Yeah, that's the thing. I'm waiting until I can give it the attention I know it deserves!

Mark, once you start watching it and get past the first episode, which really isn't bad, but compared to the others it is a bit slow, you'll find time to give it attention. It really pulls you along.

Sit down now!!! and start watching.

I'd rather watch Luke's twin sister.

P.S. I found episode one to be a little slow (YMMV). If, after watching it, you find yourself saying "Gee? What's all the fuss about," just wait until the series gets down and dirty.


Round one may have been off to a slow start but it really was an integral part of the series to give a good insight of Capt. Sobel, which ultimately leads to the following scene ...

"Capt. Sobel, Capt. Sobel..."

Just one of my many favorite scenes of the movie. \:\)

I agree completely, Rick. Heh! I just finished episode 10 which contained that scene.

By the way, the Blu-ray version has some interesting special features. Be sure to watch the whole thing at least once without activating any special features. Then, on the second or third time through, try turning on the "Interactive Field Guide - In the Field with the Men of Easy Company." It's a very interesting graphic time line that rests at the bottom of the screen. It contains tidbits of knowledge, photos, and even videos of the real men and events.

If you don't want to watch the entire thing again, using your remote's cursor you can jump from benchmark to benchmark and just look at the additional material. I haven't tried the other interactive feature, "Picture-in-Picture Commentary - In the Words of Easy Company." I don't believe these features are available on the standard definition version.
