I love Sharpe and Hornblower and now have them all on DVD and Blu-ray (Sharpe is now on Blu-ray). I am now looking for similar lavish period series or films to watch. Preferably Napoleonic era...and preferably TV series...and preferably military themes, but please feel free to recommend other period dramas or films you think I might enjoy (older than the two world wars, I've had my fill of WWI and WWII stuff). I bought Master and Commander recently and enjoyed that, too.

I would greatly appreciate your recommendations. Thanks.

Damn the Defiant is a pretty good flick starring Alec Guinness along the lines of Mutiny On The Bounty. One of my favorite mini-series is "To The Ends Of The Earth" starring Sam Neil and that new Sherlock Holmes TV series chap.
Have you watched Zulu on Blu-ray? Superb upgrade.
Waterloo is a big budget movie starring Rod Steiger and Christopher Plummer, but I found it to be a little bit of a yawnfest to be honest as was Charge Of The Light Brigade.

For WWII TV series Band of Brothers and Pacific is worth a look. For Roman History Rome is also worth a look. (all from HBO)
