Contents

Definitions

made-for-TV movie
Any motion picture, scripted or documentary, which first premiered on television or which was produced and funded by one or more television networks for the express purpose of being distributed on television, even if its premiere was not on television (i.e.: film festival screenings).
miniseries
Any series which fits the definition of miniseries as it is defined in the TV IV Glossary, excluding those miniseries which are seasons of a non-limited TV series.
special
Any production premiering on television which is intended to be a stand-alone production, including those specials which are stand-alone episodes of a television series unless the special airs during the usual night and time of the series itself and summarizes major plots and themes in the series. (In other words, the Lost specials would not be eligible, because they're clip episodes of the series for new viewers which air in Lost's usual timeslot, but the BBC's The Office Christmas Special would have been.)

  • I was quite disappointed that this miniseries didn't get the ratings it needed to become a regular series. The concept was intriguing, the plot was well laid out and the performances were top notch especially for a Sci Fi Channel miniseries. --The-jam 18:11, 4 February 2008 (EST)

  • This BBC thriller was exciting from start to finish with some great twists. It wasn't as anti-American as I expected (or at least was just as much anti-Britain so it wasn't as grating) and Jason Isaacs great performance as Ambassador Brydon really held the whole thing together.--The-jam 18:11, 4 February 2008 (EST)

  • This miniseries really personallized the war and illuminated many tragedies, atrocities and triumphs that are often overlooked. --The-jam 18:11, 4 February 2008 (EST)
