    I'm looking for some good miniseries to help me through nights of total insomnia. Movies are too short, but long series with several seasons are too long. What can you recommend?

    Did you ever see Pillars of the Earth? It was really good.

    Actually watched it this weekend. I love the books. Have not watched World Without End yet, but it's in the queue. :up:

    Band of Brothers and The Pacific are great miniseries. The other night I couldn't sleep and ended up watching all eight episodes of Hunted.

    Pillars was decent. WWE will drive you nuts if you love the books. I couldn't watch it all.

    I've recently become a fan of American Horror Story. There have been 2 seasons but they do not tie into each other at all. In fact, I watched Season two before season one. There are some actors/actresses that are in both seasons.

    Season one is about a haunted house whereas season two is about an asylum.

    While you must be joking about it being a miniseries I would go with "The Corner" by the same dudes. Sort of a miniseries about a family that would be prominent in "The Wire".

    They just re-ran "The Corner" over the weekend and I watched a few episodes. Great series and I was surprised to recognize three main actors who also were in "The Wire" in very different roles. :up:
