-Not sure who gave the best performances in this. Damian "H.P. Lovecraft lookalike" Lewis made a formidable center, would never have guessed he was British if I didn't already know. Webster was the "And you, you're too...BLONDE!" guy from Fight Club, he did well. James McAvoy looked about 13. Tom Hardy gave the first of many nude scenes in his career. Michael Fassbender, Simon Pegg, JIMMY FALLON?...not on screen enough. The Scottish bully from Rushmore popped up for a few minutes and used one of the weirdest accents I've ever heard. I often wonder how Captain Dale Dye feels about appearing in stuff like this. Dye in case you didn't know is an old war buddy of Oliver Stone's who helped out by being his technical consultant on Platoon and some people credit him with really changing the look of combat on film in his gig there but I'm not sure about that. Oh, and Office Space guy--I didn't notice him much until the concentration camp episode where he's really damn good.
-You're a casting agent for a huge 10 part big budget World War II miniseries being filmed in the UK for HBO and being produced by Spielberg and Hanks. "Hey, I know who we can get to play this pathetic CO that drills the living crap out of his men but isn't much of a leader. ROSS FROM FRIENDS." I can't even TELL if Schwimmer pulled off that part. That whiny voice really limits him as an actor.
-Holy crap the German general is played by the Dietrich guy from Raiders of the Lost Ark, the guy whose face sucks in at the end when they open the ark. Spielberg, you rake.
-The final scene in the last episode is strangely reminiscent of the end of The Sandlot.
-Very few women! But I just watched Lawrence Of Arabia.
-It was good although I have to say aside from the scenes where the soldiers don't act so soldierly, I'm not *surprised* at much of what made it onto screen. I don't know if I'll revisit Band Of Brothers much in la futura, but I will say it mostly worked well enough.
-I'm four episodes into LOST season two. In spite of trying to avoid spoilers I checked out the IMDb board just to see what's there before the IMDb boards die forever and someone remarked that the episode I'd just watched ("Adrift," with Sawyer and black Oz wheelchair dude on the raft) was the worst episode of the series. It was admittedly a bit silly.
