9-1-1: Lone Star: Season 1 (2019)


Season 1
9-1-1: Lone Star

Critics Consensus

If not as outlandishly fun as its predecessor, 9-1-1: Lone Star still packs an entertaining punch and is a great showcase for the handsomely self-aware Rob Lowe.

Critic Reviews for 9-1-1: Lone Star Season 1

There's something almost impressively brazen about the way these shows use melodrama, embracing it like old-fashioned soap opera writers.

Jan 18, 2020 | Full Review…

With his bronzed physique and chiseled chin, [Rob] Lowe looks like he's doing an infomercial, not playing a character.

Jan 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Those elements are decent enough and 911: Lone Star is still primarily a fun/thrilling escape. I was most amused by the way it uses Lowe, an actor who has become iconic both for his handsomeness and his awareness of his own handsomeness.

Jan 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Owen has many shades of Lowe's "Parks and Recreation" character Chris Traeger, obsessed with his physical appearance and holistic health, and it's welcome to see Lowe talk about fish oil supplements with such panache again.

Jan 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The presence of a charismatic and inclusive ensemble is enough to make one wish the show were able to pull back a bit more from its lead. It's not quite an emergency, just something that will take doing as the show evolves.

Jan 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Sensitive first responder spin-off has violence, innuendo.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

So as long as Lone Star remembers the enduring appeal of these silly shows, we should be in for another wild ride in the 9-1-1 Extended Universe...

Jan 24, 2020 | Full Review…

9-1-1: Lone Star isn't a bad addition to the franchise so far, it's just not as winning out of the gate as the first. It's because they're trying too darn hard to be too many things all at once at the expense of the fun of the original.

Jan 23, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Clearly I have some reservations about the plot of 9-1-1: Lone Star, but if I'm being honest, that's really all secondary to the series' biggest fault: THE LACK OF INTERESTING EMERGENCIES.

Jan 21, 2020 | Full Review…

It is in the little moments of showing these characters as humans first that this show is going to break new ground and develop into something wonderful and unique.

Jan 21, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

No one can be painted with broad strokes, and to anyone accusing the show of trying to be woke, 9-1-1: Lone Star is enthusiastically nodding and smiling that yes, that is exactly what's happening.

Audience Reviews for 9-1-1: Lone Star: Season 1

  • Dec 10, 2020
    This is my current favorite TV show. Full of budding young actors with immense talent and some more well known actors, the show has extreme potential for their upcoming season. When compared side by side with the original 9-1-1, it may seem to pale in comparison. Lonestar is more focused on the characters and developing the storylines during the first season, leaving a lack of exciting emergencies. But it stands apart from the original 9-1-1 with more representation, the main ship being a gay one, and will continue to do so as it has more chance to grow. From the look of the second season trailers, there is so much more to come. 10/10 recommend!

    I loved 911, so was eagerly awaiting this, sadly it is a very pale imitation. Where 911 was fantastically diverse with likeable characters and storylines, this felt as though so much time was spent ticking every box on the diversity list that they forgot to write decent characters and storylines. Rob Lowes character lacked.... well everything, the content of the call outs didnt seem credible and dont even get me started of Liv Tyler's voice, has she forgotten how to act, or is her character really meant to be that horribly monotonous. So lone star ends up being a real shame, and a wasted opportunity and not something I'll be watching again, I'll stick with the original and far better 911

    Loved this show can't wait for next season!

    I love this show and the diversity is excellent.

    I couldn't make it through the first episode. I would think a studio would visit a city before making a show around or. Austin is a very inclusive city and this show is just trying hard to paint it as a hick town with nothing to offer but racist. If you think a transvestite or homosexual is going to stand out in a city that literally has the slogan "Keep Austin Weird" you really don't understand Texas.

    Sobra decir que este spin-off no alcanza los niveles de grandeza de su serie madre, decepcionando desde el principio y así sucesivamente, esta serie parece una más del montón sin aportar nada más que la corrección política de Disney y si no fuera por su título ni se notaría que es una expansión de 911, incluso no sé cuál es la idea de bajarle el brillo a la imagen. Con actuaciones aceptables, los protagonistas Rob Lowe y Liv Tyler salvan esta serie, incluso sus historias son las únicas que interesan, ya que las de los demás son tontas, se esperaría al menos ver más casos, esta serie no presenta tantos casos y profundiza más en los banales dramas de sus personajes. Sin embargo, los 3 últimos capítulos si valen la pena, tal vez se dieron cuenta de los errores cometidos y levantaron esta historia, al ser renovada para una segunda temporada, ojalá la calidad sea superior a esta primera temporada.

    Love the show but Liv Tyler's voice and presence in the show ruins it for me! She is horrible!
  • May 26, 2020
    Clearly no one in this show has ever been to Austin or anyone in Texas for that matter. This show is a cringey, uncomfortable jumble of empty virtue signaling and shallow attempts and bonding between the characters. It lacks any substance or interest. What a terrible waste of my time.

    This is pretty much as good as the LA 9-1-1, with edge of your seat rescues and a shocking beginning. I feel the filming is a bit poor in the show, the original has done this a few maybe a couple of times too, but with interesting characters and tension like the original, 9-1-1 Lone Star proves worthy.
