Default The Pacific and Band of Brothers

Hello guys and girls if any of you has ever seen Band of Brothers, this is a similar project with more or less the same team producing it. I am personally VERY happy about this, having watched BoB as a young child I purchased the box set not to long ago and am currently making my way through the series again.

Both stories are completly un-related however, are more or less the same with them both following characters that were involved in the Second World War. There is no guess where The Pacific is set, however for those wondering BoB is set during the European Theatre.

Heres the trailer-


Nyctophobia- Fear of the Dark Angel.

"No one ever spoke about of those two absent brothers. Their separate tragedies had seemed like aberrations. Had they, in fact, been warnings that no one had heeded?"

'Killing a man is like fucking, boy, only instead of giving life you take it. You experience the ecstasy of penetration as your warhead enters the enemy's belly and the shaft follows. You see the whites of his eyes roll inside the sockets of his helmet. You feel his knees give way beneath him and the weight of his faltering flesh draw down the point of your spear. Are you picturing this?'
'Yes, lord.'
'Is your dick hard yet?'
'No, lord.'
''What? You've got your spear in a man's guts and your dog isn't stiff? What are you, a woman?'

Awesome-sauce...BoB is a great series, and the book is excellent for fleshing out the story.

Very much looking forward to the Pacific Theatre been brought to life.

Yeah I can't wait to see this.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Very Cool I was wondering if they were going to a Pacific version. I'll be waiting to watch it.

Very cool. I'll have to start making room on the shelf for the inevitable purchase of the box set.
