    * The opening credits of the first three seasons of the HBO mob drama The Sopranos (1999 – 2007) featured a shot of the World Trade Center as seen from the rear view mirror of Tony Soprano's SUV, as he enters the New Jersey Turnpike. In later seasons, after 9/11, the sequence was replaced with a new view of the Manhattan skyline in which the World Trade Center is absent. Among the things Tony later discloses to his psychiatrist Jennifer Melfi as contributing to his depression is "this whole 9/11 thing."

    * The Twin Towers appear in the opening title for early episodes of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit (1999-present). The sequence is replaced after 9/11 with generic shots of the city.

    * The TV series Third Watch, (1999 – 2005) set in New York, featured many shots of the Towers during the show's first 2 seasons. One final shot appeared in the episode September 10, set the day before the attacks.

    * King of Queens shows shots of New York with the WTC.

    * Sex and the City, another HBO original series, also showed a quick shot of the World Trade Center in its opening credits (with the name of its lead actress, Sarah Jessica Parker). For seasons 5 and 6, shown after 9/11, the visual was changed to a stylized shot of the Empire State Building.[16]
