Lightbulb Full Metal Alchemist - Brotherhood

Has anyone else been watching the new FMA series on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim? Episode 2 was aired last night. I don't want to make judgements on just two episodes -- I know better than that now. But one thing that the new series has going for it is that it seems to go into more detail on certain aspects of the story, such as Ed's recruitment into the military.

Basically, the new series is a retelling of the original, except it is supposed to follow the manga more faithfully. It is a bit more graphic than what I remember the original series to be. But I haven't been rewatching the original. The original was good, but not great. I really did not see the need to watch it again. I will continue to watch FMA-Brotherhood for now, however. I will watch it at least through the first six episodes.

Any other opinions?

So far it is just a rehash of the original FMA. The stories are told in a slightly different chronological order, but I still get the feeling I am watching a re-run. Those who have never seen the original would probably get more into FMA:B than I am. It is a well done series, but so far I am not getting anything new from it.

I do understand that later on the story takes a different direction than the original. This version, as mentioned above, is more faithful to the magna. But I am not sure if I am going to stay around long enough to find out.
