Default The World Wars

Anybody else watching this mini series on the History channel? It's three parts, starting tonight and ending Wednesday.

I've found it very interesting and compelling. Lots of stuff in here I never knew before watching this. Jeremy Renner is narrating and does a great job.

Amazing. I really wish History would get back to doin this stuff instead of crap like mountain men and pawn stars. Those shows are entertaining but not what this channel should be about! Its freaking memorial day and they did a whole day of pawn stars.

Anyways, this series is awesome so far, and I also cant wait for that D-Day doc. on June-6

I saw the preview for D-Day and thought the same thing. Actual footage and interviews with those who lived it sounds absolutely amazing.

I think this series has been awesome as well.

I saw the preview, it looked fantastic, although I missed it. Hopefully they show it again.

Thanks for the heads up! I will make sure I at least record it this time if I can't view it when it comes on.

With the ratings they get off pawn stars it will almost never be canceled

Without pawn stars we wouldn't hear, "my expert says its worth $100,000 but I can offer $125. Its going to sit on the shelf for a long time."

Caught a bit of the airing last night and need to DVR the rest of it. I also need to DVR the D-Day special as that looks good too. It's refreshing to finally have some shows that you can learn something from..

I recorded all three nights but didn't get to watch last night. How is it being presented? Is it like Band of Brothers or is it different dramatizations mixed in with actual footage and narration?

I have been very pleased with it so far. I enjoy when history is told from all points of view, not just singular.

I thought it was ok. The actors I didn't think looked much like their true counterparts, but that's pretty irrelevant to the story.

I will watch the other episodes because I am well documented history nerd.

I agree with others that the History Channel needs to stop with Pawn Stars and actually show history...

It is about history, just a twist on it. Every item is a part of history on that show. I agree though I liked the old way the history channel was. Wish they would bring back this show.



Don't know if the host quit to do the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, or it was cancelled, but it was one of my favorite shows when it was on.

Agreed although the Wal-Mart society is what drives advertisement and in turn decides programming. This is a great series regardless.
