And we have just one more installment left of The Pacific, the much ballyhooed mini-series by HBO; one that I just have not been a fan of.
While I can talk about the lack of direction, or the irrational dialogue, or the scenes that drag on for too long, but instead I want to look at this issue from a different perspective.
Any show should have a message that it sends its fans. A moral lesson, a great romance, something. When you watch The Pacific, what is the message? That war was tough and sometimes American soldiers were not the heroes we thought they were? You could have got that from the History Channel.
