As far as thread title goes, how about Welcome to the Suck? Or is that too negative?

I don't suppose that existence of this forum is related to any increased chances of getting the missing The Wire recaps, is it?
It was only a few hours ago that I remembered that Simon had compared many of the characters in The Wire to Paths of Glory. I guess that this miniseries allows him to get one step closer.

Anyway, hello to all. I'm looking forward to this.

Anyway, it's good to see a couple of familiar faces from The Wire forum. I'm psyched for this. The NPR reviewer saw the first five episodes and liked it. He said it was a bit hard to tell the characters apart because everyone was in camo fatigues and wearing helmets. That's okay. I think we'll manage. Simon and Burns don't write interchangeable characters.

"Area of Operations" works for me, too.

Personally I think it's well done (haven't read the book) but very hard to follow (and I watched all 5 years of The Wire).

I dreamt I was in Iraq, and I wasn't naked. It was actually a nightmare, with these recon guys in ghillie suits stalking me. I screamed myself awake like a little girl.

In all seriousness... if my pantywaist self is having nightmares, I feel triply bad for soldiers who have PTSD.

I started seeing war movies and television in a different light, and became more open-minded and empathetic about the life of a combat soldier. Even hamsterless loose cannons like Captain America.
Speaking of, anyone remember the actor (Eric Nenninger) from that homoerotic classic, "Jeepers Creepers II"? Hee. I was excited to see someone I actually knew in a cast of (for me) newbies!
Oh, Brad "Ice Man" Colbert is my new television husband. My boyfriend, friends, and family have been duly warned.
