The AUD$200 million 2010 War HBO Miniseries The Pacific

Overrwhelmed by the fact that this is the most expensive tv miniseries ever made by HBO, I am waiting this series so badly. Luckily they have setup a nice homepage, featuring all plots and details on each cast and episodes. The Pacific consist of 10 parts with three major battles and three man's (Basilone, Sledge, Leckie) war diary. This miniseries is about marine corp agains the japanese intrusion right after the pearl harbour attack. Casted in Australia with the so expensive cost up to AUD$200 million, this movie bring back the World War II fanboy from the old Band of Brothers to their tv screen.
