'Little John' Learns Who The Good Guys Are
29 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this third episode, we are introduced to someone who turns out to be someone who joins Robin Hood and his band of "outlaws" in Sherwood Forest: the seven-foot "Little John" (Archie Duncan).

John is somewhat dense-but-amiable guy who, like anyone else, just desires to live the life of a free man. The scoundrels who work for the dastardly sheriff of Nottingham offer him just that (freedom) if he'll capture and bring to them just one member of the outlaw gang. Sounds like a good deal to him....but it turns out to be a lot more than he bargained for, in a few areas. I won't say more, to spoil anything. This is a fun episode, I can say that.

This story was a good example of the intelligence of Robin Hood, who pulls a few clever stunts to get what he wants. It's very entertaining material. The title of the episode tells you how much of an outlaw Robin has become in such a short time. He is now wanted "dead or alive." We get another villain in here: the prissy Earl Of Bedford, played by John Rutland He's another guy who is instantly unlikable. I can see, even in just three episodes, the writers of this show had clear delineations of "good guys" and "bad guys." For example, in here we know "John" is a good guy, even if he doesn't appear so for awhile.

There is one quick scene, too, of "Marian," so I'm sure we'll see more of her soon.
