5.0 out of 5 stars old movie charm in a T.V. series October 5, 2009
Format:DVD
I bought the 4 individual seasons of this series at a higher price, and felt it was worth over $40 for all of them. This is a great old-fashioned series which has aged very well. The stories are all nice little adventures that still play out quite well in the modern era. There is minimal violence and the actors are all very good in their roles. After watching all of the episodes, I'm impressed by the variety of stories that were told. Obviously, the endings are pretty happy, but that doesn't have to be seen as a bad thing.

Note that the series is in black and white, and there is some sound volume and quality fluctuation, but nothing that makes it hard to understand or unwatchable. If you like charming old adventure movies, I'd strongly recommend buying this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Better Greene in Sherwood Forest January 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This TV series has hung in my memory over 40 years, obviously my first introduction to english culture, long before seeing Errol Flynn in the big screen version of Robin Hood. This is an early review of this series, mind you, before seeing the 90 or so remaining episodes. No matter. If you like "I, Claudius, " and "Poldark," you must see this wonderful black-and-white introduction to the British standards of locale/studio dramatizations. With adult eyes, I am amazed at the way the writers avoided trampling the Hollywood scene cliches to this fable, realizing they had more time to add depth and imagination to this Robin Hood, maintaining its plausability along the way. For instance, how did Robin gain leadership over the men of Sherwood Forest? He earned it, reluctantly, by displaying a deeper wisdom in proving himself. Having seen the early (1929)silent Fairbanks "Robin Hood," shot in romantic hues of light and dark, with spare period furniture,it is apparent to me now that the British team of craftsmen may have had that in mind in their location shooting.The noblemen do speak more eloquently than the peasantry, but each has their code of honor or dishonor accordingly. If you have kids and would like to introduce them to the harmless myths like Robin Hood that will remain with them years later, this is a great introduction like Life 101. Episodes will pit greed against obligation; obligations to king or the gang; right versus might. Loyalty to the gang or the family. There is clearly a logic and rationale upon which each episode hangs. We are rational beings is what Robin Hood argues throughout and that right gets contested and we must be fit for that contest daily.There is a greater need for this moral fable today, wouldn't you agree?

5.0 out of 5 stars Robin Hood. Classic television and an absolute joy ! April 17, 2010
Format:DVD
Having never seen this series on television and with only reviews as a guide, I purchased all 143 episodes and braced myself. What an absolute joy this turned out to be. Charming characters, distinctive good guys and bad guys, interesting stories and all with a little touch of romance. After watching nearly half the episodes, the series has still not yielded one bad episode or lost any of it's charm. Each episode is a 25 minute upbeat investment that makes you feel good and positive. As an added bonus some of the first episodes have snippets of commercials from the 1950's imbedded in the opening. Great stuff.

The sound quality is respectable, and aside from the black and white tones lightening or darkening slightly with each episode or occasionally taking on a greenish hue, this is highly watchable. The local peasant characters, the castles, the sword fights, and the knights in their period costumes make for a television series that you will look forward to watching. America has westerns and the British have their medieval romps. Robin Hood is a gem that gets the highest recommendation.
