Band of Brothers is one of the best TV shows–no, cinematic experiences–I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. I’ve always liked WW2 stories so I’m a little biased, but I think this is right up there with Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad in terms of thematic depth and gravitas, and seasons 1 of Lost, 24, and Dexter in terms of overall entertainment and watchability.
In Band of Brothers you follow the harrowing exploits of Easy Company of the 101st Airbourne Division from the beginning of bootcamp through the end of the war, and get a true-to-life re-enactment of what it was actually like to parachute into France on D-Day and fight your way into Germany as the Third Reich toppled.
There are so many good things to say about this show it’s hard to even know where to start, but here’s a quick summary:
Whether you have any particular interest in WW2 or not, Band of Brothers is one of those shows that everyone should enjoy.
