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.

Luther is coming back for series 3.

It has been mentioned already, but I *really* enjoyed SciFi's The Lost Room. It was really good... SciFi's (before they were SyFy) last good mini-series.

Yes, I really liked it too. It was meant as a backdoor pilot, if I recall, but nothing was ever made of it (except arguably Warehouse 13, maybe?).

May have missed if this has already been mentioned but Netflix has Sleeper Cell which is a great double mini series about a terrorist plot.

No such thing exists beyond my occasional FB posts. I still recall the Mauritius trip and (paraphrased) "Oh THERE'S x amoount of them...THESE are the last 2...and they don't like each other".

Something like that.

He didn't say who signed it. I'll sign yours, if you want.

Looking into it further, it looks like I missed the pilot episode, which is numbered 00. Have to go back, I guess. I enjoyed the series. Is it done or will there be a series 2?

Also: note that this series was done by Howard Overman, the guy behind Misfits.
