SPOILER ALERT re: ROBIN HOOD (2006) BBC with Jonas Armstrong
...if you don't want to know important bits don't read below the photograph...
I hope I made the picture big enough... Gee, I wouldn't want an unsuspecting fan to read what's coming next or miss out on a good-looking face either (not as handsome as my husband, but he'll do).
And that is that YOU CAN'T KILL MARIAN!
I thoroughly enjoyed the series through season one. I loved the filmography. One quality in particular was how they ended each episode with a black and white freeze frame. It always struck me. I loved the music, the introduction...
Which is why I was wary at the start of season two. Things changed...the look, the feel of the creation. For example, Marian's clothes became much more provacative. Not horrible, but definitely different than season one. The introduction changed, too--new music, new images. No freeze frame, either. How funny something so small and seemingly unimportant would stand out to me? But it did. I didn't like that they took that out.
But, all in all, I continued to enjoy the story line.
GREAT villain. Tortured heroes. Good vs. Evil, always a winner in my book.
And then, they killed Marian.
|Marian, in the scene where she finally starts to marry Robin. Yes, that's him behind her...|
They've been strung up in the desert to die. (oh, oops. SPOILER ALERT!)
I wonder who did her brows back in those days?
So, though a small part of me wanted to shoot my television, perhaps it's not such a miracle that I didn't.
I see a swift and sudden end to the series. One more season, two at the very most, but I haven't done my research, so I'm not sure how many seasons the series had before it ended. What a shame...
They didn't just kill Marian.
They killed their success...
Poo. How disappointing.
