Jamie Campbell Bower,
I am catching up with the first series DVD box and am thoroughly enjoying every minute! Yes it does have the odd historical inaccuracy (as does 'Downton' with its use of the phrase 'big girl's blouse'!) and it reminds me of the BBC TV version of Robin Hood or Merlin for that matter. It tells a story - often with a moral - and tells it excitingly and colourfully. I am glad I bought the box. It is carrying me through the dark winter evenings and the cast - especially the leads - are very pleasant to watch! Their relationships and interplay are successfully portrayed and the effects are well done (for an understandably limited budget) and do not detract from the action - as they almost invariably do in movie blockbusters. For a family audience this is beautifully executed. Well done HBO - another success!
