The new series on HBO, someone watched the trailers already?
Looks disturbing, funny and realistic - good sfx, too.
I hope it comes dubbed to europe, I either have to watch the series online...

Generation Kill - Iraq
This series looks very promising, cross fingers that the american audience won't nuke it, cuz' they still avoid anything related with the iraq war...
Well, hope it gets it's attention and more than seven episodes to follow.
Guess they wanna made some anti-war bullshit, but it looks nice from the trailers. Wanna make me go to irag, too. Shoot me some arabs. :)
Saw part one and it sucked. The show is really I mean REALLY pro war to the point where I can guess that some of the characters are going to change their opinion of war after they see enough combat. But I didn't mind that it is a twist from other shows like Band of Brothers where they just wanted to do their time and go home, these marines want to fight.
My biggest grip is the dialog. The series is supposedly based on a book so I'm assuming that the author had to have been in contact with some soldiers but most of them talk like retarded high schoolers. I mean the number of times that they say "Brah" and "Dawg" should be cut back as it annoys the crap out of me. The acting is awful.
I'm not giving up on the show though since I watch all of the crap that was "John From Cincinnati", and war shows and movies are usually well done so this should pick up once the combat starts.
Second ep had the 1st real combat and was much better
