  • I am not a huge Robin Hood buff, although I have enjoyed a Robin Hood movie or two in my times
  • It looked decent enough, and I do like Robin Hood, so I decided to pick it up
  • The early episodes mostly cover familiar ground, the standard fare from most Robin Hood movies (Hood returning home from the Crusades, meeting Little John and so on, etc)., but after that things get a bit more interesting

There is very much a Cold War mentality of espionage and subterfuge going on in a lot of the episodes, making the proceedings a bit more interesting. All in all not a bad show, especially for the almost unbelievable price.
