after not watching band of brothers in several years i decided to watch the series again. it is without doubt the most powerful and well told story ever to be aired on tv, in my mind at least. i thought it really captures wwii, and how terrifying war was
HBO is coming out with a new WWII series, The Pacific. Like band of brothers, its produced by tom hanks and steven spielberg. its about marines fighting the japs on the pacific front and its supposed to be the most expensive production in tv history
it wasnt so much about the action as it was the power and realism of the show that made it sooooooo good. seeing someone like LT buck compton be removed from the war efforts because he saw two close friends each with a leg blown off was moving
If you loved B.O.B, please please please read the book it is based on, Band of Brothers by Stephen E. Ambrose....it is a wayyy more in depth look into the wartime experiences of the men of easy company.
What is your favorite episode? For me, and for the sheer power of the battle scenes, I'd have to say Carentan, Bastogne, or the one where they make their assault on Foy where Lieutenant Dyke totally loses it. For the sheer beauty of the setting, I'd say the last 2 episodes where they are in Austria and Germany, especially the episode where they are on the lake in Austria......fucking beautiful, I would so live there.
Do you have any idea what would happen to paper if you put it in a furnace? you would RUIN it!
i was a huge pusher of band of brothers back in the day, bought it the day it came out on DVD. ill have to pick up HBO for this. i have high hopes, i hope it compares.
on Biggie vs Lil Wayne - "the problem is that you asked a question that had an extremely predictable answer, making it pointless. Its like asking: would you rather fuck a hot chick or get savagely raped by Hulk Hogan? pointless question" (TZP)
"and this is coming from a guy who eats more pussy than food" (crazyfuck)
I read the book too and I completely agree. The show was amazing but it doesn't even compare to the book. There were so many more characters and events that weren't even shown in the series. Everybody needs to read the book
On another note I've been waiting for this show for a while. It looks good, hopefully It'll be what I expect.
I am personally extremely excited about this. BoB is hands down the greatest mini-series ever produced IMO and I have watched it probably 10 times since buying the collector tin.
I really hope that Hanks and Speilberg keep the same vibe going. BoB is truly epic so I am expecting great things from this series. Hopefully it can live up to the expectations of all the BoB fans out there.

same. nothing like a chill day watching America's finest fuck up some Nazi's and then act emotional so you know they are actual people outside of the action.
easily my favorite film/show of all time and hearing that something just like it is going to come out again makes my day.
