So, these two legendary mini-series are some of the finest war-dramas ever made. But, which is better? In my opinion, it's a tie.
Band Of Brothers has better pacing, and The Pacific has better character individuality. They each tell very different stories in very different settings, but the biggest difference between the two is in how it treats its characters.
Band Of Brothers tells the story of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Regiment of the 101st Airborne. It has main characters, but as a whole, its main character is Easy Company as an entity. It's a story about camaraderie.
The Pacific tells the story of three separate individual soldiers: Robert Leckie, John Basilone, and Eugene Sledge. There are other characters in supporting roles as well, but even so, this cast is more narrow in size than BoB. The Pacific focuses on individual characters, rather than a large unit. It treats characters as people, rather than as part of a larger entity. Doing the opposite was BoB's strength, but The Pacific benefits from its individual focus.
However, because of its long timeline, The Pacific suffers from mediocre pacing. It feels very crammed at times. In contrast, Band Of Brothers is paced perfectly across its timeline.
In the end, Band Of Brothers is subjectively superior, but objectively, the two are equals.
So, what are your opinions OT?
