Generation Cock

If you think tele is mostly shit, You’re right, however, TV just got a bit less shit.

Currently I am watching HBO’s mini series, Generation Kill, based on a proper book by a guy with a moustache it tells the tale of a platoon of Marines as they invade Iraq at the start of the war. It clearly pulls no punches and tells the story like it is, Showing you the lack of resources the marines have and all the problems they face in today’s modern warfare (aside from getting killed) The dialogue is brilliant, except for the overuse of the word “Dawg” now i am not sure if they say it a lot in America or what, but all i do i know is, its getting on my nerves a bit dawg.

There is drama and comedy aplenty, albeit very dark, coming from the same stable that brought you “The Wire” you’d expect it to be awesome, and you know what? It is! aside from a few obvious budget niggles (the Special effects can be a tad ropey in places) its shaping up to be this seasons MUST WATCH drama about the Iraq war with Marines in it.

The guy who played Beecher in Oz plays the journalist and author who rides along with the Marines as they invade, witnessing everything they see, first hand. This could be his finest role since Waynes World dawg.
