I can say though the last three minutes were my favorite part of the series, but I didn't like what I went through to get there. I really wish I hadn't seen this season, it just left me feeling empty and depressed over what became of the show.

As a rabid "Robin Hood" fan who loved seasons 1 and 2, season 3 is a must-buy for me. Yes, this season had its flaws--some unlikable characters (Kate), lack of continuity in some of the stories, a less-than-happy ending, etc., but the superb acting and some very memorable and moving story lines made it worthwhile. So much to love about this series when you look past the negatives. Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne alone was enough to keep me watching! Can't get enough of the bad boy in black leather! He's simply breathtaking in this season as he sinks to the depths after killing Marian, then makes his slow and painful climb toward redemption. Best part of season 3,IMHO. I definitely recommend this to anyone who loved the first two seasons!
