Seen this about 3 times, best watching experience was in Japan in this little village called Tsu. I rented all the episodes on VHS and watched them sitting on a tatami eating dried tentacles from this really small TV, all the lights were out too of course. On the Bastogne episode I stuck my feet to a freezer to make the whole experience more real true story.

some times the special effects are a bit dodgy, but rarely, n then story line and acting more than makes up for it!

Mate lent me the boxset a while back. Absolutely amazing viewing, well recommended.

Is it just me, or watching David Schwimmer try to be serious in the first episode is just so funny, I just keep thinking "Ross Gellar, Ross Gellar"
:D

"After the acclaimed success of the HBO miniseries "Band of Brothers," Tom Hanks and his Playtone producing partner-in-war Gary Goetzman are reuniting with - guess who - Steven Spielberg to produce a new World War II dramatic miniseries, this time set in the Pacific Theater. Tentatively dubbed "Untitled World War II Pacific Theater Project," the DreamWorks project will focus on a battalion of soldiers, following them through the island-to-island assault on the Japanese, which culminated in the Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Unlike "Band of Brothers," which was based on Stephen Ambrose's bestseller, which chronicled the506 th Airborne Regiment after their landing in France on D-Day, the trio's newest project will be an original work. Bruce McKenna, recipient of the Writers Guild of America award for work on several "Band" episodes, is reportedly the frontrunner to take charge of the writing team."

This stuff was posted like 4 years ago though.

i'm not afraid to admit the documentry made me well up.

best series i've ever seen.
The documentary in the dvd extra's?
Im yet to watch that.

The series really puts d-day in perspective for me. Even though it only focus's on the airbourne infantry, its just amazingly filmed. From the fields in england preparing their chutes, to the thousands of men dropping form the skys above normandy.

Jaw dropping stuff.
