GUEST,Grab BS: Friar Tuck (71* d) RE: BS: Friar Tuck 30 Mar 06

Since he wasn't in the stories, he may well not be in the remakes.

On this subject, does anyone else have fond memories of the 1980s ITV version? Jason Connery (son of Sean) was one of the Robins (for people who didn't see it, there was a mystical reincarnation bit between two series). I was tempted to get them on DVD and see whether they stand up to watching when you're older than 10, but the boxed set costs a fortune (£40!) so sod that. My memory though is that it was a fairly gritty kind of thing, with the outlaws actually acting like outlaws instead of a bunch of perfect genteel knights.

Sadly it's never been repeated, which is a shame. I think it would still work today, bcos it didn't rely on digital special effects or dodgy painted scenery, so that wouldn't have dated.

And the less said about the recent American effort (a Xena/Hercules wannabe), the better...
