Band of Brothers is one of the great TV series that has aired on TV. It followed the lives of a group of American soldiers from Easy Company that had to fight their way through Europe during World War II. The series blew me away. Now Steven Speilberg and Tom Hanks have come back together to bring us a new World War II series on HBO called The Pacific, which follows three American G.I.'s in the Pacific theater, from their initial landing at Guadalcanal, to Iwo Jima and Okinawa, and all the way through to V-J Day and back stateside.
I'm extremely excited for this new series. It looks like they put the same amount of effort and detail into this series as they did with Band of Brothers. If you're a history buff like myself, then prepare yourselves to see what it was like to fight in the Pacific during WWII.
The ten-part series won't air until March 2010, but you can see what's in store for you in the behind-the-scenes featurette and the trailers below.
