The Looming Tower (Hulu)
 
Just finished S1E1. I am hooked. It traces the rising threat of UBL in the late 90's and the rivalry between the CIA and FBI during that time period. Jeff Daniels and Peter Skaarsgard star.

My bad, Polypro beat me to it. Great series, so far.

Just saw Ep 1. Really like it. Thanks for the recommendation. I guess the best TV is no longer on TV(Hulu).

I don't care for Jeff Daniels at all, but he plays a good part. His character is one horny SOB!

GOOD series .

He was said to have "sharp elbows" and I'm sure the pussy .gover's hated him. Don't know if any of them died pulling people out of 1 WTC like he did though...

Poly,

According to Murry's book, it was to the point that's why he finally retired from the FBI. Due to all the sniping he was getting from supervisors to including his outting in the NY Times about some discipline issues he'd had encountered in the past.
