The first one was pretty good, much better than the first episode of some series that turn out great as they hit their stride.
My wife thought it was a bit darker than some of the other Robin Hood series/movies she's seen. But the main RH series we've seen was the one in the late 80s (I think) with a very mystical take on Robin, with Herne the Hunter as almost a patron god for Robin, the magical swords, etc. And compared to that, I didn't think the new series was particularly dark. I think she's just misremembering...
If anything I thought they injected a bit of humor into what had to be a kind of depressing episode. I mean, the legend goes that he comes back from the crusades to find his homeland in the grip of a tyrant and gets unjustly outlawed. It's hard for that first storyline to *not* be depressing. I got the feel that once the heroes are together and ready to start striking back, the overal tone will be fine.
