The Original Fire Department Show For Fox - 9-1-1: The Original - Season 1 Review & Breakdown

Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹ Fans of 911:The Original, Welcome to My first ever review of 911:The Original. This show has become a highly recommend and successful show in its own right. This review is an extended version of what I have posted on #twitter @tvfanaticau (#ad) as quick thoughts and reactions to the show.

๐Ÿš’ 911- Season 1 Review ๐Ÿš’

911 is Foxโ€™s version of a fire and rescue drama that stars Peter Krause, Angela Bassett and Oliver Stark. Season 1 is an introduction to the series that Explores the high-pressure experiences of the first responders who are thrust into the most frightening, shocking and heart-stopping situations. IMDB,2020. throughout the first episodes of the season we get to see a solid introduction to the characters of the show in unit 118 and the emergency call centre and those first episodes we also get the see the group dynamics within the unit 118 and the relationships within and outside the unit 118. also in the first season, we get to see Each character is introduced in a way that is interesting to the audience and the ideas for future storylines and character arcs in future seasons, this done in an instance of Chimney's accident and the fallout and the recovery from that. I also like how the character is developed to have a set of problems that they are facing in the real world of the story.

As Season 1 progresses, as an audience of the show, we get to see what problems and situations that they are facing in their lives and how they are doing to deal with those situations.for example, there is substance abuse problems, major family changes that are impacting on the characters and with the problems that are facing each character, the casting agent for the show has done a wonderful job of placing the right actor for the job. I believe that Peter Krause is the best man to be on the call sheet at N.o. 1 as he brings the cast in as a sort of father figure in the younger crew members as well as mentor and leader to the all of the crew on unit 118. and also I love Angela Bassett as well she helps bring the show to another level as well. From Season 1 Episode 1 of 911, from a relationship standpoint, we get to see how the relationships that firefighters have within the firehouse. But also outside of the firehouse, we get to see how unit 118 is able to work together as a team and working to towards a common goal when every time that unit gets called out. As there is a second season, I hope to see that to build upon those interactions within the unit 118. As throughout season 1, we explore the relationships that are outside to the firehouse. We get to see how these characters grow and change with these relationships. For example, each of the characters, we get to see what relationships that they have in the firehouse as well outside the firehouse. Such as Abby and Buck getting together and how Athena deals with her messy divorce and family drama as well. g together and how Athena deals with her messy divorce and family drama as well. Again I would like to see more relationships with the characters that were underdeveloped for season 1 to be developed further in S2.

let's dive into my thoughts and overall opinions on the show.

At first, I was sceptical of the show, I have been a fan of NBCโ€™s Chicago Fire Series, and no one has the ability to top or match the drama that shows brings to of it audience and the fandoms that are behind. So when ABC decided to bring 911 to the table. I was still on the fence. So when I found out that Peter Krause was headlining the project. I was, be coming less sceptical of the show as I have admired his work since I watched the little project Six Feet Under when I was younger. So I watched the whole season in one hit as the show had come to Australia TV. And I became hooked on the show. So I have to mentioned quickly I have seen 911 before multiple times. I am now just getting to my thoughts and opinions on the show.

Overall 911 - The original season 1 is a good foundation to build upon for the writers and creators of the show. And I look forward to rewatching it soon, but not in the near future, just probably just before S4 comes out in Australia.

I give the show an overall rating of 7/10 overall.
