Just watched episode three. Not that great, IMO. Mainly a bunch of drama, sex, and a near court martial

Really? Kinda disappointing, I don't think I ever thought about any BoB episode as "not great" or "okay," they were all "amazing" or "very good."

Let me put it this way: it was weak. They were just on leave. It was like when Winters went to Paris, except a lot more boring.

Watched episode... four? (Don't judge me, I'm sick today)
Wasn't bad. Showed some of the psychological aspect of warfare. A good episode, IMO.

Yeah, don't get me wrong I really liked part four, but all the commercials with him having to burn the intelligence tent if they got overrun and stuff made me think that there was going to be a lot more action.
I still thought it was good, especially the whole drama around the Jap pistol...I love hearing about the souveniers they pick up, especially pistols.
When he volunteered it as a bribe I almost died cyclops

Yeah, the commercials were making it out to be just an amazing, epic, Iwo Jima-esque eisode, and it looks like they're doing it with the next episode, as well. (The next one is going to be Pelileu and Chesty will be there! YES!)

Once again, not as good as I thought it would be, but still good. The next part looks really good though, I've actually been waiting for this episode for a bit.

I really, really liked that episode, and the next one will only be better. I've decided you can't really compare The Pacific and Band of Brothers. They're practically different animals.

I agree completely. Not to mention that htey're completely different battles. The Pacific was a completely different theater than its European counterpart. WW2 started in the Pacific, and thet's where it ended.

Besides, the Pacific was a "no-surrender" war. If you surrendered, you'd wind up dead before long. The Marines were fighting a suicidal enemy, which means an enemy that will stop at nothing. The war in Europe was fighting a Christian enemy, meaning they believed in surrender and "fair" treatment of prisoners. Like I said, comparing BoB and TP is like comparing night and day.

Watched Six last night. It was one of the best I've seen. I can't wait for seven. I think the series is getting better and better as it goes on. It even seems as though Leckie has become less of a shitbird.

Awww hey I like Leckie!!! I thought six was reallyyyy good, and I also can't wait for the rest.
Question though: what happened to the guy that was friends with Leckie and a main Charecter, he kinda always looked like he was smiling, and was the one that said "w-w-we really tore em up" in the first episode? Don't know his name but he's a main charecter, and I didn't see him at all last episode...what happened to him??

Hmmmm..... Are you talking about the dude who shot himself, or.....? I don't remember. It could have been Sledgehammer's buddy who got sent home, maybe.... I don't know, not ringing a bell. Gimme a description using hair, facial features, etc. etc.

Nope, not Sidney Phillips...wait I thought the guy who shot himself in 4 was just an extra...I didn't know he was a main carecter?! NOOO was that him?! I never got a good look at his face.

He had dark hair, shortish, uhmm...he's one of the main guys, he's with 'em when they're drinking coffee back on the ship in the second one and the waiter asks if the fighting was bad, because he had heard it was. He was friends with Leckie, and the guy who just went home with Leckie who calls him "Peaches". what was HIS name too??

AHAA!!!! PFC Lew "Chuckler" Juergens!! That's his name...but I re-watched the part where the man shot himself and I can't tell if it's him.

To be honest, I only know a couple of the guys; Leckie, Sledgehammer, the weird dude with the eyes that's with Sledgehammer, Chesty (how could I not know Chesty?), and the Gunny. It'll take me a couple of watchings to get everybody's names.

Wait.... remember the part where they're on Guadalcanal and one of the guys steals a bunch of Army's rations, and Leckie gets sick on peaches? Does anybody else see a theme here?

Yeah, that's right, I don't know anybody's name, but I remember the peaches! Laughing

You can go on the website and look up charecters. Grr this is just really bugging me...I'm guessing it was him that committed suicide Sad

I guess that would be why Leckie was kind of all Shocked , but I'd imagine watching someone shoot themself would have that affect too. Hmm.... try emailing HBO or Tom Hanks! Laughing

I stopped watching after the first episode. I'll wait for repeat marathons Very Happy
I'm not all that impressed by the series (other than episode one).

Durkee, I get the feeling that if you watched the last three..or even part two, you'd be impressed Smile
