A TV show usually features a set of actors in a somewhat familiar setting. The program follows their lives and their adventures. With the exception of soap operas, if some change happened to the characters lives during the episode,
it was usually undone by the end.Common TV show periods include regular broadcasts (like
news), series (usually seasonal and ongoing with a duration of only a
few episodes to many seasons), or miniseries, which is an extended film, usually with a small predetermined number of episodes and a set plot and timeline.
