Rather than talking about the event itself, I'd much rather reflect on all of the amazing artistic responses the September 11th terror attacks elicited. Tragedy always requires an emotional outlet, and these films and TV shows, at least, in my opinion, captured them perfectly. And, frankly, I don't think any of these shows would have existed in the form that we know them without that awful day. These are just the top few off the top of my head on a Monday morning. I'll add as more occur to me, but please, feel free to chime in yourselves.
