Best TV Miniseries of All Time

The Top Ten

1 Band of Brothers Band of Brothers Product Image

This was the first miniseries I've ever seen from Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks together and I almost wanted to shrug it off but I took a chance and bought the DVD set and wouldn't you know it I cried like a baby. I felt with them. I loved with them. I cried with them. As a soldier in the US Army my respect grew even more for these guys and the sacrifices they made not only for their country but for the guy in the foxhole next to theirs. I encourage everyone to watch this and also the Pacific which is another miniseries Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks did.

One of The Best Mini series of ALL Times, I highly recommend this!

The most captivating series ever. I have locked myself in, unplugged or turned off my phone and watched it start to finish many times. Read the book in a similar fashion.

This timeless classic should be Number 1. What a wonderful story and an amazing cast. I have to watch it at least once a year, meaning I've seen the movie about 30 times.

Great series. The acting was incredible. I loved every minute of it.

All the others can suck it!

3 Roots Roots Product Image

This was the first big miniseries I remember. I was "blown away" every night. I bought the series and keep watching. It is one of the most moving T.V. experiences I have ever had.

Greatest movies ever. It educated a nation of its untold history.

Evolution never ends, respect must evolve.

4 Gettysburg Gettysburg Product Image

Very Well Acted. The only complaint I had was that TNT and Ted Turner never completed the Trilogy, with this being the 2nd part, and Gods and Generals being The 1st part.

5 The Pacific

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have produced the best miniseries ever. Band of Brothers and The Pacific are the best!

6 North and South North and South Product Image

Epic saga with theme music that will make you weep! The acting is excellent, and there are few, if any boring scenes during the show's run.

Loved this series. Very well acted, many big stars in it.

10 Jesus of Nazareth Jesus of Nazareth Product Image

The greatest ministries of all time. No body does better than Robert Powell on the part of our Lord.

Beautifully done. The acting, the music, everything about it was wonderful.

The Contenders

11 A.D. The Bible Continues

This Miniseries should be a All Time 1st place hit of all time.

13 The Winds of War The Winds of War Product Image

In terms of the scope, the history, and the massive production effort, "The Winds of War" is unsurpassed!...

14 Texas
15 I, Claudius I, Claudius Product Image

Incredibly and brilliantly acted, historically factual, dramatically portrayed. To bad Hollywood didn't make series like this one!

My favorite. The sets and costumes are simple, but the story is incredible and the acting was so powerful. I loved it.

16 Generation Kill

20 John Adams John Adams was born on October 30, 1735 in Quincy, Massachusetts, United States. Adams served as the president of the United States from March 4, 1797 to March 4, 1801. He died on July 4, 1826 at the age of 90.

As A History Buff, I love anything, especially about The Founding Fathers.

21 The Lost Room
22 Rich Man, Poor Man
23 Over The Garden Wall Over the Garden Wall is an American animated television miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network.

Probably the best miniseries and T.V. show ever. Over the Garden Wall has the best folk music and art in it.

24 Big Little Lies

Very clever dialogue with fantastic cast and plausible plot. Leaves viewer hanging on edge right to exciting conclusion.

25 IT

I like the cinematic remake a lot better.
