Band of Brothers was one of the AFI’s best shows for 2001.
Episode watched: Pilot
Seen before? No
Would I keep watching? No
It’s not that Band of Brothers was bad because it wasn’t. The cast is wonderful (Damian Lewis, especially…and Lewis is all over the AFI’s Best TV list) but I am not a fan of war movies. And that apparently extends to “war miniseries,” too. Too bad I have so many to get through.
Anyway. This show follows the soldiers in Easy Company during their basic training and deployment. They’re in the Atlantic theater of World War II. (David Schwimmer is one of their commanding officers and he is such an asshole. I would never have believed Ross would act that way!)
Another concern is that I watched this on Spike TV. I’m sure a lot of things were edited, so I’m not sure what I missed. (Probably a ton of language, at the very least.)
