Wonderful beginning to a delightful series
28 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was one of my favorites as a youngster. Evidently the series is in the public domain and many of the episodes are now readily available (Matinee Classics, Internet Archive, Uncle Ear's Classic Television Channel). That is a good thing as the show is very enjoyable with the personable and charming Richard Greene, the excellent supporting cast, and the engaging scripts (with just the right amount of humor). In this, the pilot episode, Robin of Locksley returns home from the Crusades to find that his lands have been taken by an upstart Norman (played to smarmy perfection by Rumpole of the Bailey, Leo McKern). After saving a poacher from being killed by foresters, Robin is declared a criminal by the Sheriff of Nottingham and takes off for Sherwood Forest where he meets other "outlaws" hiding there. Since he was first seen by them wearing a cape with a hood, he is given the name Robin Hood. Just prior to watching this episode yesterday, I watched the pilot show of the Adventures of Sir Lancelot, a series made at about the same time. In every way, Robin Hood is superior - the actors, the productions values, the fight scenes, the sets, the music, the script. Not only children, but adults also can enjoy this show.
