Band of Brothers is a bit different for me because it looks really beautiful (I loved that moment when Blithe started shooting), but long drawn out killing/shooting/explosion scenes in general (something like in Saving Private Ryan for example, which I didn't care for) aren't something that I'm always completely on board with. Should I just be appreciating the chaos, should I be emotionally invested in all the nameless faces dropping like flies, should I be excited and full of andrenaline as if I'm watching an action movie? It's just not something that consistently clicks with me.

But again, I loved episode 3
Well, I'm still not really sure I get it, especially describing them as "tedious," but I can appreciate that you know what you like and don't like.
