  1. I didn't like Alice. (Really, that's the first thing that comes into my mind?) And I didn't really like John in this episode(I actually don't like him in any episode, except for a few). This was were Allan and Robin threw money all over the place. The faces they make ;) Overall score 9!! Episode 11 ran away with the prize (for now)!
    'I will not give up on anyone.'
    'You might discover it is too late for some.' I think Robin believed Marian was talking about herself, and she only realized it later and tried to make it clear that she was talking about the prisoners, not about herself. (But I think that she WAS talking about herself, at least for a part)
    Well, got to go! It's great to bring up memories to Robin Hood BBC again!

    1. I know, she wasn't really that nice. I didn't really like her either. And, Little John isn't one of my favorite characters either. I had forgotten about that until I watched it this time! They are so fun!
      Yes, it is because there isn't as much fighting as there is in other episodes, but this isn't really one of my favorite episodes except the part where Marian is talking to Robin. Yes, now that you metion that I do think she was talking about herself.
      Yes! Thank you so much for talking it over with me! I love your imput!!

  2. I don't like Alice. She isn't really nice and quite annoying. Nor did I liked John in this episode. How can he be so stupid to be captured. I know he was trying to save his son, but just wait and go to Robin. I would do that. The festival of pain was quite awful. Of course they wouldn't do it real, Robin saved them just on time. It was really hilarious to see the sherrif on that wheel. :D
    I loved the part where Robin and Allan threw money all over the ground. Those faces. :)

    It was good to bring back those memories of Robin Hood bbc. I am not a big fan, but I love all of the series.

    1. Me too. I think she could have been kinder! John wasn't thinking! If John and Robin had attacked, they would have had a better chance, instead of John knocking Robin out.
      I am really glad that Robin stopped it! :D
      It was really good of them! And Robin loves to do things in style! :)

      It is so fun to share them with you! I love being able to talk about this series!
