Generation Kill...
« on: July 18, 2008, 06:58:28 PM »
...is a miniseries about the first days of the Iraqi war, done by the makers of the Wire.  The first episode was quite good... like the Wire, a lot of the focus was on poor conditions caused by insufficient equipment and inefficient bureaucracy.  They seem to be doing a good job of being politically neutral thus far, except perhaps for the portrayal of Iraqis working with Americans, who are (apparently) lazy, vicious and corrupt.  Anyway if done well the show could turn out to be a modern-age Band of Brothers.   New episodes on Sunday and there are supposed to be six more.

As opposed to the ancient 2001 Band of Brothers?

But yeah, the first episode was fucking deadly.

I meant modern in terms of subject matter.  The relative antiquity of WWII is not something I can speak intelligently on.  :P

Makers of The Wire ay? Well it should fucking kick ass then... hopefully the American army has a few members who are black drug dealers... and hopefully Omar shows up with a shot gun at some point
