The Only Reason I Might Add HBO for a While

I've had HBO and other cable pay channels off and on over the years but several years ago came to the realization that it was mostly a waste - especially since I had my own movie jukebox via HTPC.  I do have a few series that made me want to pay the ridiculous money for pay-tv including "The Sopranos" and my personal favorite Pay TV series of all time, "Band of Brothers."  I just learned of a new reason HBO might pry a little more cash from me so read on for the reason.

Follow-up to "Band of Brothers": "The Pacific"

Next year HBO will be bringing a TV series called "The Pacific", the follow-up to "Band of Brothers" by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.  I'm a big fan of history-related flicks and series and I'm very interested in this one.  Check out the trailer that was just released for "The Pacific" and see what you think.


The series has a huge budget and looks to be along the same vein as "Band of Brothers."  If it comes even close it will be a good one.  So come 2010, I might just bite the bullet and add HBO one more time.
