Carravaggio

oh yes he is

The Robin Hood saga in the SMH continues:
This is getting out of hand, as we suspected it might. We refer to the furious 12th century calendar debate inspired by the first episode of Robin Hood on the ABC a week ago. "Under terms of the Market and Wakes Charter, Henry II (1154-1189) granted Nottingham its market day as Saturday - actually, sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday," insists John Stanton. "So unless he arrived in the dark, Robin would have gone to Nottingham on a Saturday, not a Tuesday." Part of us wants to knock this subject on the head, but it's like a train wreck; you can't look away.

Heh heh heh. Actually, now that I know it's not going to get any better I'm actually enjoying it far more this time around and wallowing in the bits that don't suck. Guy was drool worthy as always and Robin slighly less of a prat than I remember, but this is the last episode where he's actually nice to Much. The poor wee unloved by his beloved baby.
