It's a cold, harsh Christmas 1944 for the men of Easy Company as they try to hold the line around Bastogne against attacking German forces. They have no winter clothing, limited rations and little ammunition. For Eugene Rowe, one of the medics, the problem is getting basic medical supplies. He's been scrounging what he can, but it simply isn't enough. He's managed to get supplies from a pretty French nurse in Bastogne, Renee, but as the casualties mount, he finds himself lacking even the most basic supplies. The men of Easy Company are left on their own much of the time as the Company commander, Lt. Dike, spends most of his in his foxhole. Written by garykmcd

Although set in a wintry forest outside of the Belgian town of Bastogne, the entire episode was shot on a soundstage in England. See more »


In the discussion between Doc Roe and Renée they first address each other with the formal and polite second person plural 'vous'. When they ask each others names Doc Roe shifts to using the informal first person singular 'tu' and 'toi'. When Doc Roe departs Renée speaks to him as 'vous' again. This would be unusual between two young people, who are on friendly terms with each other, and have already told their first names to each other. See more »

Band Of Brothers

Band Of Brothers is a character driven mini-series that is at best, precisely and probably an almost documentary but with a taste of theatrical that might easily leaves the viewers' pallet shook.

First and foremost the credit does and should go to the research team that offers an unforgettable experience to the viewers of the field work on an ongoing battle.

Despite of having such a wider range and scale the makers wisely makes a choice on narrowing down the priorities to the theme of "nature" where each part of it (there are 10 chapters), plays and projects a vital side.

The adaptation of Ambrose's novel is smart, exquisite and brimming with writhing emotions where the rest of the work is left up to execution which is undeniably excellent; the quality surpasses one's usual feature.

The series is also emotionally fueled where the manipulated audience finds itself on the melted side of the aisle with a cathartic energy that pumps up the heartbeat.

If the camera work is beautiful with some appealing live locations then it also has some brutal and inedible sequences where the art designers have done a tremendous work.

It is rich on technical aspects like metaphorical cinematography, stunning and cringe-worthy visuals, sharp sound effects, behemoth production designs, accurate costume designs and again the choreography of each battle sequences; all blends in and rains on the audience leaving them breathless.

The cast too have invested all their chips in which pays well, especially Lewis and Levingston. The chemistry among the characters, makers' non-biased world and the awareness of each and every details are the high points of this mini-series.

Band Of Brothers is a brief anthology of the horrendous symphony that nature is along with the repercussions that it ought not but inevitably breeds.


The horrific tone that was teased in the previous episode, in here is full of it that easily chills down the spine when encountering and addition to that there is also a decent mellow conversation which was unexpected in this series.
