Like comfort food for the brain.,
This review is from: Robin Hood - Season One (5DVD) (DVD)Every so often the BBC conjures up a show that they seem to put all their best creative efforts into and come out with something as brillant as this. Unlike many other shows out there these days that race through at top speed to make as action-packed-edge-of-seat-every-moment-super-stressful as possible, Robin Hood as just the perfect amount of action, adventure, humour, wit and romance to make it both interesting and thoroughly enjoyable.
Where it is a wonderful rendition of a classic tale, fresh, new and unique with narrative echoes to it's predecessors, it is still just formulatic enough to be reassuring, heartening. Like comfort food.
