Generation Kill is an awesome show. It’s four episodes in on HBO Sundays. From The Wire boys, the show features razor sharp dialogue, beautiful cinematography, and great acting. Here’s the nutshell:
Written by Evan Wright for Rolling Stone magazine (this is not just based on a true story, it basically is the true story) it’s follows the soldiers of Bravo company during the initial invasion of Iraq. It paints an incredibly human story– at times it seems anti-war, at other times pro-war, but always high on the incompetence and bureaucracy of organizations. And, did I mention the dialogue is sick? Oh, and the reason I’m posting this is because every time I rave about the show to someone they’ve never heard of it. This is crazy. Watch it and tell everyone!
