What was your first exposure to Robin Hood?
The Disney version, if my memory serves me correctly. (Which is adorable and delightful, by the way. I won't be mentioning it much this week, but rest assured I DO love it.)
On a scale of 1 to 10, how big a fan are you?
I feel like I'm copying Olivia's answer. :P It depends on the version. BBC deserves a 10. All the others fall somewhere lower on the scale, although I still like them well enough. ;)
How many versions and spin-offs of the legend have you experienced?
*Counts with my fingers* Let's see....BBC...Roger Lancelyn Green's book....The Outlaws of Sherwood...the Disney version....does a lame CFR novel slightly based off Robin Hood count? No? Good. Then my answer is four.
PS. I just remembered another lame RH spin off book I read when I was younger, but again, let's not count that. (Granted, it's been a few years. Maybe I'd like it better now. But I digress...)
What is your favorite version of Robin Hood (can be book, movie, TV series, anything)?
I really don't have a favorite.*
Are you one of the lads? (Meaning, have you watched/are you a fan of the BBC show?)
Me? A one of the lads? Please.*
Who is your favorite Merry Man?
URGH that's hard. Maybe Robin? Will? Allan? I don't know....
Do you have a favorite portrayal of Lady Marian?
My answer to anyone who doesn't like BBC's Marian:
Do you have any interest in or aptitude at archery?
Interest, definitely. Aptitude....well, my brother used to own a kid-sized bow and arrow. I think I was able to hit the bull's eye.....
Let's say I could and move on. :P
Fact or fiction -- which do you think?
I like to think Robin Hood is based after some sort of fact, although my pessimistic side tells me the real Robin was probably not as handsome and heroic and altogether wonderful as some of his fictional counterparts. (If someone has proof to the contrary, please do share your findings.)
Do you think Robin Hood has been "done to death," or are there still new twists that can be found?
There are ALWAYS new twists to be found. Granted, I am not familiar with most of the Robin Hood versions out there, but I'm always open to trying new ones, if they're appropriate and all that jazz. ;) Any suggestions, my merry friends? (Was that overdoing it? Yes, that was overdoing it. Goodness, Natalie stop making such lame jokes. :P)
*In case someone who doesn't know me all too well is reading this, BBC Robin Hood is actually my favorite version of all time, hands down. I was being sarcastic. (Or would it be it tongue in cheek?...)
