I caught a couple of clips from this show on YouTube and decided after several false starts that it was time to watch this. This is a story of a group of ordinary men who did extraordinary things. It's a story of war brought down to the level of the individual. Not all were heroic or courageous. Some were deeply flawed and not suited to the situation they found themselves in. Others found themselves damaged either physically or psychologically or both. This is the story of their humanity and how it was strained to the breaking point and beyond. In a word, it was brilliant.

HBO can be proud of the work Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg did on "Band of Brothers". Tom Hanks actually directs one of the episodes. You will witness the incredible bravery of our troops. They fought at times short on food, ammunition and winter cloths. You will see the actual history of "Easy Company". All the way from Normandy to the end of World War II. I am amazed at the reality of the sets. There probably isn't a better series on World War II!! I can't help but thanking all the men who served in that historic war!

One of my favorite movies. Even my daughter, who does not like war movies, watched every single episode.

This is like a 10 hour long Saving Private Ryan with more character development. I really enjoyed every episode, including the introduction by the actual veterans. Top quality writing, acting and special effects. There really is nothing to dislike unless you do not like the war genre.

I love good war movies, and this is a great one. Damien Lewis (now starring in NBC's "Life") is incredible; worth watching just for his performance alone. OOooo -
might be time to borrow it again!
