Now now. I know the original was a thing, and a lot of it was good.
Hell, I definitely cried for Hughes.

That being said, Brotherhood took us all the way, and was quite enjoyable to boot, so it gets the name of the thread. But, there is nothing stopping people from talking about the full scene of Hughes death, or the Nina episode. I'm glad Brotherhood skipped those. They knew those scenes had been done fantastically in the original, so why try to recreate the magic, when they could rush through the early stuff to get to the meat. Like Kimblee being an absolute bastard.
