    Yeah. there's enough serious out there. There's the whole Chicago series (I can't get enough Chicago Fire). But I enjoy 9-1-1 as well to provide lighter fare. Especially as a Monday pick-me-up.

    Are they purposefully making Rob Lowe look older or more "weathered" or is the man finally starting to show his age? I thought he was immune to such things! :p

    FYP :p

    I'll watch for a bit longer. For me, these shows are more about the interactions between characters than about the actual plots.

    Crazy, it seemed right on the money for a NY apartment, but they seemed shocked and I wasn't sure if because high or low. I guess shock for what they are getting, the house as a rental instead of a small apartment.

    I think they were shocked at what they got for that kind of money. The next couple of lines pretty much explained their reaction when that same amount barely got them a studio apartment. Living in a place with sky high real estate, I sort of know.

    (Studio apartments are typically around 400-800 square feet in an open plan.)

    Although, at $4500/month, I wonder if a mortgage payment would be cheaper for a place like that.

    I enjoyed it. Found it on par with the other 9-1-1. Plus Liv Tyler.

    They went a bit overboard on the “PC” nature of the house. I also found it interesting he had to rebuild, but just one shift.

    That was intentional. They specifically mentioned it when he was being hired. But yeah, the "one of each" is a bit much. It's like someone had a checklist to fill.

    Very similar to the original 9-1-1.

    How so? The original show's firehouse was comprised of locals, or people who came to the city and then joined the LAFD. In the new show, the captain went out of his way to actively recruit non-white/-heterosexual/-Christian firefighters from around the country.

    For some reason, I kept thinking of the movies Major League and The Replacements.

    1) Where is there a corn silo within 10 minutes of the Congress Avenue bridge?
    B) Speaking of corn silos, the "Not Southern California" mountains finally made an appearance in the background in that scene.

    Against the consensus here, I've never liked Liv Tyler, and this show isn't changing my mind.

    I have always found her annoying myself. She's attractive but I don't think she's a great actress.

    We just had someone die in a corn silo in a neighboring town on January 8th. Our local department assisted in the recovery.

    They didn’t cut a hole in the silo

    I've always liked Liv but her now in her 40s, not as "cute" as she used to be. I don't know if the change is age related or weight gain; but she still has those bedroom eyes. :rolleyes:

    Maybe if they should have! :p

    I also liked the well behaved hole that did not explode out until they had finished cutting it and stepped back. The silo knew to hold it in until then!

    So three years she's been harassing this guy and one neighbor says her sister got into a truck that night and she's hugging him. That's a quick turn around haha.

    I don't think this is quality TV but I'll watch anything with Lowe and there's a lot of eye candy in general so .......... :D
