If this is half as good as BoB, I'll be happy. Anything more than that is just a bonus.

This is definitely going to have a different feel than BoB, but I agree, even if it's only half as good as BoB, it's still going to be excellent. Have there been any reviews of this yet?

damn, I don't have HBO this time around.

I remember watching Band of Brothers during it's original broadcast and was amazed by it (I was in high school back then). Where has the time gone?

And adjust for time zone differences if you live in Salt Lake City (for example).

^ No she's in it. And she said in her Esquire interview that she has a sex scene.
You can also see her in one of the trailers.

Just switched back over to HBO from Starz for this one. I figure I'll just get Spartacus off of streaming Netflix.

It said the show starts on HBOe @ 9pm here, but I'll take your word and adjust for an hour. I better adjust for another hour due to daylight savings time.

No HBO, no fun!

Can't wait to buy on Blu-Ray (maybe at Christmas time, if the price comes way down).

Hanks better keep his strange views on the War in the Pacific out of the movie, we DID NOT go to war against them becuase we did not understand them. We went to war becuase they bombed us 1st, then we took them out and won the war.

It would be great if NetFlex streams it in a few months, but I dought that.

I just saw a spot with one of the actors and when I saw the name realized it was the boy from Jurassic Park (Joe Mazello). He looks completely different, but I guess 17 years can do that for a person.

completely different? what are you talking about, he looks exactly the same except taller, his face has barely aged.
