I really wish Tom Hanks would shift his focus to the Korean war. No one remembers Korea and its veterans. It would be refreshing to see some light shown on their sacrifice. Not to mention it was a large tech war when the jet age really dawned. Yep lets send B-29s on bombing raids like we did in WW2, oh shit MiG's! Queue end of American piston engined bombers. Also I want to meet the genius that had P-51s go in and do A2G when they were well known for catching bullets in their radiators and crashing. We had plenty of P-47s in the ANG in the states. Oh god rambling about the air campaign in Korea I should stop now.

That was really fun to watch. This series has great potential
#61 Posted by Wes899 (2114 posts) -

Seems off to a good start. It's paced WAY quicker than BoB was. Didn't it take 2-3 for that to actually get rolling?

I like the main characters so far; all seem pretty likable.

It was a few of them, but that was kind of the highlight of the episode for me. Seems like it might be much darker compared to band of brothers. There was a lot of messed up stuff in the pacific theater, even though band of brothers touched on concentration camps, there is a lot they could do with the pacific.

So the kid from Jurassic Park has a heart murmur and can't go to war... But then he does go to war? And then the guy traveling through time with Bruce Willis in 12 Monkeys goes to war.. But then he comes back.  
1st episode was pretty good. Has my interest.

Anyone know where to watch this online

Just got finished with the first episode. Really impressed by it so far, the characterisation could have been more extensive but I think it did a great job in other areas. The script seems good which is something I was worried about after hearing it was produced during the writers strike. One thing that strikes me is that this show is really trying to show how savage the pacific theater of war was.  Really looking forward to episode two.

Pretty good so far.

#72 Posted by natetodamax (19206 posts) -

I feel the need to bump this because Part Two has left me speechless. Just sayin'.

#73 Posted by DavidPalmer (343 posts) -

Really enjoyed it. They really executed the shell shock storyline well and there were some badass parts to that one.

#74 Posted by Ryax (4630 posts) -

i hope there is some one like Lt spiers in this

#75 Posted by EpicSteve (6487 posts) -

If only this was a work of fiction and Cpt. Winters could make a cameo. ;)

Man, what a shitfest. What is with all the melodramatic love stories? Ugh, stopped at 6 and can't go any further.

#78 Posted by Megasoum (354 posts) -

I liked all episodes so far and I will continue to watch it (there is 2 episodes left) but I still prefer Band of Brothers by far. I think I must have watched Bob at least 10 times and I doubt I will rewatch Pacific.

@Metalideth: 
 
Basically this.
 
I just can't seem to get into this show.  There's so many damn characters that it's feels really spread out.  I will probably finish this show but so far BoB was way better.

I am not feeling any of these characters, none of them feel very close to each other. I still can't tell one character from another (sans sledge and lackey). Man I LOVED BoB, but this is terrible, I shall never forgive tom hanks. 
 
 
haha

No thanks. There's too much America Fuck-Yeah in that show for me to enjoy it without cringing.

#82 Posted by Mansemat (21 posts) -

Its pretty good but it's not Band of Brothers even though it ofcourse looks like it.
I'm currently on episode 4 and I'm afraid that one of the things that made Band of Brothers great (ie the relationship of the people) will be lacking in this series as the casualty rate is pretty high.
But it's too early too tell, it will most likely become another classic however.

Wow, The Pacific was one of the most inspirational shows Ive ever watched. I couldn't imagine going through what those boys had to go thru at such an early age. My favorite scene either had to be the Pelielu attack or the peach John Basilone gave to the new recruits before Iwo Jima.

#84 Posted by FakePlasticTree (449 posts) -

I watched the finale yesterday. It was a decent show, but in my opinion it was nothing compared to Band of Brothers. Although, John Basilone's final battle was incredible.

I agree. It was a pretty good show but nothing compared to Band of Brothers. They just didn't handle character development that well, especially in the beginning. Guys were dying and you didn't care because you had no idea who they were. I did enjoy some of the downtime stories with Lucky and Basilone. I didn't really care about Sledge and the Cajun guy was my favorite and I don't even know his name or anything about him.

I'll be getting this once it's out on DVD. I have Band of Brothers and it is by far one of the best pieces of cinematography I've seen. I also picked up John Adams (also by HBO), and that is great too. I highly recommend it. HBO does well with its mini series.

I teared up in the last episode.
