MissM, Protector of the Downtrodden


MissM is anxious about Guy of Gisbourne:

"He hasn't had a good series, you know...

first he is Sheriff
and then he is not...

he is cruelly betrayed by
Mad King John...

he ends up with an evil sister
who keeps trying to kill him...

and the arch-enemy
whom he has been trying to kill
for the past two series
is actually his brother...

and a step-father with leprosy
turns up unexpectedly and drugs him...

and he has to rescue another brother
that he didn't even know existed...

and the only person who has loved him
gets stabbed and dies in his arms...

and he has been thrown in jail
twice...

No wonder his hair is getting greasier every week."



MrM doesn't care.

He sits on the sofa
and murmurs
"Good Arrers*"
every time Robin Hood saves the day.


* a regrettable clue
that MrM has spent
unrecoverable hours watching
The World Darts Championship on TV.

Thank you for that.
Yummy.
(You are not the only person whose blog I have read this evening made mention of RA.)

Does sound like an exceptional run of bad luck. Probably explains the glowering, too.

Lynn said...

Haha about the greasy hair, because all I could think was, "Gee, the black dye is gradually rinsing out of that guy's hair..."

Looks like something that would improve our TV - has to be better than the current "I'm a Celebrity; Get Me Out of Here" reality show starring, among other questionables, the wife of our disgraced and ousted governor.

Change the names and perhaps the diesease and you could be discussing any character on a daytime soap opera!

You could have warned us you were going to post pictures like that.

should it be 'unrecoverable' or 'irrecoverable'? Either way they are lost forever.

Saturnine would seem an appropriate epithet for GoG

Guy looks like a man who can care of himself and not at all downtrodden.

Did he love her or was she just a way for him to atone for his betrayal of Marion? She was an interesting plot device but I feel somewhat shoe-hornedinto the episdoe. Obviously it was necessary for narrative development but perhaps could have been drawn out a little bit. But I like d her.

A favourite show for us as a family.

It is not showing at the moment but now I know what to look forward to!

Miss M is right he hasn't had a good series but no doubt he'll be back on form in the next.

He is quite good looking! I wish we had your BBC programs here! BBC America does not quite measure up!

Suse said...

Oh! Mr Armitage! Oh!

The Coffee Lady said...

We do like Robin Hood.

For me though Mr Armitage is but a pale imitation of the leather-trousered Alan Rickman in the film.

That kind of beauty is timeless.

I roared when I got to the end of the post, I did not have Mr M down as a darts fan.

I feel very possessive of the original "Robin of Sherwood", with which I was obsessed in my late teens/early 20's. Nothing can top that, not ever.

And on one, but NO ONE, has ever looked as good in leathers as Mark Ryan as Nasir.

True fact.
