Just in case anyone wants to watch this and does not have HBO. My wife just told me and I am at this moment watching The Pacific on T101 on Directv. I don't know if they are going to show all the episodes or just a teaser preview(I hope not) but just thought I would share.
The Pacific is produced by Tom Hanks who also produced Band of Brothers, if The Pacific is anything like Band of Brothers then obviously it is a must watch. BoB should be required viewing IMO, it's just that damned good. If you have not seen it, well you should have and get off your ass and go rent it or buy it, it's worth every penny.
