The Pacific: Lots of Gore but I could Tolerate

Oh, darn! First is Night at the Museum, then this!!!??? Just because of some fictional Egyptian pharaoh mummy who learned English from Cambridge whom because of the power of the tablet he became really lifelike whose name is variously spelled and have a big hammy brother who is really jealous of him and had a dark gate which includes dark people and which the said pharaoh only appeared a few times in the movies???

Anyway, I watched some of the episodes of The Pacific because I knew it from reading stuff about Rami Malek, who played Ahkmenrah from Night at the Museum and Marcos Al-Zacar from 24. Oh, and Kenny from War at Home, too.

So I started watching the 5th episode. I knew that according to the storyboard, Malek's character Snafu barfed. Yeah, Snafu was awesome, even when he barfed (well, it's not like the barf was shown anyway). He also smokes and showed himself with no shirt on! I was like "he's so cool" and "he's so bad" at the same time.

Aww man! Why should I have to talk about Snafu if Sledge is one of the main protagonists?

Well, the main thing is that due that The Pacific is about the World War II involving people being shot and bombed and stuff, there's a lot of gore and blood! There's also the part where it takes place during their home: The United States of America. Yeah... that part was kinda boring. I could actually tolerate the gore and curse words. (Even though it's bad, it's just acting, right, so no people were actually harmed.) We should know that they were trying to guard America, right?

The soundtrack is awesome and epic! Even though The Pacific has its own soundtrack, there are some songs which reminds me of the HBO mini-series.

The song below was in my mind when I thought of Snafu (and some other Marines):
