    I have never seen a war this real in movies or TV shows. Every detail has been shown as much as it deserves to...

    It is really hard for other war related pictures to compete with this one for showing reality.
  • Seriously incredible!

    I watched this with my husband, who is a big war history buff. This was a beautifully made mini-series that was terrifying and human and also funny. The directing was perfect and the acting was spot on. Nothing comes together better when you watch a full cast of extremely talented actors: Damian Lewis, Ron Livingston and Donnie Wahlberg. I enjoy WWII movies and television, but this was incredible!
  • The band of brothers is an amazing miniseries.

    The band of brothers is an amazing miniseries. I watched it on TV and then bought the DVDs and then bought the Blurays when they came out. The summary on the main page refers to Rescue me, not the Band of Brothers. This should be fixed.

  • Best of its kind!

    Band of Brothers is the best of the best when it comes to portraing war movies and shows in general. I think this show is one of the best series I've watched in my life.



    The show is about the ordeals of easy company during world war II. It's a story about sacrafice, friendship and the brutality and ruthlessness of war. I really like these kinds of shows were they show you the horrors of war and introduce you to characters you can have an emotional attachment to. Something you can only truely appreciate by the way when your favorite one dies.

    I know this show is a few years old by now but I just watched the whole thing again and I have to say that I still like it just as much when I first saw it. This show is the a legend. They can't make anything like this ever again. (They tried with the Pacific and although that was good too, it didn't have the same impact on people like Band of Brothers)moreless
