  • i found this to be another snooze of an episode i'm afraid

    6.5
    yup, this one was really snoozy. i thought i was going to like robin hood. i started watching it this season and have watched all episodes of season three. at first i thought i'd found a new show to watch but now i find that it is getting repetitive already. the whole kate being not a fan and finding fault with all that robin et co do is getting old. the tale of rufus and his son was pretty dull. i mean, the big twist at the end was just not that interesting, and i didn't feel drawn into the son's struggle for identity. the fighting seemed silly. e.g., there was an instance where robin pulled a bow on someone indoors at really close range, in a way that wouldn't really allow for the arrow to fly anywhere if he did shoot it, seemed really dumb. And then the scene at the end where robin lets the arrow go way into the sky and then it comes back down - - - ho hum . really sillymoreless
