#1 ROBIN HOOD SEASON 2
Robin Hood season 1 was good. I enjoyed the modern look to the costuming, and, of course, I love the Robin Hood story. All the merry band of do gooder thieves: Little John, Robin, Marian. The old familiar enemies, like the sheriff of Nottingham and Guy of Gisborne. However, it is Robin Hood season 2 that I recommend to you.
I adore these characters. I love to hate Nottingham’s sheriff. Seriously, this character is fresh, and funny. Marion is a new kind of Marion, strong, independent, and capable. Not a princess in a dress waiting for her knight in shining armor. Robin is believable. He has an intricate past and emotion and arrogance – strength and flaws.
There are many great adventures in this 4 disc set. So add it to your Netflix queue, you’ll be glad you did.
Based upon a true story, Defiance was like a blending of Schindler’s list and a post-apocolyptic thriller.
As the Nazi’s begin to round up Jews, or kill them, three brother’s escape into the ubiquitous Belarussian woods, only to find they are not the only Jews hiding there. When the three discover more Jews, they are forced to make a decision: Will they make these “others” their competition in the fight for survival, or will the join together in the battle against the Nazi’s and the elements of nature?
I am purchasing this one. It is an imperative addition to my knowledge of faith, history, and the human condition.
