Over There (show about Iraq war)

Postby Iguana » Sun Jul 17, 2005 5:52 pm

Anyone here read Entertainment Weekly? In the new issue I got on Friday, there was a big article about this show coming out called Over There about the war in Iraq, and they had a CD-Rom in the magazine with the first 20 minutes of the pilot episode. I just watched it earlier today and it was very cool. Looks like it's going to be a really intense show. I had seen the ads for it during Rescue Me, but now I'm even more intrigued.....Anyone else heard of this show?

I definitely plan on checking it out, it looks like a modern-day Band of Brothers almost. I think it's by the same people who did The Shield, which is another awesome show.

Agree that The Shield is awesome! ;-D

Not sure about this show though. I've seen the commercials, but I'm just not interested. :-?

Well it's actors, but it's based on the real ordeal and suffering our troops in Iraq go through. They had a DVD in last weeks Entertainment Weekly that had a long clip of the first episode. It looks like a really cool show...lot's of battle scenes, but it should be powerful.

I don't really think its right for something like this to come out in the midst of the war going on. What I mean is, how many Vietnam movies were being made during the Vietnam War? How about WWII movies during WWII? I personally think they ought to wait several years like other films have done.

Just my opinion.

Maybe. Hadn't really thought about it under those terms. I don't really see it as a huge problem though, and it looks like a good show. I'll probably tune in and see what its all about.
