Thank you so much for participating in this watch-along! What do YOU think about this episode? I would love to talk about it!



  1. ''Get Carter!'' was one of my favourites, maybe even THE favourite. It was really funny when Robin fake-died and then suddenly was alive in front of the sherrif's eyes. But Marian was in danger, because Guy wanted to go after her. Allan helped her, congratulations for a good deed! And Allan calling Guy ''Gis''.
    'Get my horse.'
    'I'm not a footman.'
    'Get my horse!'
    'Alright, alright.' :) Allan is really the funniest guy in the whole show.

    1. It is a pretty good episode!! And Carter is telling the Sheriff all about this potion and he is just saying, "Yes, yes." He doesn't realize that they have used that potion. And then Marian saved Robin's life! Allan isn't "all bad." ;) "I'm not being funny..." Allan is the funniest on the show!!!

      Thanks for talking with me, Ruth!

  2. This episode is also one of my favorites! Love this one!

    Here we meet Carter, who is assigned to kill Robin. Of course Robin talks to Carter and he helps the gang instead of the sheriff. You go Carter, you go!

    The scene where Robin died, which is fake, as we all know, is very funny. It made the sheriff happy and he couldn't believe it was Robin, but after looking close, he believed it. And then Marian came in danger, oh no, and Guy needed to go after her.
    Who helped her? Allan! You go Allan, you go! (I keep saying that) HAHAHA, it was quite funny when Allan called Guy 'Gis'. :D
    Allan sure is funny. He is one of my favorite characters in the show and I think he is the funniest and kindest, however he betrayed the gang, but he wanted to go back and helped them a lot, after they put him out of their gang. Poor Allan.

    1. This one is a good one!

      Carter was confused about Robin, but once he got to know him they got to be pretty good friends!

      Hilarious! It was so close, Robin almost got his head cut off, but Marian saved him by distractin Guy.
      Allan!!! (I like it!) Allan, why did you have to go with 'Gis'? You are so funny, you shouldn't be on the villian side!! He is one of my favorites too!! They wouldn't let him back at first, but they will! :D

      Thanks for chatting, Rachel! :D
