Post HBO Series: The Pacific

I watched the first episode of the HBO 10-part mini-series, The Pacific. It premiered the other night on HBO and it was excellent. My grandfather was a part of the 1st Marine Division that fought on Guadalcanal, so that made it that much more interesting to me. I havent watched a series in a while that had me anticipating the next episode as much as this mini-series. If you haven't checked it out, I suggest you do. Do yourself a favor and watch it in HD with surround sound.

Great show. I hope it ends up being on the same level as Band of Brothers.

I really like how they got right into the action, where BoB went through a lot of training/character development before any battles.

I really enjoyed the series, but the character's just weren't as strong. I guess in real life, these guys were just quite ordinary compared to the bad ass paratroopers in BoB, which makes sense. How do you compete with guys like Winters, Speirs,Guarnere etc etc? Their trek from Normandy all the way to the Eagles nest is about as remarkable as it gets. It's amazing any of them survived right to the end.
