Hunnid bux sounds pretty good for both on Blu-Ray plus it's the collector's box with some exclusive stuff. I only have Band of Brothers on Blu-Ray (haven't seen The Pacific at all still, actually) and I'd bet it'd still get me ten bucks or so in store credit at my local record store, so I wouldn't mind dropping this much on them. But I still am sans television and BLOORAY player so I'd feel kind of silly buying something to further delay my ability to play that something. Seems like this is a price that might not be this low again for a while, though.

Dunno if that's a good price; thought it was just the two packaged together, unaware of new features and stuff. :o

I paid $37.49 for my Band of Brothers set and $38.99 for The Pacific (which kicks ass and the quality's just as great as on BOB).

DUNNO WHAT TO TELL YOU, BRO

but I'm satisfied with my Bloo-ray tins and the prices I paid for 'em.

yeahhhhhh...I remember when both were as low as I think $33.99 or so, and wanted to grabz em up so bad, and that was right around the time The Pacific first came out, close to around a year ago or so I think. Obviously, if I had grabbed them then, I still wouldn't have watched them by now lol.

I'm sure I'll probably end up passing on them again.

I still need to watch the rest of The Pacific. I think I got through the first 4 or 5 episodes but then fell out of it.

Bought Band of Brothers on DVD from Costco a couple years ago, but haven't gotten around to watching it. I did watch it way back when it aired, but it seems like that was a long time ago.

Also read the book Citizen Soldier, but I can't remember if that was the follow-up to BoB or D-Day

Wow.

If my dad didn't already own both, I'd drop that on him and be the best fucking son ever to have lived.

Holy shit, Band of Brothers is so fucking good. Might have to start rewatching that tomorrow or something. Seems I watch it every year around this time.

I think I've watch the whole thing five times through, but I've never watched it without surround sound, and I don't have those capabilities right now, and probably won't for a long time. It just doesn't seem right. Kinda how I feel about a lot of shows and movies, actually. I was spoiled for too long that it's too hard to go back, so I'd rather just not watch anything. Retarded, I know.

Ended up getting the combo set when it was ~$50 at the WB shop.

I found The Pacific to be vastly inferior to Band of Brothers. Band of Brothers had the bar set so incredibly though, of course, which means The Pacific was still pretty decent overall, but definitely pales in comparison to Band of Brothers. Might like it more with additional viewings, but I'm not all that motivated to watch it again.

I haven't watched The Pacific twice yet but my friend and I really have a hankering. We didn't like it nearly as much as BOB, but it's really good on its own. What's dumb though is there's no "play all" option for the episodes with introductory timeline/history narration and WWII footage. That stuff sets up the episodes so much better than watching them straight, much like the interviews with soldiers in BOB. But having to play each episode individually to see them is super ghey like whey.
