This all-action Robin Hood is jam-packed with colorful characters, gripping stories and outrageous scams as well as breathtaking archery and incredible swordplay.

Robin of Locksley heads home from the Crusades to find his people starving and brutalized under the tyrannical rule of the new Sheriff. Robin quickly discovers that the only way to reason with this Sheriff is with bow and arrow - even if it means sacrificing his title and his lands and consigning himself to life in the forest.

Along with trusty companion Much, trickster Allan A Dale and passionate Will Scarlett, Robin teams up with forest outlaws Little John and Roy, leading his gang to help Nottingham's poor. His ally in Nottingham is Marian, the sweetheart he left behind when he for the Crusades.

As the series progresses and the gang fights on, how long can Marian keep amorous Gisborne at bay, will the Sheriff succeed in cornering Robin Hood, and what will Robin make of the sinister truth behind Gisborne and the Sheriff's secret plotting? The state of England is rotten and Robin and the gang will learn that doing good deeds in Nottingham is a dangerous business indeed...

This four disc collection includes all 13 episodes from Season One of Robin Hood!

"...Armstrong makes a likeable Robin...Kennedy is excellent as Little John...This version of Robin Hood is quite a fun ride...  Jeff Swindoll, Monsters and Critics
"...refreshing and quite fun to watch a live-action Robin Hood that [has]...plenty of humor and quite a bit of anachronisms...  Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures

Editor's Note
The BBC brings ROBIN HOOD into the 21st century with this adaptation of his adventures, which first reached American audiences in March 2007. Newcomer Jonas Armstrong takes the lead role, and the show starts with Robin returning to Britain after fighting in the Holy Wars. But being back on familiar territory makes Robin acutely aware of the problems facing his native country, and he rounds up a band of "Merry Men" to tackle the Sheriff of Nottingham (Keith Allen) and his evil ways. The complete first season of episodes from the show is collected here.

Professional Reviews

Variety 7 of 10
In many respects, the BBC's "Robin Hood" feels like a throwback to the classic Disney adventures of the 1950s, where Zorro or the Swamp Fox would battle the same assortment of ruthless but semi-inept villains week after week, while the music worked extra hard to obscure the relatively chintzy budgets and action sequences...While no Errol Flynn, Armstrong does play Robin as a ladies man with a roguish smile, bantering with Marian (Lucy Griffiths), who seeks to assist him from within the Sheriff's domain. Still, the effort to create a slightly hip, next-gen bow-slinger never quite coalesces, perhaps because the tone is so uneven. As a case in point, Robin and the Sheriff engage in several snippy exchanges during the initial batch of episodes, but the Sheriff awkwardly oscillates between being a campy Snidely Whiplash and genuinely evil, making you wonder why Robin doesn't put an arrow through his forehead when given the chance...If nothing else, this latest schlep back through Sherwood Forest delivers another reminder that while there are several things the Brits do particularly well in TV -- most notably costume dramas, acerbic comedy and the occasional crime thriller -- action, as a rule, isn't one of them. All of which might explain why "Robin Hood" ends up being a bit off-target. - Brian Lowry
