A hero with a rough edge

Four esisodes first shown in the US on Masterpiece Theater. A gritty tale of Sgt. Richard Sharpe and his rise from the ranks to the title of officer. It is a fine adaption and actually more watchable then Mr. Cornwells books are readable. It is dirty gritty and that dirt and grit makes it real. You also fine performances from Bean and O'Malley (and particualrly Pete Postlethwaite as his arch foe in episodes 3 & 4). Our first glimpse of Ducos is also a winner. (you may notice much of the same crowd with DiNero in RONIN.) A definate winner!

If there is anything to complain about in episode (Sharpe's Eagle) the scene leading to the fist fight between Sharpe and Berry is cut. It makes me wonder if we are missing anything else. Beyond that great!
