    HC was showing WWII in HD, which was friggin badass real footage remastered to HD.....pretty amazing to see the true faces of the men who defended this country, instead of actors

    I bought Generation Kill the other day, which is a 7 part mini-series from HBO....I have to say it really was a great series... it all just seemed so accurate, how i would expect a marine division to be, 5 stars from me

    I would love too see another series like those. I would imagine something will be done with the current conflict going on.

    yeah, i really enjoyed Gen Kill...... I've heard rumors that HBO is in the making of doing two 10 part mini-series....one about the bombing of hiroshima and nagasaki...and one about the african tour of WWII

    I think that they are all good in their own sense....it just seems like more time was spent making Generation Kill and Band of Brothers.....I liked the Pacific, but I have to admit, it did seem like they kind of rushed production
