The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 1 Episode 38: The Wager

A wager between Friar Tuck and Robin Hood seeks to prove who can make the most money for the hideouts treasury. The Friar will utilise his position in the church and Robin will play a beggars role. Along the way, Robins cover is blown and must escape the grasp of the sheriffs men. The wager is settled but only with the help of some divine intervention.

Personal Synopsis

A thin storyline that never captured my attention, The Wager, shows a playful side to the Outlaws and Friar Tucks life in Sherwood Forest. A wager is made to find out once and for all who can make more money a beggar or a friar. The adventures that transpire get Robin Hood in trouble, and Friar Tuck showing that the more passive approach could reap the same or even more rewards in the end.
