The Pacific

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

The Pacific is a ten-part television World War II mini-series, produced by HBO, Seven Network Australia and DreamWorks, that premiered on March 14, 2010 Similar to the 2001 mini-series Band of Brothers, The Pacific focuses on the United States Marine Corps' actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations. The Pacific was spearheaded by Bruce McKenna (co-executive producer), one of the main writers on Band of Brothers. Hugh Ambrose, the son of Band of Brothers author Stephen Ambrose, served as a project consultant. More Information/homepage
Have any of you guys watched this yet? I've only watched the first episode so far, but fuck it seems good. It's dramatic, action packed, and can be fucked up as hell. It does a very good job at showing how fucked up war is, hell even the first episode made me sad. If you haven't started watching it already, I suggest you start now.

    I saw a commercial for it while watching The Discovery Channel, It looked pretty interesting. Is it based off of real battles, or ones made up by the writers?

    My friend who has like the band of brothers box set likes it, says it's not nearly as good though. I wanna see it... But I haven't even seen band of brothers. Also, I'm tired of movies and games about this battle. America won with no help, jesus christ we get it.

    Starting in "canal" 4.4 I think I watch at least one episode. I like this kind of series and movies. They have that something what makes good show. I don't mean that war is cool or anything. But Warmovies, series and games are best that you can get. Btw: "Canal in Finland is like HBO in America only difference is that Canal don't do any own seiries or movies. They only show new, good and classic movies and series"

    It's fucking awesome My Dad and I are watching it because the whole Pacific Theater was a big part of Marine Corps history, and since I want to join the Marines I wanted to learn about all that Col. "Chesty" Puller, John Basilone, Iwo Jima, Okinawa It's all good stuff

    I actually thought you were selling a set because that picture looked quite nice, but after I had seen the text I saw it was about a series.
