HBO’s The Pacific, Episode 8

Dear Hanks and Spielberg,

You know all those great scenes with the Women Marines in Episode 8?

There’s your story.



In all honesty, I thought Episode 8 was one of the best of the entire miniseries. And you know that’s saying something, coming from me.

This episode worked in so many ways that past episodes haven’t. I thought the interactions between Basilone and his wife were some of the best engagement between characters that we’ve seen. She provided much-needed grounding to this entire war, even some contextualization.
