This show is absolutely terrible, and a great deal of fun. Historical accuracy is a long ways off from the point (there's an episode where Marian befriends an alien who crash-landed in a ufo in Sherwood forest. Do I need to elaborate?), but as entertainment, it's very enjoyable. It's dated, the editing is appallingly bad, and shows from the mid-90s in general don't tend to hold up long-term content-wise. But many Robin Hood adaptations take the content entirely too seriously, and rather suck the fun out of the concept. This one doesn't have that problem. It's very much a "giggle at the terrible editing, godawful effects, grab-bag accents, and genuinely goofy costuming" kind of show, but silliness suits it, it's genuinely enjoyable in a non-serious way, and it's worth a watch. Just don't expect it to be Game of Thrones: this more has the vibe of something you might have watched on snow days when you were a kid.
