Generation Kill

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

Ain’t It Cool has a quick review of the first two episodes of HBO’s new miniseries, Generation Kill. It’s based on the terrific book by Evan Wright, and produced by Ed Burns and David Simon, the brains behind The Wire, TV’s greatest show, ever. It premieres July 13th. As if all that weren’t enough, the preview below is set to a Black Rebel Motorcycle Club tune. I don’t know if I could ask for much more. I’m stoked.

    I see Ziggy Sobotka from The Wire is playing the same character here.

    Simon and Wright were on NPR last week on the call in show, Talk of the Nation. Good stuff, which you can listen to at the NPR web site.

    Legacy media does legacy entertainment for McCain. Colour me surprised.
