WINTER TV REVIEW: THE PACIFIC

Even though this is a limited-run 10-episode series on HBO, I still felt THE PACIFIC warranted mentioning as a series, mini or not. Hell, at 10 episodes it will have lasted longer than ABC's HANK or Fox's SONS OF TUCSON ever did. So, THE PACIFIC: WOW. What an amazing, gripping, terrifying, exhilerating show. The score is amazing, and the cinematography is A-list all the way. Look for THE PACIFIC to score come Emmy time. I have only seen the first episode, and it is wisely tame compared to what I can only imagine is what to come. This is the kind of series that I think will get more engrossing as time goes on, but still starts out as premium artistic entertainment. A+
