'West Wing'

Creator Aaron Sorkin's fast-talking series about the president of the United States' support staff aired a hastily arranged special episode less than a month after the attacks. In the episode, a breach of security in the White House causes a lockdown, forcing the staff to hang out in the cafeteria with a bunch of teenagers, who were visiting the White House on a field trip. During the episode, titled "Isaac and Ishmael," the characters talked openly and directly about issues of terrorism. Warner Bros.
