This is another of the wonderful TV series produced by the BBC having to do with British story telling. The set designs are beautiful and capture the medieval period exactly. An actual castle in France was utilized for the exteriors and the sets built for the interior scenes are incredibly accurate. The episodes are written with flourish, displaying both swashbuckling adventure and emotional sensitivity in a perfect blend that captures the attention of the viewer and doesn't let go. And the characters! Jonas Armstrong portrays Robin Hood with a perfect combination of whimsy and seriousness that tops any other actor I've ever seen in the role. Keith Allen is excellent as the Sheriff of Nottingham, using sarcasm and dark humor to offset the complete evilness of the character. Richard Armitage plays Sir Guy of Gisbourne as a tortured soul, caught between his love of Maid Marian and his brutal quest for power. Lucy Griffiths is absolutely enchanting as Marian, who is both a sensitive, caring woman, and a genius with the sword when she has to be. The other supporting characters, who make up Robin's band of "merry men" are all wonderful. This is one series that I feel fortunate to have seen, and will happily watch again and again.
Bought this as a gift. Heard it is a good series. Looked around online and discovered it is hard to find for a great price. Go Ebay!
I bought this product to replace the one that had been left somewhere. I like the product because, well, it's Robin Hood! (What is not to like)?! I do not usually repurchase an item that has been lost or damaged, but I really like this rendition of Robin Hood, so I purchased it again.
My husband and I watched the series on BBC America and loved it Glad I was able to purchase it. Looking forward to watch it all over again with him.
