    This episode was good and all but it did go by a bit slowly, everyone hates it when an episode drags on, especially when its over an hour long per episode. But it seems like thats the usual with each episode, a slow first half and fat second half.



    This ep didnt have too much action but did have some good scenes, which developed the characters better to the audience. Overall it has to be a 9 out of 10 from me, great but not perfect in my opinion.



    Also, I cant wait for the final ep, as much as I love the show, cant wait for it to end (that sounded alot worse than I intended).moreless

    Generation Kill continues to impress with me with just how realistic the mini-series is. You can relate to and probably know someone just like each and every single character on the program. In a way you hate every character, but the same reasons you dislike them are why they are great. Seeing "Iceman" tearing other soldiers apart and protecting his men is some compelling character development. Compliments aside, this episode still dragged on and seemed like much longer than an hour and fifteen minutes in length. I do not like the reporter being there, however, he is needed to maintain the realism the show's producers are going for. I read a review that cited how unimaginable it is to see an Iraqi woman, with a sharp-tongue no less, approaching the soldiers and I have to concur.



    Still, the positives outweighed the negatives and this was a good episode to get viewers excited about next week's conclusion.moreless

    • Cpl. Josh Ray Person : You know, Iraqis don't really seem good at fighting. But then, they never really completely surrender either.

    • strong>Cpt. Dave 'Captain America' McGraw: Each man sees things differently in combat. Right now at any time we could die. It's almost enough to make you lose your sanity. To remain calm and stay in a place where you think you will die, that too is the definition of insane. Nate, you have to become insane to survive in combat.

    • Lt. Nathaniel Fick: Walt, finish your report, get it to me asap. You did nothing wrong, but we're gonna see if there's a better way to stop these cars.
      Cpl. Josh Ray Person: Walt's got a great way, LT. Shoot the driver, stop the car.

    • Lt. Nathaniel Fick: You can f*ck with me but do not, I repeat, do not f*ck with my men!
