I liked the Weeds as well, but as soon as I saw Dexter (the show on afterwords) I was totally hooked...

One of the best shows I've seen in a long time... The only thing that worries me is that I'm not sure if the second season will be able to hold a candle to last years... I guess I shall see.

I always thought a mini series was something that only has one season. finishes in that one season. And usually has a small amount of episodes.

But if you are including Weeds, which is a great show. I will add The Wire, Rome, and trailer park boys

Yea I've always thought of mini-series like a movie chopped up into 3-4 episodes.

I love Weeds though and there's nothing better than Trailer Park Boys.

Haven't seen Weeds, but Splinter Cell is a good one. Not sure if it's still a mini-series if they do it a 2nd one.

Band of brothers was definately the best min-series, and one of the best things period, I've ever seen.

Dexter os an actual TV series, not a mini-series. I love the show too, but that would be a whole different thread to me.

I’m in the process of watching band of brothers now. I’ve finished the first 3 segments. It’s really good so far.
