HAVE SUNK TO AN ALL TIME LOW:
Ladies Mud Wrestling becomes Mud Orgy
when the referee gets involved. We really didn't need to go there.
The Comedian really deserves several
Groaner Fouls for his lousy jokes. The penalty is he has to apologize
to the audience.
Robin is disguised as a waiter.
Wait a minute, that's not a disguise, that's his day job. And Little
John is dressed as a Puritan? Considering he gets all the women in
this season, I think that's a little odd.
I looooooove Martyn as Derek Clapton.
He must have had so much fun doing it. However I do not envy the
entire can of Industrial Strength Aqua Net hairspray they must have used
to get his hair to stick up like that.
Robin does a nifty knife twirl and runs
away. Hey wait a minute, come back! I wanna see how nice you
look in those tight black pants. That's probably why he's running;
he wants to get out of them as quickly as possible!
GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY:
It looks like tryouts for Outstanding
Bad Guy: 3 men, only one can be the worst.
Robin wrings a promise out of Marion
to rescue Friar Tuck no matter what happens. If Robin looked
at me like that just once I'd promise him the Moon, the Stars, and Gaia's
Simon-- "Your public loves you;
give 'em a wave!" Forget the wave, give them your phone number!
Fawkes' weapon looks like the first
semi automatic crossbow.
Simon's Bimbo-to-be-named-later should
be tied down. Her head is so full of helium she just might float
away if he's not careful.
Not only does the tree climbing look
really bad, but the tree jumping is absolutely ludicrous. The jumping
does bring up the interesting possibility that Robin Hood is a tree frog
related to our own Amphibian Queen, Froggie!!!! Whaddya say, Froggie?
Marion complains about the smallness
of her dress. That dress isn't nearly as confining as the corset
you wear on a daily basis, Girlie.
A NICE TRIP:
Robin almost walks into the trip wire:
look at his left eye (not our left, his.) Looks like Matthew had
another accident, because he's got a little bruise inside his eye.
OF DIAMONDS BE NIMBLE:
WOW! 2 backflips and an over-the-other-guy
flip. Robin is looking in mighty fine shape this episode! But
it takes a stuntguy with no eyebrows to fall against a styrofoam boulder.
THE GETTING¹S GOOD:
Robin (to Sir Henry)-- "Come and get
it!" Honey just tell me when and where, and I'll be there!
WAY DID HE GO?:
The Spotters must have maps to know
where to find Robin. Why don't Fawkes and Eka grab one of them, or
just follow the Spotters?
Tuck's last meal is a bowl of mushy
peas? How depressing.
ON THE EDGE:
Eka and Fawkes knock Robin off his tree
branch and over the cliff, but I never saw Robin actually grab the Queen
of Diamonds, did you?
TO YOUR ROOTS:
Robin is all out on his own stunts this
episode we see him as he clings to the tree roots and pulls himself up.
There was probably a safety wire hidden among those roots though.
The spotter declares Robin is dead,
yet no one has verified the kill yet as proof.
Robin-- "I'm still in one piece!"
I don't think that was in the script, I think it's genuine amazement on
the actor's part! LOL The man in the water looks like Matthew, but
is it? Matt would be smart enough to push his wet hair out of his
face, so it has to be a stuntguy in a wig.
Robin has removed his wet tunic, but
don't you think he'd remove his wet glove and gauntlets too? And
his boots, and his pants? Go on, take it all off, I won't look, I
swear (fingers crossed.)
AT THE READY?:
WOOOOP WOOOOP WOOOOOP!!!!!
BATTLESTATIONS! It's the Arrowmaking 101 scene! Gratuitous
semi nudity. Firelight glistening on those rippling muscles, hair
loose, unkempt, and wild. He looks like he belongs on the cover of
a romance novel.
Why was Fawkes the only person sleeping
in that tent? You'd think that Simon, his Bimbo-to-be-named-later,
and Master Eka would be sleeping in there as well. If it was Fawkes'
personal property, Simon would have taken it for part of Fawkes' debt.
The man who brings Robin's note to Simon
was Rast in Ultimate Army. Has he switched sides now and gone to
work for Simon? Maybe this is just his summer job.
DRAGGING YOUR FEET:
I didn't realize that the clay they
encased Tuck's feet in was also fired and glazed. Regular green clay
would still be very fragile unless it was fired.
Here comes Eka, Master of Death, armed
to the teeth against an "unarmed" man. Now that's not fair, is it?
Last fight scene of the episode
Robin stabs Eka in the gauntlet, where there's enough padding so no one
actually gets hurt. Eka hits Robin in the chin, and a dust cloud
flies. Guess Robin needs another bath. Robin had an opportunity
to grab a throwing spike from the tree trunk, but decided not to.
AT SHERWOOD CORRAL:
Eka faces Robin with his spear, and
Robin faces Eka with his bow, arrow nocked to the string. I wouldn't
want to be on the receiving end of that murderous glare Robin is giving
There is a blonde woman who keeps showing
up on camera in this episode. She was in the crowd when the rules
of the hunt were announced, she witnessed Robin sneaking into Fawkes' tent
and shared a wink with him. Now she is rather conspicuous in the
scene of Robin's return in triumph. Who is she??
Robin and Marion get to hug?? Guess
they had to throw us romantic fans a bone
before we got fed up.
The Outlaws emerge from the castle,
and Robin's face is suddenly clean. He must have taken a moment to
wash off all the dirt that had been airbrushed on during the hunt.
This has to be one of my favorite episodes.
Nothing like an hour-long chase scene to get your blood pumping!
