One of the best books I ever read, and with the Wire guys on board, the miniseries should be good as well.

I watched it. IT was a little slow but they are building the story. I am going to re-watch it tonight during dinner. I was actually a little lost at times.

If you have HBO on-demand they have a whole bunch of videos on each charactor.

It sort of reminded me of the buildup to the fighting in Band of Brothers. Yeah, it was somewhat slow, but I think the show looks promising.

How do you forget to watch something but remembered to record it?

I set up a schedule to record the whole series about a week ago

I finally watched the first episode on demand and was very impressed. I think the show really captures the way these different personalities came together as a unit. The one thing that the book has, and I'm hoping the show goes into this more in later episodes, is the detailed back stories of the various characters. That's what I remembered the most from the book: the way characters from all walks of life were able to unite and thrive as a military unit and a fraternity.

they, uh, really make those officers (the two captains) look like real A-holes...

it's much more accurate than over there. first episode was pretty good.

The Godfather looks and sounds like a badass.
