Storyline

In the very early hours of the D-Day invasion, Easy Company along with thousands of other Allied paratroopers land behind enemy lines in Normandy. In the chaos of the jump however, they are spread far and wide with many landing far from their expected drop zone. Lt. Winters assembles the few men they can find and slowly make their way to their rendezvous point. As the men straggle in, they also must adjust such as when Malarkey meets a German soldier who grew up in Oregon. Easy's Company commander is still missing so Winters is left in charge and is ordered to take out a German artillery bunker that is wreaking havoc with the troops landing on the beach. They do so with great efficiency and are rewarded with several Bronze and Silver Stars and the Distinguished Service Cross for Winters. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

After Lt Winters tells Sgt Guarnere, "Sergeant, I'm not a Quaker!" and then leaves to a burst of laughter, Guarnere comments, "Being from Lancaster County, he's probably a Mennonite." In his memoirs, written a few years after the release of this miniseries, Winters mentions that his ancestry actually was Mennonite although his immediate family were not firm practitioners of the religion.

Goofs

When the soldier that Lt. Winters is with talks about losing his radio and then getting chewed out by his commanding officer. Lt. Winters says: "Well if you were in my platoon, I would say you are a rifleman first and a radioman second." The soldier is in question happens to be carrying a Thompson Submachinegun and not an M1 Garrand or an M1 carbine, but "rifleman" is a generic term for any infantryman regardless of his assigned weapon system. Winters would have made the same statement if the soldier had been carrying a machine gun. See more »

Band Of Brothers

Band Of Brothers is a character driven mini-series that is at best, precisely and probably an almost documentary but with a taste of theatrical that might easily leaves the viewers' pallet shook.

First and foremost the credit does and should go to the research team that offers an unforgettable experience to the viewers of the field work on an ongoing battle.

Despite of having such a wider range and scale the makers wisely makes a choice on narrowing down the priorities to the theme of "nature" where each part of it (there are 10 chapters), plays and projects a vital side.

The adaptation of Ambrose's novel is smart, exquisite and brimming with writhing emotions where the rest of the work is left up to execution which is undeniably excellent; the quality surpasses one's usual feature.

The series is also emotionally fueled where the manipulated audience finds itself on the melted side of the aisle with a cathartic energy that pumps up the heartbeat.

If the camera work is beautiful with some appealing live locations then it also has some brutal and inedible sequences where the art designers have done a tremendous work.

It is rich on technical aspects like metaphorical cinematography, stunning and cringe-worthy visuals, sharp sound effects, behemoth production designs, accurate costume designs and again the choreography of each battle sequences; all blends in and rains on the audience leaving them breathless.

The cast too have invested all their chips in which pays well, especially Lewis and Levingston. The chemistry among the characters, makers' non-biased world and the awareness of each and every details are the high points of this mini-series.

Band Of Brothers is a brief anthology of the horrendous symphony that nature is along with the repercussions that it ought not but inevitably breeds.

Day Of Days

It completely relies upon an objective that is basically of an "in and out" agenda but the choreography and the execution is exceptionally good in here that leaves the audience in an awe throughout the course of it.
