Er, have it your way?

May 11, 2010 - Deb Gau
Since Mothers' Day was rather cold and rainy this year, my siblings and I did most of our celebrating with Mom indoors - it was really more of a 'hang out and watch t.v. together' kind of weekend. We just recently got through another season's worth of 'Robin Hood' on DVD. This version is a BBC series, with sort of a younger Robin Hood than we're used to seeing after Kevin Costner got through with the character. It's good fun, although a little cheesy at times.

The general consensus on the new set's episodes was that Prince John stole the show. He was played in a rather campy fashion which was entertaining by itself, but then one of us (I forget if it was me, my mom or my sister) piped up with an observation: "You know, he kind of looks like the Burger King. Same haircut, similar outfit, same big creepy smile."

There was no turning back. We laughed until we cried at the thought of Prince John's flame-broiled tyranny.
