I watched it - HBO Canada. Of course, you can download torrents as well online. Much like the Band of Brothers, this is a high quality mini series. Heavily graphic in battle scenes and very intense even in its depiction of the R and R scenes in Australia.

Yeah. I'll probably wait for the DVDs also. We don't have HBO and we don't download movies but I will see it. I'll bet it's on DVD by the end of the summer or so. In time for Christmas.

Here is a nice article on the military advisor's aspect of the production...

Link to USMC Combat Correspondent Association article featuring Captain Dale Dye of HBO's The Pacific

I tried to upload it, but the picture came out too small...

The Pacific will be available on DVD on Nov. 2, 2010. Like I said earlier, just in time for Christmas. You can preorder at Barnes & Noble if you're so inclined.

Always wonder about people thinking their only alternative is watching it conventionally on TV.

I downloaded the entire series, watched all of it on a 22 wide screen monitor and likely will eventually buy it online through my computer as well.

I have never required my Cable provider (provider, now THAT'S an oxymoron for you).

If you have a computer and the internet (and it appears you do) you have all you ever required to watch anything ever aired anywhere on this planet.

Yes it is indeed a difficult subject to address.

Fact one, everyone does it to some extent (spare me the denials).

Fact two, it's not nearly all it is said to be (but I'll stick to other hopeless arguments I suppose).

Essentially I only stated an obvious truth, and gave no specific directions on the process. Which I have no desire to do.

My main beef is I just wish the sources of all that is digital, would hurry up and get their collective 20th century butts here in the 21st century.

I have recently been following a show on a site that is actually doing just that.
They air shows legally in same time as air time. For a paid account, you get it a week in advance of the use the site for free crowd. The ad revenue dollars clearly can be arrived at in a host of means. There is a world outside of the 20th century methodology.

I buy my computer wargames via digital download processes that I find agreeable (Matrix Games and Slitherine). I'm happy to give the bird to companies not interested in not putting crap in the software.

The evidence is there, you CAN do business in a world that is incredibly pirate friendly.

Now revolutionary, would be cable services giving us ONLY the shows we wish, through their online services (which we get through cable in a lot of cases), and NOT wasting our dollars on 'package deals' that are no deal at all. For instance French channels. Screw the French. I'll let you know when I give a damn about their French channels (don't hold your breath).
And a long list of other crud I have no use for.
I'd like to be able to say 'yes to this show, no to that show, yes to this news channel, no to that one, and genuinely decide precisely what I want to pay for.
Wouldn't have cable service at all, but my wife insists on watching crap TV.

What I find hilarious though, is my internet services, newsgroups, newshosts, news indexers, I pay for them all through credit card. Paper trail, all entirely visible, and as I see it, NOT ONE BYTE HASN'T BEEN PAID FOR. Disclaimers are what they are, and they are also massively idiotic.
'Oh no, I won't use your service to download illegal data'. Then you look at ALL the data is essentially illegal data.
But I paid for it all fair and square eh.
I have bills.
Anyone wants to drag me into court, can suck on it.

So no, I haven't reeeeeeeally been talking about piracy. That involves theft obtained by taking something with no money having changed hands.
