16 of the Best Miniseries for Those With Short Attention Spans
This is one of the best miniseries that isn’t about history, a mystery, or some real event. It’s just the story of a woman and the complicated life she lived. The miniseries begins with an elderly Olive (Frances McDormand) planning to commit suicide while reflecting on the hardships of her life. The four episodes of the miniseries bring viewers through years of Olive’s life, full of strife and tragedy. Shockingly, or perhaps fittingly, Olive doesn’t come across as particularly likable. She’s real and flawed beyond measure. But her true-to-life nature helps create a story that completely absorbs you.
