Camera One June 29, 2014 Share June 29, 2014 (edited) From Speculation without Spoilers Thread: I strongly disagree, and in fact this is one of the things that's disappointed me about OUAT's Robin thus far: he's not gray at all! He's a very standard (and bland) Good Guy. Hook is a far grayer character than Robin. The Knave from Once: Wonderland, who's mostly a good guy, is a grayer character than Robin.* Hell, freaking Snow White with her "dark spot" is grayer than Robin! There's no edge to this Robin at all (and here I blame acting as well as writing, because Tom Ellis had more edge in 5 minutes in 'Lacey' than Sean Maguire mustered in an entire season, and brought more dashing charm to boot). Maybe he will grow on me yet, but after half a season, I still find him very bland. I usually like the "nice guys" on a show and I don't always need edge, but this Robin Hood seems to lack a personality. Tom Ellis's Robin Hood had an intensity that I just don't find with Sean Maguire's Robin Hood. A lot of it is the writing, for sure. If they were going to give Robin Hood such a prominent role, at the very least give us his origin story to find out why he's stealing from the rich to give to the poor. In some ways, I can't even visualize him stealing from the rich. Edited June 29, 2014 by Camera One Link to comment
