Weekly Mini Review: The Adventures of Robin Hood (1955-1960)


Story: A TV show about Robin Hood and his men of Sherwood.

Review: This is a great show for a number of reasons. Firstly, it has a lot of obscure, yet interesting, historical information in it like archaic laws and holidays. Secondly, despite the frequent reuse of actors, the acting is quite good (except the replacement Maid Marian. She’s an annoying wuss). Thirdly, the writing is witty and often unpredictable. Definitely give this show a watch – notice I embedded the pilot above this review so you can watch right now! Do it!

Recommended for: Anyone not expecting angst or tripey melodrama from a 1950s kids’ show.
