Robin Hood is the new version of the series on BBC. It started successfully last year and is currently in its second season. Jonas Armstrong stars as Lord Robin of Locksley.
The first season was quite entertaining, especially since I was a fan of the series that ran on the BBC in 1980s. I remember that the 1980s series had a mystical element to it. The new series is really good. It’s a welcome change from some of the more dreary TV shows on American television networks.
Robin finally finds out who the traitor is in his band. He isn’t happy about finding this out. It takes a lot to find out. His band is shocked as well. There is a lot of mistrust and no one knows who to believe anymore.
I think that Robin Hood is an excellent series, full of strong actors. I recommend it and enjoy watching. The best way is actually to watch them one after the other. Some series are better that way.
Warning: Spoilers ahead.
