Robin Hood BBC: Season 1, Episode 5: "The Turk 'Flu" (2006):
Based on the legends of Robin Hood:
"Never forget the outlaws!"
The Sheriff and Guy are making people work in mines, mining for iron. The conditions are terrible and the people are protesting. The Sheriff solves this by buying slaves to work for him. Meanwhile, The Sheriff is hoping to snag Robin Hood with an archery competition.
"No, this is clever."
Genre: Action, Adventure, Period Drama, Romance.
Costumes: 8, they are pretty good, but there are people in underclothes, and there is someone who isn't wearing a shirt, but we never actually see.
Script: 6, there is some swearing.
"'Ouch" costs nothing, surely you could utter an 'ouch'!"
