Why are all the girls in the Baron's
red skirts made from the same material as
Robin's threadbare cloak?
FOUND IT IN A THRIFT STORE:
Could Drugo be wearing Captain DeLouche's
hand-me-downs? His silver shirt looks like the Popiel Ultimate Protection
Celestially Supported Armor with the sleeves cut off and DeLouche's golden
Here's a new special effect: Kemal-in-the-Box.
know when he'll pop up!
YOUR HEAD FOR SOMETHING OTHER THAN GROWING HAIR!:
With all the time that Kemal has been
spending with Robin lately, don't you think he'd have
sense enough not to get involved with a money-grubbing-ruthless-back-stabbing-slimeball
like Baron Royston?
SHE TAKE THE EXPRESS LANE?:
Royston is 2 days away, but it doesn't
seem that Gwynedd has been riding quite that long. And if tomorrow
is Friday that means you still have 2+ days to reach Royston, Rob, so quit
TEMPTATION OF ROBIN:
Gwynedd strips and kicks her habit,
and she and Robin lock eyes. You know she wants something to happen,
and he looks tempted for a moment, but he's too noble for that.
WITH A VIEW:
Nice of Baron Royston to give Bernadette
a room that overlooks the stocks where her true love, Ian, is imprisoned,
not to mention the gallows he's building just for her!
THOUGHT THAT LOOKED FAMILIAR:
Drugo and Kemal discover the wounded
soldier. The look in Kemal's eyes tells you that he recognizes the
arrow as one of Robin's. Now we have no doubt as to which side he's
IN A NAME:
Drugo: "New Man, you'll ride with
Doesn't Drugo even bother to learn his henchmen's
PLACE LIKE HOME:
Since when has Little John lived in
a house? First off there aren't supposed to be any permanent structures
in camp. I thought Little John lived in camp with everyone else,
but if Ingrid was living here alone, how did he know she tried to run away?
Nice to see they didn't try to burden
Ingrid with a heavy fake
hairpiece in this ep like they did in Robin
and the Golden Arrow.
GOT A BRAND NEW BAG:
Where did Gwynedd's leather satchel
come from? She wasn't carrying it when she left Royston, when Robin
rescued her from the soldiers, or when she and Robin left Mrs. Turnbull's.
All of a sudden she's got a satchel to throw at the soldier pursuing her.
HER COURAGE FLED:
Gwynedd is tough enough to escape the
Baron's castle with some of his money, find Robin Hood, ride hard through
the forest to get to Royston in time to save her sister from hanging.
But after Robin shoots a soldier for her, all of a sudden she's gone weak
and weepy and throws
herself at Robin. It's the Second Temptation
of Robin! This time he doesn't look tempted at all.
The man in the fuzzy hat hammers at
the gallows post. What is he hammering? He tugs on the rope,
as if testing that his hammering job will hold, but he wasn't hammering
SCENE OF THE EPISODE:
Actually it's probably one of the funniest
of the series. You know which one! "I know the Leperman's,
the Leperetti's, the Leperoski's, the Leprechauns." (Or considering
Barclay sounds like he came from the Lower East Side, maybe that's the
WAIT A MINUTE!...:
Robin throws off his disguise too soon,
the soldiers haven't had time to run away yet! Don't you think that
if they saw it wasn't a leper underneath that cloak that they should have
HOW DO WE GET HOME?:
I think it would have been funny to
include a short little shot of Barclay and the soldiers trying to hitch
a ride back to the castle after Robin hijack's their wagon.
Soldier: "Who's with her [Gwynedd]?"
Drugo: "A dead man." How many times are they going to repeat
this line? It's already been in The Birthday Trap.
How could simply throwing the black
powder crate make it blow up? If the box were on fire that would
do it, but without fire it shouldn't explode.
OF BURNING LOVE:
I'm impressed that the stunt crew actually
allowed Matthew to stand in the back of the wagon surrounded by fire.
Of course the fire was probably flame jets that could be turned off at
a moment's notice, so he wasn't ever in real danger.
If Gwynedd had kept the wagon on the
road, they wouldn't be in danger of going off a cliff. No one builds
a road so it deliberately goes off a cliff!
Funny thing, when Robin and Gwynedd
ride off to safety, the horses are free and separate from each other.
They should have been still harnessed to the driving harness that Robin
just unhitched from the wagon.
A TRAIN LEFT ALBUQUERQUE...:
There is a BIG time discrepancy here.
Ingrid escapes from the house on Sunday morning, is picked up by Drugo,
and arrives at Royston before Robin and the others. How did she manage
Royston is still 2 days away?! Not to
mention, if she's been locked up since Thursday, why did she wait til Sunday
morning to escape?
When the Outlaws ride through the fog
Kemal and Gwynedd are not with them. That's because this is the start
of a sequence of all the faceless stock riding footage the film editors
could get their hands on.
Robin: "Steep? Yes. Treacherous?
Maybe." Would someone tell me what in the heck is that supposed to
mean? This line was reeeeaaaaally unnecessary.
THE FLIP SIDE:
This is really bad climbing footage,
that includes a shot from Devil's Bride, reversed so it looks like a new
shot taken from the opposite angle.
DOWN, AND GET BACK UP AGAIN:
They show Robin crawling along the wooden
platform before they actually show him swinging
up onto it.
The weather must have turned chilly
noses look pink from cold in these scenes.
YOU LIKE A BLINDFOLD? HOW ABOUT HALF OF ONE?:
What a stupid blindfold they put on
Bernadette; she can see right through it! I know
that's supposed to be her wedding veil, but
it's still stupid looking.
Is it just me, or does the hangman look
like Matthew in disguise??? He's tall enough, and he's swathed in
robes and a mask. Robin is still supposed to be up on the wall, so
he's not in this scene on the ground.
Everything is calm when the trapdoor
is dropped from beneath Bernadette. Robin fires the arrow to sever
the noose, she falls below the scaffold, and all of a sudden there is a
full scale battle going on around her!
Right after Robin's call for freedom,
you see Kemal kick a
soldier. He grabs for the soldier's
sword,... AND HE MISSES IT!
I always forget this is in here.
Robin does a neat
midair somersault off the scaffold!
Little John declares that the Baron's
money will be divvied equally amongst the people, and people begin to cheer.
So Gwynedd really didn't need to ask if they heard him, they had or they
wouldn't have cheered in the first place.
NEVER LIKED THAT SWORD ANYWAYS:
Why does Robin always drop his sword
and leave it behind after a fight? You'd think he'd want to keep
his sword and take it with him.
Bernadette and Ian want to wait 2 weeks
before they get
married? I would think they'd waited
long enough already.
HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND
Little John says Royston wasn't ready
for Ingrid or her new friends. What new friends? She was only
there long enough for the hanging and the battle that followed. What
is he talking about?
I like the interaction between Little
John and Ingrid. We know about Tuck's, Marion's, and Robin's pasts,
but so far not much about Little John, except the fact that he's got a
big family. But would someone tell me what "Buss Britches" is supposed
