I watched it all and thought it was a bit shit really. I don't like the lead, he was annoying in 24 too.

Interesting at best, nothing really grabbed me watching it. Can't beat the original.

Everyone has a purpose, just so happens mine is more of an example to others of what NOT to do.

I know it's time to go to bed when the last post in every thread has been written by me.

I enjoyed it but it was not as good as Band of Brothers. I did not like that most of the characters changed half way through. You where just getting to know them and then they disappear for them to focus on that new recruit guy.

Still better than 99% of TV just not as good as BOB.

Band of Brothers had Damien Lewis in, and you can't beat that. Also, everyone looks the same. They're all white, dark haired covered in shit. Band of Brothers had a ginger, and had more of a storyline than fight fight fight (As there were proper objectives for the most part rather than a Hamburger Hill), and they ruined the story with the soppy stuff.

Pure shit. Unfortunately it's always going to be compared to the masterpiece that is BoB. Far too boring with completely throw away characters. One whole episode of them getting drunk in Australia? Brutal.
