I rarely say this about any show/movie but this is a must see. History can teach us a lot and I don´t know of many shows that do it as great as Band of Brothers does.

avatar

This is a very good series - has taken me a while to watch it but glad i finally did.

avatar

Why this took me until now to watch this is something I have to live with forever haha , I got so engrossed in this series I literally felt a lump in my throat at the end of it. The acting in this is probably some of the best you will see in a TV show EVER!!!

avatar

Fantastic series! Very authentic scenes with some great chemistry between the cast members.. Highly recommend.

avatar

I think this was one of the greatest war series ever to hit TV you really care for these guys and you rooted for them to make it home.

Realistic autobiographical stories of parachute soldiers that served during WW2. Disturbing violent imagery with a lot of needless wasted deaths and gruesomeness. Damian Lewis' break-through role as the natural leader of the pack sticks out the most. It also dare to show Americans in a bad light. Sometimes hard to see which actor is behind all the dirty faces and muddy helmets (which is a shame!) as there is a lot of good actors here. It is also a show that is hard to see more than one episode at a time as it usually ends in a rather somber and unhappy note.

Maybe best history series ever. 10/10

A true masterpiece. It should be shown in schools across the world.

The Best Military series ever!!!!

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
