    Well that's probably because it's the only Pacific documentary I can think of? Pretty neglected part of televised History, next to the Korean war.

    There are tons of great shows and its hard to rank them in an order, but personally The Wire will always be #1 and I just rewatched all of it a month or so ago and the jump in quality from season 2 to season 3 is incredible.

    I just downloaded Treme the other day, watched two episodes but not really sure where the show is heading other than 'New Orleans is awesome save it!!!!' perspective which would be lame, I think.

    Haven't seen The Corner or this Homicide one, wonder if it's all right.

    There are a shitload of films on the Pacific War. I've also seen quite a few documentaries myself.

    I mean out of that list how many have ever been talked about? I know River Kwai and Letters from Iwo Jima, but one was recent and the other isn't really about the Pacific Theatre in the sense of The Pacific. I'm also sure there are plenty of PBS WW2 footage but that's about it in that aspect.

    ... and lets not forget about The Thin Red Line. Truly one of the best war films ever made.

    The Corner is worth watching, but it's like if you took all the police and drug dealing out and only followed Bubbles and his people the whole time. At times it's incredibly difficult to watch.

    The Pacific pales compared to Band of Brothers

    I always thought BoB was pretty overrated.

    So far The Pacific gets my vote ... better directing, cinematography and acting. But then again i'm only 5 episodes in, and i've watched BoB only once. I need to watch them both at least two times before i can make a solid decision.

    Grimm Season 3 is monster fun so far.
    Season 2 was slow.

    Done with Episode 2 and 3.
    2: had some real EWWW! moments.
    Good fighting too.
    3: Wonder what makes Nick tick...

    Yea, last nights episode was pretty powerfull. I knew she was going to get killed off this season, but not like that ... this really opens things up(even more) for the series.

    If you've finished Breaking Bad, I recommend you check this out. Pretty cool.

    I'm guessing season 7 is going to be final for SOA now. There's no hope for a happy ending any more so its death or prison for everyone involved I think. (And I assume death)

    Correct, next season (7) is the final. If it plays out supposably accordingly based on Shakespeare etc...yeah not ending all yippy nicey. However, though Sutter mentions it all ends next season...rumor has it due to the success he may introduce a prequel thing featuring the incarnation of the club. Like Jax's father's club etc. Im all in.
