I loved this series and its character but I suggest to anyone who starts to watch this to stop at the end of the second season. Heartbreaking as it is, you really don't want to ruin the series by watching the third series. I thought it was rubbish because they made the characters do uncharacteristic things and the new ones they introduced were just annoying. Still, the first seasons were definitely great!

I really do love this show and its casting (yes, even Jonas Armstrong who makes a good RObin Hood, in my opinion. Lucy Griffiths as Marian is refreshing as hell and Richard Armitage as Guy of Gisborne was GREAT casting. The chemistry between all them makes the show which is great because the supporting cast is sadly mistreated and misused. Apart from season 1 which had nice character moments for the supporting cast, this all disappears in season 2 and all these characters feel incredibly sidelined. Let's not talk about season 3 because that's upsetting on its own (and by upsetting, I mean it was a chore to get through the last four episodes). However, despite the poor treatment of the secondary characters and the terrible season 3 in many regards, this is such an enjoyable rendition of Robin Hood which I'll always look back on fondly. As soon as I forget season 3.... but that will probably never happen.

Rarely does a show have this much heart. It's a classic I'll never forget.
