911


911 is a new drama that comes on the Fox network. It is written by the creators of Glee and American Horror Story, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. The show stars Angela Bassett as a Los Angeles Sergeant who is trying to balance her failing marriage with her duties as a cop. The show is all about first responders (firefighters, paramedics, dispatchers, and police officers) and the calls that they respond to.

The first season introduces the main characters. The format includes every 911 call is announced and then viewers watch the first responders as they attempt to save lives. The Fire Chief is a recovering alcoholic and drug user. Although the police sergeant is married with two kids, she recently learns that her husband is gay. Against he advice of the family therapist, her husband reveals this to their children. This causes turmoil for her daughter who attempts suicide because she is being bullied. The main 911 dispatcher is trying to help each caller while at work and also taking care of her mother who has late-stage alzheimer's disease.

Except to see a variety of situations with the 911 calls including attempted suicides, a roller coaster accident, a woman being choked to death by her pet snake, rescuing a newborn stuck in a pipe, and an airplane crash. One challenging part of the show is the fact that not all lives are saved. In addition, the firefighters are faced with an in-house emergency when one of their own is involved in a near fatal auto accident. A good part is seeing how the leads work through their feelings when they lose a life.

Pros

*Tons of action with very creative emergency situations
*Unique format with the viewer hearing each actual 911 call
*All of the cast share a relationship in some capacity and seem to work well together

Cons

*Weak storylines
*Lack of cohesion from one call to another

The first season consists of 13 episodes and has already been green lighted for a second season. You can catch past episodes on Fox on Demand or Hulu.
