Well, you know what I thought about installment #1. I literally dozed off after about 40 minutes.
That sucks cause thats about when they got done with the intro and things got REALLY good. It could have stood to be a little less artistic but I appreciated the lack of "talking head" pundants giving the same canned responses other documentarys haveWell, you know what I thought about installment #1.

For me, it was a pace so slow that it was a bore. The "scan and pan" of pictures accompanied by cello and piano worked great for The Civil War, but just doesn't seem to work on this topic.Doent understand what some of you were looking for, movie style fighting footage? "experts" praising Mosins as the best rifles ever? or....?
I thought this was very interesting, PERSONAL stories/accounts from those that were there. Their stories, nothing more. It was like sitting across the table from them listening.
Oh, I agree that the personal accounts are generally great. They were there, many of us here were not even on this earth. Just the slow pace and the cello (I do like cello, BTW) does not make it very dynamic.I really enjoyed the personal accounts, and some of the footage used was stuff I had not seen before. The narrator is what almost killed me...that guy came real close to putting me to sleep. I am hoping it gets better.
Well, yeah, I agree the pace was slow at(most) times. I was doing other things with just listening to the program, didn't even notice one of the narrators was Tom Hanks. Like I said though, it was like sitting across the table from them, picking up on their emotions and feelings, it was good.Oh, I agree that the personal accounts are generally great.

KB certainly does not like "DMac" (Dug-Out Doug) or the Japanese very much.
I thought that was funny too."obsolete bolt action single shot rifles designed in 1903" according to the film.
There all "single shot" if the criteria is how many bullets come out the barrell at the same time. !!!!I thought that was funny too.
I turned to my daughter and said "thats less obsolete then the obsolete rifles the others used, designed in 1891, 1898, 1895, ..."
I just let the "single shot" comment slide.
