Storyline

By October 1942, the Marines on Guadalcanal are fighting hunger and the jungle as well as the Japanese. The arrival of an Army unit helps somewhat but the Marines realize just how under-equipped they are by comparison. The Japanese are reinforcing their troops with ease and the men are facing nightly attacks at Henderson Field. Sgt. John Basilone takes charge during a particularly powerful Japanese attack and is recommended for a medal. He loses a close friend however. Back home Eugene Sledge, no longer needing his father's permission to sign up, announces he is going to enlist in the Marines. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Near the start of the first episode, an officer gives a speech to NCOs. Behind the officer is a large map of the world showing those parts in red under German and Japanese control. The map clearly shows Iceland in red with a swastika nearby. Iceland was neutral during the war and was invaded by Britain in May 1940 and later occupied by the USA. Iceland was never under German control. See more »

Nice one, but something is REALLY missing...
25 March 2010 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

I was really waiting for the second episode of "The Pacific". The first one, "Guadalcanal/Leckie" was really good. In this one, we have good cinematography, good job from director, again, good acting. But the problem is that (still) we don't have something, that made "Band of Brothers" unforgettable. I think, the thing that this show doesn't have, is a great characters development. After the second episode, i still don't really care about the characters, i can't even tell their names. This episode has a good moments, but i'm not going to wait for the third episode THAT much.
