2.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking...., August 10, 2010
This review is from: Robin Hood: Season 3 (DVD)
...because this show was genuinely one of my favorite things in life. It had so many wonderful things, and even after the second season ended, I held out hope that the third season would work its magic to make the lack of Marian-Djaq-Will bearable. But no. The last few episodes literally had me crying--all the characters I had loved since the beginning met lackluster and pitiful ends. I felt so bad that this is how I would last remember them. The new characters weren't terrible per se; they just could not compare with shoes left behind. Isabella was God-awful, and I wishing for her death the moment I saw her on screen. Call me a traditionalist, but to see an evil, manipulative and selfish character replace the determined and righteous Marian was just too much. Tuck was promising but faded into just another prop piece with an occasional line or two. I can say though the last three minutes were my favorite part of the series, but I didn't like what I went through to get there. I really wish I hadn't seen this season, it just left me feeling empty and depressed over what became of the show.

There are so many things wrong with this remake of Robin Hood, that it's hard to know where to begin. And Season 3 is the absolute worst. The series is shallow. Robin and his merry men come off as a bunch of men who never made it out of puberty---except for John. The English did not have recurve bows and they sure as heck didn't use target-point arrows. Marian was the only real adult among the heroes, but got killed off for no good reason. Joanne Froggart is extraordinary in "Lark Rise to Candleford," but as Kate in this series, she's no more than window dressing; she's certainly no replacement for Marian. Why do they take Kate with them to Nottingham when she's supposed to be hiding? Is she a shield maiden or adept at marshal arts? Nope---she just gets captured again---when she had no purpose in coming with the boys. And speaking of-getting captured never really seems like a big problem; just tell a joke or two, flirt and come up some clever repartee to pass the time. I can't go on---it's too painful and a waste of time. Just reading the summaries of the remaining episodes is more depressing---so I'm stopping here and will go on to more interesting series.

Dreadful manipulation of story line.

Cannot fathom "grown up" Marion's undying love for that emotional flyweight & arrested adolescent Robin. Kid stuff. Gisborne was Dostoevskian. His singular passion, all consuming, complicated, and profligately bizaare was the more reviting and worthy of development.
