Robin Hood, the classic tale of a thief who opposed the nobles. I questioned how it would have fared out in a television format, but the first episode delivered. It started out a bit shaky; that scene with Robin battling the cloth maker because he was making out with his daughter really felt like it was floating around. Didn't serve a purpose later on in the episode. It probably will later on in the show, but not here in the first episode. And the daughter, full blown with make-up, didn't feel like a great portrayal of a medieval times woman.
When he reached Nottingham, the events felt at first forced and a bit too dramatic. Though as it went on and the events started to involve politics and the Sheriff, things were kicking into gear. Did a great job of introducing the setting and characters that are going to play a prominent role in this television series.
