In an England at war with itself, Sherwood Forest serves as both playground and battlefield for Robin and his Merry Men as they fight against the tyranny of King John and the Sheriff of Nottingham. Equal parts dramatic and comedic, 'Robin Hood' walks the line between 'The Adventures of Robin Hood' and 'Robin Hood: Men in Tights.'
