Season one of Robin Hood started off alright, but picked up towards the end -- with massive sword fights, a hero who finally had enough and was willing to play naughty, and even mutiny within the ranks of the merry men.
Like other reviewers claimed, there was just the right pinch of adventure (even a flashback to when Robin protected the King in the Holy Land), romance (can we say "love triangle" much?), humour and evil.
Most people know the story of Robin Hood and will notice differences compared to Kevin Costner's version, or even the older Hollywood versions of Robin Hood. Yes, the wardrobe in this version is much more modern, and Marian (Lucy Griffiths) plays a feminist, who fights against cruelty and injustice. There are also historical anachronisms or "that doesn't make sense" moments, but for the most part, it's an enjoyable, eye-candy series.
