Default Band of Brothers or The Pacific?

I've heard good things about both shows but have never seen an episode of either.

For some reason they both just appeared on the Video on Demand at the same time, and I really want to watch.

I remember seeing threads about both shows, so just wondering, which show should I tackle first?

BoB is an awesome series. Never seen The Pacific... I thought it was a new series coming out.

To answer the question, Band of Brothers for sure. Both are great series, but I connected to the characters better in Band of Brothers. Both are worthy of repeat watches though (and dvd/bluray purchases!) and won all those Emmys for good reason.

John Basilone is my hero. The Pacific is a good series.

I honestly don't think anyone would answer the Pacific. It was great, but BoB was too good.

I tried to get into the Pacific but gave up after 4 or 5 episodes. That sucks that the guy couldn't stop pissing himself, but...

Pacific was more shock and awe, didn't have anything close to the character depth/development that band of brothers had. John Basilone and Snafu were the best things about the pacific.

Band of Brothers is one of the best mini-series/tv series ever, while pacific was just very good.

I agree with what's being said. The Pacific was great but Band of Brothers is just on another level.
