9-1-1: Lone Star

Recommended Posts

While you're probably right about the accents, this show might not totally suck. I like 9-1-1. It got a lot better in S2 when they replaced Connie Britton with Jennifer Love Hewitt. If the Austin spinoff is written as well as the original, it could be worth checking out.

Holy shit lol I just heard them talking about this on the World Series Game 2 intro. I was hoping for a spinoff of Reno 911.

Oh well, yeah, hope they don't butcher the accents too badly, & hopefully there are some good local shots. Anyone know if it's actually gonna be shot here?

Welp, me & my ff buddies just got a good laugh outta this shit. LMAO at an FDNY ff bringing his 'progressive' ff views to Austin to give us a hand. FDNY's firefighting is anything but progressive, and AFD is considered one of the most progressive FDs in the country, along with Phoenix and others.

Lowe stars as Owen Strand, the lone survivor of his Manhattan firehouse on 9/11, who had the unenviable task of rebuilding his station after the horrific attack. After a similar tragedy happens to a firehouse in Austin, TX, Owen, along with his troubled firefighter son, T.K. (Ronen Rubinstein), takes his progressive philosophies of life and firefighting down to Texas, where he helps them start anew.

Live Tyler huh? Ok.

 

And you're absolutely right about the accents...just listen at the very end to the "911, What your emergency" and the tangiest of tangy accents. Ugh.  But my wife and I do like the original show...so probably.

Episode Two will revolve around electric scooter injuries.

NYC guy: I’m here to teach you bumpkin right wing Austinites about progressive values in the Fire Department.   Now, watch and learn ... wait, it looks like we got a hobo taking a shit here and blocking our access to the fire hydrant.  Ok, I’m going to clear him out.

Austin FD: Hold on now, Mr. Big City.   By City of Austin ordinance, you are not allowed to displace this man.  We’re just going to have to let the fire burn until he passes out. 

NYC guy:  What now?  You mean you don’t use the hose on these people?  It will be good for him to have a bath, anyway.   I just ... I’m sorry, I don’t understand.  Are you saying we leave them alone because the mafia will take care of them?  Like, we won’t see them again and we don’t have to get our hands dirty?  Well, that’s cool.  But you gotta tell me who gives the kickbacks around here.  I’ll play ball - I’m not here to step on anyone’s action, but I just need to know.

Austin FD:  Sir, I don’t know how you do things in New York, but here in Austin we believe everyone deserves the basic human dignity of shitting in the street without judgment.   Please check your sanitation privilege before you ride with us again.

NYC guy:  Fuck it, you people are just too much of old fashioned right wing hicks to reason with.  Serves me right for trying to make a difference in Trump country!

What are the odds their hang out is a country bar where they line dance to Kenny Chesney to releive stress?

Did you not see the preview? That's exactly what they do. It may not have been Kenny Chesney, but they probably didn't want to offend Renee Zellweger. 

9 second mark.

"9-1-1, what's your emergency?"

We laugh, but we do get some calls every bit as ridiculous as those, even worse at times.

Just as good as Austin having multiple refinery fires every year.  Plus toss in some frequent water rescues that require multiple boats, helicopters, etc.

They have the flag upside down on the truck in the opening shot (:03).  OUT. 

They obviously got some feedback on that.  Shot was fixed in post-production.

Got an email today inviting me & my family to the pre-screening of the 1st two episodes (because FD). Here's a bit of it. Y'all are gonna love this shit...and by that, I mean it's gonna be a complete abortion.

Here's a write-up of the show if it's helpful:

9-1-1: LONE STAR

FOX's #1 drama, "9-1-1," expands its reach to the city of Austin, TX, with its first-ever new installment. 

Nearly 20 years ago, OWEN STRAND (Rob Lowe) was the lone survivor of his Manhattan firehouse on 9/11. In the wake of the attack, Owen had the unenviable task of rebuilding his station. After a similar tragedy happens to a firehouse in Austin, Owen, along with his troubled firefighter son, T.K. (Ronen Rubenstein), takes his progressive philosophies of life and firefighting down to Texas, where he helps them start anew. On the surface, Owen is all about big-city style and swagger, but underneath he struggles with a secret he hides from the world - one that could very well end his life. 

Once in Austin, Owen meets the brilliant and wry chief paramedic MICHELLE BLAKE (Liv Tyler), as well as police officer CARLOS REYES (Rafael Silva). He then begins to assemble his new team of diverse and qualified candidates for Firehouse 126, including MARJAN MARWANI (Natacha Karam), an adrenalin junkie and badass firefighter who also is a devout Muslim; PAUL STRICKLAND (Brian Michael Smith), a transgender male firefighter, who bravely decided to transition on the job in Chicago and has a gift for observation worthy of Sherlock Holmes; and rookie firefighter MATEO CHAVEZ (Julian Works).

Owen's toughest challenge may be JUDD RYDER (Jim Parrack), who, like Owen, was the sole survivor of the original 126 house after a rescue call ended in tragedy. A gruff cowboy to his core, Judd is married to GRACE (Sierra McClain), a 9-1-1 call center operator, and struggles with PTSD, unsure if he ever can be the firefighter he once was.

"9-1-1: LONE STAR" is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with Ryan Murphy Television and Brad Falchuk Teley-Vision.

Airs Mondays, 9-10pm ET/PT

Two-night series premiere Sunday, January 19, 8-9pm ET, LIVE to all time zones following the NFC Championship, and Monday, January 20, 9-10pm ET/PT
