Viewers don't need a new miniseries about the 2016 presidential election that HBO has announced that it is planning to make. While the show will probably be done professionally, there is no need to relive the two-year election cycle, which was one of America's most polorizing period in history, writes Christine Rousell in Townhall. According to Rousell, once was more than enough.
A television series based on the 2016 election could be good for American viewers. Despite arguments that Americans are still exhausted from the drama of the real election, a miniseries that recaptures it could be very a cathartic experience, writes Kaitlin Reilly in Refinery 29. A deep, reflective show about American society during the election would be welcome.
