Day 17: Favorite Miniseries

This is actually the first one where I can't decide, so two very dramatically different miniseries for you:

Band of Brothers. This one was just amazing. I'm not sure what else to say about it, but I love seeing the bonds forged between the company, and the amazing dedication and sacrifice of these men (I'd say and women, but the female contribution is not focused on in this series, for the most part).

And then, on the total opposite end of the scale...

Alice, from the Sci-Fi network. I was shocked at this one- it was actually really, really good. And Alice- a black belt, butt kicking girl who goes off to save her boyfriend- was a really interesting heroine. And I loved Hatter, who stole the show. But this was a fascinating look at Alice in Wonderland, twisted into a very different way and not remotely canon, but I'm glad it wasn't. A bit steampunk, a bit trippy (okay, a lot trippy), and overall SO much better than Riverworld.

Day 18: Favorite Title Sequence

I absolutely love the title sequence from The Pacific. The music is gorgeous, and I love charcoal drawings, and then those drawings coming to life... it's gorgeous. Definitely the best title sequence I've seen in years.

Although, let's be honest- the 80s had some of the BEST TITLE SONGS EVER. Greatest American Hero, St. Elmo's Fire, The Dukes of Hazzard, M*A*S*H, and even the A-Team all had incredibly memorable songs. (I just found the A-Team intro here. I have not watched it since I was a child, and now find the sight of a Cylon walking by Mr. Girls-have-cooties Dirk Benedict really entertaining.) But I'll keep The Pacific as my choice for the title.

Almost done the Kara-Felix story. Whoohoo! And we're hitting the creek today, which should be fun.

Have a good one!
