Editorial Reviews

The complete series of the fantasy smash hit Robin Hood--now in one gift set! The popular retelling of the Robin Hood legend is back with a hot young cast, and breathtaking archery, incredible swordplay, energy, humor, brute force, and the raw determination to right wrongs. Robin of Locksley returns from serving King Richard in the Crusades to find his home under the oppression of the sadistic Sheriff of Nottingham, and the Sheriff’s right hand man Guy of Gisborne has his eye on Robin’s childhood sweetheart Marian. Will Robin be able to save his people? Or will in justice overcome everything he stands for?

On preparing to sit through 3 seasons of BBC's "Robin Hood," it's best to know what to anticipate. If you're expecting any sort of historical insight or don't want anyone tampering with the "classic" tale of Mr. Hood--then I'd advise you to take a pass. Do I even need to say what "Robin Hood" is about? Robin is a former noble who becomes an outlaw and forms a posse to (duh!) rob from the establishment and aid the poor. This version casts attractive actors, employs anachronistic language, and is firmly rooted in modern (and politically correct) sensibilities. The production is slick, stunts and camerawork exemplary--this is a well crafted entertainment. Most episodes move at a brisk and amusing pace, and even when things seem to lack real danger--the series more than compensates with humor. The plots aren't particularly revelatory, but any lack of originality is likely to be forgiven due to the energetic and likable performances.

And the success of this "Robin Hood" rest squarely on Jonas Armstrong's shoulders. Armstrong is a star! Perhaps a bit slight for a true action hero, Armstrong is wildly appealing and has great comic timing. His need to be loved by the people is a running gag and one that works exceedingly well--but, then again, who wouldn't love this Robin? Keith Allen is a stellar Sheriff of Nottingham, this is comic villainy at its finest. Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne is the show's real menace and does a nice job with a somewhat underwritten part (he isn't fully fleshed out until season 2). Lucy Griffiths plays an earnest Marion--updated to hero status herself just to be fair. At first, the show had trouble incorporating Marion into the main action and her tone was always more somber--but a balance is reached as the show progresses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Promising Start, Excellent Middle, Divisive Finish... September 27, 2010
The latest television incarnation of the Robin Hood story (following on from the 1950's The Adventures of Robin Hood starring Richard Greene, the 1980's cult classic Robin of Sherwood and - if you insist - the ludicrous 1990's New Adventures Of Robin Hood) ran from 2006 to 2009, consisting of 39 episodes and spanning three seasons in total. It ran the gamut from poignant, joyful, suspenseful television to ...well, complete nonsense at times, but when the show was at its peak, it was a wonderful character-driven drama that showcased the remarkable talent of its ensemble cast and tapped into our lasting fascination with the legends of Robin Hood.

Robin of Locksley and his faithful manservant Much return home from five years fighting the Third Crusade (yes, *five* years, that's your first clue that the writers never bothered with silly things like research and accuracy) only to find that the England has changed in their absence. Nottingham is ruled by the tyrannical and slightly unhinged Sheriff Vaizey, and Locksley's lands and estates have been seized by the deep-voiced, dark-stubbled, leather-clad Guy of Gisborne.

Neither is there a warm welcome waiting in the arms of Lady Marian. Robin's childhood sweetheart is severely unimpressed by his reappearance - at least, that's what she wants him to think. When the injustice and barbarism becomes too much for Robin to bear, he openly defies the Sheriff and goes into hiding in Sherwood Forest, collecting a ragtag bunch of outlaws on the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome February 6, 2011
By csmith
Verified Purchase
I haven't seen other versions of Robin Hood besides the one with Russel Crowe (which I thought was rather average) and the one with Kevin Costner (which is your typical knight-in-shining armor & damsel-in-distress sort of film), so when I came across this series I was pleasantly surprised. Seasons 1 & 2 maintain a good balance of comedy & action while driving the storyline along.

I now have the opinion that Jonas Armstrong is the only one who can truly play Robin Hood, but I also found myself loving Keith Allen's portrayal of the Sheriff of Nottingham. When the bad guys are on screen without the accompanying hero, my eyes are still glued to the screen.

If you haven't seen the show though, you should be forewarned about season(series) 3. (I'll try to keep this vague enough so I don't give anything away, but be forewarned if you don't want anything given away). I could deal with the way they ended season 2, but everything seems to fall apart in season 3, so expect a lot of variations in the final season. Not only do a lot of the former characters get shoved to the background, but the new characters they introduce come nowhere close to filling that void. Prince John is the only character, in my opinion, that comes close to the former characters that mixed comedy/action. And, there were a few episodes I thought were a complete waste of time as they had nothing to do really with Robin Hood protecting the people of Nottingham, and instead seemed to try and set up characters for another season after Jonas Armstrong's departure. If you prepare yourself for a letdown after two great seasons of show though, then you should be able to sit back and watch without too much angst.

If you loved the show and can forgive the faults in season 3, then get the whole series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Enough Robin Hood remakes
Wish I hadn't spent $70 on this boring television production. The actor who plays Robin Hood is too small. Where are all the manly men in Britain?
