    10 episodes?
    I think I've seen 2 discs/ 4 episodes... Is this where they feed the soldiers their favorite food/ spaghetti and force them to run afterwards?

    I think most of the main characters except for Donnie off NKOTB and the second-in-command guy are British actors. Obviously Damian Lewis and Dexter Fletcher - but also the guy that steals all of Hitler's cutlery and the medic who is a poor man's Johnny Depp.

    You need better friends.

    I love BoB. I even went to most of the actual sights when I was in France working. On weekends I'd go to see Carentan etc. This is me even doing a History degree and working in History, I still get excited about it, hah.

    Me and my best friend have seen it so much we often quote random lines from it all the time at each other.

    Was truly brilliant. I'll happily marathon it any time!!

    Donnie was the only reason I watched Band of Brothers

    Erm no, I don't know what series you watched but I watched a series full of American actors with 3 Brits (Damian, Dexter and Ross McCall) and 1 South African (Peter something)... that was the main group of guys, there were a couple of other Brits later one during fillers but the main characters were mainly American.

    Hahaha, agreed!! Took me ages to work out who the hell Spiers was.

    I absolutely adore the last couple of episodes though. Incredible.

    Yes, I loved this series. I also really enjoyed the Pacific. If you haven't read the book, or some of the books written by the guys in the series such as Richard Winters or Bill Guarnere, I highly recommend it.

    Just out of interest, how do you guys feel about the depiction of Herbert Sobel in the series?
