    I already knew why they fought. We learned that shit in 6th grade.

    However, I didn't know how or when the soldiers of the 101st reached the breaking point.

    So, episode 7 suitably entitled, "The Breaking Point" brought the best combination of cinematic excellence and enlightenment.

    This is not opinion, this is factual information.

    yeah i would have, but i di'int

    also lip's narration and seeing the characters in their fullest development (after watching them grow up throughout the series) lends to Episode 7's greatness

    after 7, like 2/3rds of the characters are dead.

    Were you spongeworthy on the RB?

    Anyway, as someone who has seen BofB about 10000000 times, here is how I would rank the episodes:

    1. 7-Breaking Point
    2. 2-Day of Days
    3. 5-Crossroads
    4. 4-Replacements
    5. 6-Bastogne
    6. 8-The Last Patrol
    7. 1-Curahee
    8. 3-Carentan
    9. 9-Why We Fight
    10. 10-Points

    You can't really go wrong watching any of them tho. If you loved the series tho, the book is a must read.

    I could watch them all day everday. breaking point is probably the best one.

    the book is even better and has a lot of little stories that didnt make it into the series. citizen soldiers is a solid read as well. I havent read it, but I heard the dick winters book is worth checking out also.

    No. It was a ten episode mini-series that ran in 2001 or 2002 I think. I've had the DVD boxset since I was in 8th grade so it's been a while since it aired. I'd highly recommend watching it tho, and reading the book.
