As I survey the state of television circa 2011, I have this question…
Where did the mini-series go?
There was a time when network television, usually during sweeps, would set aside a whole week and broadcast epic tales. There was Roots, V, The Thorn Birds, and War and Remembrance just to name a few.
They had big stars, sweeping stories, and huge budgets.
Now they’re all gone.
Now I sit and watch and guess whether Amy and Luke from Bellingham, Washington, will pick house #1, #2, or #3.
