Based on the Robin Hood legends:
"This is our forest too, I think you'll find."
In this episode, Robin of Locksley gets his new nickname, "Robin Hood", and he becomes and outlaw, "And not a very impressive one."
In Locksley, Vaisey can't find Robin so he goes into desperate measures, someone better talk soon.
"I was not planning to come to the forest."

Genre: Action, Adventure, Period Drama.
Costumes: 7, once again, I'm not sure that all of them fit into the time frame. And in a few parts some people are sort of in their underclothes.

  1. Pretty sure I saw this one too. The Sheriff is all kinds of crazy in a way that makes me laugh aloud a lot.
