The Path to 9/11 - Review

Watched on weekend, this fantastic series....
Plot Outline: A television mini-series on the events leading up to the US terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

Review from IMDB....

As someone who finds most television incredibly boring, I have to say I was completely gripped by this mini-series, perhaps because it was so unlike what you normally get on the tube. I loved the gritty film-making style, and I thought the casting and performances were great. David L. Cunningham is not a well known name right now, but that should change after this mini-series. Too bad he'll probably go on to direct features, because we could use more guys like him on the small screen.In terms of all the political flak this series has attracted, I can't see what all the fuss is about. Yeah, the show throws a few barbs Clinton's way, but every show has some point of view. If the Democrats don't like it, they can always respond to the truth as they see it.Congrats to ABC on having the guts to show this in spite of all the threats and criticism they received.
