Seeing that I am in the mood for something period and English, I dug out my DVDs of Robin of Sherwood, a 1980s BBC series that gave me my first OTP ever. I remember being seven years old, watching the dubbed episodes all tense with excitement, and then dragging one of my cousins to the attic to play Robin and Marian. Michael Praed's Robin and Jodi Trott's Marian were my first ever OTP - years before I even knew what an OTP was and, looking back, have informed a ridiculous amount of my current shippy preferences. I remember getting a long nightgown as a present for my eighth birthday and being excited because I could pretend it was Marian's dress.

I rewatched RoS decades later and realized it was a rare thing that held up from the days of my childhood. It remains my favorite take on the RH legend (only Parke Godwin's similarly dark take in two novels comes close) with its grime (Robin is no aristocrat here) and view of immutability of class and hopelessness and necessity of the fight. And yes, I am still obsessed with Robin and Marian.

Have a MV.



I think I won't rewatch the last ep of Series 2 though. Last time I did so, I had such bad hysterics, Mr. Mousie had to spend literally an hour comforting me and pointing out it's fiction.

Ah, childhood loves.

One of the things I always loved was Alfred Noyes' poem The Highwayman and Loreena McKennitt's song rendition of it...



I am not really in a drama mood right now...I kinda feel like digging out my Sir Walter Scott instead. No idea why, but I want something period and English. Maybe I'll finish Sir Edward Bulwer-Lytton's Paul Clifford (which would make the most awesome mini - why are there nowhere near as many English period shows as are Korean ones?)
