Band of Brothers Blu-Ray Is 50% Off At Amazon

Along with Band of Brothers, you'll find a few other historical dramas on sale, including Vikings and The Last Kingdom.


Band of Brothers first aired in 2001 and remains one of the best shows HBO has ever produced. The Emmy Award-winning series holds up remarkably well, and if you've yet to watch it (or are a long-time fan), you can pick it up in a Blu-ray box set that includes its sibling series, The Pacific, for just $29 at Amazon (down from $60).

That's one of the best prices we've ever seen for the bundle, with its lowest-ever price just a few bucks cheaper at $25. Band of Brothers is no doubt worth the price of admission, and when coupled with 2010's The Pacific, it's an even better deal. Both series take a nuanced look at World War II, following two distinct groups of memorable characters as they battle through Europe and Japan.

Along with all episodes of the two shows, this bundle includes the Called to Service documentary featuring never-before-seen interviews from the Easy Company and 1st Marine Division veterans.

A few other historical dramas are on sale at Amazon right now, including Vikings: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) for $60 (down from $140), The Last Kingdom: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) for $45 (down from $100), and Rome: The Complete Series (Blu-ray) for $35 (down from $55). The Vikings collection is particularly notable, as it clocks in at a staggering 27 discs and has just hit its lowest-ever price.
