Pacific seems like it's in such a hurry. It's in a dead out sprint to reach a point somewhere that it's just completely out of whack. I don't know any of the characters. I know the one guy....And he's really not that interesting, even though they try to give him depth, and sadly fail.
I'd still buy the series if only to show people the technical aspects of setting up a water cooled .30 cal Machinegun.....That was really fantastic how they did that. Other than that? We've got a reasonably good '50s WWII movie.
