Robin of Sherwood is definitely my all time favorite retelling of the adventures of Robin Hood and his merry men. I remember seeing the series as a kid in the 80s, and then appreciating it so much more, when I saw it again in the 90s. Now I have the VHS, and they show some series signs of wear and tear since I've watched them so much, LOL.
Here are the intros for all three seasons:
While I liked Michael Praed as Robin, Jason Connery is my favorite for the role. I like how this series made use of both legends about the true identity of the hooded man... i.e., the peasant Robin of Loxley (Michael Praed), and the nobleman Robert of Huntingdon (Jason Connery).
The series was shrouded in Pagan mysticism, and this is the only Robin Hood series thus far, that has done this, which has always been an added bonus in my book. I loved the concept of Herne the Hunter and Robin Hood being his chosen *son* to whom he provides guidance on numerous occasions.
The score by Clannad is fabulous too, and I think I've worn out my CD since I've listened to it so much.
Anyhow, who here has seen the series? Please discuss in this thread!

magicmuggle01: Thanks folks . I found two pennies in the street yesterday. I've passed them on to another person. Got to share the luck around and not try to hog it all to myself.
