I'm mostly sceptical when it comes to US shows dealing with stuff like 911. You never now what you get when you begin, as some of them have a tendency to resolve the government of any fault. Not this one, though. While they don't claim the story they present here as facts (only based upon but dramatized as said in the disclaimer) I think they are pointing the finger in the right direction. I could've done without all the personal stuff but I guess it is necessary to make the charaters appear more relatable for the viewer. After all, this isn't a documentary. Top notch on the production side, cast is great, you see and feel a lot of work went into this show. 8.6 on average rounds up to 9

I don't know the whole story about the lead up to 9/11...but if this show makes you realize anything, is that bureaucracy can be deadly. I don't know if there was actually as much infighting between the CIA and the FBI, but if there was, no wonder we didn't prevent the attack on the Twin Towers. Jeff Daniels is brilliant as usual, and hopefully his death helped us get better as a country and make us realize that we are all on the same side.

What a shitty job the CIA did! The only thing they were able to do right was covering up their asses... They probably didn’t want to ruin their almost perfect “record” of failures.

Complex, intelligent, and sobering; superb television Based on The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 (2006), Lawrence Wright's exhaustively researched and critically acclaimed winner of the Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction (2007), whilst the book is about how al-Qaeda succeeded (with a lot of time spent delineating just why they hated American culture so much), the TV show is about how the US failed. It's a story of arrogance, incompetence, ignorance, and tragic inevitability. And although the binary of CIA=bad/FBI=good is more than a little reductionist, and whilst there's a real dearth of information on al-Qaeda itself, this is a deeply sobering series, which is at its infuriating best when it shows us, as it does time and again, just how easily these globe-altering events could have been prevented.
