Storyline

Returning from five years of fighting in the crusades, Robin of Locksley and his manservant Much discover their beloved home under the rule of the dastardly Sheriff of Nottingham. To fight the tyranny, Robin becomes the leader of a band of outlaws with Will Scarlett, Allan A Dale, Royston White, Little John, and Djaq. Meanwhile, feisty Lady Marian inspires the love of both her childhood sweetheart Robin and the Sheriff's second-in-command Sir Guy of Gisborne. Later episodes find the addition of friends and foes such as Prince John, warrior monk Tuck, village girl Kate, Guy's sister Isabella, and mysterious Archer. Written by L. Hamre

Trivia

The opening eye from the beginning credits is Jonas Armstrong, but the colour was later digitally changed from brown to green. See more »

Goofs

Robin's bow was actually a longbow, not a recurved bow. A longbow is, of course, long (about as long as the person using it) and is virtually straight. Also, the legendary Robin never used the Saracen sword; the movement for a longsword is completely different, meaning he actually wouldn't have been able to. See more »

Saturday night fun
6 December 2006 | by bobblaineySee all my reviews

This is perfect Saturday night viewing. Don't expect complicated plots and subtext. It is pure entertainment. Goodies wear white (or green in this case) and the baddies wear black. It is as simple as that. The costumes are a bit modern the dialogue also is more in the present day.

But the best bit that makes it worth watching is Kieth Allens Sheriff of Nottingham. He is pure am dram evil. An amoral creature who would turn over his own mother. the supporting cast are great and Jonas Armstrong puts in a great cocky performance for an unknown actor.

The back ground characters are a bit week but this is probably more due to the fact there grasp of English is limited as the series is filmed in Hungary
