tv drama really doesn't get much better made than this does it.
but i couldn't stop giggling at angry david schwimmer.
even if you aren't interested in war stuff it's incredible
and that bloke from hustle? A bit odd seeing them in it it was.
and at least one former eastender
Can't help but well up at the last episode. And in fact a few others before that (esp. the one where they liberate the camp)
during the battle of the bulge
Yeah that was a heavy episode too, though it's hardly light material to begin with.
The bit in that episode that gets me is when Toy's crying out on the ground, Guarnere goes out to get him and...bam.
Camera crews in the background aside.
I feel a sit through and spot the mistakes session coming along.
where you can see a couple of guys casually walking alongside by a tank. Can't remember which, I think it's mentioned on IMDB. I noticed it on first watch, made me giggle. Apparently there's a shitload of continuity errors too, although those sorts of things rarely bother me.
1. The opening melodramatic titles that last for literally about 5 minutes.
2. The shocking, shocking amount of British actors putting bad American accents on. WHY DIDNT THEY USE YANKS!?
Good things about it:
Literally every other part of it.
just about the only real americans in it?
when the guy got crushed by the tank. Grim.
I've missed a couple of episodes which I'm annoyed about but I've been watching this run of it. Really good.
it was good. lots of grim stuff in it, though.
