Just finished watching Band of Brothers, the story of Easy Company, a unit of US paratroopers which was at the European frontline during the whole European campaign. It's a very well made piece war drama, showing lots of bravery & heroism by incredibly young guys. Tom Hanks & Steven Spielberg have delivered another piece of fine work. But seriously: the current generation of Europeans fortunately doesn't know from personal experience what war is. But I am not sure whether we're using that privilege to our full advantage.
Six Feet Under is another excellent HBO production the fourth season of which I just started with.
