Man that was a great mini series. I have it all saved on my Tivo and will be tranferring on CD-V. Next Sunday is the interview of actual persons the story was based on. Gee I did not know it was based on an [b]actual Easy(Echo) Co.[/b]. Man I hope they make another series like this one. Oh BTW who saw the sex scene with boobies a couple of weeks ago. Can't beat that. Blood, Guts, Guns, Glory and most of all BOOBIES. Me likey a lot. Anyone else get hooked on the show?

Hmm....no favorite episodes?

I think "Market Garden" was the best. Not fair to judge as they were actually events and not storylines. I wish the "Battle of the Bulge" was more exciting, but that is how it was for them, so one cannot complain. Although the last episode, and them in the Wolf's Lair was damn cool. Imagine how that felt?

Absolutely, I thought the [i]exact[/i] same thing. You could not put those feelings into words. Still the one next week with the real guys of the company on at 20:30 EST.

Don Malarkey lives close to here and one fo the local talk shows had him on today. They asked if the show was belivable and he said absolutly. He said everything you saw actually happened. Not always in cronological order, but they had to mix some things around to fit them all in. Was very surprised to hear that. He did say he was still waiting on the boxed set the HBO folks promised all the Easy Co guys that helped with the technical advising. Aviator [img]www.milpubs.com/aviator.gif[/img]

That's what every young American male out of high school is looking for. If they put that stuff in the recruiting pamphlets they would have to turn guys away. The best episode was the one from First Sgt. Liptons perspective, forget the name but it was the attack on Foy. Read the book L.T.

I would have to agree, the show Breaking Point, the one from Lipton's viewpoint, was the best.

The only good part about it being over is that I can finally cancel HBO. Cable costs have been killig me. I was hoping that they would do another marathon but it doesn't look like it...

Yup VCD and CD-V is the same. I am waiting on the interview of the living members of Easy Company this weekend and then I will see if I can be successfull at writing it. For legal purposes I don't think I can "sell" copies. But you know downloading onto Bearshare or other file sharing medium won't be illegal at all I think. I will let you guys know.
