Band of Brothers

So I usually don't post twice in one day, but I had another thought and I didn't want to make the last post too long. I'm sure many of you don't know this small fact about me, but I love anything to do with World War II, I don't know why. I loved studying it in my high school history classes and I love learning about it. I'll even watch the History channel shows on it if Chauncey is watching it. So Chauncey thought I would enjoy the HBO series, Band of Brothers. We are on the sixth episode and I love it.

It is such a great show, and usually I avoid movies or shows with a ton of blood and gore because it makes me woozy, but I just can't stay away from this show. It's so hard to keep myself from watching it while Chauncey's at work (we decided to watch it together.) It's such a powerful story with such a strong sense of brotherhood (hence the name of the show). I won't give anything away for those who haven't seen it, but it is the story of Easy Company of the US Army 101st Airborne division and their mission in WWII Europe. Each episode shares a different mission and focuses on different characters. I've read some of the reviews on it, and many veterans who watched it said it was extremely accurate and authentic. I could go on for hours on this show but I don't want to make this post too long or give too much away.

Also, I think anyone who has seen the show will agree with me on the fact that Captain Winters (Damian Lewis) is so handsome. I have officially added him to my mental list of celebrity crushes (don't judge.) In case you haven't seen a photo of him, here you go :) (One of him as Captain Winters, and one of him in real life)

So yeah, if you haven't seen Band of Brothers yet and you enjoy history and a good story, I would definitely recommend this show. It is awesome.
