911 is awful

So it’s such a stupid representation of reality it makes no sense at all! They depict a young girl has a 911 operator I wouldn’t trust her to drive my car much less be a 911 operator! It is completely absurd

Age 11 with parents, 14 alone

BEST SHOW EVER!!! Definitely appropriate for families and kids aged 11 should watch with parents because of making out and scenes that talk about sex, etc. as well as some gory scenes. I’d say 14-year-olds and up could watch alone.
