Best TV Miniseries of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Band of Brothers

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

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.

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.

5 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.

7 John Adams John Adams John Quincy Adams was an American statesman who served as the sixth President of the United States from 1825 to 1829. He also served as a diplomat, a Senator and member of the House of Representatives.
8 From the Earth to the Moon
9 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.

10 The Thorn Birds

The Newcomers

? Big Little Lies

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

? Night Manager

The Contenders

11 The Lost Room
12 The Winds of War

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

13 The Pacific

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

14 Shogun
15 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.

16 Shaka Zulu
17 Generation Kill

How the hell is this 14?

18 Over The Garden Wall Over The Garden Wall

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

19 Jane Eyre
20 Jekyll
