The various editions of this miniseries are marketed in a very confusing manner.
Some promoted as "Sharp's Collection" do not have the entire miniseries included, you have to carefully read the description, runtime and number of disks included.
Sharp's Rifle Collection Set(2005) is listed as having 5 discs, but a runtime of 102 minutes. - $149.95
Sharp's Complete Series is listed as having 15 films and 8 DVD boxes with a runtime of 25 HOURS - $50.88 ???
The second one doesn't matter because it is in PAL (European) format and won't play on a North American DVD player.
I'm not sure why it is even listed.
Many of the box covers are very similar in appearance, its hard to tell by looking at it on screen.
I don't think it is intentional, but its probably something they don't want to fix.
I wanted to buy the entire series for my wife and found the DVD set for $195.00
After some searching I was able to find the Bluray for $229.50, expensive but better than DVD.
It also had a reproduction map, pewter letter opener and behind the scenes discs.
With shipping and exchange rate, the total was $352.33.
Yesterday I found the DVD Set, runtime 25 hours at Costco in Ontario Canada for $50.00.
I don't think the Bluray edition /Letter opener/ fold out Map/behind the scenes discs are worth $179.00 (no shipping or exchange rate).
I think I will return this.

I had originally bought the set on tape. Took up too much room. Laying out over $200 for something I already had shows what I thought of the collection.Published 3 months ago by Herbert Reichlin
I get tired of Sharpe having to get involved with a woman in every episode but overall enjoy the series. This picture on this copy is a bit more soft focus than I like though.Published 6 months ago by H. Johnson
