The “Nightwatchman” in action! – Scenes 1 + 2

So, what’s interesting about this “Nightwatchman” character in this TV show? And how it is relevant to this blog?

Well, what only some folks in the show will find out is…that this masked vigilante is actually a WOman. So the correct title would be NightwatchWOman 😉

I keep referring to her as the “Nightwatchman” because it is the name of the vigilante.

This one is actually one of the very best recommendations that were ever made to me! THANKS a LOT!

It will lead to an entry in the “Hall of Fame” in the next weeks 🙂

I somehow totally missed this TV show and in the end, the recommendation lead to me buying every three seasons of it on Blu-ray.

Each season has “only” 13 episodes but they greedily split each season into 2 blu-ray boxes with just 2 discs each. So I had to buy 6 Blu-ray boxes to get all 3 seasons.

But since the show isn’t new anymore…it wasn’t very expensive (besides the very last box).

This one is another perfect example while I love such characters in (long) TV shows. You really get connected to these characters and every scene has much more intensity for me than it would have if the character would just appear in some minutes during a random video. The character has much more depth and I am much more interested in what will happen to him/her throughout the show.

Yeah, it costs a lot of time to watch all these episodes, but it was more than worth it in the end. And not only for the Nightwatchman scenes, I enjoyed the whole show quite a lot…especially seasons 1 and 2.

In total, I have not fewer than 7 scenes with the Nightwatchman, today I wanna present the first two.

Here is the first scene as an appetizer….

Even this video with less than 2 minutes wasn’t welcome on Youtube, so I had to go with plan B…. even that means that I have to make these posts without any videos on my Youtube channel. 🙁

Yeah, not much to see her as we get only some glimpses on the Nightwatchman.

But it is her first appearance and her background is explained to Robin and us.

And the next scene will be verrrrry interesting 😉

WATCH the video before you continue!

Well…..where to begin?

Let’s start with the costume: At that time only very few sexy fabrics were invented/in use.

I think they make a LOT out of the available materials. I like her leather top that….if you get a good look…. clearly gives away that the Nightwatchman is a woman ;-), even she tries her best that no one notices that with her costume.

I LOVE that she really takes a great effort to hide her identity. Actually, her whole masquerade has 3 items! The hood hides her hair, the rather big eye mask is concealing her face alongside the scarf that covers the lower part of her face.

She has so much to lose if someone would figure out who she is, and she does everything she can to protect her secret identity. A+

If you have seen at least one of the 3652 (or so) Robin Hood movies…you know that Marian is his big love. And that makes his reaction to the unmasking so pleasing to me.

He thinks the Nightwatchman is some kind of murderer (“he” is not) and finds Marian under these masks…. I love such a constellation!

The unmasking is filmed quite….odd. He pulls back her hood …but then she quickly decides to unmask herself completely. Well, it makes sense as they know and love each other (most of the time). As she realizes that there is no escape for her, she rather unmasks herself than letting him do it.

I would have rather preferred her to defend her mask and to put up a fight in a scene before he pins her to the ground, but well she will have some thrilling fights with others ;-).

And this was only the beginning…soon the evil “Guy of Gisborne” will try everything to stop the Nightwatchman.

Guy is also in love with Marian….. and really HATES the Nightwatchman at the same time.

Again…I LOVE such constellations! 😉

Wanna know from which episode of which show this is?
