Movie Reviews

My favorite Robin Hood series
Darby | 11/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Gold Crest created a real winner in its imaginative 1984 "Robin of Sherwood" TV series adaptation of the Robin Hood legend.

The series originally ran for 4 seasons on British TV ... seasons one and two comprise "Part 1" (5 disks) of Acorn Media's DVD collection, and star Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley. Seasons three and four comprise "Part 2" (5 disks) of Acorn's DVD collection, and starred Jason Connery as Robert of Huntington. After wrapping at the end of season 4, the series went into syndication, and was re-aired here in the States in the late 1980's on Showtime ... I was one of the fortunate few who not only knew about the series back then, but also owned a VCR, so I was able to tape it - although the image quality of the masters used by Showtime was depressingly mediocre.

The series went on to develop a small but very loyal cult following. The soulful Celtic-themed music by Clannad (back when they were relatively unknown), the presence of old magic and myths comes to life (Herne the Hunter, Crom Cruac, witchcraft, etc.), and excellent performances by Ray Winstone (Will Scarlet -arguably the best actor on the series), Nickolas Grace (Sheriff of Nottingham), and Michael Praed (Robin of Loxley) all combined to make for a very enjoyable and nostalgic series. It just worked.

Now, here we are 20 years later, and at long last, this little known cult series has been re-released on high-quality DVDs (hooray !), so that it can be seen and enjoyed anew - not just by it's original fans, but by a new generation of viewers as well.

Recommended.

Goldcrest was the best!

"Though I missed Michael Praed as Robin in the Hood, Jason did a remarkable job taking over. I wasn't a big Judi Trott fan but the writing and the filming were excellent. The best of the Robin Hood legends that I have ever seen. The stories are interesting, the humor is great, I still remember lines from these shows after all these years. I was very happy when Set 1 came out, but watching that made me want Set 2, so I was happy to know that it followed shortly.
The filming stays to period and they did not scrimp on sets and extras. The cast is great and very believable.
What more can I say, than what I already have, the BEST of all the Robin Hood movies/series."

"I am thrilled to learn that this remarkable show is going to be available on DVD. Both versions, the first starring Michael Praed and the second starring Jason Connery were [in my opinion] the most authentic [looking] of any made to date.

I recently purchased Season 1 and was afraid that I would never see the final chapters available on DVD on this side of the Atlantic.

Waiting till October is going to be very difficult.

One of the best Robin Hood interpretations ever.

"I originally saw this series when Showtime brought it over from the BBC/UK back in the 80s and aired it here in the US. I loved it then and it still holds up well today, even if some of the "special effects" do look dated. The acting and dialogue is very well done, and the interaction between the Sheriff and his henchman Guy is often downright hysterical. Too, the transition between "Robin of Locksley" and "Robert of Huntington" was well done and a great concept."
