16 of the Best Miniseries for Those With Short Attention Spans
The Looming Tower
This is the inside story about 9/11. No, it’s not a crackpot conspiracy theory series. It’s a deep look into the rise of Al-Queda in the 1990s, mounting tension between the FBI and CIA during that time, and how it all unwittingly led to the September 11th attacks. The series explores the many governmental entities that fought each other for information, sometimes actively fighting against their best interests, for the same end goal: prevent an attack on American soil. In the end, they didn’t succeed as history shows us. The miniseries is based upon a book of the same name that charts the rise of Al-Queda and the U.S.’s involvement. It’s one of the best miniseries to show a recent historical event (no powdered wigs here!) and do it in a way that has never been done before.
