  • It took a long time for Becker to put 9/11 at the heart of an episode. Too long, given the show's undisguised gritty New York City locations.

    It took a long time for Becker to put 9/11 at the heart of an episode. Too long, given the show's undisguised gritty New York City locations. The lost woman is trying to get to Ground Zero, where her son died; the subway station she & Becker finally reach is Chambers Street. Life has returned to "normal" indifference & rudeness as people hurry by. The World Trade Center is never mentioned. Everything is implied. The other "stories" in this episode - Becker's old med school buddy with the rotten marriage, the computer fiasco at the office, the Stevie Wonder tix - are weakly pasted on. It would have been illuminating if the entire episode had focused on some aspect of each character's response to 9/11. But the show had already been canceled, so there was no need to deepen these characters any further. A season too late for this topic.
