In 1942, men from across the USA are in Camp Toccoa, Georgia to undergo paratrooper training. For the men of 'E' Easy Company the training is particularly difficult as a result of their demanding commander, Captain Herbert Sobel. He drives them incessantly to excel, canceling their weekend passes on a whim. His favorite chore is to have the men undertake a run up a hill known as Currahee. While the men are fit and ready for battle, thanks to Sobel, he has unfortunately shown himself to be a weak tactical commander. Once in England, and knowing they will soon be invading the Continent, the sergeants stage a rebellion. Sobel's excesses come to an end when Lt. Dick Winters requests a court martial rather than accept punishment for one of Sobel's lame charges. Written by garykmcd

Doesn't live up to it's title
17 September 2015 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

I wonder if the other reviewers saw the same episode I did. From a mini-series called "Band of Brothers" I expect just that. I expect character development and brotherhood to be the focus. Yet in the first episode the only character with any kind of development is Captain Sobel and I'm not even sure he will be that important during the rest of the series. Still, the production value is obviously very good and I know there are a lot of good actors in here so I suppose the stage is set but they'll have to do a lot better in the next episode to convince me that this is indeed a band of brothers. (Now just to type an extra line of text to make sure I have the minimum required for IMDb)
