It’s great!

I watched this show with my teens and I really enjoyed it. I have a gay child and they felt very represented so I really appreciated it.

9-1-1 Lone Star

Normally I don't like spin offs like NCIS New Orleans CSI Miami but this was really good and had a great leading cast. and addressing Shari R. This is a TV show its like saying watching Judge Judy will make you determine if someone goes to jail or not this is just entertainment. And this show has great diversity. In Austin, Texas some people don't like diversity. I am not saying all people but there are some. There is a Islamic firefighter (if Im wrong about her religion please I am not trying to be offensive I just think that is what her religion is) There is a gay firefighter and a transgender firefighter and the chief has cancer this show has great role models and a great show for the family and one of the best cop shows in a long time. Language wise its the most of the stuff you expect in western set movies/tv shows damn hell are the main offenders and about once or twice even if it gets said an episode you get bitch and 3 times the entire season the say dick. Hopefully this helps you make your decsion. Oh yeah the sex scenes you can just skip 5-10 seconds and its to the aftermath and your not missing any main points.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

This dramatic series offers a compelling and sensitive story world in which firefighters and rescue crews are committed to doing their job while grieving those who have died doing theirs. Through Captain Strand, the memory of 9/11 is a consistent theme as he deals with its far-reaching aftermath, and uses this experience to help Judd Ryder and the rest of the team. But 9-1-1 Lone Star offers enough action-packed scenes, daring rescues, romantic entanglements, and funny tension-easing moments to keep it from feeling too heavy. No doubt that fans of the original series will enjoy tuning in.
