Horatio Hornblower (8 tv items)

"Also called The Wrong War in the US release. Apparently Frogs are the French dudes and Lobsters are the British dudes. I'm not sure what this one was about but somehow the French Revolution has something to do with it and Horatio meets the (first) true love of his life. Once again it's up to him to be the man."
