Band of Brothers
It's hard to recognize too many individual characters. But perhaps
that is the story of war, which at times seems larger than any one
man. Spielberg and Hanks, with Saving Private Ryan and now
Band of Brothers, have achieved a new hyper-realistic depiction
of war which will change the way future moviemakers depict war,
the topics they choose to tackle.
I remember watching the miniseries North and South as a kid.
Is there any TV experience more gratifying than the weekly gathering
to catch the next episode of a high quality TV miniseries? Band of
Brothers doesn't quite have that as each episode can stand alone,
but it's better than anything on network TV. When's the last time
a network television channel came out with a good miniseries?
