Why arent Miniseries more popular?
>better acting
>high production values
>tighter direction
>more interested on what it is now than what it can do next season
>side plots are tight up much better
>doesnt suffer from time constraints of movies
Yet the only one people know about is Band of Brothers
Speaking of which how does BBC and HBO keep on making them? They always get meh ratings

>capital is such a piece of undeveloped shit that only slaves would work it
>White House is literally just a dingy little claustrophobic house
>everyone is dicking John Adams in the ass
>Jefferson is a piece of shit
>Hamilton is a piece of shit
>just about every city is a diseased shithole
>his son is a failure at life
>his wife is slowly dying an agonizing death
>his other son tries to avenge his father's ruined legacy as president only to fuck up his presidency even harder than his father's
>his only real lasting achievement is good foreign policy

John Adams had a depressing life. Dude was an asshole to everyone, so at least part of it was kind of his fault.

Is this Paul Giamattis only serious role?

Not profitable, even though its probably the objectively greatest form of cinematic storytelling
either
>make a movie that millions of people will watch once and you make money at the box office
>make a tv show that thousands of people will watch for years and you milk the shit out of it until it dies

To be fair, you had to be an asshole to survive that political climate and climb the ladder to the white house. Absolute viciousness abounded.

Miniseries are popular with audiences, when done well, but they don't offer season after season of revenue for studios and networks. That's why they don't get made more often, even though they're really THE choice format for adapting most books to the screen. There's just not much money to be made, and they tend to cost a shitload to produce.

The miniseries is the one thing related to TV/film that I tend to get on my soapbox about. They really need to find a way to produce them AND turn a profit without completely fucking up the format. Anthology series are the closest I've seen to achieving this.

Anthology series are the new miniseries with Fargo, TF and AHS.
American horror story is garbage as fuck though.
