Easy Company remains in the Ardennes Forest preparing for an inevitable attack on German forces in the town of Foy. However, morale is low due to cold weather, constant shelling, poor leadership, and...
Five hundred years in the future, a renegade crew aboard a small spacecraft tries to survive as they travel the unknown parts of the galaxy and evade warring factions as well as authority agents out to get them.
This is the story of "E" Easy Company, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division from their initial training starting in 1942 to the end of World War II. They parachuted behind enemy lines in the early hours of D-Day in support of the landings at Utah beach, participated in the liberation of Carentan and again parachuted into action during Operation Market Garden. They also liberated a concentration camp and were the first to enter Hitler's mountain retreat in Berchtesgaden. A fascinating tale of comradeship that is, in the end, a tale of ordinary men who did extraordinary things.Written by
According to James Madio, during the boot camp preparations actors had to refer to each other by their character's names, including addressing them by the proper rank. See more »
In the episode where Easy is rescuing the British soldiers, Bull Randelman is seen in the extreme foreground. He is in a boat paddling along with the rest of the soldiers, but he does not have a paddle in his hands. See more »
Lieb, I fucking hate this.
Oh, Jesus Christ. They fingered him! I was in the fucking room, Web! One of those Polacks what was in the slave camps said this is where the guy lives, right here.

Whatever camp! I'm under direct orders and I'm happy to follow them!

Is this a personal thing, Joe?
Is this personal to you?
No, it's a goddamn order.

When shown on the BBC, the series was initially run with the first two episodes edited together. This meant that the opening titles were changed to account for two directors and two different writers. The Veterans' interviews for Episode 2 (Day of Days) were moved to the end of the episode before the end credits. In the programme itself, the scene with Winters sitting in the doorway gazing out at the air armada flying into Normandy is smoothly blended into the 'flying clouds' sequence that begins Episode 2 (which is much shorter).

This series is so unbelievably realistic, so authentic.
There aren't much TV-series which have left such an impression on me as Band of Brothers did. From the moment I saw the first episodes, I knew I had to buy this on DVD.
This series, telling you the story of Easy Company of the US Army Airbourne Paratrooper division is so unbelievably realistic, so authentic... There has been put so much effort in taking care of all the details that it makes you believe that you are right in the middle of all the action. This is an outstanding achievement. It's about ten hours long, but I wouldn't mind if it was a few hours longer.
Each episode opens with interviews with several of the actual men from Easy Company, talking about some of the experiences that that episode deals with. When you buy the special edition DVD box (a metal case with 6 instead of 5 DVD's), you will find the complete interviews with these men on the extra DVD. These interviews certainly aren't to be missed!
As you may have guessed, I'm one of the biggest fans of this series. I could go on for hours about it, but our time is limited and instead of reading this you better watch the series yourself. According to me, there is only one score appropriate for a masterpiece like this one and that is 10/10. Amazing!!!!
