Robin 'Lends' From The Lenders
28 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The legend of Robin Hood begins to grow with this episode which shows Robin teaching the "outlaws" of Sherwood Forest the right thing to do: return to good people money that rightfully belongs to them One afternoon shortly after joining Wil Scarlet and his men of Sherwood Forest, Robin comes across a moneylender (the modern age would call this kind of a guy a "loan shark) . Robin discovers the man demands twice back what he lends people. He works for the evil Sheriff of Nottingham, of course.

Anyway, Robin makes sure the people who got screwed get their money back. Thus, we have the beginnings of Robin Hood being a hero to the common man.

This starts off a war, of sorts, with lots of action as the sheriff's men go into Sherwood to get back "their" money. In the process of the battle, the boys lose their leader, "Will Scarlet," who, with his dying breath. tells the men to now follow Robin Hood.

The episode was extremely interesting and fast-moving and is encouraging that many of the future episodes will be as well. It had a good mix of action, drama and even some humor. Alan Wheatley does an effective job as playing the bad-guy sheriff. Man, you just want to slap that sucker! Meanwhile, Richard Greene plays a likable and classy Robin.
