I noticed last Sunday night that the pilot episode for Band of Brothers was airing on the History Channel. Turns out they're re-airing the series, every Sunday night for the next couple months. I'm guessing most of you have already seen the show, but for those who haven't you NEED to sit your arse on the couch and watch this, especially if you have a few uncles and grandfathers who fought in WWII (like I do). When they first aired them on HBO when I was in college, it was like an event every Sunday night, my roommates and I would get some brews and pizza and get completely sucked in to this show.
In fact, you'd be better off buying - not renting, BUYING - the whole un-edited thing on DVD. But if you can't do that, catch 'em on History.
