16 of the Best Miniseries for Those With Short Attention Spans
Angels in America
This miniseries boasts one of the most star-studded casts of any miniseries ever. Meryl Streep, Al Pacino, Patrick Wilson, and Emma Thompson all star in this story about the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. A gay man living with the disease is visited by an angel and becomes a prophet amid rising political tensions, the changing landscape of the country, and the spread of one of the most deadly diseases in history. So, not altogether a happy tale. But, the complex story is regarded as one of the best miniseries of all time and swept its categories at the Golden Globes and the Emmy Awards of that year.
