Thank you so much for reading! What do you think of this episode?



  1. Such a lovely wrap up from Robin Hood bbc season 1.
    I loved reading all your reviews of all the episodes of season 1. Looking forward to see you reviewing season 2. :)

    1. Thank you so much, Rachel! It has been so fun, I can't wait for more! I'm looking forward to discussing more episodes with you! :)

  2. I can't believe season 1 is already over! It goes so quickly, doesn't it?
    Well, there was a bit on every episode that I liked, but my two least favourites were: Episode 11 and 8
    Two favourites were: One(obviously), five also, and seven and thirteen. I guess I'll change the ''two favourite episodes'' into ''four favourite episodes'' then ;)

    1. It does go so quickly! It seems like I just started!
      Yes, there is a bit I like and I bit I don't like in every episode, but some more than others. 11 is so strange.
      Seven I really liked too, but I was a little sad. Wow, four favorite episodes! :D


    1. It is so good! I am very picky about Robin Hood versions, and this is one that is at the top!
