    Robin Hood Season 3 on DVD January 12th

    The BBC revitalized Robin Hood a few years ago with a brand new series.  It’s an extremely good series, and a great addition to the Robin Hood story, even if it’s only three short seasons.  Tomorrow, you’ll be able to grab the third and final season of this popular BBC show for yourself.  The third season is tougher and darker as the gang splits up and Robin heads out on his own to revenge Marian.  And it’s the intervention from Tuck (David Harewood) that works to stop Robin.

    Folklore review
