    Saw the title and thought this might be a documentary about Opie's college air guitar band.

    No, that would be Band of Brothermans: Masters of the Air.

    Kind of cheap that they're using the Band of Brothers name. I wonder if they'll show the Stalags where some of these guys ended up during the war.

    Although I do want see more depictions of the role of blacks during World War II, I could live with this.

    Are you sure? I thought American Blacks were the only pilots, what with Red Tails and the Tuskegee Airmen being made into major motion pictures.

    I stealth edited it, because I remembered that 'chow hall' was a Navy term we used.

    "Mess tent" is what the grunts call it, right?

    Yeah... that all sorts of stunk.

    Glory.

    Glory was an awesome "black war movie".

    Hopefully they don't skimp on the CGI budget.

    Funk the cgi. Band of Brothers was before they even had high def and it was still amazing. It was all about the characters.

    The Pacific just didn't have the characters. Some great actors... but the characters just weren't memorable. I mean... I thoroughly enjoyed Pacific, but it didn't live up to my expectations... and I can't even really put my finger on why it didn't work as well as it should have.

    BAND OF BROTHERS is probably my favourite show of all time.

    If that last episode doesn't leave you in tears you're a piece of garbage.

    They're going to spend a lot of time in the air. There's gonna be lots of bombers, lots of bombers blowing up, lots of shit bombed, and lots of cities burning.
