Ah, this is nothing compared to the complaints I've read on the "Pacific" fan forum. Stuff about nudity ("gasp! the Marines make love to girls, and they SHOW it!") , the Marines doing "bad" things ("John Wayne never dug a gold tooth out of a dead Japanese!"), and various other nonsense.
Frankly, THIS forum has been pretty well behaved.
I think most of you have grown into the series as it has progressed. Just as BoB, it takes a while to know who's who. Of course, it also helps that HBO On Demand keeps older episodes in view, so one can watch them again.
Oh, for the record, I love the series and have no major gripes with it. Besides, I have the books, so I wasn't expecting a chapter and verse recital. Just like BoB, some of the factual occurrences are changed and characters are composited. It's HBO, not a documentary.
