Robin of Sherwood: Set 1

 (TV) (1984)

Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Robin of Loxley is chosen by the mystical Herne the Hunter to become his 'son' and champion the oppressed. Gathering a band of comrades around him he fights a guerilla campaign against their Norman dictators, particularly the Sheriff of Nottingham and his deputy, Guy de Gisburne.

For more about Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 and the Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray release, see Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

One of the reasons why Robin of Sherwood makes a strong candidate for a Blu-ray release is that, unlike a lot of British shows from the 1980s, it was shot on 16mm film instead of video. While inherently softer and more grainy than 35mm, the 16mm footage yields wonderful 1080p/AVC- encoded transfers that markedly improve on the quality of the DVDs and look much better than the series ever looked when it was originally broadcast on television. Detail, all around, is much more finely resolved, whether it's in the texture of the actors' faces, the fabric and leather of the period costuming, or the intricacies of the props. The image is quite soft at times, but it's important to take into account some of the production techniques that the show's cinematographers used, including softening, "glamour shot" type filters and gradient filters. (Check out the crazy red cast in "The Swords of Wayland.") There are some noticeable color and brightness fluctuations—especially in early episodes—but nothing overly distracting. Leafy forest greens are the most dominate color, of course, but the full color spectrum is balanced and dense, neither oversaturated nor wishy-washy. Grain is visible—there's been no DNR scrubbing here—and only occasional noise gives sign of any compression. Overall, I think this set looks great considering its source materials.


Robin of Sherwood: Set 1 Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

It's disappointing that there are no lossless or uncompressed audio options here—the episodes are presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo—but it's debatable how much of a difference high definition audio would make in this situation. Considering all the action in the show, Robin of Sherwood's sound design is very restrained, with workable but understated sound effects. You'll get what you expect—clanging swords, whizzing arrows, etc.—but none of the foley work is particularly punchy or convincing. Not that it matters all that much. The real emphasis here is on the dialogue —which, with a few exceptions, is almost always clean, clear, and unmuffled—and the award-winning score by Irish folk group Clannad, a mix of traditional Celtic instrumentation with washes of synthesizer and layered vocals. It's a bit too "Enya" for my tastes—this makes sense, as Enya was a member of Clannad before embarking on her solo career—but fans will appreciate how full and lush the music sounds here. The menu of each disc in the set also has a tab that lets you select an "original mono" track, but I couldn't get this to work. When playing an episode after selecting mono, the audio would simply default to the stereo track, and when I pressed the audio button on my remote, I could only cycle through the stereo mix, a Polish Dolby Digital 2.0 dub, and—on certain episodes—commentary tracks.
