Band of Brothers

I've always heard that the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers is a must-watch, but I've never taken the time to sit down and watch all 10 hours of it. I finally did a few months ago and was pretty blown away. It is extremely well done and pretty sobering, especially towards the end. It seems pretty realistic and gets pretty dang intense at times. I can't recommend it without stating the (hopefully) obvious that there's a good smattering of colorful language throughout, plus one skin scene (skip Chapter 1 of Part 9 after the initial pre-episode interviews), though it's otherwise incredible. It's a worthy investment and allows a lot more character development than a movie can because of the length.
