Well, I’m sitting in my office with chills down my spine listening and watching both Soundtracks. Love them both, simply amazing pieces of music. I thought I would take the time to put both of them on one post for you to enjoy and perhaps compare.

Which do you prefer? It’s a hard choice, they are both beautiful in my eyes but I’d have to say Band Of Brothers wins for me. Just can’t beat it!  Roll on the next episode……..

Don’t forget to check out my page on “The Pacific” download links and guide if you haven’t already here.

The Problem With “The Pacific ” – “Band Of Brothers Syndrome”

Hello All! I can see a lot of you have been finding my links and guide to downloading “The Pacific” series helpful (here), so glad I can be of service to you all. Don’t forget new episodes will be online every Monday. I just wanted to share my thoughts / impressions from watching the first episode of The Pacific series.

First of all, I thought it was excellent. The trouble is I have self diagnosed myself with what I like to now call “Band Of Brothers Syndrome “. (BOBS for short). For almost half an hour or more, I was continually thinking about Band Of Brothers and even comparing it to The Pacific series. This is for obvious reasons:

The presentation is identical – The white text and red lines at the start are the same in both series

The real life interviews – Both series have these at the beginning.

The Introduction theme – Similar style with slow music, grainy film and black and white effects.

Like I said, I LOVED it so don’t get me wrong  – I’m a huge fan of the series and have been eagerly waiting for years to watch it. I just think the fact that people can’t help comparing it to BoB almost ruins it a little, as it rightfully shouldn’t be compared. The producers have labelled it as “an accompanying piece to Band Of Brothers” , so it is clearly meant to remind us of it.

If you go on any message boards or facebook pages, comments from torrent sites (not that I even download torrents!:P ) a lot of the people seem to have my problem as well. I think it is hard to enjoy a new series or get connected to new characters, when less than ten minutes into the first episode your thinking to yourself – “this will be a slow episode like BoB was for the first one” or “Cpt Winters wouldn’t of done that!”. On more than one occasion I found myself looking closely at my TV screen thinking I’m SURE I’ve seen him before, was he in BoB? He looks a bit like Winters! etc etc etc

So in closing, I still look forward to the rest of the series and I’m a huge fan. It will just take me and a lot of others time to stop comparing it to Band Of Brothers.

The most important question of course is “Do you have Band Of Brothers Syndrome as well?”
