'Band of Brothers' is the finest TV series I have ever seen. A bold statement maybe, but one that stands up to scrutiny in my opinion. Yes, 'The Sopranos' is a brilliant drama and '24' is a top-class thriller, but 'B.O.B' just has that epic feel, that you are watching something that might never be repeated or certainly bettered. The story of the men of Easy Company of the 101st Airborne is one that deserves telling; these heavily-trained young soldiers suffered on the front line of the majority of the crucial battles during the American involvement in World War 2. They forged an unusually tight bond with each other and were led by some of the finest soldiers of the war. It could also be justifiably said that they, as a company, sacrificed more than the usual.
The ten-part series consists of hour-long forays in to the viewpoint of different soldier's experiences, from a major to a medic. The action is superbly visceral and realistic, using the same shaky, hand-held camera techniques seen in 'Saving Private Ryan,' to which B.O.B is a close relative, sharing the Spielberg/Hanks connection as well as the subject matter. Action aside however, it is the depth of characterisation that sets this series apart. Granted, the running time allows for this, but it is beautifully done nonetheless. We gain a real insight into many of the men's characters, from the joker George Luz to the bitter Sobel, the cynic Nixon to the dignified Winters. Indeed, these two characters are so finely crafted it is easy to forget that these actors are not in fact the real men. British star Damian Lewis is outstanding as Major Richard Winters, the glue that holds 'Easy' together.

I was forced into watching this by a friend and only really agreed because i'm a Damian Lewis fan but i now have to admit that it was absolutely superb! I cannot criticise any aspect of this programme. I genuinely felt like I knew the characters and, as the end was approaching and casualties were amassing, I desperately wanted the 'brothers' to make it through. The scenery was so realistic that it could easily have been war-torn Europe in the 1940's.
As someone who doesn't generally like war films I can honestly say that this isn't typical of the genre as it is character based rather than just a stream of special effects laden scenes (although there are some amazing special effects). A particularly unique feature is that the surviving members of 'Easy Company' introduce each episode, as the entire story is based on real events. Spielburg even had the forethoughht to not inform the audience of the identity of the veterans until the end so that we wouldn't know who lived or died.
This programme reminds us of what normal men did for their countries and the world and I think 'B.o.B' shows us that we should never forget what those heroes endured for us all.
'Band of Brothers' is truly poignant and moving, a credit to the excellent cast and crew (and not forgetting the real men of 'Easy Company'), and I cannot recommend this highly enough.

As a Brit, I watched the first episode of Band of Brothers just expecting another pro-American, Hollywood-made war series, but got something very different. An un-biased series following a troop of American para-troopers, this is quite a moving, yet eye-opening insight into what these normal men achieved in breaking down Nazi Germany. After buying the DVD (which I had wanted ever since seeing the series) and watching it over and over again, it becomes even clearer, the detail and effort put into the series by the superb Steven Spielberg, and Tom Hanks, who I am starting to admire as a director . You really start to feel for the men of Easy Company, and by the end of the series, Band of Brothers will mean much more than just a title...

Band of Brothers, is just the perfect series having to do with World War II. Produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, directed by Phil Alden Robinson ("The sum of all fears") and Richard Loncraine ("Gathering storm"), starring Damian Lewis ("Dreamcatcher") and Ron Livingston ("Office Space"), this is the ultimate dvd for your collection.
It is the story of Easy Company of the 101st Airborne of the United States Army, and their amazing achievemnts between 1942 and 1944, in other words until the fall of Nazi Germany.
The series are based on the excellent book by Stephen Ambrose, and will remind you a lot "Saving Private Ryan". In the box set, you will find six discs, the five first of which contain ten episodes, which are the following:
1) Currahee
2) Day of days
3) Carentan
4) Replacements
5) Crossroads
6) Bastogne
7) The breaking point
8) The patrol
9) Why we fight
10) Points
The last disc, contains all the extras: a) an eighty - minute documentary named "We stand alone together", b) "making of" (thirty minutes), c) a TV spot for car company Jeep, and d) a very interseting "who is who" section".
Movie: 5/5
Extras: 5/5
Sound (Dolby 5.1): 5/5
Picture (1.78:1 widescreen): 5/5
Overall: 5/5
I would absolutely recommend you this dvd. Very nice, -and with historic importance- selection for your collection. Buy it!
