As someone who watched EVERY episode of that terrible, terrible WB Tarzan, I do not say this lightly: Robin Hood may well be the worst show I have ever seen. GET IT OUT OF MY HEAD. GET IT OUT.

I was, however, entertained by the dancing Saracen assassin girls. You certainly don't see that in every Robin Hood story.

And that episode would be where I gave up. Finally, truly, once and for all. *weeps*

Man...the show is so bloody dumb and conflicted. Of course, they don't want to say that Muslims are evil but they won't say that the Crusades were the dumbest idea ever (no idea why - it would make their writing easier AND would be true). So they end up with Dancing Saracen Assassin Girls and the Noble Ambassador with his acupuncture. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON. THERE WAS AN EFFORT TO MAKE PEACE BUT SALADIN WAS EVIL? Or something.

ETA: No idea why I keep editing this comment. Apologies.

That plot made no sense! Saladin's...cousin? Or something? Is randomly fucking about in England trying to make peace behind Saladin's back? (Which would totally work, of course, because Richard and Philip were so going to listen to...the Sheriff of...oh god, my head hurts.)

Yeah, I dunno why they wouldn't just go with "the Crusades were a bad plan." It'd even enhance their Iraq War metaphor, wouldn't it?

Yes. Though it does get slightly less bad at some points during season two. Or I'd developed a tolerance. One of those things.

I gave up because Robin was so fugly AND because half of the cast are running around in hoodies.
