I loved that series.

The writers of BoB are creating a new show called The Pacific. Steven Spielburg and Tom Hanks are producing. I'll have to subscribe to HBO again if this series is as good as BoB. I can't find when it's supposed to start though. :rolleyes: I think February 2010, but I'm not sure...

The Pacific is to be based primarily on two memoirs of U.S. Marines: With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie.[2] The series will tell the stories of the two authors and Marine John Basilone, as the war against the Empire of Japan rages.

Given the literary sources mentioned above, the series will feature well-known battles involving the 1st Marine Division, such as Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester, Peleliu, and Okinawa, as well as Basilone's involvement in the Battle of Iwo Jima.

Here's a trailer:

I was given the DVD box set 2 Christmase' ago. I loved it! The music is outstanding through out. What surprised me was my wife Lor enjoyed it and cried during most episodes.I didn't think she would have enjoyed it as much as she did.

I watch it when ever I can, but have never watched it from beginning to end (in sequence). I have the DVD set, and need to do that though!

One of my all time favorites. I get hooked whenever I see it on TV. There was a BoB marathon this weekend, which I watched of course. Instead of doing my taxes. I'm sure the IRS will understand.
