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.

Finally could get rid of my old VHS copies of this show and replace them with DVDs of Sets 1 and 2. Set 1 revolves around Michael Praed as Robin Hood, a peasant who is picked by Herne the Hunter, Lord of the Forest, to be his champion of justice for the downtrodden people of Nottingham. I won't give it away, but Set 2 stars another man as Robin Hood, this time the son of an Earl (played by Jason Connery, the son of Sean Connery). Part of the Set shows how Robin's Merry Men need to get used to another Robin, as well as his love, Marion. The Sheriff and Sir Guy are still wonderful (and funny, at times) foils for Robin and there is much magic and sword fighting and archery, often with pagan overtones.

Highly recommended set. Very well done for a TV show and only a bit dated looking at times.

"Robin of Sherwood" is my all time favorite Robin Hood series! Although, the first series with Michael Praed as Robin was the absolute best, Jason Connery does a great job as Robin in series 2. If you are a true Robin Hood fan as I am, I think this a definite series for you to consider; be sure to consider buying both of the series, with Michael Praed and Jason Connery as Robin, on DVD. It is very true to how life was at that time with living in the castle, and the English countryside. The characters are portrayed very well by each of the actors chosen for their roles. I highly recommend this series.

The two best known Robin hood legends are the tales of common born defender of the People, Robin of Loxley, and those of Nobleman turned Heroic Wolf's head, Robert of Huntingdon. This great series incorporated both. This set picks up with Robert of Huntingdon(Jason Connery) becoming the new "Hooded Man". Robert is at first apprehensive about taking on the Mantle of Robin Hood, but soon proves himself a worthy successor to Loxley. By the end of the second episode, everyone calls him "Robin" instead of Robert, and it's back to business as usual, robbing the rich, giving to the poor, and generally making life miserable for the Sheriff, and Sir Guy(continuing to be brilliantly played by Nickolas Grace, and Robert Addie, respectively - all the cast is great, but those two guys have incredible chemistry, and tend to steal just about every scene they're in!) As is the case with set 1, the Blu-Ray picture and sound are a noticeable step up from the DVD version, and well worth upgrading to. I did notice that this set seems to sport a touch more grain than set 1, but again, it's FILM grain, not compression artifacts. I highly recommend this set!
