Anyone catch part one? I thought it was great. Feels like it's moving quite fast though. Band of Brothers had a more drawn out beginning. I can't wait to see the next episode.

I set the DVR to record them all. Haven't started watching it yet though.

I thought it was a bit more drama-y than BOB...
Yeah, I could see that, but that might be a necessary evil in order to set up the characters. Like I said, BOB took the time to develop the characters in the beginning with their training. This show just jumps right into battle, so they're shot on time to get the viewers to care about the characters we're watching so to make up for it, they have to be a little more heavy on the drama. That might change as time goes on though.

Are you referring to "grey" download methods or does HBO actually provide a ligit source? Given the number of HBO shows that I've liked (Sopranos, The Wire, Rome, Band of Brothers) I'd be willing to pay to stream them. I'm not willing to pay $70+/mo to Time Warner to get it though. Usually I wind up waiting for them to hit Netflix.

Hello. Are you new to the internet?
Actually, no I'm not, but I don't use it to view or download any shows or series, so I guess I had blinders on. Can you possibly find it in your heart to forgive my ignorance?

Now where exactly was that help topic that told me how to "ignore" certain users?

Ah c'mon, I was just pulling your leg.

Yes, I forgive you. ;)

You can get a free account on HBO.com and watch the series....at least the first episode.

But yes...there are other ways....:D

While we're talking about shows, you guys should also check out Justified. First episode was on last night and it's quite good. Lots of gunplay. :D

Well, considering the bandwidth you take up here and the endless newbie type questions and comments we endure from you, I think that my sarcasm tolerance level may have been a bit low.

Ohhh, I see. So this site is just for people who know everything there is to know about guns? Questions aren't tolerated? Sorry, I wasn't born knowing everything like you were. We can't all be so lucky. :hissyfit:

I never said that at all and I certainly wouldn't pretend to know everything. One of the best things about this forum is the wealth of information you can gain. I was merely pointing out that your sarcasm wasn't appreciated.

Here's a good analogy... Instead of Frank telling you to look at the Leupold CQB (which by the way is a very good option), how would you like it if he or I had said: Hello, are you new to fireams (since you pissed your money away on NCStar)?

To be honest? I'd say "yeah, I am!" I'm not ashamed of being new to guns. Growing up poor will do that to you. I was only goofing around with you, but I seem to have a hard time doing that around here. Everyone is just so serious about everything.

OK..I watched E1 and I was underwhelmed. Strange amount of time seemingly wasted on character's back story, yet so little actually revealed. The single battle scene was interesting, but not absorbing. The scene where they pick away at the Japanese soldier in the water seemed gratuitous and strangely out of place.

If it doesn't get a lot better I won't continue to watch it.

One man's opinion.
