HBO’s new mini-series about the war in Iraq, “Generation Kill,” is a fact-based drama that speaks for itself rather than looking for sympathetic characters or airing a political point of view, Entertainment Weekly says. Created by the team of David Simon and Ed Burns, who also brought us “The Wire,” the program is based on a book by Rolling Stone correspondent Evan Wright, and is jammed with precise details that tell the tale of “young men thrown into circumstances way beyond their control,” the magazine says. The New York Times Magazine takes a closer look at Burns, a former Baltimore cop.
