We Are Robin Hood…

The other night the fam and I watched disc one of the BBC’s Robin Hood: Season Two. Overall I think I’m actually enjoying this season more than the first. The show has always been a bit “Indiana Jones”-ish in that it’s more about the adventure and fun than anything terribly serious or weighty. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that in my opinion.

I liked the introduction of the Sheriff’s sister in the first episode, “Sisterhood,” but I wish they would have kept her in the story for more than one episode. It was nice to have a villainess for a change.

The casino in “Booty and the Beast” at first made me have flashbacks to the horrible “ninja” episode from season one. What were the producers thinking with that episode? “Booty” didn’t turn out to be that bad, though, and I was thrilled that it introduced a character similar to the Scarlet Pimpernel, one of my other favorite stories. Hopefully he’ll turn up for some more fun sometime in the future. I also enjoyed the whole “breaking into the vault” subplot with Robin and his band. It was a nice little quest for them. What fun.

“Childhood” was a good episode, though not quite as memorable as the first two, in my opinion. The kids were cute and did a good job.

So now we just have to wait for disc two to come in the mail from Netflix. Too bad I’m poor right now. I wish I could just go out and buy the set, like I did with Season One…
