Series Overview
When Saving Private Ryan stormed the cinemas, very much like Tom Hanks stormed Omaha beach in the movie, the war genre changed forever. Band Of Brothers, co-produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks who brought us Saving Private Ryan, and based on the best selling book by Stephen E. Ambrose, is a ten part mini series which follows "Easy Company", 2nd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, of the 101st Airborne Division. The series begins with Easy company awaiting their orders to embark on D-Day, with a flashback to their training in America, and then follows their ups, downs, grief and joy throughout the remainder of the war. The cast were chosen by their resemblance of the actual members of Easy company that they were to portray for their roles. The actors spent time with the survivors and family members of the deceased, so that they could get to know their characters and portray them with the respect that they deserved. It is a star studded cast, but many of which at the time (Tom Hardy, Michael Fassbender and Stephen Graham to name a few) were relative unknowns. British actor, Damian Lewis, plays Major Richard "Dick" Winters who is the main focal character of the series. The show focuses on how Winters, a quiet and humble man, slowly earns the trust of his men and rises through the ranks for his leadership skills. The battle scenes have just the same intensity that Saving Private Ryan does, as the same camera mode was used which allows the viewer to feel they are actually on ground zero with the men as the blood and dirt splatters the lenses. Before each episode, there are interviews with some of the surviving members of easy company, who tell their memories of the events that are portrayed in the episode. This acts as a timely reminder that these men, fought and somehow survived the brutality of war. None are named until the end of the last episode so not to give away which characters make it through the war. I have watched this series dozens of times and it never fails to leave an impression on me. The horror of war, the bond amongst the men, the honour and humbleness these veterans have. It is a truly remarkable story which is brilliantly told and with so much respect for those that didn't go home. Band Of Brothers was, and still is ground-breaking, and for me, is the pinnacle of all TV shows. Currahee!
