Band of Brothers is the best series about WWII. You follow the adventures of the Easy Company of the Airborne Paratroopers from the moment they are trained to the capture of the Eagle's Nest where Hitler was hiding. The casting is top notch. Damian Lewis serves as the anchor point in the role of Dick Winters, the leader of Easycompagnie. There are also good roles from Scott Grimes, Neal McDonough and also Donnie Wahlberg who shows that he is a much better actor than brother Marky Mark.

Finally seen in full. Which finally refers to the fact that I kept giving up during the first episodes. Also this time I liked this one the least. Especially monotonous. As the series progresses, some things happen other than shooting back and forth all the time. You start to see more of the human side, how people have suffered, what they are going to do after the war, how it has changed them. Band of Brothers certainly looks realistic but especially in the first episodes it is too repetitive. The highlight for me was definitely episode 9. Very strong how degrading those labor camps were.

A lot of people think this is the best show/movie they've seen about the war, for me it doesn't come close to movies like Schindler's List, The Pianist, Hacksaw Ridge, A Bag of Marbles, As far as my feet will carry me, ... Check out The Pacific in a while.

The very best WW2 series. Only seen now thanks to the HBOmax offer.

Script, direction, camera work, sets, actors and so on were top notch.

You will be sucked into the series.

What a respect for all those boys who committed and gave their lives for our freedom.

You get sympathy and empathize with the boys. Well done. Although a bit too sentimental at times, it doesn't bother me.

The real "brothers" at the beginning of an episode make it clear that these guys are heroes without pretending to be.
