Summary: Unsurprising attracting awards attention, "The Pacific" is a ten-part series set in the midst of World War II, that follows the actions of three US Marines In the Pacific Theatre Of War. It’s a series not a million miles away from its spiritual predecessor, "Band Of Brothers", which is understandable given the crossover of creative talent.
Yet "The Pacific" is still a show with an identity of its own. It boasts the same sky-high production values of "Band Of Brothers", but it also has a broader canvas, and a slightly slower pace to it. It’s absorbing drama, though, and the standard of it is kept high right throughout the ten-episode run. During that time, it takes in many key events of the time, and presents them with staggering confidence and strength.
All of this, of course, makes you hope that the high definition transfer can do all of this justice. Fortunately, the news here is good. Few television shows have been treated to anywhere near the love that "The Pacific" has been in its 1080p transfer, and matched by surround sound work that’d put many blockbuster movies to shame,
Is it Band Of Brothers 2? Absolutely not. Instead, "The Pacific" is a wonderful drama series in its own right, and one well worth picking up. --"Jon Foster"
