I love this idea! watched a couple of trailers before I went to work. He makes a great Robin Hood! Emily W.
I don't think you need to have a reason for adding gratuitous Robin Hood. It's a reason in itself. ;)That was a splendidly historically inaccurate episode, though! They did so well on their American history, and then when they tried to do British history, they went all Errol Flynn! :D
That may very well have been the point, Swordz; just having a little fun with something that almost nothing was known about at the time - at least as far as we knew on this side of the Pond. ;D
Thanks Emily! I'm surprised I never thought about that idea until someone asked.Yeah, Sometimes it's fine to just throw a pic in there for good measure. I think they were inaccurate all around the pond. lol. But then I remember what they were teaching from textbooks all through the eighties and early nineties, it probably was all true to them. I remember my sixth and seventh grade (Jeffrey age) history class and it was very similar to the way Jeff spouts off his facts.I personally think they went all Errol Flynn with the Pirate looks too. But why cover Jon's spectacular face with a scraggly beard and all that? And thank goodness he didn't have a Dutch boy! haha. But it would have been fun to see him get the makeover ala 'Making of a Male Model' teehee!
Smart kids give me a pain… Comments, thoughts, and ideas are appreciated!
