Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? Weâ€™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 youâ€™re choosing for tonight!
My pick tonight is the series premiere of 9-1-1 on FOX. This new procedural stars Connie Britton (Friday Night Lights, Nashville), Peter Krause (The Catch, Six Feet Under), Angela Bassett (American Horror Story, Whatâ€™s Love Got to Do with It), Kenneth Choi (American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson), Aisha Hinds (Shots Fire, Underground), Oliver Stark (Into the Badlands), & Rockmund Dunbar (Prison Break, The Path), so itâ€™s quite a strong cast.
This isnâ€™t a normal procedural, though. First, it comes from Ryan Murphy (Glee, Scream Queens) and Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story, Glee), so not names youâ€™d normally see when attached to a procedural. Second, most procedurals have a major â€œA storyâ€ that is the meat of the episode. Take Chicago Fire, for example. Whatever big call they have is usually involved in the A story, and they usually only have one big call per episode. But in this case, at least in the pilot, which Iâ€™ve seen, there are a handful of calls for the firefighters, paramedics, & cops. Each call gets a smaller, quicker focus, rather than taking one and fleshing it out to fill the episode. It was a rather fun take, in my opinion. Also, we get another view of first responders, in Connie Brittonâ€™s 911 operator. Thatâ€™s a point of view weâ€™re not used to seeing.
I read a review yesterday that wasnâ€™t very positive, but frankly, I quite enjoyed the pilot. I liked the way they handle the quick calls and how much we see (without getting too detailed or involved) into the charactersâ€™ personal lives. Hopefully everyone will give it a chance and we see them settling in and getting more comfortable in their roles.
On tonightâ€™s episode, â€œPilot,â€ emergency response providers put their lives at risk to save others, from a possible baby in the walls to a young girl home alone when intruders break in and more.
Donâ€™t miss tonightâ€™s premiere on FOX at 9/8c.
Iâ€™ll also be watching/DVRing The Amazing Race, The Goldbergs, The Librarians, Iron Chef Showdown, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Property Brothers, SEAL Team, American Housewife, Chicago PD, Criminal Minds, & Match Game.
