I can honestly say I wasn’t sure what to expect when I heard about 9-1-1. I received the opportunity to screen the show ahead of time and was pleasantly surprised. 9-1-1 is a fast-paced and intimate look into the lives and careers of first responders. That includes our brave police officers, paramedics and firefighters.
From the moment someone dials 9-1-1 they put their trust into the person on the other line and many others that may be involved. It’s such an intricate and collective effort that I think many of us don’t even give a second thought. Here are 3 reasons why 9-1-1 on FOX is a must see!
3 reasons why 9-1-1 on FOX is a must see
Amazing Cast: Angela Bassett plays Athena Grant a field sergeant, wife and mother of 2. Even from episode 1 we can see that she’s going on a rollercoaster of a journey. But she’s a total badass when it comes to doing her job. Peter Krause, who you may know from shows like The Catch or Six Feet Under, plays Bobby Nash, the fire captain with a bit of a soft heart lol. Connie Britton plays Abby Clark a 911 operator. While she’s not out in the field, she shows just how important 911 operators are and how much they experience.
Fast Paced and Action Filled: All I can say is you don’t want to blink with this show, lol. If all the episodes are like the first one, you’ll be able to see multiple calls which will leave your heart racing.
Unique Perspective: While we’ve all seen cop or paramedic shows, I think 9-1-1 offers the unique perspective of 9-1-1 operators. After watching episode 1, I realized just heroic that field is too.
