Please hop over to Olivia's wonderful blog to check out all the lovely Robin Hood festivities and whatnot. Because people running around in forests and bows and arrows and awesome villains equals yes. :)
What was your first exposure to Robin Hood?
The Adventures of Robin Hood by Roger Lancelyn Green.
Love. that. book.
On a scale of 1 to 10, how big a fan are you?
Probably 4 or 5. I really like Roger Lancelyn Green's book and I've read several other re-tellings, but I didn't like any of them exceedingly well and I'm only a partial fan of the tv show. *hides*
How many versions and spin-offs of the legend have you experienced?
The books The Adventures of Robin Hood, The Outlaws of Sherwood, The Merry Adventures of Robin Hood, Hood, and Ivanhoe, if that counts.
I've seen part of the Disney and Errol Flynn movies, but neither in entirety(yet). I've seen a season and a half of the BBC show, aaaaand a play version.
What is your favorite version of Robin Hood (can be book, movie, TV series, anything)?
The Roger Lancelyn Green book. Always. ;)
I doubt most people would enjoy it as much as I did, but there's something special about it since I've read it multiple times and the first time my ten-year-old self was blown away by how entertaining and epic Robin Hood is.
Are you one of the lads? (Meaning, have you watched/are you a fan of the BBC show?)
Yes, yes I have. And it is seriously the most gif-worthy thing I've ever seen.
Who is your favorite Merry Man?
In the BBC show, Much, because I love underdog and earnest characters, even if they're cliche or underdeveloped.
Do you have a favorite portrayal of Lady Marian?
Lucy Griffith's probably.
Do you have any interest in or aptitude at archery?
I thought I was semi-good when I did it at summer camp, but it's not something I've pursued since.
Fact or fiction -- which do you think?
Both? That seems like the safest answer. xD
Do you think Robin Hood has been "done to death," or are there still new twists that can be found?
Hmmm, I think Robin Hood movies/tv shows/books in traditional Robin Hood settings may have outlived their welcome(not that I would turn down seeing/reading a new one if it were good enough), but I think there's still places to explore with stories following a Robin Hood structure in the way Leverage does(which, by the way, I have not seen *hides again*).
So short answer, sort of, but no.
Thank you so much, Olivia for the wonderful tag!! :D
