    AMAZING! It's a must see. I got the series on DVD and I've watched it countless of times. Even though I know the episodes insideout, I'm still amazed every time I watch it.

    I absolutely love the quote;
    "-Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?
    -Grandpa said no...but I served in a company of heroes"

    I could rant on and on about the beauty of this series – the thrilling quality, the exceptional characterization, the breathtaking cinematography and score, the story, the emotions, the reality, the deftness. I could list scene after scene of masterful directing and acting. But here, I will revel in its themes and people, in its aspirations and history.

    Here are the men of Easy Company, 506th PIR, World War II. The characters are real persons in history; don’t forget that. It what makes the series so special. They are real, this did happen. This is not just another war movie. Indeed, can it be called so generally a “war movie”? It defies such genre terms. This has such depth, such meaning. There is no music in the action scenes. No; such horrors are not something to from which to elicit orchestrated excitement. This is war, life and death. This is serious.

    Here is the brotherhood, the trauma, the delight, the pain of a select few of soldiers, a tried and true “band of brothers.” Nothing is held back. We see death and feel injustice. We are given the bare, unedited facts of cruelty and sorrow in the war. Yet we are also shown strength and honor, camaraderie and leadership, a certain beauty inherent in that same action. We see life’s two sides and realize the terror was, yes, somehow worth it in the end.

    There are many themes; each show explores a different moving motion. There is quality beyond description. I can’t even imagine that these are actors. No; these are such real people, down to the dirt on their fingernails and the quiet, fearful honesty that is portrayed on some level by each.

    I owe a great debt to this series. Its careful adherence to historical accuracy has broadened my knowledge immensely. Its beautiful rendition of character and orchestration has elevated my soul to heights of inspiration and delight. It has introduced me to people I will never forget. It has shown me reality; it has shown me beauty. I have been immersed in an experience worth knowing, in character worth emulating, and I will treasure the time I have spent in its presence.
