    • Another GREAT British show.

      One of my favorite TV series. The British are just the best when it comes to war related series such as Sharpe, Reilly: Ace of Spies and Ivenhoe. Horatio Horblower is no exception to the rule. Horatio Hornblower (portrayed by Ioan Gruffudd) tells the story of a 17 years old officer in the British Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Hornblower joins the Royal Navy as a shy and lacking self confidence midshipman and rises through the ranks slowly throughout the series while his character develops accordingly. Other than Ioan Gruffudd, who was an excellent choice for the role of Hornblower, the cast includes the amazing Jamie Bamber and the very talented Robert Lindsay. I strongly recommend this series to those of you that enjoy historical war series.moreless
    • I loved this series and thought Ioan Gruffudd was wonderful as the lead. When will it be back?

      This series was not part of my normal viewing genre, but I loved it and miss it. Now that Ioan Gruffudd has moved on to Hollywood, will this series be back? He was SO incredibly hot as Horatio Hornblower. Can't believe he married that girl! He doesn't even love her.

    • A Great Show with Great Brittish Actors. Stays 100% true to the books

      A Show or a Movie dividet into a lot of episodes based on the books by C. S. Forester (7 total) The Plot is The new Young recruit Horatio Hornblower who comes in from nowhere and makes great succes in the Navy, Cronoligically correct and 100% true to the books.

      The Actors Is renowed brittish actor including Ioan Gruffud who has a small part in Titanic and William Bush Known from the Sitcom My Family. About the tecnical approuch it is like you have read in the book and really dosnt let you down if you have read the books on beforehands

      this is a great show!moreless
    • I am 100% grateful for my discovery of the Horatio Hornblower series.

      Horatio Hornblower embodies things that many people today have forgot about: honor, fellowship, and duty. I am quite honored to have had the opportunity to see these movies and I really want to read the books now. I really hope that they will continue to make more of the stories into movies. It is more possible than not, since Ioan has been quoted to have said, "I would love to play this character through every stage of his life. I think it would be unique to have an actor playing him from the very early days as a midshipman; through till he's an Admiral. So, I would love to play this character till he perishes." All fans of this series (both book and movies) should pray for a return soon. I don't know about others, but I really need to see how Horatio handles his next adventure (reference to the last scene of Duty).

      One quick word about Ioan...perfect actor for Horatio. Many thanks to those that cast him.

      Lastly, I want to urge everyone to watch all these movies. thank youmoreless
