16 of the Best Miniseries for Those With Short Attention Spans
Band of Brothers
There will never be a war miniseries quite like Band of Brothers. The ten-episode saga tells the story of the “Easy Company,” a part of the United States Army’s 101st Airborne Division during WWII. While the events are dramatized (it’s a TV show, after all!), many of the things that happen are based on real events and the brothers in arms are all based on real people. In many episodes, there are modern-day interviews with the real Easy Company men who are being portrayed on-screen. The care taken in preserving historical accuracy while still making a war epic entertaining make this one of the best miniseries of all time. This series makes sitting through 10+ hours of WWII history feel like nothing! Blending history and entertainment is hard, but no miniseries gets it right better than Band of Brothers.
