The Baron orders the use of bloodhounds to hunt Robin. The bloodhound, although in existence as a breed sometime after the year 1000 AD, was not a favored breed for tracking until the end of the 1500's. See more »
I will not marry to symbolize a peace, or to ratify a treaty. But... this man I will have... because he makes the May tree blossom and the bees buzz in my breast. I will take this man because he brings springtime to my heart.

Don't be put off by the "TV" in the title-this is a full-blown, first-class movie. Patrick Bergin gives his Robin a sense of humor and a spark of humanity. Uma Thurman, though not the most beautiful girl in the world (that honor still remains with Olivia), is sexy, vivacious, and definitely post-modern. A few scenes don't quite develop as far as they can, but all is forgiven by the Parade of Fools in the climactic moments. One big difference between this movie and Flynn's is that here they use broadswords rather than rapiers (more realistically). Instead of the "tck tck tck" of swordplay, here there are loud "Clangs" when the blades miss their target. It makes for a really good setpiece battle between Robin and his fierce (here, French) enemy. Nothing will replace the Errol Flynn Robin Hood, but this account is vigorous, funny, and filled with little surprises.
