  • A nice story.

    9.0
    This is an excellent example of the stories that could be made in this series if they wanted to squeeze a few more episodes in. A rather brief chapter in the book, it is made into a nice tale that builds on several of the characters. Although we see, no matter how awkward he tries to make it, Ioan’s Horatio is much smoother with the women than the literary Horatio. It also gives the writers the opportunity to show Hornblower as at least open to the idea of Republicanism, instead of the completely gung-ho royalist that we see in the books.moreless
