9-1-1: Season 1 – Opinion

9-1-1 premieres January 3rd, 9pm on FOX.

Super-producer Ryan Murphy has once again created a show for FOX. Unlike his other projects that rely on season long story arcs, this new program is more in line with a standard procedural.

9-1-1 explores the high-pressure experiences of police, paramedics, and firefighters who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking, and heart-stopping situations. These emergency responders must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in their own lives. Each episode focuses on a different call, but you still get to learn about the characters.

As always with Murphy, there is a stellar cast. Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, What’s Love Got to Do with It), Peter Krause (The Catch, Six Feet Under), and Connie Britton (Nashville, Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story) star. Oliver Stark (Into The Badlands), Aisha Hinds (Shots Fired, Underground), Kenneth Choi (The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story), and Rockmond Dunbar (Prison Break, The Path) are also on board.

In addition to a large marketing campaign, FOX has given 9-1-1 a great time slot: Right after The X-Files! It looks like network executives are confident this show will continue to hold a crowd.

  1. This isn’t a review. There’s no opinion or commentary on the quality of the show. But thanks for the useless recap regarding the high quality cast (obvious) and the primo time slot. (More obvious).

  2. The pilot episode is so pathetic, I can’t imagine this show making it even half-way through a season. The writing is as bad as a low-budget horror flick. They obviously do not have technical advisers, as there is so much wrong with every incident in the pilot episode. Having been in multiple aspects of public safety for over 25 years, I was hoping for a good show finally; denied, this is one of the worst.
