Best HBO/AMC/etc TV Mini Series of All Time...

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

The cedar roasted asparagus has good chew. I don't know how to enjoy it, so I'll Instagram it instead.

In all honesty... i actually used to get into All my Children.

My aunt used to come watch it at our house every afternoon because she worked next door, and we only had the one television... so I would end up watching it as well. Then she changed jobs... and I was hooked into the story so watched it anyway. Eventually I kicked the habit... but that shit can be addictive.

I loved season 1, but I feel like waiting to see where they take season 2 before putting it in my hall of fame.

Dexter almost made it in there for me, but just got redundant towards the last few seasons.

First couple of seasons of Dexter had me hooked (ambulance background) but I stopped watching once it turned to crap.
