Excellent series
16 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I totally loved the Sharpe series i just wished they had made them all. Sean Bean and Daragh O'Malley along with the chosen ones made it a great show to watch for hours and hours if you can get the whole set. The ones that are missing are Sharpe's Tiger, Sharpe's Triumph, Sharpe's Trafalgar, Sharpe's Prey, Sharpe's Havoc, Sharpe's Gold, Sharpe's Escape, Sharpe's Fury, and Sharpe's Devil. Now those would have folded out a totally great epic had they been produced. If they had followed the whole book line for the epic series they would have made it totally great. Also i would love to have them make Cromwell's short stories on Sharpe incorporated into this series.
