9-1-1: Season 1 (2018)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

9-1-1 occasionally veers into melodrama, but is redeemed with a top-tier cast, adrenaline-pumping action, and a dash of trashy camp that pushes the show into addictive guilty pleasure territory.

Tv Season Info

The first season of "911" introduces and follows the lives of a team of Los Angeles City first responders: LAPD patrol sergeant Athena Grant (Angela Bassett), LAFD Captain Bobby Nash (Peter Krause), 911 operator Abby Clark (Connie Britton), and firefighters Evan "Buck" Buckley (Oliver Stark), Howie "Chimney" Han (Kenneth Choi), and Henrietta "Hen" Wilson (Aisha Hinds). Athena deals with the disintegration of her marriage after her husband Michael (Rockmond Dunbar) comes out as gay. Bobby struggles with alcoholism, while Abby strives to meet the needs of her dementia-stricken mother. Chimney fights for his life after an accident on the job, Buck works up the nerve to ask Abby on a date, and Hen faces the impact of granting her ex-girlfriend a favor on her marriage.

Critic Reviews for 9-1-1 Season 1

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (16)

With the counterbalance of performances that are going for something much more honest, the show can have its cake, eat it too and send it crashing through three floors of a poorly constructed wedding venue.

The Fox procedural 911 is absolutely impossible to watch with a straight face, despite the earnest attempts of its A-list cast.

And the show has other stars: the emergencies themselves. Each of the three in the pilot episode is introduced like a graphic on the local evening news, with an audio wave and subtitles adorning each call to Britton's operator.

9-1-1 is insufferable, but it's also watchable. Take your pick of "-ables."

... there's nothing particularly graphic or daring.

To be honest, I'm not quite sure whether I am meant to be sitting on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, or rolling around on the floor, laughing. And, in the end, I'm not really doing any of it. Or caring an awful lot.

Part of the fun is watching the writers create some unbelievable emergencies for the characters to face.

It turns out she would, kind of. 9-1-1 is a procedural in the sense that each episode involves multiple rescues by the first responders, but it's just so off-the-wall that I refuse to believe this is what's happening on like, Chicago Fire.

All season long we have watched the wonderfully complex members of the LAPD, LAFD, and 9-1-1 dispatch grow and come together.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

I'm here to convince you that this trashy show is spectacular and that you must immediately begin watching this nonsense.

Feb 13, 2018 | Full Review…

The show is never not walking a tightrope between pulp absurdity and grave life-and-death drama, and to its credit, the pilot episode is really good at knowing when to pick a side.

Jan 25, 2018 | Full Review…

This show is wild as hell.

Audience Reviews for 9-1-1: Season 1

    A great setup, not as good as the later seasons but still fun
  • Jun 04, 2020
    Despair, adrenaline, creativity and emotion are all that the new series offers us: "9-1-1"
  • May 14, 2020
    I really really liked this show. Watched season 1, but in the 5th episode, too many controversial themes started emerging. Lost interest...
  • Feb 07, 2020
    Awesome show! Love that they cover spirituality, prayer & church. Wholesome content & love the show!
  • Feb 04, 2020
    This show is refreshingly good. It's got a bit of everything from drama to procedural. It's a great show to just get lost in.
  • Jan 24, 2020
    Might be the most fast paced, dramatic, awful script I've ever witnessed.
  • Jan 12, 2020
    I really truly loved this show....at first. No matter what I do, I cannot connect to one of the lead firefighters back story. It's awful, criminal and he is no hero. Yet everyone sees him as such. I watched into a bit of the second season and just could not get passed it 🤷🏻‍♀️ I have not watched it since

    Corny. Boring. Dim. Goofy. Silly. Dumb. Unrealistic. Gross characterizations. Vomit. Angela Bassett is the Captain Kirk of overacting.
  • Nov 11, 2019
    It is an incredible television series, it is touching, it is funny, exciting and with a great cast of actors.
  • Oct 18, 2019
    It's a flawed show for sure but it's highly entertaining. Sometimes it's beyond ridiculous but that's TV today. The best part of this show is that they do a nice job developing characters. Thus far every one has had a "Character's name begins" where they explain how they came to their job. The cast is incredible. Angela Bassett is the best looking 60 year old woman on earth and I don't know if a woman has played a cop better since Regina King in Southland. Also enjoy Kenneth Choi among other supporting characters. I'm disappointed they lost connie Britton -- her replacement Jennifer Love Hewitt has never been a particularly great actress but she has a strong performance every now and then.
