I just discovered this TV serie, from HBO(The Wire, Oz, Rome, Deadwood) and this is HUGE!
this is a mini=serie, and spanned 7 episodes.
It's about the Iraq War's first phase(2003), we follow the 2nd platoon of the battalion's Bravo Company, with an embedded reporter, from Rolling Stone Magazine. The cast is large.
David Simon and Ed Burns, these are the same guys who made The Wire.
I think this is probably the best tv show I've ever seen, and this is why i really like television, because sometimes, there's a masterpiece like that.
