This is one of the best versions of "Robin Hood" I have ever seen and I would love to have it on DVD. It is a complete story as a mini-series, instead of on-going escapades that must always leave the full cast in place at the end of each episode. This is not the cheeriest version of the story but it is indeed one of the most accurate to traditional legends.
The merry men are remarkably well-cast. The villains are believable -- not strictly evil, but power hungry. David Dixon really shines as Prince John, as a weak-willed young man easily led into the plans of stronger men. I really look forward to seeing this one come out again.
