Why didn’t you like Pacific?
Why didn’t you like Pacific on HBO?
Well, The Pacific is clearly an excellent work and it’s not that I didn’t like it. It just didn’t get me hooked after the first two episodes. Two things: 1) The structure didn’t work for me and 2) I had just read/seen something on the Battle at Alligator Creek at Guadalcanal, and the depiction of that battle on The Pacific didn’t exceed my expectations. If I were a professional critic with the obligation to review every major release for my public, then I would have given it more of a chance. I wish I had a more satisfying answer, but there it is. I’m glad you enjoyed and admired The Pacific so much.

Didn’t I see it with you?
