Best TV Miniseries of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Band of Brothers

Made me cry.Philip 70 years

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. - lolabannana89

Best Miniseries in the Earth so Far I like The Pacific but I like this most, Steven Spielberg never let you down

2 Lonesome Dove

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

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.

Evolution never ends, respect must evolve.

4 North and South

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.

5 From the Earth to the Moon
6 Rose Red
7 The Pacific

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks have produced the best miniseries ever. Band of Brothers and The Pacific are the best! - everton96

11 Jesus of Nazareth

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.

12 The Thorn Birds
13 The Bronx is Burning
14 The Winds of War

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

15 The Lost Room
16 I, Claudius

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.

17 A.D. The Bible Continues

This Miniseries should be a All Time 1st place hit of all time.
Nothing is better than leaning about the word of God.

How the hell is this 14?

20 Rich Man, Poor Man
21 Shaka Zulu
22 Big Little Lies

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

23 Over The Garden Wall 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.
