  1. Haha, this one!
    ''Oh, he is the help, Much.'' :) It wasn't my top favourite, but it was a nice one. But Guy in that armor though, he looked just like a robot. Very awkward. It must have been very scary for Robin, no weapons at all(he has weapons, but he can't use them). Then he figured out, fire is the fighting method.
    ''Oh no.''
    ''Oh yes!'' Robin could thank Marian again, because she actually saved his life. Marian likes children a lot and she is good with them. I think that if she had a child, she would be a wonderful mother. But then, Allan tells Guy that they put the stuff(how do you call it in English?) in the box to destroy it and the whole plan fails, which could have killed Robin. Stupid, Allan, stupid.

    1. This one isn't one of my favorites, but it is a nice one! Guy was sort of funny looking to us, but I agree with you, he must have been pretty scary to Robin. Coming after him and Robin couldn't use weapons!
      Guy and Robin should have thanked Marian more, she saved both their lives!! She really is very good with children! SHe would have made a wonderful mother!!!! Allan, why do you have to betray them!!! (Pitch)
      Thanks for your comment, Ruth!!!

  2. The episode where Guy wears that ugly iron armor that some one has created.

    Those boys cause a lot of trouble. That is my opinion though. First, they look at Guy testing the armor and kill some one. They make noise and Guy comes after them, one of the boys escapes and Robin finds him and he tells him about his friends.
    You know how the story goes. :)

    The red outfit of Marian is very lovely.

    The scene where Robin and Guy fight, Robin with only a sword and Guy in a full armor, that is very funny. Robin almost lost, but he puts a arrow in fire and fires it off on Guy. His whole armor gets in fire and he falls into a ton of water. Robin, who is angry, it seems like that, gives the sheriff a deal, what the sheriff doesn't accept. So Robin tries to kill Guy, but eventually Marian saves Guy, leaving the sheriff no chose. Sheriff gives those stones, where you can make that armor off, to Robin and Guy is saved. Later on, Guy thanks Marian.

    This is one of my favorite episodes. It is fun, and lovely at the same time. :)

    1. That armor is supposed to be light weight, but it looks very uncomfortable!!

      They do! I guess that through them is how Robin and the gang get to know about the armor, but those boys still cause a lot of trouble! :)

      It is one of my favorites!!

      It is! Guy and Robin never seem to miss a chance to fight, and this one seemed to be unfair, but Robin did come out on top in the end!! But, he did almost drown Guy, I am very surprised that the Sheriff didn't save him, Marian did! But, she also saved Robin at the same time.

      It is a fun episode!!

      Thank you so much for commenting!!!
