    I plead irresponsible youth - I was in my early teens and didn't know any better.

Add a slightly maniacal/borderline doolally Sheriff of Nottingham and a suitably lunkheaded sidekick, all the requisite stereotype merry men etc. etc.

    Mind you, I've caught a few episodes on ITV3 since then, and wondered what on earth I was thinking back when it first aired.
    Robin of Sherwood was brilliant - all that Herne the Hunter / Green manstuff was inspired.

    Plus who wouldn't love it with Ray Winstone as Will Scarlet?

    My favourite, after Dr Who, as a kid was The Tomorrow People. But I also remember a series, maybe only the one, called Sky that came on when Tomorrow People had become Yesterday's People. A boy (alien?) was found nekkid in some woods, and a load of kids looked after him. he had weird eyes.

    Anyone?

    I am 100% sure that it isn't a figment of my (admittedly vivid) imagination.

    ^ not your imagination MC, there's a little clip of the intro here (scroll down the page for it) I'd completely forgot about this show, but I remember the creepy music.

    *edit* MC... THANK YOU

    Thanks to your post about "Sky" I've found the most amazing site. I was looking for more info about the show and came across this place.

    The chap there is doing dvd's of Dennis Potters 'Lipstick on Your Collar'...I'd given up on ever owning this brilliant drama (no way will I pay £30+ for a VHS)
    I am so chuffed I could burst.

    OMG I've just noticed he's doing "The Last Train" as well....

    MC: YOu know of course that Robin of Sherwood and the Tomorrow People are both on DVD now, don't you? Could be an ideal chance to scare...I mean, entertain the gruesomes.

    Ohhh the Gruesomes would love the Tomorrow People - for Christmas.

    And thank goodness Egeria (you're welcome, btw) found that Sky thing for me. I'd love to see it again.

    Awesome! Maybe this will motivate an American broadcaster to pick it up.

    I would have thought we would have gotten a Dr. Who syndication after the mini-series that aired several years ago. The was some of the best Sci-fi I've ever seen. Next to SG

    Great news, though I'm not surprised considering the ratings the show was getting.

    The way politics and the mass media currently are here makes Doctor Who a tough sell, IMO.

    And that's a shame, because I'm hearing it's been winning over many new fans. I bet it would do well here, but I can't see it getting past the American television executives. They tend to block out any thought-provoking entertainment.

    It's a crying shame really.

    I want my favourite show to make it big across the pond *stamps feet*
