ITV 1993

Sharpe is a British series of television dramas starring Sean Bean as Richard Sharpe, a fictional British soldier in the Napoleonic Wars. Sharpe is the hero of a number of novels by Bernard Cornwell; most, though not all, of the episodes are based on the books. Produced by Celtic Films and Picture Palace Films for the ITV network, the series was shot mainly in Turkey and the Crimea, although some filming was also done in England, Spain and Portugal.The series originally ran from 1993 to 1997. In 2004, as part of ITV's new set of drama, ITV announced that it intended to produce new episodes of Sharpe, in co-production with BBC America, loosely based on his time in India, with Sean Bean continuing his role as Sharpe. Sharpe's Challenge is a two-part adventure; part one premiered on ITV on 23 April 2006, with part two being shown the following night. With more gore than earlier episodes, the show was broadcast by BBC America in September 2006.

    This show is just so good. It does feel a lot older than it is but it makes up for it with superb and loveable characters. I don’t know what it is but the show has a certain charm to it that just reels you in and keeps you wanting more. You can’t help but love Sharpe and his merry band of men, almost like a colonial soldiers version of Indiana Jones and friends.


    I like period shows and historical fiction. This is not awful but at the same time not that great either. Looks and feels about 10 years older than it actually is. And I don't know if I should call this a romantic adventure or an adventures romance. It is more worth watching for the cast than the stories. Those are rather predictable and repetitive. But maybe, at the time this aired, with all the medical and legal dramas it was more special than today.

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
