Nice find - shame I heard Sky Movies had bought it...meaning anyone (in the UK at least) has to take out Sky Movies to be able to watch it...that's what I heard...the disclaimer is my source could be wrong.

The expectations are very high for this production, which is the most expensive miniseries ever. Like "Band of Brothers", there aren't any big-ticket stars in the cast. I've seen many photos of the filming in progress, and they've take pains to show the changes in uniforms/weapons of the USMC from 1942-1945.

As a disclaimer, this series focuses on the battles of the 1st Marine Division (Guadalcanal-New Britain-Peleliu-Okinawa). It is NOT an all-inclusive portrayal of the Pacific War. Two of the three main characters portrayed (Robert Leckie and Eugene Sledge) joined the Marines AFTER Pearl Harbor. John Basilone, the third principal character, is a special case. He served in the US Army in the mid-thirties, and then signed up for the Marines in July 1940.

The one thing that "BoB" lacked was in development of the main characters, as there were so many. "The Pacific" will give us a closer look at three men. Given the horrific nature of Pacific ground combat, a balanced "humanistic" look should prevent the series from becoming a blood-soaked gorefest.

Was a little disappointed to see the "chick" bits I mean it isn't going to be a Pearl Harbour - but still

Still, it'sa trailer - we'll see how "those" pieces fit into the story. I'm just a little sceptical when I see scenes like that and tend to think they've been inserted to attract a female audience

I agree, Saving Private Ryan and Band of Brothers did not have those kind of scenes....it focus on the men and the battle.I feel the added love scenes are going to ruin this new series.

I'm with you. Could we put it off for, say, 20-30 years?

A lot of this was filmed here in my home town of Melbourne, so I am keen to see how they turned back the clock to show Melbourne in the 1940's.
