My neighbour mark very kindly let me watch the concluding part of Sharpe on his TV this evening. There are very few things on television worth watching these days, which is part of the reason I do not have a telly at uni, but I’m a fan of sharpe. He is a man who rose from the ranks, one of us normal people who made it. I loved the original, butI was very surprised when they chose to resurrect the series given its age. Perhaps Boromir’s line in FOTR that the shards of narsil were ”still shaarp” was a hint, although given that film was made 6 years ago, I doubt it. Still, it makes you wonder.
