Band of Brothers, the HBO miniseries following American paratroopers in Normandy and beyond during the invasion of Europe, is being re-run on the History Channel. I'll take the time now to urge you to go rent the DVDs as the series is a stunning example of the war movie genre (but the edited History Channel version is kinda annoying.) But the combined length of the 10 episodes gives the show the freedom to explore areas that the typical 3 hour-long war-flick just can't do. Character development is the greatest strength of the series, which makes the soldiers plight (and sometimes their deaths) that much more affecting. Even if you're not usually a fan of the genre I think you will get a lot out of Band of Brothers.
