I have a link to watch BoB online, so I planned on watching one/two a day this week to get it over with so it doesn't interfere with The Pacific.

Thanks for the thread, I have been anticapating this series ever since it was announced almost a year ago. I have the BoB steelcase DVD set, my fav mini tv series of all time. It's the GOAT. My only prob is, I don't have HBO anymore
... ugh, dont feel like ordering it right now

Band of Brothers was one of the most epic pieces of film (television or cinema) that I've ever seen. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I may be alone in that thought, but I really recommend it.

I'm really looking forward to The Pacific as it starts tonight.

for those that have on-demand, watch "the making of" ... its a dope 20 minute piece. the Iwo Jima battle looks pretty epic.

I'm seriously contemplating adding HBO back on just for this series.


Looks to be a 10 parts.


I would strongly recommend anyone who is interested in the Pacific Theater of the war to read up about. War is war but the battles in the Pacific were brutal. Hand to hand combat in the jungle. Men constantly lived in fear of night raids. The Japanese never surrendered when engaged and most of the men fighting in the Japanese army were war tested veterans.

Will be watching this FOR SURE. Supposedly it's way more graphic than B.O.B. Speaking of which, I re-watched the whole series last week on On Demand. Definitely one of the best shows of All-Time and i'm expecting just as much for The Pacific.

do it bro. entourage starts back up soon... and TREME starts this summer too. "Treme" is written produced by the team that did the wire, and is centered around new orleans struggling musicians and artists (i think). should be dope.

I am so juiced for this. Band of Brothers is one of my favorite series ever, and I hope this will not disappoint.

I was wondering where the group of Italian guys were the entire time, and then they show up at the end. The way they came about though was good.

I can't compare any of this to BoB until I watch it (which I plan on getting done this week before Sunday), but I've been hearing nothing but great things about the Pacific. The battles are only going to get bigger and better (visually).

So far so good.
