    I missed the whole Band of Brothers thing. I'm more in to documentories about the USAAF since I love the bombers and fighters, but this one looks like something I'll enjoy. My fingers are crossed for sure.

    BoB was the best war film I have ever seen. The casting was dead on, and they did a fantastic job of getting the characters correct. The ending of each section was interviews with the original people in the unit.

    I am thinking of getting HBO just to watch the new one. If it is half as good, they it will be awesome.

    The USAAF isn't around anymore ;). I'm more of a European theater junkie anyways. I do agree that carrier landings are tougher, but I can't help what I like.
