SciFi and 9/11 (Part 2)

On "Battlestar Galactica," "Falling Skies," and "The Leftovers"

New Books Network 2021

In this second of two discussions about SciFi and 9/11, we look at 3 tv series: Battlestar Galactica, Falling Skies and The Leftovers. This is the last episode of Season 1. We will return later in the year with Season 2, in which we look at how Hollywood has represented revolts and insurrections over the years, and how current events influenced those depictions at the time.
