  • 7 years later this episode still resonates strongly in my mind.

    I was watching The West Wing when the planes hit the tower, and at first I thought it was part of the show. A few weeks later this was the first episode of The West Wing to come back on TV over here in Australia. 7 years later and Josh's quote "Islamic extremist is to Islam as the KKK is to Christianity" still sticks in my mind and to be honest when someone is picking on Muslims for simply being who they are I will quote it. With the horrors that the world and particularly the Americans had undergone from those attacks, for the writers and actors to be able to go back to work and send across this strong of a message. Simply amazing. This episode highlights the ability of the writers and the cast to handle the big Subjects, the ones which make others shy away. Many shows did not mention 911 for a few months to a year. Not so this show, The West Wing got up and did a special episode that resonates with the world even more so today then when it was first aired.
