Oh, is it a one off movie? I thought it was a TV show (like how they adopted MASH)
As did I. But yeah it's on my watch list so I'll see if I can get mrs lunch involved.

Miniseries would be the correct term. A quick Google lends me to the theory that it's just marketing to make people think it's a series. Not sure what the difference is between a series vs a miniseries but apparently enough to try to frame the marketing a certain way.

A miniseries is two episodes or more but less than a full season that is not intended to be an ongoing concern. A limited series is closer to a full season but also not intended to be renewed.

Focus is a charming movie that gets a lot of mileage out of Will Smith and Margot Robbie's charisma, but the tonal whiplash might be enough to keep it out of the pantheon of great con movies.

I'm watching What If on Netflix. Two episodes in I have some issues with the writing, but I highly recommend that Ellie watch the end of the second episode: three dudes have sex with each other.

If you're not tired of dark, gritty, euro-noir mysteries yet, Black Spot (Zone Blanche in French) is pretty good; on Netflix.

I saw about 45 minutes of Suicide Squad. It was... not good. Either a large piece had been cut for airing on TNT, or else it was remarkably incoherent. The second by second tonal shifts were quite something, too.
