It's amazing what I remember and what I have forgotten.

This series based on a popular legend was - perhaps - known as much for it's musical score than anything else. I rather enjoyed this one.

If you're talking about a legend that was king of the wild frontier I know which show. I don't think I ever watched the show but I am reasonably familiar with the theme song

That's a good guess, but this show took place across the pond.

Acceptable answer! Robin of Sherwood (aka Robin Hood) was a mid-80's series. I found it streamable on Comcast and might give it a go.

LOL! I saw your answer before the edit.

Mine starred the famous (or not) Michael Praed and then Jason Connery (son of Sean).

The music of the show was so well-known and influential that the Robin Hood Flour Company used it in its commercials for a few seasons.

I forgot to mention, the musical score from Robin of Sherwood was by Clannad. Good stuff.

Meanwhile, in the background, a thief is partly successful at stealing what make these individuals so unique.

Robin of Sherwood was created by Richard Carpenter (and he wrote nearly all the episodes) who also created and wrote Catweazle.

After that, it became a real train wreck ... soblue

I missed the last two episodes of the final series. It doesn't bother me.

I thought it was good up until the first season finale, where it dropped the ball and never recovered. The recent revival was pretty terrible, too. I think this might be one of those shows that would benefit away from the hands of its creator.

That’s a bit harsh, IMHO.

OTOH, the last two seasons were a pain to watch. yuk

Till the end, I hoped against hope that it would salvage itself.

A great concept, but too many missed opportunities.

Tried to get my spawn (4.5yo) to watch a few episodes last night. She declared it inferior to Trolls: The Beat Goes On.

Phooey on me for not knowing there was a TV series made. The clue certainly sounded like Evil Dead to me.
