My husband and I really enjoy watching movies or TV shows together. Usually, when he comes home from work or school, the house is tidied, the dishes are done, and I’m working on a sewing project, it’s late and our favorite thing to do is sit together for an hour and be entertained by something besides ourselves. We have a particular love of the BBC and several of their movies, which I posted about last year.
For the last long while, we’ve been watching regular ol’ TV episodes. But I have become more and more sensitive to the immorality, language, violence, and overall “blech” on TV, even in the “good” shows. We decided to ditch our DirecTV service and go to Netflix. As we searched online for a good show to watch one night, we happened upon a BBC made-for-TV version of Robin Hood.
At first, I thought it was going to be a nice little story, but after the first episode, I was completely enraptured by the whole thing. The best part was how CLEAN it was! It felt SO good to view completely wholesome entertainment. Unlike most BBC made-for-TV productions, this one is not a movie. It is truly a TV series. So it has 3 seasons, with about 13 episodes each. But to me, it feels like a LONG BBC movie.
We watched the first season and absolutely loved it. We’ve started the second season but it isn’t as good as the first. Still, it is so much better than anything on TV right now, if simply for the reason that it is so clean and still entertaining.
So if you’re looking for something to watch, give it a shot. I hope you like it!
