These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Band of Brothers
Catharsis Factor: "The Breaking Point" is one of the harshest hours of the series, yet ends with Spiers taking command and running through the town twice without a scratch to show for it.
Creepy Awesome: Spiers's mannerisms are incredibly disconcerting, such as the way he applies his combat paint (three vertical stripes on each cheek), the way he wears his helmet (pulled down so the shadow from the brim covers his eyes), and his stare (wide-eyed, never breaking eye contact, and unblinking). These make him incredibly awesome, and his actor doubly so.
Crowning Music of Awesome - The opening credits, the choral scene in episode 7, the Beethoven piece that was extended into a leitmotif throughout episode 9, and the denouement in episode 10.
Also Malarkey, the Chaplain, and the supremely unconcerned British man that is "captured" in Currahee.
Harsher in Hindsight - The opening interviews in the very first episode, "Currahee," feature one of the men saying "Well, our country was attacked. It's different—it wasn't like Korea or Vietnam; we was attacked. And, you know, it was a feeling that, uh, maybe we're just dumb country people, where I come from, but a lot of us volunteered." The day that episode premiered? 9 September 2001.
Promos were actually pulled post 9/11 due to the combat violence shown and how it might upset people.
Memetic Badass: Speirs. The stories about just how many Germans he gunned down after giving them cigarettes and various other exploits get more fantastical with each telling.
The Woobie: YMMV, of course, but most fans can agree on Malarky, particularly during and after episode 7, when two of his best friends lose limbs during an artillery barrage, two more are killed in another barrage, and a fifth suffers a nervous breakdown as a result. Doc Roe is also a common woobie for the fans after seeing Episode 6, which brutally depicts what a combat medic would have gone through in the war.
Luz, too. He actually has to see his best friends get blown to bits.
Sobel could be considered one in Real Life, according to The Other Wiki. He eventually tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the temple. The bullet severed both optic nerves, permanently blinding him before exiting the other temple, and he lived for another twenty years.
Worse yet, when he finally did die, no one came to his funeral. No one from Easy Company, not his ex-wife, and none of his children. The only person to show him any concern is Guarnere, who pays his membership dues into a veterans group composed of Easy Company vets, but otherwise has nothing to do with the man.
Pvt. Blithe has a mental breakdown, is not seen by the company for a long time. He finally gets over it and is shot for his trouble. Furthermore, it makes it to Master Sergeant by the Korean War, is not given credit by the show for the accomplishment, because he was believed dead (he never showed up to the reunions), and none of the Easy Company members thought to try and contact him before his death. All the surviving Easy Company members felt horrible about the situation when they learned AFTER the show aired in 2001, almost forty years after he died.
