5 TV Shows That (Might) Have Been Better As Miniseries

Back in the day, they were all the rage. "They" were miniseries. A surefire way to assure audiences, they could invest in characters they love, and a journey they could be confident they could see to the end. With the TV shows that are currently on the air, they will either get one season, or be cancelled in the midst of their first season, leaving many fans disappointed. 

If the show is a hit, it can remain on the air, well past its expiration date, leaving a once quality show with a quantity of episodes that serve as a painful reminder of a hay day that has long since past.

Another advantage to miniseries is that actors, who are hesitant to commit for a 5 to 7 year contract (the normal contract time for a television series) would have the ability to reach a wide audience by appearing on television while, having the freedom to pursue film roles. With that Eclectic Pop presents a list of shows currently on the air that would be better served in a fate that will circumvent both of these sad outcomes, by being a miniseries.

Movie Review: 'Spring Breakers' (2012)

"Spring Breakers" follows four degenerate college girls as they head to spring break after robbing a restaurant filled with customers so they can have the money to go on their dream trip. It never occurs to them to lighten up on their expensive drug habit so they can have the money without needing to commit armed robbery (with a water gun) and terrorize others in the process. At the heart of "Spring Breakers" is that key indictment.
