Movies are too short for some, shows too long for others. Enter middle-ground solution: miniseries. Now that the "movies are dying" articles are the only thing that's actually dying, and the "it's the golden age of TV" ones have stopped being news (why does one being in a golden age mean the other is failing?), there is a newcomer to the scene. Perfected by networks like the BBC in the past, the form is attracting growing attention from Netflix and similar platforms. 4 to 8 episodes, one season, done. Creators have more time to express their ideas, but not too long to have to recycle them. Viewers can be exposed to 7 different stories instead of 7 different seasons of Homeland (they made 4 after he died, four). It's the perfect medium, and provided Netflix and the BBC keep coming out with good ones like the 5 below, it will be the future.
