Default "The Pacific" on HBO

From Hanks and Spielberg, who brought you "Band of Brothers" (IMO, the best DVD ever made).

Starts March 14. I can't even say how many times I've watched "Band of Brothers"...too many to count.....but I'm excited about this!

Band of Brothers was on here free-to-air, but true to usual form the station (Channel 7) broadcast it irregularly & late at night, as seems to happen with many good imported shows. Let's hope they do better with The Pacific...it looks awesome We have to wait until it has finished the US screening before we get it though.


The R&R scenes were filmed in Melbourne:


(ha look at the old trams lol)

I plan on making the attempt to watch this HBO series. My Father fought in the Pacific Theater in the Marine Corps during WWII. He was also with Chesty Puller's bunch during the Korean conflict.

My Dad, too, in the Army. He was taken POW in the Phillippines (Corregidor) and sent to a camp in Manchuria for four years.

He LOVED Band of Brothers. Just wish he was here to see the "Pacific" version.

This is one show I don't wanna spoil with a hadji copy.
