Storyline

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 garykmcd

Trivia

The series was screened at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, in August of 2001 to members of the 101st Airborne Division just a few weeks before the attacks of September 11, 2001. Several characters from the film, and the actors who portrayed them, including William Guarnere, C. Carwood Lipton, and Donald Malarkey, met with soldiers who were serving in the "Screaming Eagles" at the time. Guarnere even danced the Jitterbug, despite only having one leg. Eighteen months later, the 101st deployed and participated in the invasion of Iraq. See more »

Quotes

Cpt. Nixon: What do you think about New Jersey?
Richard Winters: New Jersey?
Cpt. Nixon: There's a company in Nixon, New Jersey. It's called Nixon Nitration Works.
Richard Winters: Sounds picturesque.
Cpt. Nixon: Yeah, well, oddly enough, I know the owners. Probably gonna expect me to make something of myself. I thought maybe I'd drag you along with me.
Richard Winters: Are you offering me a job?
Cpt. Nixon: We'll see how you do on your interview, but, you know, a man of your qualifications... I think probably scrape something up commensurate with your current salary level.

This series is so unbelievably realistic, so authentic.
17 September 2004 | by (Tessenderlo, Belgium) – See all my reviews

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!!!!
