    Really? Then I guess that means that CanIstreamit is not very reliable as it says it is not available. I'm not a Netflix guy so can't check.

    "Hatfields & McCoys" is worth a watch. It's a little too late to mention, but History Channel had another showing today.

    In order of how good they were.
    Roots (even though it was based on a lie it was great television)
    From the Earth to the Moon
    Band of Brothers

    I almost forgot, the mini-series that started them all.

    Thanks for the heads up on The Hunted.
    I started it this morning and I'm already addicted.

    How about a "micro series"? 2003's Clone Wars!

    some from the UK that I love are Zen, Luther, and Sherlock.

    While Luther and Sherlock are not really considered mini-series, they are relatively short with only 6 or 8 episodes a season for Luther and 3 episodes a season for Sherlock.

    I don't know yet how good it is, although it is getting high marks, but there is a new 7-episode miniseries coming right up (within Tivo guide data currently) on Sundance. It stars Elizabeth Moss (Peggy from Mad Men) and Holly Hunter. How bad could that be? :)

    'Top of the Lake'

    ETA - first two eps March 18

    Rome (HBO) is probably my favorite of all time. I think it's technically a series, but it has a miniseries feel to me.

    Dirk Gently was good.
    Sea of Souls was also good.
