Well there's nothing like doing the upteenth re-imagining of something.
When you're dealing with a centuries-old figure of legend like Robin Hood, a story we only remember because countless writers over more than a millennium have continually reimagined and reinvented it, it's pretty silly to talk about that like it's a bad thing. Our "standard" perception of the Robin Hood story, with characters like the Sheriff of Nottingham and Alan-a-Dale and so on, is itself a later reimagining of the old legends. Reinventing old stories is what keeps them alive and engaging to generation after generation.
Whilst this is true, I can't imagine anything approaching the quality of HTV's brilliant Robin of Sherwood (I think it was just called Robin Hood in the US) for me THE definitive version...
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
