Band of Brothers was a great HBO miniseries from 2002. Plenty of action…maybe almost too much. In the series you follow the men of Easy Company from the start of boot camp to the end of WWII. The series from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks is a great HBO miniseries. It is an intense take on war. The first time I watched it was a moving experience. It’s a show you are not going to miss. It was nominated for 19 Emmy® Awards. There are ten episodes plus an 80-min. documentary. Band of Brothers is also available on Blu-Ray: Band of Brothers [Blu-ray]
