And again the answer comes back loud and clear: No. No, there is not.
Because of COURSE he did.
Apparently unable to accept that his ‘modern reimagining’ of the arrow-slinging outlaw may only appeal to a very, very small niche of audiences, Robyn Hood Julien Christian Lutz has lashed out at critics of his new series, accusing them of being not just “angry nerds”, but also outright racists.
Created by Lutz, otherwise known by his alias Director X, and featuring a story by Orphan Black story coordinator Chris Roberts, the eight-episode “near-fi-action drama” is described by its host network, Canada’s Global Television Network, as a “contemporary re-imagining of Robin Hood” wherein “Robyn is a fearless young woman who is not just another superhero, with abilities normal people don’t have.”
“She is a Gen Zer driven by the injustices of today who embraces the heroic, hopeful and playful elements of the world’s most recognizable folk hero,” details the series’ official synopsis. “She learns to fight for what’s right, to care for and lead her followers. And like all Robin Hoods since the first ballad, Robyn holds those in power to account by using their greed against them to help her community.”
“Robyn Hood follows Robyn Loxley, a young woman whose masked hip-hop band, The Hood, is known for their inventive videos and anti-authoritarian message,” it adds. “She lives in Sherwood Towers, a cluster of rental high-rises in a working-class corner of New Nottingham, a near-fi city where the cost of living has skyrocketed, leaving an ever-widening gap between the rich and everyone else.”
“When Robyn finds herself fighting for her home and her family against local property developer John Prince and The Sheriff of New Nottingham, Robyn and her band The Hood decide to fight back, righting the wrongs of the corrupt elite to give back to the people who are living under their regime,” the network concludes.
I have no words. Read on for a statistical breakdown of the dismal ratings for this latest colossal Wokester flop given by its miniscule audience.
Incandescent update! Straightaway another question pops up: Can these radiant artists of assbaggery like Directah X ’N’ Sheeit really not come up with a single original idea for a story, all on their own? Not even ONE?!?
Yeah, never mind. To ask the question is to answer it.
