Product Description & Reviews
Long before Harry there was Robin, a magical, mystical youth fighting against evil with his own innate goodness and inherited powers. And of all the interpretations of the Robin Hood legend, this acclaimed 1980s British TV series endures in the hearts of fans for its lavishly produced mix of gripping action adventure, fantasy, and authentic historical drama. Set 1, which includes all 13 episodes in Series 1 & 2, stars Michael Praed (Dynasty) as Robin of Loxley, with Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) as Will Scarlet, and Nickolas Grace (Brideshead Revisited) as the Sheriff of Nottingham. As seen on Showtime and PBS as Robin Hood. When Robin of Sherwood debuted in 1984, it revolutionized the legend of Robin Hood with a young, scruffy Robin (Michael Praed, later to appear on Dynasty) and his ragged, rough-and-tumble band of thieves. Fusing the derring-do of the traditional story with a more Arthurian magic element (ranging from druidic visions to outright black magic), Robin of Sherwood was an immediate sensation. Unfortunately, not all revolutions age well, and some viewers may have trouble getting past Robin's flowing 1980s hairstyle or the Clannad soundtrack, which seems to have been played on the cheapest, tinniest synthesizer available. More open-minded audiences will enjoy the show's virtues: Gritty, realistic medieval sets and costumes; an amusing blend of feudal politics and occult danger (episodes featured everything from possession to love spells to devil-worshiping nuns); a scenery-chewing performance from Nickolas Grace (Brideshead Revisited) as the Sheriff of Nottingham (the bad guys always have the most fun); and the surly presence of a young Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast) as Will Scarlet. All the classic characters are there, including a dewy Lady Marion, towering Little John, plump Friar Tuck, and more. Though sometimes cheesy, Robin of Sherwood never slid into camp, and fans appreciate its earnest interpretation. Set 1 includes the 13 episodes of the first two series, along with a bonus disk of retrospective interviews with the cast and creators, outtakes, and other appealing features. --Bret Fetzer

Cujo-It's been a long time since I've seen this film, but to my memory, it was a pretty decent horror flick about a rabid St. Bernard. ** 1/2 out of ***** (Based on 7-year old memory)
The Stand-Completely compelling horror epic about the end of the world and the survivors dealing with the aftermath. At 6 hrs., it's LONG but never dull. Somewhat lackluster ending, though. Great performances from Gary Sinise, Miguel Ferrer, Rob Lowe, and Jamey Sheriday, and a fine score from W.G. Snuffy
