You sound like a do it you yourself-man.

I have always wanted to turn my desktop PC into HTPC. Haven´t found any good case yet. Silverstone got some nice looking cases though.

OK, i watched first three episodes.
Not bad, but if they continue this after season one that will make baby jesus cry (IMO Over There was much better).

It's not a series, but rather a 7-part mini-series based on the Evan Wright (the embedded rolling stone reporter in the show) book "Generation Kill"...just like Band of Brothers...so you don't have to worry about a second season.

I was reading up on this, and I find it interesting...and expected...that the people who come off looking bad in the book and mini-series (Captain American, Gunny,etc)all say it is work of fiction, and things weren't really like that....and on the other hand, the people who come off looking good in the book and mini-series (Lt Fick, Sgt Colter, etc) all say it is highly accurate. One of the real life marines...now discharged...even plays himself in the show

I've been watching it and so far have enjoyed it.
It has been kinda boring but I pretty much figure thats whats war is about,"Hurry up and wait" then work like hell.

I know nothing about the team or there RL actions so have no idea of the outcome.
Cpt.America is however funny,especially when they took the airstrip.

I do hope the last 3 episodes are better however.Ofcourse I have Tivo so I watch it when I want.

In an interview, one of the real life marines in the unit portrayed, said that it was just like what is shown in the mini-series for his unit. He said that 95% off his tour was spent driving around in HMMWVs being bored and feeling like they were not even part of the invasion.

Hopefully noone thought I think this suck. It doesn´t.
I was just hoping that they had make deep characters that we could maybe identify or feel sympathy (maybe someone got what I mentioned, my engrish sucks). Thats the power of a series that we remember it after 10 years.

last 2 episodes really redeemed the series for me. There's actually action in them (though most of it is watching Iraqis get slaughtered), and it has shown the mistakes made about the war later on. The best part by far is the one captain that freaks out about everything, especially when they are under attack (He screams about them all dying on the radio). Hopefully the series will end up nicely.
