Superb series, simply the best film set in WW2 that I have ever seen
on 25 January 2018
This is an absolutely brilliant series, I watch it every 3-4 years.
The acting, screenplay and overall filming is simply excellent.
I think what separates this from just a great film set in WW2:
- it is based on true stories of the members of Easy Company;
- it follows them from joining up through to the war's end
- I especially enjoyed the "talking head" shots and reminiscences presented at the start of each episode,
- Towards the end of the last episode, the post-war life and careers of some of the key characters are summarised as a voice over. For me this really brought home the reality of what they had experienced together, and that this was fundamentally about real men and their lives.
