Does anyone know if the BBC's _Robin Hood_ that Elizabeth recently referred to
is a series or a stand-alone movie? I know there's a Robin Hood series showing
on PBS in the States; are they the same thing?
As long as we're on the subject, I have a few friends who liked a version
shown on Fox TV in the US a few years ago. They prized it for the historical
accuracy, coming as it did on the heels of Kevin Costner's film. I have to
admit, some of the ideas in it (like giving the Normans relatively modern
French accents to distinguish them from the Saxons/English/good side) were
interesting choices. Unfortunately, my personal opinion is that this movie was
one of the best cures for insomnia I've ever seen. Lots of period atmosphere;
no rising dramatic action whatsoever. But if you're interested in film
versions of Robin Hood, it's on video for you to make your own choice.
