I caught the first installment of the new HBO miniseries, Generation Kill the other night and have to say, it is a good watch. Based on the first episode, I will be watching the entire seven-part series.

While the show suffers from the fact that all the soldiers tend to look identical, it is definitely realistic in that respect – isn’t that the point of the uniforms and short haircuts in the first place?

The fact that it is based on real events makes me a little more forgiving of plot and even dialogue. At the end of the day whether you view it as a sensationalized documentary or just a drama, the situations are enjoyable to watch.

I still prefer Over There, despite some people feeling it came out way too soon in the conflict, but hey – its still early in the series.
