The Adventures Of Robin Hood The Complete Series (1955 59/British/Mill Creek Entertainment)


Picture: C Sound: C Extras: D Episodes: B-



NOTE: Mill Creek has also made all four separate seasons available in their own sets.



Now joining only a few of the hit TV shows of the 1950s to be totally available on DVD, The Adventures Of Robin Hood is a rare look at all the great talent British TV even had to offer then like no other. You can read more about the series from our coverage of the First Season at this link:





The 1.33 X 1 black and white image and Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono sound throughout all four seasons is about the same. Sound can show its age, the source material Mill Creek had to work with was not always optimal and someone should fix up the show for future generations on film and for Blu-ray. Playback can be uneven, but it is as good as you are going to see for w while.


This Richard Greene version is more serious and mature versus later series, yet also has the problem of people sometimes seeming to talk at each other instead of to each other. However, many might still find that refreshing versus the kind of childish, jokey moments genre shows have today.


Fans will find it a must-see either way.
