There is a major difference in what constitutes a movie and what makes a TV mini-series.
A movie has a main plot and maybe a few subplots, then BOOM it's over.
A TV mini-series is a movie that you forgot to edit and it runs for at least 3 hours or so. It has the same main plot and subs, but it also has long drawn-out scenes that don't add anything substantial to the story.
They're just used as bloated…
