    I was initially confused by the title listing because with DVDs fullscreen means part of the original picture will be cropped out. However, after some research, with HD fullscreen means it utilizes the full screen of a widescreen TV. Now for the two shows included in this set: Band of Brothers and The Pacific. I loved Band of Brothers. It follows one company of men from their training throughout WWII in the European theater. A must watch. The Pacific highlights three different Marines in the Pacific theater. A good show but in my opinion Band of Brothers is better. I wish there were more extras for Band of Brothers like if there were deleted scenes (not sure if there are any). The packaging is nice. It comes in a box with a magnetic latch. The discs slip into sleeves in a thick card stock. Overall, for the price, I think this is a must own product.

    I find it odd that you can purchase these sets on sale separately for a total of $70 right now. However no one thought to lower the 2 series set to that price. lol I can buy them shrink wrapped together for $160 or I can by them shrink wrapped separately for $70 total. DUH! lol Great series. I consider this to be the last truly great war ever fought. Everything after has had a negative impact on our country. This series gives you the greatest sense of what it was REALLY like.

    If you have seen either of the miniseries, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. Both are excellent, but very differently done. The Band of Brothers gets you more involved with the individual characters while still telling an excellent and realistic story about what life must have been like for the incredible men who fought that war. The Pacific is excellent, too but focuses less on the characters and more on the Pacific campaign itself. Highly recommend both to WW II and history buffs.

    Band of Brothers and The Pacific are two of the greatest programs to have ever been brought to the small screen. The quality of the presentation in each series is phenomenal. While I believe that Band of Brothers is superior to The Pacific, no WWII history buff's film collection is complete without both series. Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg are to be commended for their work to bring these films into American homes.

    Excellent historical series, one of best mini-series ever. Both do an excellent job of portraying the realities of each battle, war, and loss. Most war movies seem to be on the heroic bent, and these two are the harsh realities of what war does to people.

    Had recently read Band of Brothers and saw this set was on sale at Best Buy (early June). Picked it up and plan to start watching it soon. Other reviews I read seem pretty positive about the shows.

    Just an all around awesome series. Band of Brothers is exceptional for a WW2 series. Highly recommend it. The Pacific was also good, but BoB is much better in my opinion. Still, they are both great.

    Based on a true story and following one group through the War after D-Day this was a great way to learn and feel how it was to be at risk during WWII. Truly a classic.
