Audience Reviews for Band of Brothers: Season 1

  • Dec 23, 2021
    This series is a benchmark for mini-series and by Hollywood standards, extremely historically accurate.
  • Dec 19, 2021
    Love this series. Exciting, compelling, deeply moving. I rewatch every year or so. Must watch the documentary "We Stand Alone Together" about the real heros of Easy Company.
  • Dec 01, 2021
    6.3/10 — "Okay"/"Watchable"
  • Oct 24, 2021
    20 years after its release --- a perfect example of how much better media is when it is true to the reality of history. Watch it once a year forever.
  • Oct 20, 2021
    Band of Brothers is a truly remarkable series. There's so much story in these 10 episodes.
  • Jul 27, 2021
    Thank god for our veterans, this show is something every American should watch!!!
  • Jun 19, 2021
    Immaculate casting and spectacular imagery. Add to that the emotional tug of having these incredible vets in present day (2001) give their perspective with the genius of withholding disclosure of which was which until the series concludes. Doesn't get better.
  • Jun 14, 2021
    This is a benchmark in television history. It also stands as one of the finest pieces of war media ever created.
  • May 18, 2021
    Best WW2 mini-series ever created, hands down
  • Apr 10, 2021
    A true masterpiece. This is what tv should be.
