Generation Kill is a 7-part dramatic series from Ed Burns and David Simon, the creators of 'The Wire'.  And, like 'The Wire', it is a gritty, no-holds barred portrayal of real life.  Instead of drugs, the series focuses on the gut-wrenching Iraq war.

QUALITY:
Amazing.  The picture is crystal clear.  The sound; completely lossless.

BONUS FEATURES:
Commentaries, video diaries, interview.

The bonus features are a bit lacking for what is otherwise an amazingly well-crafted set.  The show is a brutal watch and certainly not for those that feel that war is what you see in Hollywood everyday.  The biggest thing this set has going aside from the brilliant packaging and sturdy design is the ridiculously clear picture and earth-shattering sound.  As I said, not for the timid, and I mean for those squeemish about war and those that can't quite handle true HD yet.
