I made it to the beginning of season 3 and ran into the special episode (Isaac and Ishmael) that they created in the wake of 9/11. It really brought me back to the confusion of those days.
Oh Gods, I would have warned you never to have watched that mess.
I think I'm one of the few people who likes that episode. I was in high school when 9/11 happened, and I didn't know much of the background of terrorism. It was a god-send for me to have these characters that I liked and respected explain things to me so well. It was especially good because at that point, no one anywhere seemed to be able to sort things out very well.
I was in high school too, and watched the episode as it aired and I hated it. You are one of the few that like it. It was horribly received by pretty much everyone for being heavy handed and the characters acting weird.
