Name a better TV series than Hornblower.

I like both series and to be honest, I would be hard pressed to choose.

Damn right.  

 

Hornblower was Churchill’s preferred bedtime reading too, and I wonder sometimes how much of all those clandestine shore parties, cutting out operations and skulduggery informed Winston’s wartime taste for coastal raids and small unit actions.  

 

I recently introduced a work colleague to the Hornblower audiobooks narrated by Christian Rodska.  He’s currently blazing through the entire collection without a break.

If you like Hornblower, try the Sharpe TV series.

 

Sharpe (TV series) Sharpe is a British television series of stories 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.

BSG. Jamie Bamber has learned to act by then.

 

Also, Hornblower novels are ok, but a bit YA IMHO. Patrick O'Brian is where it's at for your authentic sea stories...

Please don't play it if you value you sanity. It's full of 8 year olds and although fun at times, is not worth the brain hemorrhage that accompanies it.
