Spotlight on: Band of Brothers

Band of Brothers is a 10-part TV series that was originally aired on HBO in 2001. The executive producers were Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks, who had collaborated on the WWII film Saving Private Ryan a few years earlier.

Before last Saturday, 30th April, I had never watched the series before. All I knew was that it had something to do with Tom Hanks, was about a group of American soldiers in WWII, featured lots of actors who I would recognise and had received high praise.

After watching the final episode last night, I can safely say that Band of Brothers is one of my all-time favourite TV series.

Everything is spot on: the casting, the scenery, the effects… I reckon that ‘attention to detail’ was the production team’s mantra.

War films and TV series aren’t normally my sorta thing but Band of Brothers is magnificent.
