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.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Robin Hood series November 19, 2007
By Darby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Goldcrest was the best! November 2, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone to Sherwood August 20, 2007
By Tamgn
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Robin Hood interpretations ever. November 8, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great series January 30, 2012

I loved this series when it was on Showtime back in the 80s. Too bad it was taken off the air. If you like that renaissance type of stuff, this is a must see series. Each lasts 1 hr.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheesy 80s fun August 27, 2009
Format:DVD
When watching this show, I was struck by how much it reminded me of the Doctor Who episodes that I remember from the time complete with the gratuitous electronic music and the low budgets. I was also a little disappointed that it wasn't the new Robin Hood that I had heard so much about. And that beginning of "Roooobin Roooobin [mumble mumble] dudundadaaaaaa!" was just too much.

But as I watched the thing, I really started to fall in love with the series. The sheriff is always hatching a diabolical plan unless King John screws him over and then he's gotta turn to Robin for help. Everyone keeps breaking into the castle to rescue the rest of the cast. Jason Connery brings an innocence to the role and the rest of the cast does great work. There are moments of Hey!!! That guy! Especially with Ray Winstone and Matt Frewer who shows up as a villain in one episode. Both of whom are vastly different than their quintessential roles in Sexy Beast and Max Headroom: 20 Minutes Into the Future respectively. There are also some great moments of medieval legends throughout the series.

It also gets progressively stranger as demonic cities and golems start showing up. I'm quite sure that the original conception didn't involve crazy witches and evil children. Richard O'Brien can only play Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Widescreen Edition) but it's fun to see him playing the demonic wizard (of course, try to watch any of his episodes without yelling "hey Riff Raff...
