Television Shows that should have been Mini Series
instead of being a one season loser.
RINGER - how could the writers even imagine keeping this going for a number of seasons?
Of the new shows:
666 Park Avenue
dirty sexy money
I think most shows would benefit from the 13 episode season like cable and if they do well, keep on.
Life on Mars, if only to save it from the sucky ending episode.
There's too much money in syndication for which they need 100 eps.
""Life on Mars", if only to save it from the sucky ending episode."
Was the ending similar to the original UK series?
I saw both, but I forgot the US shows ending.
If the ending was the same, then, the US show was basically a mini series!
Anything that was created by Ryan Murphy.
No the US ending had him in a spaceship headed to Mars. Both lives were fantasies...dumb as dirt finale.
Umm, R7, honey?
The only way 666 Park Avenue is going to make it is if it becomes a Fantasy Island or Love Boat type show.
New Normal: mini series ends with birth of new baby.
NBC shit on that show.
Back in the 1980's it would have been a mini series with no troubles, though.
I'm so glad American Horror Story is going the miniseries route. I hope other shows do something similar.
Missing with Ashley Judd went the mini-series route
"The only way 666 Park Avenue is going to make it is if it becomes a Fantasy Island or Love Boat type show."
The potential to be a good show was there, but the scripts are ridiculous. The young husband has no charisma and most of the characters aren't very likable.
IIRC, Vanessa Williams character doesn't realize her husband is the Devil. When she was reading her late daughter's suicide note, the daughter told her in the note to get away from him because he was evil.
Lost needed several seasons. It had a good last season, but a bad finale.
Ringer is a good choice.
I just watched the first few episodes of Ringer....and then watched the last episode.
It was on Netflix streaming. Couldn't believe how weak it was and had the worst ending ever.
Stephanie Powers was in a mini-series of the same genre in the '80's.
