timmy from jurassic park and the naked bad guy from die hard 2

i really hope the cast can deliver amazing performances like nearly every single actor from band of brothers did. the portrayals of almost any major character would have been up for oscars were it a feature film

I've seen the actor that played Guarnere showing up on Showcase specials every once in a while. Plus I think he was in "Catch Me If You Can" and a few Sopranos episodes.

pretty excited. Band of Brothers is single handedly the best war epic ever made.

I just looked up my Uncle Alfies service record from the pacific. I can't imagine what it was like to be 16 & assualt those beaches in WWII. He served in the US ARMY 112Th Calvery, his action activity was on, Australia,Woodlark Island, Arawa New Britian island, Aitape New Guinea, Philipines leyte, luzon, tatamia Japan from Feb 1943 to Sept 2 1945.
His citations: Good Conduct Medal, Asiatic Pacific Service medal, 5 bronze stars & Arrowhead, Combat Infantry rifle award. Turned down the Purple Heart when he was hit by a mortar fragment and had his head wounded. stayed in action. Reason for turning down purple heart..."did not want his father to be mad at him"

Alfie sounds...hard to kill

so pumped on this!!!

exclaimation points!!

Meh. First ep of this was defniitely not as good as the first ep of BoB. From all of the stuff i've seen about the pacific front, this ep definitely reiterated what I gore and blood fest and retarded body counts.

I think this will be good, but for some reason the european front has a certain romanticism about it that I don't feel for the pac front, but still a good ep.

First episode was awesome, as expected. I'm glad they decided not to totally follow the Band of Brothers formula, where as the first two or three episodes were getting to know the soldiers and what have you. This seems to be more streamlined, where you'll learn about them over the course of the war.

Don't get me wrong, Band of Brothers is probably my all time favorite series, but I'm glad they are just doing something a little different.

Anyway, cannot wait for next week.

Was supposed to have HBO for the premiere, but the stupid digital cable box wouldn't receive the signal so gotta wait until tomorrow. Thank god for time shifting.

i liked it, its kinda hard to compare it to BoB though because thats my all time favorite movie/show/series ever. pumped on being stoked for next week.

first episode was ok...

The formula for THE PACIFIC was done well. This series is going to be diff from BOB wich is nice. It's supposed to focus on the each marines ways of dealing w/ survival & keeping themselves from going insane.
Tonights episode was awesome...cept those Marines would have some high n tights whats with the Johnny Depp hair cuts?

the high and tight wasnt the regulation haircut back then. the grooming standard in those days called for hair to be "off the ears and above the eyebrows". the way the soldiers look in this and band of brothers is period-correct.
