    what can I say but...WOW !

    Having owned and absolutely loved, and enjoyed watching Band of Brothers on DVD

    I read some great reviews about the Blue Ray edition of Band of Brothers and dutifully traded in my DVD boxset (for Gladiator on Blue) and purchased the Blue Ray set at a killer price from a large on-line retailer who shall remain nameless

    only watched the first 2 episodes, but within minutes of watching the first episode "kurahee" I was gobsmacked by the increase in clarity, detail and atmosphere

    with some of the movies I have traded from DVD to Blue, it has not really made much difference to the overall experience, especially with a good up-scaling Blue Ray player

    but the difference in picture quality with Band of Brothers from DVD to Blue is very noticeable, I also tried some of the special feature on the first disc and the feature where the veterans "pop up" (picture in picture) at key points was very cool

    Band of Brothers is an awesome show, and upping the picture quality has made it even better

    I guess if you have an average movie, it does not add much (moving from SD to HD) but for an awesome show its even better?

    I admit I forgot the "-" when I searched for BOB on Blue

    the search came up with some very old news, and nothing in the forum

    great boxset!!

    Actually, the misspelling to which he was referring was the addition of the letter "e" at the end of "Blu".
