This might just be for the English here... Sean Bean was in a series taken from the Sharpe books, about the Napoleonic wars... Am I the only one OLD ENOUGH to remember this?? They were amazing!

They were great! Sean Bean got to play a great angsty tough commander role during the french/english wars :D

I've never seen the series, but I think his joke about Narsil in FotR ("Still sharp(e)") is hilarious :-D And from the pictures I've seen from the series, Mr. Bean didn't look too shabby in the role :P

According to the teletext on ITV this morning, Sean Bean is going to do some more episodes of Sharpe soon - they will be filming in India, although it didn't say if the stories were set there or if they were just filming there pretending to be in Spain or whatever.

I don't know if that is true, but ITV is the channel that showed all of the other episodes, so hopefully we will be seeing a little more of Sharpe in the near(ish) future. :drool:

I actually have never seem them but I know how popular they are. ITV have just shown one of a new batch of episodes so there's likely to be more in the future.

No Tirelen, you're not the only one old enough to remember it.
Sharpe was awesome. I loved it. I want to get my hands on the complete box set.But it's pricey, even in a sale.
Roll on the new one. :-D

I love Sharpe, my dad used to watch them when they where on tv, I was too young to really appreciate them, although I watch them now on DVD.

Sharpe's Challange was a nice treat when it was on tv!

Yeah, the library here in Covina has a few of them. I don't think that many people watch them though *sigh* What a shame. The show was awsome beyond belief.
I'm really glad that Sean decided to do Sharpe's Challenge.

For an American it was REAL expensive :lol: My dad and I bought in for like 60 GBP (I believe, I'll figure it out tomorrow. My dad has the exact price, but he is asleep.) when I was in England that's like, 120-150 USD. :blink: I'm glad that it was on sale. :lol:

Sharpe is such an awsome series! I'm going to watch one of the episodes tomorrow. ;) Another thing I liked about Sharpe was it's one role to where Sean doesn't die :D I agree with you Ladykate, Sean looks so HOT as Sharpe.
