The Maid Marian and Her Merry Men DVD arrived yesterday. The series from the late 80’s/early 90’s will be fondly remembered by anyone aged 18-30 who watched it when it was originally aired. Along with Round the Twist, Maid Marian is quite arguably the best kids TV show ever.

The DVD is very well presented; it would have been so easy for the BBC just to stick the episodes on a disc in a flimsy box with no extras and VHS quality video & audio. This is not the case, the DVD is very well packaged, the soundtrack and picture remastered and a good selection of extras, including commentary from Tony Robinson on episode 1, it’s just a shame all six episodes didn’t have this feature.

As for entertainment, the show is just as funny as I remembered it, there are also a few adult jokes and references which, as a seven year old you would not get watching back in 1989.

All in all a top DVD, Series 2 is scheduled for a summer 2006 release, something to look forward to.

For more “Marian Memories”, or if you are too tight to buy the DVD, take a look at this website, full of sound clips, screen captures and facts on the cult TV show.

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
