Generation Kill?

Who watched it last night? I was stuck at work. How was it?

Nope, didn't see it. Was busy catching up on all the reading material you posted this past week! Just kidding, read the book, made a decision not to watch. Will read reviews, perhaps see it when released on DVD. How's class going? Financial aid all straightened out? Take care!

They'll run it several times before next week I'm sure. I caught a repeat last night. It's kinda funny at times. There is a scene where they are opening mail. They got a lot of letters from school children, but they complain because they haven't gotten anything they really wanted, dip, porn, ect. They show a couple things, sending back Iraqis who have surendered, and not fighting armed but non-uniformed Iraqis that I think were huge mistakes we made coming in. In the end I'm a little weary. There is a somewhat clueless CO who doesn't convey the mission to the troops well, a SGT Major who just yells about grooming standards, a Capt who doesn't really talk to his Lts, and a somewhat benevolent Lt who really seems to understand things and is always looking out for his men. I think they over parody the Marines a bit. I wonder if people will understand that it is parody and not think that all Marines are just porn addictted, blood thirsty killers.
