1. I love the show ‘the pacific’. It focuses heavily on drama, characters and war. I like the show that makes you feel connected with the characters that leads in building up an emotional attachment to them. It makes a series like this more realistic and gives it much more drama. The battle scenes are gallantly my favorite scenes of the show because they depict the horrors of war and they really give you a thrill while you watch them. The show is not at all bad but overall it just doesn't come near to ‘Band of Brothers’.
3. There is no similarity between Band of Brother and The Pacific. In ‘Band of Brother’ the characters were more interesting and appealing. In ‘The Pacific’ the focus is too much set on the war itself. There were a lot of battles in the jungle which looked the same. It shows the same tension and same movement of the Japanese soldiers. The Japanese soldiers were constantly running towards the bullets and were dying. I don't think the Japanese soldiers were that stupid or idiot. Overall the location of ‘the Pacific’ is excellent. I liked the environment in which the episodes were taken as all the things seem very realistic.
2. This is one of the best miniseries I have ever been through. The stories of Leckie and Sledge are great and moving while Basilone's tale of going from soldier to an American war hero is captivating but isn't as propelling as the other two characters' stories. Sledge and his friend "Snafu" are my two favorite characters between this series and its predecessor, Band of Brothers. The Pacific is a very special series. ‘The Pacific’ is much darker. It shows the effect that war has on the individual not the group. In The Pacific, the soldiers aren't unrealistic "heroes". They are human and must survive the hell that is war in all its cruelty. Both series are Very different, as most other reviewers have pointed out.
1. I am a greatest fan of the original ‘Band of Brothers’. And even it forced me to realize that some of us do not get the feeling of getting close to the individuals that much as I did with BoB. ‘The Pacific’ theater was somewhat different from it. The Japanese warfare is quite dissimilar. I don’t believe in comparing Pacific to BoB as it is equal to compare Apples and Oranges. I think that this miniseries is a great piece of historical story telling. This miniseries has the power in getting our younger generation interested in this part of our history so it has done a wonderful thing. I would recommend for anybody watching this series to go and investigate the facts, read and educate oneself about the soldiers that fought for our freedom and for democracy. I salute all the Veterans of our past and present.
