The RT review of the new series of Robin Hood:
Hurray - Robin's back! And he's got a ringing new catchphrase, the shamelessly playground-esque "My gang! This way!" He's also looking a little more butch and has at last figured out how to make arrows fly around corners, which makes freeing damsels tied to stakes so much easier, I find. Early signs are that this rollicking kids' drama has lost none of its rollicks. Provided you're content to be swept along by the action (and that gallopy theme tune), most adults should be happy to swallow their reservations about the jinking plots and historical howlers. I swear, before the series is done, Robin will get himself out of trouble by producing a 3G mobile phone from his hoodie. But that'll be fine, as long as the wonderful Keith Allen is on hand as the Sheriff of Nottingham to roar, "I want him DEAD!" in the general direction of his rubbish soldiers. This week, the Sheriff's lissom sister turns up, a whip-wielding, leather-clad ally in the fight for injustice. But look out, Robin: she has her own stock of latex fake skin!

Oh, and the theme tune still reminds me of the Fellowship theme from LotR:FotR...
