Extremely good series.
From episode one, emotions start pouring from survivors or residents from the area. This series doesn't focus on what actually happened; it focuses on moving forward and rebuilding. You'll never want to leave your seat while watching this. The narration is perfect as well as everything else. Saw it on TV so I'll be buying this :D
Speilberg does it again
Speilberg has taken this rebuilding of an American landmark and showed us anothor side to it. He showed us the people behind it, the builders, the contracters, the affected families and from there followed them as they healed. As the Freedom Tower rose, we learned more about them. It shows us to not take that day as a day of defeat but to take it as an example to make the next day a better day for all. The new WTC will be amazing tribute to the heros that died that day and will reminds all of us to honor them and to "never forget."
I'm 13 years old. I always watched things about September 11th and since me being a kid, I never realized exactly how scary it was. But now that I've matured, it makes me cry or tear up every time I watch something like that. So it's very nice to watch a show that mostly focuses on how we are moving on and well, rebuilding. It makes me so happy and tear up when I watch these episodes because we are rebuilding and it shows just how amazing the people are that work there. Everyone there has a story and it's so nice to know that people are there almost everyday to rebuild something like this. I LOVE this series and I think EVERYONE should watch it.
