I hope this show lasts awhile. Most of our American shows just aren't worth watching. If those of you across the big pond think Robin Hood is average, you'd be quite disappointed to have to bear the burden of having to choose from so many horrific american programs. There is also a different sensibility I think, as many of you rant and rave Doctor Who and Torchwood....I just don't get it, I've tried several times to like both shows but in a world of Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas DVD's being reissued every few months these shows seem far below par. At least Robin Hood lets some emotion show beyond the robotic efforts of the other two shows I mentioned. Robin Hood is and always was a work of fiction, so we shouldn't expect it to be too realistic. Kudos to BBC for renewing this show, I'll look forward to watching it should BBCAmerica decide to run it's second season here.
