Anyone been watching The Pacific at all? Have seen all the six that've come out so far, loving it. Being woefully ignorant of the fighting that took place in the Pacific during WWII probably helps, but it's crazy to realise how close the Japanese actually came to Australia. Think it's a real pity that they're only focusing on American soldiers though, because something like the Kokoda Track would've fit in really well IMO.
Seen the first two episodes that have come out on Channel 7 so far. Not really impressed so far and I really disliked the episode based in Melbourne. Band of Brothers was so much better but still a bit too go I guess.
Been watching the Home Improvement marathon this afternoon. So good

Yeah it was good to see 1940s Melbourne. I know it should be expected, coming from American producers, but it was so one sided.
I'm studying the history of American/Australian alliance right now and we just went over this time period so its annoying to see such a one sided account that ignores many of the other things that happened when American soldiers stayed in Australia. it's even more annoying to know that many people will now think its that way...if you know what i mean
Band of Brothers is a must see btw.

'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

Did it happen to mention the 'battle of Brisbane'?
Just watched the latest Doctor Who Episode. Loved it, but was so pissed off that it is a two parter. Next week is too far away.

I just watched the first three episodes of Eureka. Does an ongoing story ever develop or is each episode its own experimental mishap in a bubble?

Also been watching 'Gavin and Stacey' on his recommendation. It's also good.

I've been watching Curb Your Enthusiam on dvd and the show kills me with laughter. It reminded of Afridi's "ball biting" incident which seems exactly like something Larry would do on the show.
