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 (15)

It could yet turn out to be a classic of the lantern-jawed hero genre.

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.

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.

    While 9-1-1 will never be mistaken as a heartfelt tribute to the work ethic and courage of first responders, it does serve as an addictive and melodramatic show that will please audiences who just want some creative action.

    Uma excelente série com ótimas performances de atores. Ryan Murphy mostra-nos mais uma vez que é capaz de inovar em cada produção da sua autoria. Impossível não querer ver mais episódios desta série!

    The first season was OK, but it got extra cheesy at times and very predictable and over the top. It's not realistic at all. Season 2 gets even worse.
  • Oct 08, 2018
    Best Tv series ever makes Chicago fire afraid
  • Oct 05, 2018
    The pace of 9-1-1 is perfect and every episode was gripping viewing. The casting and chemistry between the characters comes across as genuine, sincere and believable and that is what helps you to root for them and genuinely care about what happens to them. So for that this easily gets 5 stars.

    I love this show. I can’t get enough of the characters.

    OMG!! Are you kidding me?!!?! The season premier "earthquake" was pitiful!! i've lived through real large earthquakes. the buildings in major cities- wealthy cities are built to withstand major earthquakes. there is so much wrong with the acting... angela bassett- girl... wTH?? you are sooo much better than this crap....

    Exhilarating, extreme and at times swoon-worthy, the show is propelled by great cinematography and top-notch casting.
  • Sep 22, 2018
    I love it. The strength lies in the wonderful ensemble cast, especially the women.. I hope it is renewed for a second season so it can really find its stride.
  • Aug 27, 2018
    It is probably one of the worsts Ryan Murphy series, because of its too much explored and, sometimes, repetitive story, but the cast is top notch and the well constructed plot is interesting.
