The Pacific

Recommended Posts



A 10-part mini-series from the creators of "Band of Brothers" telling the intertwined stories of three Marines during America's battle with the Japanese in the Pacific during World War II.




This sort of sneaked up on me, I hadn't realized it's coming out so soon - am I just living under a rock or something? Wait, don't tell me, I know this one... anyway, 9:00 EST Sunday (3/14) on HBO, two hours later on bittorrent for everyone else :P Figured it was relevant to yall's interest. I'm pretty pumped.

I'm rather excited for this. Have been for years, ever since I heard the first rumours of it, but recently that's died down when I realised that, not having access to HBO, I won't be able to see it until it comes out on Blu-ray. (Something this epic can't be seen in just DVD quality, much less bootleg quality!)


I really do hope it will be good. Eugene Sledge I first heard of in Ken Burns's The War, and I'm glad they're using his memoir as a cornerstone of their series. I just hope the Pacific theatre is shown for what it really was - a bloodbath comparable to the savagery on the German-Russian front - and not desensitised. I also hope they did a good editing job this time. (Two of the most glaring errors in BoB: Albert Blithe didn't die in 1948, he died in the 60s, and Hitler didn't die before 11 April 1945.)
