Editorial Reviews

"The definitive version of the story" —The Washington Post

History meets myth in a critically acclaimed classic

Connoisseurs of the Robin Hood legend call this action-packed British series the standard by which all other adaptations are measured. Rich with authentic historical detail and cunning plot twists, Robin of Sherwood adds a bit of sorcery and mysticism to the swordplay and social justice that have made the heroic outlaw so endearing and enduring. In these tales, the young nobleman Robert of Huntingdon (Jason Connery, Shanghai Noon) assumes the mantle of the fallen Robin of Loxley. Guided by the forest spirit Herne, he reassembles Robin’s band and resumes the campaign against the greedy Sheriff of Nottingham. Children and adults will thrill to Robin’s feats of derring-do in the mysterious, misty depths of medieval Sherwood. With an award-winning score by the traditional Irish band Clannad, this set includes the final 13 episodes of the series.

Gold Crest created a real winner in its imaginative 1984 "Robin of Sherwood" TV series adaptation of the Robin Hood legend.

The series originally ran for 4 seasons on British TV ... seasons one and two comprise "Part 1" (5 disks) of Acorn Media's DVD collection, and star Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley. Seasons three and four comprise "Part 2" (5 disks) of Acorn's DVD collection, and starred Jason Connery as Robert of Huntington. After wrapping at the end of season 4, the series went into syndication, and was re-aired here in the States in the late 1980's on Showtime ... I was one of the fortunate few who not only knew about the series back then, but also owned a VCR, so I was able to tape it - although the image quality of the masters used by Showtime was depressingly mediocre.

The series went on to develop a small but very loyal cult following. The soulful Celtic-themed music by Clannad (back when they were relatively unknown), the presence of old magic and myths comes to life (Herne the Hunter, Crom Cruac, witchcraft, etc.), and excellent performances by Ray Winstone (Will Scarlet -arguably the best actor on the series), Nickolas Grace (Sheriff of Nottingham), and Michael Praed (Robin of Loxley) all combined to make for a very enjoyable and nostalgic series. It just worked.

Now, here we are 20 years later, and at long last, this little known cult series has been re-released on high-quality DVDs (hooray !), so that it can be seen and enjoyed anew - not just by it's original fans, but by a new generation of viewers as well.

Though I missed Michael Praed as Robin in the Hood, Jason did a remarkable job taking over. I wasn't a big Judi Trott fan but the writing and the filming were excellent. The best of the Robin Hood legends that I have ever seen. The stories are interesting, the humor is great, I still remember lines from these shows after all these years. I was very happy when Set 1 came out, but watching that made me want Set 2, so I was happy to know that it followed shortly.
The filming stays to period and they did not scrimp on sets and extras. The cast is great and very believable.
What more can I say, than what I already have, the BEST of all the Robin Hood movies/series.

I am thrilled to learn that this remarkable show is going to be available on DVD. Both versions, the first starring Michael Praed and the second starring Jason Connery were [in my opinion] the most authentic [looking] of any made to date.

I recently purchased Season 1 and was afraid that I would never see the final chapters available on DVD on this side of the Atlantic.

Waiting till October is going to be very difficult.

I originally saw this series when Showtime brought it over from the BBC/UK back in the 80s and aired it here in the US. I loved it then and it still holds up well today, even if some of the "special effects" do look dated. The acting and dialogue is very well done, and the interaction between the Sheriff and his henchman Guy is often downright hysterical. Too, the transition between "Robin of Locksley" and "Robert of Huntington" was well done and a great concept.

This is the second dvd set to the Robin of Sherwood series that was on PBS here in the states or BBC in England. I watched this series as a kid in England and was happy to see it finally come out here in the states. This was the and still is the cheapest place to purchase this set.

The first episodes of "Richard Carpenter's Robin of Sherwood" came out in the early 1980's on public broadcasting t.v. They were AWESOME! The story line and characters were rich and complelling. I especially liked Michael Praed (Robin of Loxley), his acting abilities gave flair to his character and there was a nice on screen chemistry with Judi Trott (Marion). I was very sad when the series killed Robin for the finale.
But the series was continued . . . Herne the hunter picks a new champion . . . Robert of Huntington (Jason Connery) the son of an Earl, to pick up where Robin of Loxley left off. Robert initally denies Herne, saying he could never take Robin's place as the Hooded Man. But when Marion (Judi Trott) is kidnapped by the evil Lord Owen of Clun, he is faced with the task of finding the rest of the band to help free her. This mission brings them together and the group sees that while Robert is not like their former leader, there is still goodness in him and his heart is in the right place. Marion still grieves for her former husband and despite Roberts obvious interest in her she is reluctant to give her heart to another man who can break it. The finale was awesome, Marion gives her heart to Robin who vows he will NEVER leave her, the evil Gulmar (Richard O'Brian) returns with a monsterous creation intent on killing Herne the Hunter, a cliff-hanger yet (thankfully the writers DIDN'T kill this Robin off . . . well, not exactly) . . . but there was no happy ending for this Robin & Marion either.
Very well created & highly recommended viewing, definitely a classic. Personally I liked the first Robin of the Hood (Michael Praed), but the writers of this series were quite successful in introducing the new Robin of the Hood (Jason Connery) for this second set (no easy task).
