Last night HBO began it's The Pacific mini-series. Being the WWII history nut that I am I felt obligated and my personal duty to resubscribe to HBO to watch it. =)
I wasn't disappointed. What Band of Brothers did for 101st Airborne, I suspect The Pacific will do for the US Marines.
If you have a friend with HBO, think of excuses to be over at their house on Sunday evenings. Don't wait for the DVD release before seeing this series.
