    The writing and story lines on this show are P.. Poor. We'll give it one more try, but I'm guessing it will be coming out of one pass. My wife and I enjoyed Lowe in Wild Bill - too bad that was cancelled after one season.

    I also loved The Grinder and was mad they canceled it too. :)

    I would much rather be watching The Grinder than this.

    Living in Texas, so much just seems over the top and wrong... I wonder if people who live in CA feel that way about the original 9-1-1 show.

    I did think this episode was slightly better than the previous two - so we'll watch again.

    It's not just 9-1-1, but any show set in the Los Angeles basin.

    I'm from Texas and lived in Austin for 5 years.

    9-1-1 Lone Star is set in Austin, but filmed in Los Angeles. I've already had a few "I've been there" moments on Lone Star for both the Austin establishing shots and scenes filmed in LA.

    Last I read, Lone Star is only 10 episodes, with no word yet on its chances for any further pickups.

    A 1.0 demo rating for the most recent episode is pretty darn good, especially in the Monday at 8 hour. Pretty good chance at S2.

    I'm still fairly well enjoying the show. Just watched the most recent episode yesterday. I know Liv Tyler is popular here, but something about her has always bugged me. I don't quite know what it is, but it's probably something superficial. Plus, I don't find her acting to be at all interesting. It kind of seems like all characters she plays are the same for me. I don't find her attractive, either.

    I like the variety of characters. I also wonder why the show wouldn't be filmed in Austin. There could be many reasons, I suppose, but it's kind of weird when a show is supposed to take place in one place (accessible to earthlings), yet it's filmed in an entirely different place nowhere near. One good thing about filming is that it brings a lot of money to the area where the filming takes place.

    Actors like Rob Lowe at times can have pull; along with crew considerations. Just like the new Edie Falco network series "Tommy," taking place in L.A. and being shot in NY, complete with trucked-around palm trees.

    One of the 9-1-1 Lone Star was just hauled past my neighborhood on a flat-bed semi earlier this evening. A pumper truck, not the ladder truck.

    They mispronounced Mopac. I wonder if they'll ask someone before they try pronouncing Manchaca St. (err, now it's Menchaca)

    And I'm actually embarrassed I guessed the safe code about the same time girlfriend started searching the desk.

    I was shocked they tried the MMDD of the birth dates, but not the years.

    Two thoughts on tonight's episode:
    1. They went right to a huge disaster on episode 4? What are they going to do for the season finale, have Texas swallowed up by an earthquake?
    2. Do people really use such guessable passwords for things? It seems to me that the ones they tried are barely better than no password at all.
      If the year "2015" (or whatever) was such a big thing for the guy, then what about taking that and subtracting out the jersey number of the player or something? It seems like the dad would easily be able to remember the formula without it being so easy that a burglar could guess it...

    Yes. One analysis indicated 11% of pins are 1234, and 6% are 1111. The top 20 make up 27% of pins. Another indicated that guessing PINs based on the victims' birthday, which nearly all users carry documentation of, will enable a competent thief to gain use of an ATM card once for every 11-18 stolen wallets...

    If you are trying to prevent someone who breaks into your house from getting into your safe, a birthday would probably be reasonably hard (most thieves are not going to be going through paperwork to find possible combinations). But it you want real security, you would not do it. Except people do it anyway.

    I thought about this while watching as well. My guess, with the showing being as cheesy/cliche as it is, they will end the season with a similar situation to how Judd lost his crew, only this time they manage to all make it out alive. End season with celebratory dinner in the firehouse.

    I don't know about classifying tornadoes as "major disaster." Sure, they're a bit spread out, but they do happen on a regular basis in "Tornado Alley". There's a reason why every municipality in the area has a tornado siren.

    If it's anything like the parent show, it will probably end on a cliffhanger.

    Natalie Zea has the best agent ever. First Olyphant and now Lowe. :cool:
