I never caught this show with Michael Praed in the title role but I did see at least the first episode of the third season with Jason "son of Sean" Connery replacing him. Connery was actually playing a different character who takes on the mantle of "Robin Hood" after Praed's character was killed at the end of season two. Although Connery looked more like an Australian beach bum than a medieval outlaw, I thought it was quite good but as I'll explain shortly I wasn't in a position to continue with it.
The third season turned out to be the final one but that wasn't down to Connery who was generally accepted as a decent substitute. The real reason goes back to the previous post ; the series was part-financed by Goldcrest and when Absolute Beginners flopped, they had to pull the plug leaving plotlines unresolved.
Connery's mediocre career limps on, this still being his most famous role.
