Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
I’m so excited because tonight is the beginning of the deluge of new episodes with the start of the new fall TV season. Yay! And back tonight is one of last fall’s breakout hits, 9-1-1, on a special night before tomorrow’s follow-up episode in the time slot premiere. A lot of people were skeptical before the show first aired and even after the first episode – because let’s face it… The show is a little over-the-top and silly at times. I mean, during season one, we saw them rescue a newborn baby from a drainpipe in the wall, a woman with a giant snake wrapped around her neck, a kids’ bouncy house that flew away and was perched dangerously on a cliffside, and a good number more. And don’t forget Chimney and the rebar right through his head! That’s a sight that took a long time to get out of my head, I’ll tell ya!
There was also a lot of personal drama over the course of the season. (Spoilers ahead if you haven’t seen season 1!) Playboy/sex-obsessed Buck met and fell in love with 911 operator/older woman Abby, ending up alone when Abby took a leave of absence and decided to travel the world after her mother passed away. Cop Athena was dealing with her long-time spouse coming out as gay and her teenage daughter trying to commit suicide. Paramedic Henrietta cheated on her wife with her ex-girlfriend (ex-wife? I don’t remember), who was newly released from prison and is the other mother of her son. And if I remember right, the ex decided she was going to fight for custody. We learned fireman Bobby was injured years before on the job and became addicted to pain killers and alcohol, and that ended up getting his wife and kids as well as hundreds more people from their apartment complex killed when he accidentally set the building on fire by leaving on a space heater in the empty apartment where he went to be alone and use. He was never caught, and he still carries the guilt, but he’d been clean and sober since until he relapsed with alcohol after a bad call. At the end of the season, there seemed to be some sparks happening between Bobby and Athena, so that should be interesting… And then, of course, you can’t forget the rebar through Chimney’s head! Like…just above but right between his eyes! It was so freaky!
So that all leaves questions for the new season: 1) Abby’s still gone. How is Buck handling it? Is he back to his old ways? Alone and pining for her? 2) Is Henrietta’s ex still in the picture, and is there a custody battle going on? 3) How are things between Athena and Bobby? 4) How will new 911 operator Maddie (Buck’s sister!), played by the beautiful Jennifer Love Hewitt, fit in with the show? Will she be able to fill Abby’s shoes? 5) Will new firefighter/single dad Eddie work well in the new role? Will he be competing with Buck for “young, sexy guy,” and if so, how will Buck handle that? I can’t wait to find out!
On tonight’s premiere, “Under Pressure,” on one of the hottest days of the year, the first responders feel the pressure as harrowing incidents keep happening around the city. Meanwhile, Buck gets a surprise visit from his sister, Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt). Also, Athena questions her relationship with Bobby. Then, at the fire station, handsome new hire Eddie (Ryan Guzman) jeopardizes Buck’s chances of being chosen for a fireman calendar.
Don’t miss the start of another season of zany fun tonight on FOX at 8/7c.
