5.0 out of 5 stars Sharpe - The Complete Series (14 Disc Box Set)., 5 Jan. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Sharpe - The Complete Series (14 Disc Box Set) [DVD] [1995] (DVD)
I was a huge fan of Sharpe when it was on tv even though I was quite young at the time (I was 14 when it finished in '97) so when I saw this DVD Box Set I just had to have it! I'm happy to say that I haven't been disapointed- it's every bit as good as I remember it, even more so! Actually, I got so into it that I watched all 14 episodes (each about an hour and forty to an hour and fifty minutes long) within four days!
What can i say, he cast is good, the scenery is beautiful (mainly Spainish countryside but a little of France & England), the characters are wonderful & the stories are action packed & just generally excellent! Anyone who likes period dramas and/or action will love this!
The special features on the DVD aren't that good, there aren't many & I have yet to track down the promised 25 minute documentary. The 'Sharpe Facts' are interesting though, giving both information on how the series was made and information about the times the series is set in (19th Century Napoleonic Wars).
Oh yes and ladies, don't forget the gorgeous Sean Bean being very energetic in a very sexy uniform! I have to say that I've never thought he looked that great in anything else but I can't take my eyes off him in this!
This is an excellent series which I've found appeals to a very wide variety of people- my older brother loves it, my ex boyfriend loves it, my friend's mother loves it, another friend's father loves it, one of my best (female) friends loves it and a Dr I recently saw told me that his grandfather loves it! This box set is now one of my most prized posessions and I think I'm going to have to convince a lot of people to buy it just so that they don't steal mine! (I've found I've become very protective of it lol).
In short: BUY THIS DVD BOX SET- IT'S EXCELLENT!
