Also, the father of the family is a scholar of the Kaballah, and he says lots of great things about how only a true scholar can understand its wisdom, which requires years of study. Are you listening, MADONNA? Perhaps she should take heed of the end of the story, when the sheriff looks at the sacred text despite being warned by the old scholar and IS DRIVEN MAD (temporarily).
So in conclusion: Robin of Sherwood - it's not all cheese! Well, except for the Sheriff's mad scene. That was pretty ridiculous. Entertaining, though. Lots of eye-rolling and scenery-chewing.
Now to watch more! And to ring Patsington and plaintively ask him to pick up some Chinese takeaway on the way home. Feed a cold and starve a fever, and all that.
