    I still watch it at least twice a year, in fact I got Band of Brothers and the Pacific again this year as a Christmas present but this time on blu-ray.

    Fantastic show.

    Got Band of Brothers on Blu-ray a couple of years ago, * quality. It’s about time Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg made another series

    Band of Brothers is excellent and the Pacific is pretty good as well. :50:

    If anyone is looking for something substantial and similiar there is a 5 part mini-series from the 1980a called ANZACS about a platoon of Australian soldiers in WWI, following them from being recruited through Gallipoli and the Western Front right through to the end of the war, as well as the home front etc. Has a pretty good cast headed by Paul Hogan, Andrew Clarke and Jon Blake (what might have been - he was severely brain damaged in a car accident shortly after this). Has a different feel from Band of Brothers, but still very much worth checking out for those that are fans of BoB.

    I know its a movie but "Land Of Mine",is well worth a look here.


    In post-World War II Denmark, the Danish government puts their hated German prisoners of war to work clearing the 1.5 million landmines from the western beaches of the country. At one such beach, Sgt. Carl Leopold Rasmussen finds himself in charge of one such labor unit and finds they are largely all inexperienced boys. As the boys struggle to complete and survive their dangerous work, Sgt. Rasmussen's hate for Germans gradually cools as he grows to understand the horrific situation these child soldiers are in even as the mines claim more and more victims. Eventually, the boys and the Sergeant must decide what can be done in a situation that would be later be denounced by later generations as the worst war crime committed by the Danish government in its history.

    Stunning movie about the war.

    I've always meant to watch The Pacific, never got around to it. Think I'll watch it after I finish BoB.

    It’s not got as much action in it, and I thought about 4 or 5 episodes were quite boring tbh, the ones with action were very good though
