Robin Hood Was No Dummy!
21 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

In this episode, Robin Hood tries to save a good man from the gallows. The about-to-be-executed's crime? He didn't pay his taxes.

To make it worse, the man simply didn't have the money. It was a lean year for crops. He has a wife and two kids. He's a nice man, too! (Boy, they make this manipulative.) It's interesting to see how news travels from Nottingham to the middle of the Shewood Forest. Let's just say they didn't have postal service the way we know it.

Anyway, when Robin gets the message, despite warnings from his group, he think it is best to go alone and try to free the captive. It doesn't always go100 percent smooth, of course, although our hero, once again, shows his brains were better than anyone else of his day, not his brawn and talent. He's a smart guy.
