    I really enjoyed the first installments as well. That's good news.

    A quick bump to remind everyone about tomorrow and Wednesday evening showings.

    I plan on watching both of these...HH is great. I have even heard some say better than Master and Commander.

    Review

    Well I enjoyed that.

    Not to sure about the wife though, and from the look on his face neither is he. Good to see Mr Bush is his usual charming self.

    Anyone else watch last night??? This was my first Horatio experience...mainly due to all of the positive stuff I've been hearing about it recently.

    All in all, I'm quite impressed. Ioan makes a great lead, good dialogue and it kept my attention, which is more than what I can say about most epics...

    The next part of the series airs tonight, right?

    Horatio was great, as usual! My wife and I have been fans of this series for years and have them all on DVD. Can't wait to get this new set (with extras) and the next set of movies.

    I just wish A&E would put up pictures we fans can use as desktop wallpapers![​IMG]

    I guess commercials may vary from region to region, but I was kind of astonished to see Trevor Goddard's old Hoover commercial used in the middle of A&E's new Hornblower episode. Don't most commercials get retired after the "star" dies?

    I really liked watching these...Jim, if you have been watching for so long...what did you think about Horatio getting married at the end???


    also..where did you get the DVDs and do you know when the 2 new movies are going to be coming out?

    Loved the episodes. In some respects it's got a feel similar to an earlier series dealing with the career exploits of Richard Sharpe, only on water instead of land.

    BTW..wanted to add some bit of ratings that I found...thougth people might find them interesting:

    Have to say I did take it from someone else::

    "It was a ratings success, i think it took anywhere between 8- 12 million viewers an episode, and the highest rated shows take around 12-14m an episode. "

    But looks like it did pretty well to me.

    OH great...and thanks. Perhaps I will see if Netflix has those and netflix them...

    Beside Horatio being on sea not land...how do you compare the two?

    Overall, I was really impressed with the two that I saw. What was even more impressive is how each installment stands alone, in a sense. I mean, I missed the first several installments, but I still understood and enjoyed the last few that I saw.

    I'd be interested in buying the box set and seeing how Horatio grows throughout the whole thing.
