  • 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.
