9-1-1: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

9-1-1: Season 1 (2018)




Critic 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.

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 (14)

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

August 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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.

February 7, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
