"With one exception we see an awful lot of Friar Tuck in these four episodes:
The Traitor; tells of three knights trusted with the delivery of Gold to King Richard but one of them has decided to turn.
The Knight who came to Dinner; introduces Sir Richard of the Lea (Ironically played by Ian Hunter who played King Richard in the Errol Flynn version). who with the help of Robin and Friar Tuck tries to save his castle. Tuck gets his dream job as a food taster.
The Wager; Is a pleasant story as Robin & Tuck have a wager to see if Robin can bring in more money from begging than Tuck can by praying.
The Friar's Pilgrimage; The friar is on his way to Canterbury for a Pilgrimage, Robin tags along for a stop on the way and they become involved with a Count trying to seize Lady Margaret's land. If your eyes are quick you will notice Patrick Troughton in a very fast cameo.
In all of the episodes we discover a bit about the days of Robin Hood. It's a good bit of history.
BTW It's been said that one can buy the seasons at Amazon UK, that is true to a point. The problem is they are not American format DVD'S. A dvd player is set to a particular format and can only be changed so many times. Now if you have an old player that you want to set for exclusive use for those DVD's it's worth your while. But you have to make that decision. For me, at this time it's not.
If the full seasons become available in US format, nobody will be happier than me.
