How does The Pacific compare?   Is it as good?
Not imo. I didn't even get through the entire series.

You always have to disagree with me .

The concentration camp scene was crazy. Films often underdo depictions of the holocaust. I don't think they did here.
Definitely. But I recently watched Night Will Fall, which took it to a whole other level. Read up on it before you decide to watch it though, it's extremely intense and unsettling.

If by very good you mean the best series of all time.
Anyone else have an issue with Ross playing Captain Sobel? I found it hard to take him seriously.

That and Jimmy Fallon's minute of screen time. I kept waiting for Fallon to start giggling uncontrollably, like in just about every SNL skit.

Actors' acting is not on par with Marvels standard. Nevertheless, an enjoyable show.

Not sure why it has such a crazy high rating on IMDb. Perhaps comic book/superhero geeks and nerds getting overly excited?

The IMDb ratings for TV shows are always a little screwy.
