"Let's go—let's find what we can do," Tiernach Cassidy recalls saying to fellow New York City firefighters the moment he peered through the black dust cloud and realized he was still alive after the collapse of one of the World Trade Center's twin towers. This quietly powerful two-hour special, based on Dennis Smith's best-selling book, honors that spirit of unpretentious heroism. Rescuers who made it through Sept. 11 recall friends, brothers and sons who lost their lives. Sadness, relief and bewilderment mix as survivors wonder why they were spared.
How could a good God allow the destruction of that day? That question is explored deeply in another 9/11 program, PBS's Faith and Doubt at Ground Zero, a special Frontline airing Sept. 3 at 9 (repeating Sept. 11 at 8).
Bottom Line: Top-priority reports
A&E (Sun., Sept. 8, 8 p.m. ET)
A TV critic is duty-bound to keep his eyes open, but I admit my lids got verrrry heavy during this drowsy dramatization of Ursula K. Le Guin's 1971 sci-fi novel. "My dreams change things for everyone," says George Orr (a zombielike Lukas Haas). "It's like the past never existed." Desperate to get some sleep without fear of inadvertently altering reality, George seeks help from Dr. Haber (a sluggish and unpersuasive James Caan), but the psychiatrist starts using the patient's dreams to advance his own career. Feeling exploited, George turns to lawyer Heather Lelache (Lisa Bonet), whose breathy, insinuating tone befits the bedroom more than the office. Though attorney and client eventually have sex, neither ever seems fully awake.
The book is filled with ideas on history, ecology and psychology, but they don't translate to film any better here than they did in PBS's 1980 adaptation.
