But it's not for the squeamish as there are some scenes of war deaths from gun and explosion that are graphic which gives the episodes realism.
The realism continues with the story lines of the wives, husbands, mothers and fathers of the combatants adjusting to the loneliness of life without them--- unfaithfulness, temptations, alcoholism and being over-burdened with coping with the children left behind to name just a few problems experienced by many in every war for centuries.
The acting is solid as you would expect from these performers. No star names but many have left their mark in the many tv series that they have worked in over the years.
Rami Malek was outstanding in 'The Pacific' as 'Snafu' as well as having an unforgettable but brief role in '24'. And currently he is the star of the series 'Mr Robot'. Lets not forget the Oscar for 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.
Omid Abtahi also had a brief role in '24'.
Sprague Grayden played a Presidents daughter in '24' for several episodes.
Perhaps the most outstanding character in the series is Sergeant 'Scream' played by Erik Palladino, a veteran of many outstanding tv series and films.
I found the single series outstanding and am wondering whether to buy 'Generation Kill' as a follow up watch.
Lastly the camera shakes and is quick to move on, so this makes it physically wearing on the eye to actually watch...I have to watch it from a long distance away (the other end of my living room) and sometimes put my hand in front of my eyes till this sort of camerawork has finished.
Eric Palladino is the standout character for me so if you like him, its worth getting for that reason. I imagine if you have watched Generation Kill and A Band of Brothers, then this wont ever make it onto your radar and that would be about right
Includes an ok extra about the making of the last episode.
I'll probably keep for a possible re-watch but its not up to the standard (or budget) of Band of Brothers
