Wait. Is that really the plot?  Or are you making this up?  I can’t tell 

You are not alone.  Based on how absolutely fucking terrible the first episode was, nothing would be a surprise.

You've never lived out in the sticks where your internet speed is so shitty that streaming isn't an option? 

My parents still have dial up internet. I don't think my hometown is representative of most American households. Could be wrong but I doubt it.

i like the extreme lack of urgency among the EMT/ first responders with the guy not breathing on the ground.

1) kind of stroll casually on to the scene

2) have a polite. measured discussion on jurisdiction before attending to the guy.

Is this the thing they’re filming every few weeks on SW Pkwy that fucks up my commute? If so it can’t be canceled soon enough. 

are they do any filming Austin other than firetrucks on city streets and flyover shots?

All the locations where "acting" was occurring was in LA, right?

That seriously happened.  Not a joke.

There's been a massive production crew stationed in/around the area just NW of the Capitol (Enfield to 18th from West Avenue to Lavaca).  It's a multi-camera rig crew with a half dozen talent trailers.  And another half dozen 53' kingpin trailers, even a skid loader.  Maybe it's a movie, but it has a lower-budget vibe about it.  I don't know, I just drive by it 1-2x a day for campus business and my house.  But it could also have second-unit direction all over it for all I know.  Now, if I see Marjan walking around set in anything scantily clad, I will report post haste.

LOL I was wondering if this show was as terrible as it looked from the previews.... 

Just from the previews it seems like they are acting like Austin is some sort of hick boom town or something?  The vibe seems very early-80s-Houston-via-Urban Cowboy?

Should I watch for all of the unintentional lulz?

Me: At least there's no one wearing a cowboy hat yet.
LS911: Texas Gerry Bertier rolls up with a white cowboy hat.
Me:

Came to post the same sentiment regarding the cowboy hat and to correct your actor mishap, but you did well to sort that one out on your own.

This show is...it’s just.......

Fuck it, I’ve got nothing.

This living nightmare will not make it through 4 episodes before it is cancelled.

You know, I’m sniffing some over-under action here...

I actually saw this part...the baby was in its car seat in the tree. Lowe shimmies up the ladder and reaches to the tree ...then GASP!...the car seat falls to the ground tor everyone's horror...then somehow, some way....Lowe heroically descends the ladder holding the baby. 

It was high drama

Tuned in just in time for the horrible racist/homophobic/transphobic Texan lady who did not want the Muslim/gay/trans people to touch her.

Like others I watched this show last night after the football game out of curiosity how they would make a show set in Austin but filmed in LA look like Austin. Sadly that was low on the list of how bad it was. Only watching tonight because Texas started getting blown out in basketball. Tonight not nearly as crazy as the premier so far but this is still the worst show I’ve seen in a long time. Makes grey’s anatomy seem realistic.

This is weird because Liv Tyler spent a lot of time in Austin filming that season of the Leftovers.  And Rob Lowe and his wife used to come here to hang out with Maria Shriver and her then boyfriend who is an Austin minor celebrity.  You'd think at some point during pre-production, one of them might have said something to the effect of, "Da fuh?"  

Anyway, I'm gonna watch the first one based on your commentary on here.  But after that, I'm holding out for the episode where Rob Lowe and the engine company get called out to a highway wreckage scene where a transgender tow truck driver with MAGA tendencies has been hurling rocks with racist messages written on them upon vehicles made in Italy and South Korea.  

edit:  dammit, chronological tie with Deej

Have you seen how they remodeled that station? Only kale salads being made in that kitchen.

I was just thinking, "this show seems like it is written by people who have never lived in Texas." Popped over to check the writing credits and sure the fuck enough, Indiana, Massachusetts, New York. Hell, Jim Parrack, born in Allen, Texas, moved to LA 19 years ago. This show is about as Texan as the Californians who moved to Austin after attending one ACL or SXSW.

Props for the Houston Knights mention. Houston friends were like “This is gonna be bigger than Dallas!”

Guilty.
Was so excited with hometown pride.
Sheepishly turned it off forever 5 mins into episode 2. The network did the same shortly thereafter.
