Drawn from interviews with survivors of Easy Company, as well as their journals and letters, Band of Brothers chronicles the experiences of these men from paratrooper training in Georgia through the end of the war. As an elite rifle company parachuting into Normandy early on D-Day morning, participants in the Battle of the Bulge, and witness to the horrors of war, the men of Easy knew extraordinary bravery and extraordinary fear - and became the stuff of legend. Based on Stephen E. Ambrose's acclaimed book of the same name.

Co-produced by Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, the award-winning series features Damian Lewis, James McAvoy and Simon Pegg.


Excellent series.

Great series and release! blu-ray.com 5/5 video review notes :

""Band of Brothers" arrives on Blu-ray with what is nothing short of a spectacular 1080p, 1.78:1-framed image that offers a significant upgrade over the previous DVD release. Certainly, viewers in search of nothing short of grain-free, brightly colored high definition eye candy will be sorely disappointed with this release. "Band of Brothers" is nevertheless eye candy of its own variety, offering a natural, as-intended look that lends a harsh, gritty, desaturated look to set the mood and period of the series from a visual perspective. Much of "Band of Brothers" is devoid of bright primary colors. Awash in greens, browns, tans, grays, and blacks, the color scheme lends to the film a throwback look that has seemingly become the de facto presentation for World War II movies; a practically identical look was chosen for Saving Private Ryan, and perhaps a somewhat more extreme variation accompanies Clint Eastwood's Letters From Iwo Jima. What makes this look successful for these types of films and series is that it not only punctuates the horrors and gritty reality of war, but it seemingly brings viewers into the middle of the action. The rough, sometimes handheld, hyperactive appearance offers perhaps the closest visual approximation of the ugliness and chaos of war possible through the filmed medium.

While the look of the series may be gritty and devoid of an abundance of bright colors, "Band of Brothers" on Blu-ray nevertheless offers viewers a remarkable level of clarity and definition through virtually every inch of the series. Each episode features remarkable attention to lifelike detail and historical accuracy, and the painstaking realism of the series is brought to life like never before on this Blu-ray edition. The transfer reveals fine definition in the lines, contours, and dirt on faces; it features high resolution and clarity through every patch, seam, fray, and accessory that make up the uniforms; and the wear on the weapons seen throughout, particularly the absence of bluing on the barrels and actions of weapons and the nicks and scratches visible on the wooden furniture of the Garands, Thompson submachine guns, and other armaments make them look well-used and appropriately battle-worn. Even smaller nuances, like the various scenes in the first episode that feature the men running up Currahee, reveals small details in the dirt and gravel of the well-beaten path, not to mention the various greenery and weeds that surround it. Black levels are also deep and accurate in virtually every instance; several dark scenes feature the heaviest amounts of grain seen throughout, a fine example being the nighttime drop into Normandy the night before the sea-based invasion on the morning of June 6, 1944. While "Band of Brothers" features a rough look that, upon first glance, might not seem to be the sort of programming that would benefit from the increased resolution Blu-ray has to offer, quite the opposite is in fact true. This Blu-ray edition simply demolishes the DVD edition in its presentation of the series' inherent grain, not to mention a remarkable increase in visible fine detail, texture, and depth. "

Fantastic series in my opinion.

£14.99 well spent for an amazing series and the length of the series too...considering this is standard price for a 90 minute new release


A great watch!
