Movie Reviews

Excellent Series, Poor DVD casing
Breyel | MALAYSIA | 01/24/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The series is excellent and faithful to the literary history surrounding the Robin Hood legends. Clannad's music adds a bit of authenticity, as does the use of magic and superstition, and the UK setting.

Acorn did a reasonably good job digitizing and adding subtitles to the original film. Colour was on the dark side, but nothing that can't be adjusted.

The poor packaging of the 'complete' set prevents me from giving it a perfect score. I like the look and the folding-book concept of it, but the casing is made of hard plastic, making it prone to chipping and difficult to remove the DVDs carefully without breaking or cracking them. I had a similar problem with the "I Spy - Four-Pack Collection" cases. So, take care to remove the DVDs lest you damage them permanently. You might consider alternative storage like a plastic CD envelope case, considering this DVD set is not cheap.

Aside from this, I highly recommend the complete Robin Hood set."
Nothing is ever forgotten.

"It's been years since my old VCR recordings of this show pretty much wore out and bit the dust, so I was thrilled to find out it was available on DVD.
Robin of Sherwood was a favorite of my pre-teen years and has held up very well with it's combination of history,legend and fantasy. Some of the special effects are dated, but that's to be expected.
The real strength of the series was in the characters. It may have been the best cast version of the story. Clive Mantle is the best Little John, Phil Rose is the best Friar Tuck, and so on through the entire cast. There's even the addition of Nasir who, with his man of few words demeanor and two sword fighting style was just about the coolest thing a D and D loving 12 years old had ever seen.
I do think the quality fell off a little when Jason Connery joined the show, though not through any fault of his own. The writing focused more on plot then characters in that season and the chemistry suffered a bit from it. I would actually give the Michael Praed episodes a full five stars.
All in all I'm glad to have found it and any minor flaws in the series are far, far out weighed by its strengths. If you where a fan of the show you should definitely get your hands on a copy. Though given the price it's worth knowing it's available on Netflix. And I'm fairly certain fans of the Robin Hood legend in general will be more then pleased with this production."

"Picture is fuzzy not digitallly remastered. Also Disk 2 had a glitch in it on the first play. Disk is clean. Over all quality is not great."

"I watched this series over 18+ years ago, when my oldest son was just born. I have been waiting for the day when it would be widely available in the US and on DVD, because up until a couple years ago it was only available for International sale and only in VHS format. If your a true Robin Hood fan as I consider myself then I feel you'll very much enjoy this DVD Mini Series, the fact that is was only three seasons long means that the creator and his development team had to made every episode count and they do, action, fantasy, romance there's something for everyone. I recommend you pick this one up!"
