5.0 out of 5 stars They just dont make TV like this anymore!, 20 Mar 2007
This review is from: Sharpe: The Complete Series (Collector's Edition) [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
The Sharpe series presented in a very attractive box set is a must for all Sharpe fans.

The Box contains the first 14 feature length episodes (Challenge was not filmed when this was released), the films follows the adventures of Richard Sharpe from his promotion from the ranks (very uncommon in those days) through the Neapolean Wars to the final battle of Waterloo, his promotions, frienships, trials and love life.

Each episode is based on the Cornwall books with the exception of Sharpes Justice (Number 13), though slightly out of sync with the books it still makes for exceptional viewing and follows on from one to the other relitively well.

The battle scenes are an anti-climax from the books due to the much smaller scale but the atmoshere is just as rich.

Jion the chosen men and relive the excitement of the era!

Correction: Each episode is based on the Cornwall books with the exception of Sharpe's Justice AND Sharpe's Gold, which was bleeding awful, even Cornwall was surprised by how little it related to his novel apart from the title. The screenplay was terrible beyond belief! Sharpe's Justice, on the other hand, makes for an interesting peacetime "filler" between Bonaparte's abdication and Waterloo, given its references to the industrial revolution, Luddites, etc, it feels more like a Cornwall plot than an original script and was far more enjoyable than Gold.
