band of brothers

The Chop received the DVD set of Band of Brothers for his birthday, and we spent most of the weekend watching them and there are two things that really stand out for me:

1) Damian Lewis needs a TV show, desperately. We LOVED him on Life—watched it religiously and were bummed when it was canceled—and he can seriously anchor any TV show. Look at Nathan Fillion—Castle would not still be on the air without him. Lewis is brilliant in BoB.

2) War is hell and neither of us are cut out to be in the military. Particularly any war in a cold climate, where the unit gets stuck in Belgium, in the winter. Most definitely, no.

If you haven’t seen BoB, rent it or buy it or borrow it, it’s amazing.

  1. i can’t watch war stuff. the fact that it’s real makes me unbearably sad. it’s the same reason i can’t watch the news. i’m already holding onto a thread normally.

  2. True, it’s very sad, but it’s also very inspirational.. and it has really funny parts.

    Personally I rarely watch the news because the people who do it are crappy and bug me. :D
