IN WHICH THE OCEAN'S NAME IS A BITTER IRONY: I learned something while catching up on Sepinwall's loving and compulsively enjoyable archival recaps of Band of Brothers, among my favorite seasons of television ever. Actually I learned a lot, but the one thing I wanted to share with you is that HBO has released a trailer for the long-in-coming follow-up to Band of Brothers, Hanks & Spielberg's The Pacific. Obviously there's already a lot of great recent material covering some of this ground already, from Clint Eastwood's Flags of our Fathers/Letters from Iwo Jima diptych to Tsuyoshi Hasegawa's Racing the Enemy, but it's not as if Band of Brothers lacked for prior art, and look how that turned out. I'm pretty insanely excited for this.
