    John Adams would be a good example I guess. Or the Pillars of the Earth adaptation.

    I usually consider 'series' a multiple season event with a beginning middle and end to a particular set of events, only for the same characters etc to take on new evens the next go around all while having to deal with the consequences of the previous seasons.

    A miniseries is more of a longer movie to me.

    On a different note, I hear they are doing a Season 2 of the new Vikings show on History Channel. Glad thats one going to get more story-telling time.

    •  Agreed.. And Pillars of the Earth (1+ / 0-)

      Was a great miniseries.   Really worthwhile.

      •  I think they did justice to the book (0+ / 0-)

        for sure. I am just finishing up World Without End, and while it has its moments it feels a little rushed or something at times. I realize there is a lot of ground to cover but there is not a lot of time to come to know the characters.
