Sorry, these were the only spoiler-free pictures I could find. Sorry that this isn't the best review, "Life's full of disappointment.", but I was trying!

I know I am here to talk about Robin Hood BBC, but my mom came home from a trip and she got me Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)!! I'm so excited about seeing it!!!

Please tell me what you think of this episode!



  1. You're right! It's a good episode, but some things aren't that nice. And Thornton is so...blegh! Isabella is right to be scared for him! I actually felt sorry for her this episode, but she ruined it herself by trying to let Guy and Meg killed.

    1. Yes, it was good that we met Meg (she is one of my favorite characters) but then she died. Why!!?? It makes me so sad! Yes, Thornton is so creepy! Yes, and Robin helped her but then she betrayed him Come on, Isabella! You could be a little grateful! Then her revenge absolutely ruined her.

      Thanks for commenting, Ruth!

  2. This sure is a good episode, but some things. No, those are not nice. :)

    Yess, we meet Meg. She's a sweetheart. Why must she die, she and Guy would be so happy together. Ugh, I hate you Isabella, you're cruel and you don't know what happiness is. I think she just wants to ruin her brother for what he has done with her.

    Thornton is creepy!!!! I understand Isabella why she is scared for him. I would!

    Like Ruth said, she ruined herself to try to kill Guy and Meg. Poor Meg, and poor Guy. He was totally another human when he met Guy. He offered his life for hers and was very in love. Why, oh why, did they let her die. I think Guy deserves someone who makes him happy, even though he killed Marian. Which makes me angry.

    1. I like this episode because we meet Meg, but then...

      She is such a sweetheart! She and Guy were so perfect, I drove me crazy that they never mentioned her after that, and Guy still was sad about Marian, come on, Guy! Meg was absolutely perfect for you!! Isabella, revenge is not the way to go.

      Thornton would terrify me, too! But Isabella was so ungrateful of Robin's help!

      She was a nice person (I mean, nice enough) she cared for the poor and wanted to help them, but then she was so mad that Guy had ruined so many days of her life. What she sould have done was just move on! The more time she spent thinking about it and making her revenge grow, the more time she lost. I wish she would have come on the show again, I mean how Marian came on the show again. She and Guy were ment for each other!

      Thank you so much for commenting!
