Advertisements Premiered last night on Fox, a spin-off of 9-1-1. Stars Rob Lowe and Liv Tyler, set in Austin. From wiki: Set in Texas, 9-1-1: Lone Star will star Rob Lowe as a sophisticated New York firefighter who, along with his son, relocates to Austin. There, he must try to balance saving those who are at their most vulnerable with solving the problems in his own life. So what did everyone think? I watched the first half dozen 9-1-1 episodes before I gave up. And wouldn't have watched this at all, except... well, "Lone Star". I found it cliche-ridden to the point of exhaustion. I'll watch a couple more, because... well, "Lone Star". But unless it suddenly turns 180 degrees, I can't see myself sticking with it. I'm sure there are many who enjoy this type of show (hey, I never missed an episode of 2 Broke Girls, so who am I to criticize), but it's not for me. It started on the wrong foot when the transition scene showed them driving thru desert/western scrub on their way to Austin from NYC. Unless they detoured via West Texas, the NYC/eastern side of Texas to Austin is green. It turns scrub when you get west of the San Antonio/Austin/Dallas line. One of those details that no one cares about, and helps set the scene, but drives my cliche/trope meter off the scale. Also loved the accent of the little girl who brought cookies. Even with my hearing, it sounded like someone who learned a Texas accent from watching Gone With the Wind. And the firehouse that responded to the call in the opening scene, they didn't know it was "sometimes used to store fertilizer". And the closing scene, where they're racing to the statehouse (downtown Austin)... how does a station cover both downtown and fertilizer plants. Aren't they like miles apart? Oh well. But hey... "Lone Star".
