|Riding Through The Glen- Again

The Michael Praed Robin Hood looks a bit silly now, but it rode a zeitgeisty little wave. Neo-Paganism and all that shit. And it had pretty music by Clannad.|
It's probably too early to pronounce on the latest version, but the first episode didn't exactly grab me. It seems a bit Prince of Theivesy to me- and that's not good. All that superheroic archery- firing two arrows at once- hitting impossible marks. And a Sherrif of Nottingham who's a bit like Alan Rickman only less so. I could feel my enthusiasm draining away.
And this Robin looks puckishly cute- a bit of a wide-boy, a bit of a geezer- but he can't fuckin act- so what's the point of him? You'd have thought they'd have learned from the example of Jason Connery that a pretty face is not enough.
But I liked the sets.
