Sharpe is awesome
15 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Sharpe has always been my favorite TV series, and i was over the moon when i heard the box set was coming out. Sean Bean and Daragh O Malley are the greatest acting duo in history and for anyone who hasn't seen any of the Sharpe's, i strongly recommend you do. I think when you finish this entire legendary set of Sharpes you will see why Sean bean is the big movie star that he is, and when i watched it for the first time i couldn't see why Daragh O Malley hasn't been in more films, he is a truly great actor and has the potential to be a massive celebrity. i am so glad the new one has come out and i will buy it the first day it gets released, thats how addicted you get to Sharpe when you see the box set.
