Personal Synopsis

Robin Hood doesn’t lose archery tournaments. Everyone knows that. This episode includes another visit by Maid Marian’s eccentric uncle Earl of Rochdale who does not fit the stereotype of a powerful lord of the land in fact seems completely unaware of the power struggles in the kingdom. A fun to watch episode with a classic archery tournament.
