Sometimes you want to watch a well presented story, but you look at a series that has up to 10 seasons and you’re too lazy to start watching them. That’s why Bright Side decided to offer you a collection of miniseries that can make your evening better.
The first episode blew up the internet. And it’s no wonder, because the series is a brilliant cocktail of great humor, gorgeous music and a gripping story. A 40-minute episode is obviously not enough — you’ll be eagerly waiting for the next one.
In the Flesh, 2013
This is a new point of view on the zombie apocalypse: a ’healed’ man returns to his native town, trying to forget his ’zombie’ past.

Dancing on the Edge, 2013
This story’s about a group of black jazz musicians trying to reach success in the 1930s, and it’s full of xenophobia and superstition.
The Godfather, 1977
From the golden collection of cinema, it’s basically the first two movies with missing scenes.

The series came out a year before Cameron’s famous picture, and it reveals much more of the drama of people on board of the Titanic. Charming Catherine Zeta-Jones gives you no chance to ignore the series.

This is a story of the feud of two clans that almost became the reason for war between Kentucky and West Virgina. The motto ’Never forgive. Never forget’ hints that the Shakespearean Romeo and Juliet wouldn’t have a chance to survive there ... unless they have a couple of guns.
Generation Kill, 2008
This is about the 2003 war in Iraq through the eyes of common marines caught up in the military confrontation.
It’s a humorous and light interpretation of a legend about the world’s greatest womanizer. But I can hear the sound of Tardis when looking at Casanova.
