This classic television series ran from 1955 to 1960, featuring the tales of Robin Hood and his band of Merry Men. Richard Greene stars as our gallant hero who fought the forces of the evil Prince John, his local official the Sheriff of Nottingham and any aristocrat or ne'er-do-well who threatened the common people and loyal subjects of King Richard.

So far I have enjoyed it greatly, as I did when it first was televised back in 1955. I have no issues with black and white programs since that is how I saw television until the mid 60s when color television was more common in homes that could finally afford it.
Despite the age of the series, there doesn't seem to be many issues with either the video or the audio. One thing that I have noticed is that the episodes are not only not in chronological order, but the earliest ones do not have the correct cast lists in all of them. Those episodes look to be the ones that have the sponsor named at the opening title. There aren't many of them, but it was disappointing not to know who played some of the roles
Having found the episode list with release dates on the Internet, the incorrect episode order makes it a bit odd to note King Richard being called "dead" in the Holy Land, when he appeared in two episodes previously.
That brings up another point. The final episode of season one in the set, "The Prisoner", is actually the first episode in season two according to the release date in the episode list with the plotlines and some featured cast members. With the wrong season one episode as the final, it seemed logical that the correct episode, "The Scientist", would be the first one on season two. But that too is not the case. "The Scientist" is actually the second episode on the season two first disc. To make things even more scrambled up, the first episode of season two on the disc, "A Village Wooing", is actually a season three episode.
All in all, if the episodes not being in chronological order don't bother you, the Merry Men of Sherwood Forest should keep you well entertained. The staff fighting is more fun to watch than the sword play, and Little John and Friar Tuck provide quite a bit of the humor. I am looking forward to viewing the rest of the episodes and will update this review if it is warranted.
