The Adventures of Robin Hood Season 2 Episode 5: The Goldmaker

Sir Richard of the Lea is no good with his money and now owes more than half of Nottingham’s merchants. As Robin steps in to help out this loyal friend of King Richard, he notices that Sir Richards lust for gold or so it seems has not been hindered by his debtors knocking down his door. A mysterious man has convinced Sir Richard that the best way to make money is to actually make money but the sheriff has his ears perked about The Goldmaker.

Personal Synopsis

All that glitters is gold? At least the idea glitters in the mind of those seeking more. A story of greed that exploits the desires for riches, and eventually teaching a much needed lesson to the sheriff and Sir Richard of the Lea as well. This episode is a clear reflection of the political beliefs of the shows producers showing that greed will only get you so far.
