    1. I've seen a few clips but never a whole episode and it looks like they got just the guy for both Sharpe and the sergeant.

  2. I've heard the books are great.
    I would, however, be interested in learning what a "solider" is. "Solider" than what?
    I know, not your spelling, but the original poster's.

    1. You know, I didn't even see that!
      I read most of the books. I started them when he was well into the series and so read about 10 by the time I was slowed by the pace of writing. Even then they rolled out regularly. This is one of the few times I think the 'show' is as good as or better than the books. Outstanding casting and acting.

    3. Sorry, I didn't even realize it was posting me as "unknown".

  3. Have all of the books and DVDs. It's been a while since I've seen the shows but I watch the clips on You Tube. Another good series by Bernard Cornwell is The Last Kingdom, I think 9 books and three DVDs. I think that each DVD covers about two books.
