Fortunately, somebody wrote a review stating it was possible by downloading a free Video Lan Client (VLC) software from the internet and I could just Google it, which I did. It's available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, so I did and then ordered the complete series. I can now watch them all on my laptop, just the way they were meant to be seen originally.
I bought the US versions (all 14 of them) and found that the picture quality was washed out and the sound was irritating to say the least. Well, I finally decided to buy the British (remastered) version and what a difference. This version (region 2) is incredible. The colour and sound are so much better. Region Free player is a necessity but well worth the money if you love British TV series!
They came packaged very well. We just had to change our DVD Player on his computer to the proper region to view it and we were good to go.
As far as the series, it's a very great historical series. I got it for my husband, who is a historian. I didn't think I'd really like it at all. But I was wrong. I absolutely love it. "Over the hills" will be stuck in your head! :)
The story is very compelling folioing the rise of a common soldier up from the ranks to become an officer in the British army of the early 1800's. Each episode corresponds to an actual battle of the period. Richard Sharpe is a real action hero of the times. Sean Bean plays the character to perfection. The production is very high quality. The supporting cast is great. The action and battle scenes show the horrors of war at that period very realistically. Development of the characters adds to the enjoyment of the series.
I have started to read the book series by Bernard Cornwell. There are over 20 books in the series encompassing a wider length of Sharpe’s career and adventures.
For history, military history and gun history I highly recommend the books and the DVD’s.
