    Default Your Favorite Miniseries

    I like miniseries. They're usually well-made, and you don't feel too bad for binge-watching them, because they're not as long as a full season of a TV show. Best of all, they have endings. I hate getting invested in a TV show, and then finding out that it's been canceled. No closure = angry octopus.

    So what are your favorite TV miniseries? Which ones do you like to recommend?

    They still do mini-series on TV? I remember going crazy back in the day when they did the Stephen King ones, like The Stand and It. I wonder if they still hold up.

    With the short seasons favored by the British, HBO and their imitators, it is easy to pound out a season quickly, almost like a miniseries.

    As compared to 90s era shows where the seasons are 28 weeks of uneven episodes.... Much better today with 8 hours of a Breaking Bad type show per season.

    So, not quite miniseries, but....

    As to pure miniseries, I put the BBC Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy as my all time favorite. I think my wife and I have watched it 5 or so times.
