I think the trick is; and it's a bit easier for me to do it, is to try to emotionally and mentally put yourself in their shoes. Try to realize that these events really did happen to these individuals and as you are watching; re-live these moments the best you can with these individuals. That's why I get so emotional watching Band of Brothers and The Pacific. I totally connect with the characters the best way that I can. I research them; learn of their past and post war lives. I probably get too involved, but that's just who I am, I'm a fanatic WWII person and veteran appreciator. I can sometimes drive my wife nuts. I have this 65" HDTV that sits aproximately 3 feet off our living room floor (so it's like having a movie screen). I have a surround sound system that has speakers in every all four corners of the room. When I watch the Pacific at 8pm central time, I make the kids go to their rooms and my wife goes to the bedroom (not because I make her) and shuts the door. Now I am sitting in my recliner with all the lights off and nothing but the show playing....yeah, now I'm engulfed in the show. I swear I was born in the wrong generation.
Anyways, I've heard a lot of people say they aren't connecting with this show like "Band of Brothers", so this is just my perspective on "getting connected". I hope you enjoy the last few epsiodes a bit more.
P.S. I also love the Band of Brothers series and because of that series, I became a WWII fanatic.
