Band of Brothers coming to Blu-ray in 2008
 
Wow, that's a lot sooner than I expected. I'm excited!

In the latest issue of Home Media Magazine, writer John Latchem interviewed Sofia Chang, Senior Vice President of Marketing for HBO Video with regards to the upcoming release of the mini-series 'John Adams' for DVD (no Blu-ray release has been announced at this time). At the conclusion of the interview, he asked when the popular 'Band of Brothers' mini-series would see Blu-ray release. She replied that a version was in the works for release later this year.

Awesome. I love BOB and I'm actually reading the book right now. Amazing how close they came to the book in nearly every instance so far.

Still don't know if I should keep my tin set of sell in in anticipation of this. I know HBO will rape us with this set.:thumbdwn:

If you like Saving Private Ryan, you'll love Band of Brothers. It's extremely well filmed and the stories' excellent also can be pretty emotional (especially at beginning of episodes where old veterans talk about their experiences). It's down to all details and seems very real and personal.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks are executive producers. Tom Hanks wrote one and directed other episodes.

Never seen it?! It's brilliant.

Also it's pronounced BD, not BR.

No. I'm pretty sure it's pronounced BD. As in Bee Dee.
