I tried to avoid watching any and all 9/11-themed TV series and movies this year, but the other night when Zabuza and I got home late at night, he flipped to "The Path to 9/11," and that little streak ended. I wasn't really pleased to watch it, far from it, I'd rather put 9/11 and all of the memories, conspiracy theories and bullshit patriotism* behind me. So after 10 minutes I had reached the point where I just needed to change the channel or walk out of the room a lot.

Either way, several entertainment sites have criticized "Path" as "shockingly ficticious" and "a load of crap."

A couple of them, including VH1's Best Week Ever blog, have directed readers to this video:

Anyone see anything and how was it?

*Yesterday, I had attended a 9/11 firefighers ceremony in Long Beach, in front of this one man's house. It was moving and many people broke into tears, but then they brought out this group of girls to sing. There were verses that went something like the "firefighters died to defend our democracy" or "our country is free and blessed and pure" and other such lines. I swear, wherever Bush was at the time, he must have creamed his pants.

I was at a friends, pretty bored and wanted to watch WWE Wrestling (no joke), but he kept turning it back.

I don't know if I have anything to say about it. I didn't pay that much attention at times, but it didn't seem to be really anything about conspiracy theories, just retelling of what "supposedly" happened. One thing I thought was weird was how they seemed as if they wanted the watchers, to feel some kind of connection with the group of people who eventually hijacked the planes, and crashed them. I mean, doesn't that seem a little ... odd? We were supposed to feel some kind of connection with them? Other than that, I just didn't have a lot of interest in it. Its not like it was a good thing that happened, and I can't imagine how annoying it can be for some people out there when they're reminded of these events. Yes, its history, but as many have said hasn't it been almost too soon to already start showing movies, a mini series and whatnot over those events? From only a few years ago.

As for what happened, I'm not all for some of the conspiracies out there. But, it is something I'd consider researching if I just so happen to find myself in another country sometime in my life. The internet can be filtered, Google, anything. Tiananmen Square comes to mind for an example of how the internet can be filtered. So, its just something to be curious about possibly sometime down the road, or for any major American event for that matter.
