I'm the motherflippin'... can't wait for the second season.


speaking of great hbo products:

generation kill. by the writers of the wire. very impressive indeed.


Niko - I have heard quite a lot of buzz about this. Is it really good? It's an Iraq drama isn't it? I wonder when it'll come here.


yes it is good. for a lack of a better word, it's real. it's not jarhead, three kings, it's the wire (tone of voice, feel, writing) in Iraq. Don't know when Europe will get it, watching it online.

One of the fans they encounter is the inspiration for Mel, the freaky fan in the series...


Generation Kill is excellent. It's based on the book (more accurately a series of Rolling Stone articles) by an embedded journalist who rode in the lead vehicle of the lead element of the lead (you get the picture) and is very faithful to it. Like 'The Wire', the characters and situations are presented 'as is' and it doesn't flinch or judge.
