    can't wait

    Though I feel like it will be less appreciated by the masses considering how glorified the European theater is compared to the Pacific. East coast bias IMO

    Well kinda. It's not a Ambrose book and as Ambrose recently pass away he won't be helping on it. I think his son is but :idk:.

    Haven't read the books that it's based so who knows. Band of Brothers was one of my favorite books I had ever read when BoB aired on HBO.

    Just looked them both up. A lot of different people on the Pacific. Some have returned but different writers, directors, and producers.

    Rewatched last year. It holds up, but still not as good as BOB.

    Watching this for the first time after doing a band of brothers rewatch. 6 episodes in and it’s underwhelming thus far

    Watching it right after band of brothers is a horrible idea.

    Still wasn’t bad though

    How can you get past the Guadalcanal scenes in ep 1 and be "underwhelmed?"

    Especially when you read the backstories on some of the guys. It was one of Rami Malek’s first big breaks as Snafu.
