Band of Brothers

This is simply a fantastic series. It's all based on actual facts, granted with a little artistic interpretation, but, hey -- it doesn't detract from the story at all.

There is one scene of sex in the entire series. It kinda jumps out at you. It's completely unexpected. There are small references here and there elsewhere, but you never see anything. It's not the point of the show.

It goes without saying that the show is very violent, and like most movies portraying the armed forces, there is a lot of language, too. It's based on World War II, so the violence level is expected. There is a lot of blood, a lot of violent results (like dismemberment), but even if you're as squeamish as I am, the whole series is so very worth it. The series portrays soldiers of all camps as serving their countries with as much honor and bravery as every man can muster. The message is good, the actors played everything very well, the directors and the producers did an excellent job -- do yourself a favor and watch this series.
