So I re-watched the “Marcia Marcia Marcia” episode of The People vs O.J. Simpson today after having a little discussion about it on the threads with Aaayan and I must say (and I remember liking it a lot when it aired in 2016) but The People vs OJ Simpson is a masterpiece! Whether its from Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance and Sterling K. Brown’s performances, the careful and subtle direction and the intense writing which I think should be given more credit considering how it managed to keep people hooked when a lot of people knew what the outcome of the trial was going to be.
So I then wondered what are people’s favourite Limited Series? I have only included Limited Series winners on here, Limited Series that were considered to be game changing or groundbreaking and/or did very well at the Emmys. Of course everyone is welcome to their own choices (hence the other button).
I haven’t included things like AHS, Fargo or True Detective in this list but feel free to vote for them by clicking the other button.
Let me know what you all think is the best limited series of all time! I think you all can tell what I voted for.
FYC OSCARS : VANESSA KIRBY FOR "PIECES OF A WOMAN", AMANDA SEYFRIED FOR "MANK", CHADWICK BOSEMAN FOR "MA RAINEY'S BLACK BOTTOM", PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN (BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY).August 23, 2020 at 6:12 pm #1203663446
When They See Us
It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!August 23, 2020 at 6:27 pm #1203663499
1. Angels in America
2. Band of Brothers
John Adams, Chernobyl and From the Earth to the Moon are good, but not masterpieces as these three.August 23, 2020 at 6:36 pm #1203663520
Only haven’t seen John Adams, started 1 episode 18 months and was so incredibly bored.
Of the remaining nine would, I’d rank them as follows:
01. Angels In America
02. Big Ligtle Lies
03. The People vs O.J. Simpson
06. The Assassin of Gianni Versace
07. Olive Kitteridge
08. Band of Brothers
Other miniseries I’d consider as all timers are Roots, Bridesheads Revisited, Pride & Prejudice, The Night Off & When They See Us. From the anthologies, Fargo S2, True Detective S1 & AHS (Asylum & Cult) are the only ones I’d consider to be in the same league.
Given how much effort has gone into the miniseries as type of filmmaking post-AHS, all of our opinions could be completely different in 10 years time.August 23, 2020 at 6:48 pm #1203663549

If we end up in an accidental situation as a result of the situations that have led to barren fields in the Comedy categories we may just end up with the Limited categories and a merged Drama and Comedy category LMAO.

The People vs. OJ Simpson gets my vote. Completely captivating, beautifully acted and Ryan Murphy’s best work by far.

Angels in America. Simply one of the best television series of all time.August 23, 2020 at 9:31 pm #1203663748
Olive Kitteridge > The People v. O.J. Simpson > Watchmen > Big Little Lies > Chernobyl > The Assassination of Gianni VersaceAugust 23, 2020 at 9:36 pm #1203663760
Olive Kitteridge > The People v. O.J. Simpson > Watchmen > Big Little Lies > Chernobyl > The Assassination of Gianni Versace
I now really need to see Olive Kitteridge!
Just out of interest do you have Chernobyl lower than Big Little Lies because you thought it was a bit meh or because this list is too competitive and you liked BLL more?

From these choices, it’s “Angels in America,” and then everything else.August 23, 2020 at 9:37 pm #1203663765
Obviously Chernobyl, but Bangkok Hilton (1989) – Nicole Kidman, Denholm Elliott, Hugo Weaving, Noah Taylor et al was major in Australia. Certainly the best Australian miniseries of all time.August 23, 2020 at 11:29 pm #1203663873
The Decalogue, by Krzysztof Kieślowski.August 23, 2020 at 11:38 pm #1203663888
If we’re including anthologies then the answer for me is actually probably American Horror Story: Roanoke as I have never been so riveted week in week out by any contained story before.
If we aren’t then for me it has to be A Very English Scandal for daring to be boldly unique and comic with a story that could have very easily been told as a straight forward biopic.
