Great TV series but "The Pacific" was even better.

Band of Brothers and Generation Kill are the DVDs I'd take on a desert island. Love this show so much.

Seen lots of HBO stuff but whenever that intro appears the tune in my head is Band of Brothers theme, a true masterpiece.

Good job WG supporting this, only wish I could be there.

Whaaaaaaaaaaattttttttttttttttttttt???111?!?!?!?!!!?!?!

 

You really think so. I think it was very pale in compassion to BoB. It was good...but no where near as good.

 

Would so love to be there for this but not gunna happen :(

Still better effects and production as a whole. "Helmet for my pillow" and "With the old breed" :izmena:

I had watched the pacific before BoB so maybe I'm biased.

 

P.S. Keep negrep high!

Interesting. I watched BoB 3 times but never managed to watch more than 3 episodes of "Pacific". Never caught my attention.

Even the behind the scenes documentary shows the quality of it.

I agree that "Pacific" is good TV show. My problem is that "BoB" is about war in European theater while "Pacific" is, well, in Pacific. I have no emotions about Yanks fighting Japs and cannot get myself into whole story. "BoB" story simply blew me away maybe because I know a lot about those events and could not wait to see what happens next. I had no such feeling in "Pacific" and that pushed me away. Watching endless slaughter in a beach or a jungle on some island, simply not my kind of fun.

Nevertheless, I will try to give "Pacific" another chance when I get some time because I watched only 3 episodes. Maybe it gets better later.

Thanks everyone for such an awesome reaction! :honoring: BoB is one of my fav series, and I'm so glad we are taking part in this educational mission through sponsoring their reunion.
