Just spotted this on HBO. Anyone else watched it yet?



  • HBO Valley of Tears series

    The first two episodes out here in the Nordics, looks like that's my weekend settled!

    I've heard of it. Looks interesting.

    I've got a friend over in Haifa who was a medic during the Yom Kippur War.

    I'll have to check it out!

    Just watched the first episode, setting the scene, introducing the protagonists, all very well made. Then, boom(!), it is Saturday, October 6th. Man, it got intense towards the end!

    Episode 2 tomorrow. I won't quite yet start to make Generation Kill comparisons, but, my attention, they certainly got it

    I just watched episode 2/(8) and can't help but throw a little spoiler here: there seems to be some Syrians on their way through the Valley of Tears!

    Oh but this is good, attention to detail is excellent. Like with war movies /series, the gear is a star on its own. Man those Sho't Kals are gorgeous here...

    Are the production values on a part with Band of Brothers, and The Pacific? If it's a quality production, I might consider adding it to my small war video collection.

    Long answer: Here's the trailer, see yourself:

    Short answer: absolutely!

    I made the comparison to Generation Kill, another HBO master series. Based on two episodes I've seen, this is right there with it.

    ...although it is far better than what the trailer implies. Two episodes down, six to go.

    Last year I was able to subscribe for a free 30 day trial subscription with HBO...not sure if that deal is still available...

    Crossroads and 76mm thanks for the tip!

    I'll look into it. If I can't get it or the price is too high guess I'll just wait for the DVD.

    Thanks again!
    Regards,
    John

    If you don't have one yet, go for a Chromecast device while you're at it. You can then have the stream at your main screen by just a click of a mouse.

    I am into having watched six of the is it ten episodes now. While the first two episodes certainly got your attention, things have calmed a bit into spending more time with individuals and small team dynamics. It is all very impressive still, as you learn more about the various protagonists, their backgrounds etc. It is Sunday Oct 7th now, and things certainly look grim yet.

    Among other observations, HBO Nordic has somehow screwed the Original Audio (Hebrew) play list, with episodes 1, 2, 5, and 6 there. So after having waited for a few days that to change, I jumped and watched episodes 3 and 4 with the dubbed English audio. Oh, but that was awful! Stay clear if you can

    Really waiting to see the last four (?) episodes.

    PS Some one give this crew a new Sho't Kal, and quick!

    I don't have HBO so haven't watched this yet, but I've been surprised with other series how bad dubbing can ruin the whole shebang. So now I try to use subtitles only with foreign-language stuff.

    Same with an Amazon fire stick--now on sale for $28.

    Amen to that. At least there’s the choice with HBO Nordic, hope with you lot as well!

    Just watched episodes #7 and #8 today. Oh, but they are good, they've quite slowed the things down, we are learning more about the characters, and what a bunch they are.
