A great start to a great mini-series!,
This review is from: Band of Brothers Season 1 [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
"Currahee" is the first installment of the superb "Band of Brothers" miniseries. It is based upon the actual experiences of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the famed 101st Airborne Division. This first episode finds E Company in training in Georgia under one Captain Sobel. Sobel both hates and is hated by the men, but has a gift for training. More would be telling, but the rivalry and eventual reckoning between Captain Sobel and Lieutenant Winters, his Executive Officer, is a great story. All of this takes place as the Company prepares for the big jump into Normandy on D-Day.
Every episode of "Band of Brothers" is well worth watching and constitutes superb entertainment. However, this first episode remains my favorite. RJB.
