GoldI've seen all of these shows and movies except for Napoleon in Love (starring Bilbo Baggins). I would very much want to see a 100 episode series with epic battles, well written political intrigue, complex characters and good use of history. Though with Napoleon it would be extremely easy to do poorly, casting and writing would be a challenge. Honestly I think that if anyone were to write this wouldn't it be us? We just need someone with sufficient writing ability to flesh this out into an actual story and write compelling characters and appropriate dialogue.
Indeed the Christian Clavier series was pretty good, Clavier did surprisingly well as Napoleon. I have very minor nitpicks with his portrayal. On the whole I give him maybe 9/10 for his performance. The show also had more interesting political intrigue than it did battles, I actually wanted to see less battles and more intrigue. Just think how much more could have been squeezed in if this was 6 episode or 10 episodes instead of just 4. Now imagine 100 episodes!!! Too bad there probably isn't enough budget in the universe to make that happen. Well maybe France could produce this if they sold French Guiana, which would be completely worth it.
