"The Pacific" (HBO) Sunday, March 14
Last time Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks got together on an HBO World War II miniseries, the result was "Band of Brothers," an Emmy-winning smash. This time, the result is the 10-part "The Pacific" focusing on the lives of three Marines (James Badge Dale, Joe Mazzello and Jon Seda) fighting their way across the vast canvass of the Pacific Front. Expect plenty of blood, guts and heroism, while reliving the events of Guadacanal, Iwo Jima, Okinawa and the other steps on the way to VJ-Day.
