Filmed on location throughout Europe, this "Masterpiece Theatre" favorite stars Sean Bean as maverick British officer Richard Sharpe, the swashbuckling hero of Bernard Cornwell's best-selling novels. Each collection captures the danger and sheer spectacle of the battle against Napoleon's forces in 19th-century Spain. Collection I features Pete Postlethwaite as Sgt. Obediah Hakeswill in "Sharpe's Rifles," "Sharpe's Company," "Sharpe's Enemy," and "Sharpe's Eagles." Collection I is 6-1/2 hours on 4 cassettes or 4 DVDs.
The first movie in this excellent series, we are introduced to Richard Sharpe and see him rise from Sergeant to Lieutenant during the Napoleonic War and the struggle this entails. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Kevin Brown
Having read the entire Shape's series, I have enjoyed the adaptations. They don't rank with the detail of the books or the character development, but Bean makes the role work.Published 13 months ago by Kevin E. Martin

This is the video that started the Sharpes saga on BBC.
Sean Bean is excellent as Richard Sharpe and the supporting cast was well put together.
First off its the only time you won't see Sean Bean die on film which is some kind of minor miracle or violation of the cosmic order depending on your perspective. Read morePublished on November 27, 2012 by Phil M

|Closed Captioning on Sharpe's series||
I thought all DVDs were " CC ", I feel cheated even though the show looked very promising , I won't buy any more.

|Are these Sharpe sets digitally remastered or widescreened?||
Does this product (Sharpe's series) have CC or Subtitles or SHD?
