Default 'The Pacific' - High-Def Digest Review

Our review of 'The Pacific' has just been posted. Aaron says this HBO series is well worth your time. This Blu-ray release features fantastic video, demo-quality audio, and plenty of extras. A must own release.

Good review, although I was slightly let down by the series, thanks to Band of Brothers inflating my expectations beyond belief. Still a series very much worth your time, it's just a series you have to put into perspective first

Same as Onslaught. I enjoyed the series but, despite going into it making an effort not to have any expectations, this just didn't measure up to BoB. That said, there's no shame in being 2nd place to what many people think is the greatest miniseries of all time.

So for that reason, if a person hasn't seen BoB for some reason, I'd recommend watching The Pacific first.

Will pick this up, but I'll wait for a price drop.

Yeah, I waited till BoB was 47.99 at Walmart. So, I'm probably going to hold off till then. No rush. But, excited to see it nonetheless.

Any game that features paid loot boxes should be rated AO.

My thoughts were similar to those expressed above (TP falls short of BoB), but I've watched the series again, in order without the 1-week break between, and I'm enjoying it much more. Is it as good as BoB? Maybe...

One thing I will say: The audio is incredible. It's probably the best I've ever heard. I didn't think audio could get much better than what was on BoB, but I think TP will eclipse it.

Just picked up Band of Brothers last week at Target for $34.99, therefore, I will wait for the same sale price of $34.99 or less for The Pacific.

Yeah I didn't really connect with this as I did with BOB, but its still an amazing achievement. I will be waiting for a price drop though and not day-oneing it like I did for BOB. I'm hoping too that a second viewing will help, but I do remember a lot of, why did they feel this event important to document?, or why are we following such annoying characters?

I had not seen BoB before watching this broadcast last Spring so I was blown away. I picked up BoB shortly after this one wrapped up and really enjoyed it, too. I will definitely add this to my collection as soon as the price comes down a bit.
