3.0 out of 5 stars Tongue-in-cheek entertainment June 27, 2009
English folk legend Robin Hood is a perennial staple of the screen. This 2006 and -2007 BBC version has duel story lines: for the youngsters Hood and his altruistic band steal from the rich to give to the poor in sword fighting adventures and good always triumphs. For the more mature viewers, there is the seXY factor which I am not sure the producers were expecting when they cast North & South heartthrob Richard Armitage as a black-clad bad boy snared in a love triangle. Armitage may well be burning up while fighting in that outfit but he radiates pure sexual heat. It's a credit to RA's empathy for his character's motivation that as the series progresses it becomes possible for the viewer to find Guy romantic rather than menacing (watch out girls!).

S1 introduces Robin, Earl Of Locksley (Jason Armstrong), disillusioned after his return from the Crusades; the lovely, goodhearted but naive Marian (Lucy Griffiths); the wickedly funny Sheriff (Keith Allen); his ruthless henchman, Sir Guy of Gisborne (Richard Armitage); and the changing band of Merry Men (and one woman). The premise establishes England is threatened internally by grasping evil doers such as the Sheriff and Sir Guy while good King Richard is away in the Holy Land fighting the infidels. The action centers around Nottingham Castle, Sherwood Forest and Locksley Manor, Robin's former estate. A bitter conflict emerges as the grasping Guy confiscated Robin's lands while he was off fighting and now refuses to return them so Robin is forced to become a hooded outlaw.

To add insult to injury, Guy starts moving in on Marian who has issues with her former fiancee, the feckless and possibly PTSS, Robin.
