Robin of Sherwood is a 1980’s British series starring Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley, Ray Winstone as Will Scarlet, and Nickolas Grace as the Sheriff of Nottingham. The series is very dated, from Praed’s shag haircut to the synthesizer background music. But the Irish band Clannad’s frequent contributions are fantastic. The 2-part pilot episode introduces the audience to Robin and his merry men, with a fairly traditional telling of the legend. This series combines the popular tale of Robin Hood with magic, myth, and plenty of swashbuckling action.
On June 7, 2011, all 13 episodes from seasons 1 and 2 of the series will be released on Blu-ray for the first time. There are over 8 hours of special features including: commentaries, featurettes, behind-the-scenes documentary, outtakes, photo galleries, a 40-page booklet, and scripts from the show.
