The entire series as a whole has disappointed me. Band of Brothers was much better
Yeah, I like the Pacific but I liked Band of Brothers better, maybe it was because I read the book (or most of it) beforehand, but it just seemed better.

Not to mention, BoB's cast was better.

I'll catch up on the Pacific here soon. But, BoB kicked its ass.

I think my favorite part was the shot of Clarkie practicing with aviators on. What a badass

The part with the players' dads was pretty sweet. I had heard a lot about that era from my dad, who loved the Flyers, but doesn't really give a crap about hockey nowadays. Very cool stuff. I wonder what would happen if the Bullies got together to go out drinking with the OCC now.

My personal favorite was the part where Clarence Campbell absolutely HATED having to hand them the Stanley Cup.

I laughed my ass off at that shot of him with the huge grimace on his face with the Flyers celebrating in the background.

This team was just too good, and too unique. No one could have ever done what they did and no one will ever do it again. These types of teams are once in a lifetime. The perfect mix of skill and goonery that will never be seen again.

The Bostom columnist was also a great addition, as well as Phil Esposito. It gave you two unique viewpoints in regards to the Flyers. They're hated, and both of those two absolutely detest the Flyers (I remember Espo going off an a Flyers fan on NHL Live during the 1st round, in which he said Flyers fans are "the worst"), but Esposito has to admit that aside from the goonery, they were a hell of a team.

This Flyers, the organization, and the coaches were the ultimate "gamers", and they did anything to win. In regards to that, they're completely unapologetic as to the tactics they took.

The inclusion of the Rexy's armbands renewed my HBO for life.
