Band of Brothers

The greatest TV in history is being made right now. The worst TV in history is being made right now.

Yes.

Your loss. :evil:

Ok, maybe that was harsh, but I really loved this series and I honestly have never heard of anyone who has ever watched the entire series and not left it with some sort of impression.

One contention though. There was one scene that TOTALLY sucked me out of the immersion that the entire series created, and that was when fucking JIMMY FALLON showed up to butcher some dialog. Who in the fucking right mind thought that was a good decision. FUCK!

Jimmy Fallon was actually playing a member of his real life family if I remember right. That guy who drove up in the jeep and gave easy some AMMO was a member of his extended family.

That's why he pops up for no reason at all. Paying homage to his family

I always wondered where Fallon was - I saw his name in the credits of one episode and watched for him every episode from that point on and couldn't see him anywhere.

So now I know.

Al - are you being 100% objective? Come on... be honest. Isn't that like me saying "I watched the 1990 World Cup Final and thought it was really dull" :D

It would have been a better homage to step aside and let a capable actor handle the lines.

I just read Dick Winters' memoirs- Beyond Band of Brothers: The War Memoirs of Major Dick Winters

Great read. It offered a lot more details into the events and characters during Easy Company's training and time in Europe. I ended up watching the series again after I finished the book. Simply amazing, not that I never thought that before. After that, I ended up doing on an IMDB binge to see what the actors had done since. I was surprised to find that a lot of the actors in Easy company are actually British. I knew Damian Lewis (Winters) was, but there were quite a few more. I was also disappointed to see that hardly any of them have done anything worth mentioning since BoB.

But aside from the mention of Winters' memoirs, here's the real reason I bumped this thread. I decided a while ago that if I ever had a lot of money to burn, I'd love to tour the parts of Europe that Easy Company went to, to put the locations of the stories into a real-life perspective. I was more than happy to find this:
Band Of Brothers Tours

Cheap marketing? I don't think so.
Amazing way to see the locations? Absolutely.
And the saving of money begins......

Am watching the second episode of this in honor of the 65th anniversary. I tried to watch more today (D-Day) but my meds said a nap was more important after watching the first episode this afternoon.

Eternal thanks to the brave Allied forces for what they did.

Edit - and I still want to take that tour I linked above.

I missed that last post a while back. I read Beyond Band of Brothers too a couple of years back. It is a really great read. I've been to Normandy but it would be great to take that tour as well.

BoB showed up on HBO On Demand a few weeks ago and I've been watching it off and on since then. I watched "The Breaking Point" today.

holy shit.

Such an amazing series.

As for D-Day, hell, just take what we have seen in:

BoB (people jumping out of perfectly good airplanes at altitudes and wind speeds they hadn't trained for due to the heavy flak and other anti-aircraft fire only to land scattered and usually miles from their designated drop zones, well behind enemy lines and in advance of the landings (not to mention the pathfinders for those planes who jumped in first, usually individually HOURS before the landings))

Saving Private Ryan (Omaha Beach....nuff said)

The Longest Day (Brits flying in unpowered, wooden horsa gliders which inevitably crash land ("land" being charitable in this case), who are then tasked with taking a bridge over which German armor could roll up the entire allied beachhead if they fail and holding it until whenever they are relieved, not to mention the Rangers on the other side of the beach head scaling Pont Du Hoc to take out German artillery. This is a VERTICAL climb (I've seen it) with Germans shooting down at you and lobbing down grenades).

Plus a million other stories from the Day of Days.

Now multiply that horror/fear/tension that we feel just watching the films by maybe a factor of 1000000 to estimate what the men on the ground were actually feeling.

Absolutely mindboggling.

Those guys are my heroes. Not because they were larger than life, because...in point of fact most of them WEREN'T. They were the same Joe Schmoes we are...and they did it anyway. And, moreover, most of them volunteered to be there.

Anyway, as any of you who have discussed this with me before know, I get a little impassioned about this topic. I've studied it a lot and a few of my family members where there (or overhead) So i wont go rambling any more except to say:

thanks guys. And for the Easy Company boys, Currahee!

After watching Saving Private Ryan and The Longest Day on Friday & Saturday, I decided to re-watch Band of Brothers. I intended to simply watch a few episodes; ended up spending yesterday watching the whole thing. I've loved this series since it first aired way back in 2001 and have watched it in full several times. It is still as powerful and emotional as it was the first time I saw it.

Each time I discover something new. I wasn't that familiar with Jimmy Fallon when it first aired and it was after a few viewings that I noticed him (although I had remembered the character since he prompted that great line from Winters "We're Paratroopers, we're supposed to be surrounded"). This time I noticed two actors I hadn't realized were in it: Jason O'Mara (from ABC's Life on Mars) as Lt. Meehan, and Simon Pegg as Sobel's aid (he hands Winters the Court Martial order).

My two complaints about the DVD are, while there are some good features, it does not contain the 2 minute trailer that HBO showed before it aired. Also, there are no commentaries; with all the actors, writers, directors, and veterans involved with this series, they could have had such great commentaries for every episode.

Were there any deleted scenes? Since HBO didn't seem to restrict each episode's running time I'm guessing nothing got cut due to time. But was anything cut due to pacing? The original idea was to have 12 parts - anyone know how far along in production they were before it was cut to 10? What stories they would have covered had they had 2 more episodes? These are the sort of things one might reveal in a commentary, but we didn't get any.

p.s. Don't know why it says "gaffneyed" above. I wrote "d e l e t e d" (without the spaces) but it shows that word instead. Is it some kind of Zone inside joke?

Excellent way to celebrate/honor D-Day.

I know this is a terrible excuse, but I have yet to find the time to watch Band of Brothers despite the fact that I've owned the DVDs for about 2 years now.

Yes.

Regarding O'Mara, I'm not that familiar with the US version of Life on Mars, but I'll have to look for that. Pegg has a couple of small scenes. He's also in there when Sobel is checking the barracks and finds "pornography", condoms, and peaches... err, I mean "United States Government Property."

I think the interviews with the vets takes away any need for commentary from them. And the basic training home movie serves as a great way to introduce the actors themselves.

So Sorry - who commented before I finished typing ........ you've owned the discs for two years but have NOT seen the series yet!?!?!?!? :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Shame.

Thanks, good to know. I believe I have come across this before, reading a post with a gibberish word and thinking it must be slang I am not familiar with.

so sorry wrote:I know this is a terrible excuse, but I have yet to find the time to watch Band of Brothers despite the fact that I've owned the DVDs for about 2 years now.

Have you simply not watched the DVD, or not seen the series at all? Either way, the TV season is done. All you need is roughly one hour a day for 10 days. Enjoy!

Fievel wrote:Pegg has a couple of small scenes. He's also in there when Sobel is checking the barracks and finds "pornography", condoms, and peaches... err, I mean "United States Government Property."

I noticed him in that scene and thought "hang on, is that..." but wasn't 100% sure it was him. It was only in the later scene when he spoke that I was certain.

Fievel wrote:I think the interviews with the vets takes away any need for commentary from them. And the basic training home movie serves as a great way to introduce the actors themselves.

I believe the new Blu-ray version has episode commentaries by the veterans. Don't know how much is an extension of the interviews and how much is commenting on the show itself ("I was on-set that day", "we discussed how he should play this scene", "that's not quite how it happened", etc). It's the behind-the-scenes, making-of discussions among the writer, director, a couple of actors and maybe a couple of veterans (their take on the series itself) that I thought would be very interesting to hear.

I liked Livingston's home movies but was disappointed it only covered basic training. On first watching it I expected the segments to cover many, or all, of the episodes as well. Still, I've watched it a few times as it is very funny.

So I've finally begun watching Band of Brothers, three parts in so far and loving every second. My aversion to the series all these years was due to my disdain for Saving Private Ryan... but Band of Brothers has the best elements of Ryan, without all the sappy eye-roll-inducing BS, and instead authentic-feeling character moments. And holy crappa I thought HBO productions were impressive before, but this is just an incredibly long feature film, what an experience!

After doing some light research, I'm a little bummed to find out that the "article" is really an e-mail that has been making the rounds.
I checked snopes.com (which is great for busting or confirming Internet myths) and they don't have an answer for it.

If the guy's airport/airplane story is true, I wish he would have given his name to give the story some validity.

Regardless, anyone that's watched the series and paid close attention to the things said in those interviews KNOWS that those men are type of people everyone should wish they could be like.

yeah, just don't forget, those are the men who resisted civil rights reform, supported segregation, served in a time when Black soldiers were not treated as well as Nazi POWs. just make sure you keep some perspective on the guys who were more than willing to let Hitler round up and slaughter Jews, to turn away ships of Jewish refugees trying to escape that slaughter, watched Hitler conquer Europe and bomb and attempt to invade the UK and dismissed FDR's pleas for action by the American people, and they couldn't care less when Japan invaded the Chinese mainland and literally raped entire cities of women and girls and slaughtering all the males.

the ONLY reason they decided to support the US getting into the war was when some of our warships were attacked. by Japan

perspective. greatest generation my ass

and just like that Jerry has no clue about anything more complex than crayon drawn idolization and a nice whitewashed idealized view of history so he can go on idealizing his heroes like a child instead of ever confronting the reality they lived in and created themselves, so simple-minded and childlike that he thinks listing their names carries any kind of weight whatsoever while showing zero awareness or appreciation of real history and the suffering of the very real Black Americans who lived in the world those white heroes he worships helped to maintain, (war stuff is more fun to glorify and look up to, right?) but what do you expect from someone who takes their name and avatar from a fucking twistedly trite and idealized caricature of immigrants to this country.

God damn Peven, you are such an asshole.
Band of Brothers (if you'd actually like to discuss the topic at hand, not your world views on the evil white man) is not about the men who decided the fate of nations, its about REAL men, and the REAL shit they had to go thru the likes of which 99% of us will never have to face.
Do you have anything to say about this show, the book, or the real men who's stories are told here? No?

yeah, I'm an asshole because I point out the truth. God damn pussies. no wonder Trump and the cops and every racist asshole in this country feels empowered to do whatever the fuck they want, they know there are a bunch of white, middle-aged, rubber-spined apologists who will ignore racism and injustice to women and minorities at every opportunity because it is inconvenient and they don't have the balls to deal with their buddies giving them a hard time about caring about minority rights, but will never pass on an opportunity to get misty eyed over white soldiers killing people.

go fuck yourself and your Kap-bashing pals. :D

Band of Brothers (if you'd actually like to discuss the topic at hand, not your world views on the evil white man) is not about the men who decided the fate of nations, its about REAL men, and the REAL shit they had to go thru the likes of which 99% of us will never have to face.
Do you have anything to say about this show, the book, or the real men who's stories are told here? No?




yeah, I'm an asshole because I point out the truth. God damn pussies. no wonder Trump and the cops and every racist asshole in this country feels empowered to do whatever the fuck they want, they know there are a bunch of white, middle-aged, rubber-spined apologists who will ignore racism and injustice to women and minorities at every opportunity because it is inconvenient and they don't have the balls to deal with their buddies giving them a hard time about caring about minority rights, but will never pass on an opportunity to get misty eyed over white soldiers killing people.

go fuck yourself and your Kap-bashing pals. :D


someday, forty or fifty or a hundred years from now, people will be saying the exact same thing about you. maybe not about racism (though probably that too, because as the past week has shown, our generation is no less racist and no less to blame for the ongoing damage that racism has caused).... maybe it will be for global warming, or guns, or eating meat, or religious superstition, or something we can't even imagine today because there's a society-wide blind spot to it that we're not even aware of, something we take totally for granted whose evil will only be apparent after we've all died. and if you were around, you'd probably protest and say "but i wasn't racist or sexist or pro-fossil fuels or anything bad" and maybe you'd even talk about how much you did to advance society by posting messages on a forum that gets read by approximately 3 other people or so.... but it won't matter. because you were still part of the evil generation who knew that global warming was going to destroy the planet and didn't do anything to stop it. you were still part of the generation that benefitted from the systematic oppression of non-white, non-male, non-heterosexual people. you were still part of the generation that tortured and killed animals for food and allowed any idiot who wanted a gun to buy one and use it to shoot up a school or a mosque. you're just as guilty as the most racist, sexist, homophobic, MAGA-hat-wearing NRA member, all because you existed at the same time as those people. at least, that's what the logic of your post would dictate.

most of the people on that list were white. some were black (they may not have even realized it). some were hispanic. some were jewish. some were almost certainly KKK members. others almost certainly went on to become part of the civil rights movement. some of them were good. some of them were evil. most of them were a little of both. none of them were perfect. but every single one lived at the same moment in time, so to the simple-minded, they were all the same. all equally as vile and despicable as the worst among them.

also, at the risk of hurting your feelings... what makes you think any of us is your "buddy"?
