Based on a fictional hero (created by C.S. Forester) of the British Royal Navy before and during the Napoleonic Wars, this A&E series (available on DVD and netflix) seems like an old-men-only kind of thing. It is, however, surprisingly entertaining, exciting and… well it stars Ioan Gruffudd. I'm not the only one who thinks so, see these weird fan pages. Anyone interested in the Hornblower United States Convention?
