Life On The 48th Floor

Water boils faster up here. It\’s true!

Band of Brothers

did not "get better near the end." There were reasons. The first and most obvious (to me) being the packaging. Multiple DVDs of a series need to be packed in a queue or in some manner that allowed direct access to any DVD in that packaging. Packing them into a stack demonstrates a lack of understanding of how DVDs in a series are watched, and irks watchees like me to no end.

Faux decolouring and over-sepiarisation. There really is a reason black-and-white and sepia-coloured shows aren't made any more (except in high-budget, pretentious projects). This is the one reason I would have preferred Michael Bay's Pearl Harbour over Band of Brothers.

And finally. Some nut said "it gets better near the end" which I took seriously (dumb of me.. but only because I fell asleep at least once during each of the first 3 episodes). OK, fine. It did get better but it wasn't a heck of a lot better. The feeling is that of thankfulness it is over.
