Re: 9-1-1 (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/23/18

Been watching the show since the first episode. Now, not sure if I'm reading too much into things, but... is anyone else getting a vibe that the show turn the Buck/Eddie bromance into an actual romance? I don't think Buck is gay, but, given his situation with Abby, maybe he finds himself drawn to Eddie and gets curious. When they showed a scene of Buck and Eddie with Eddie's son, I thought, "The kid's gonna have two dads." lol And just look how Buck got hold of the nurse for Abby's mother, for Eddie and his son.

Was Buck's sister's "joke" about Buck's boy crush foreshadowing? Were those girls at the scene of the tail-pipe incident really not Eddie's type, or was that foreshadowing of his sexuality? There's also backstory we have yet to learn about the mother of Eddie's son.

The show has a main character who is a lesbian, so maybe it's time for a male (Athena's husband is a supporting character, so he doesn't really count). And it is a Ryan Murphy show, so...

Thoughts?

Exceedingly unlikely. I have not gotten that vibe at all, though it does seem to want to push unusual matchups so you never know.

Re: 9-1-1 (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/23/18

Just got caught up with the last 2 episodes.

The last one with the crew getting spiked with LSD in the brownies was very funny.

That red head reporter, who was covering the team, was gorgeous. Really surprised that she and Buck didn't hook up. But, he still seem to think that Abby is coming back and has some loyalty to her.

and I think Jennifer Love Hewitt has been a solid addition to the show. I'm sure at some point they're going to bring in her ex to cause some trouble.

The thing I find most entertaining is how way over the top the emergencies. Sure, it's not realistic at all and some of you may groan at how ridiculous they are. But, I kind of like how this show sometimes doesn't take itself too seriously in spots. The dude who ate too many crickets being one of them.


and I'm glad they didn't go into a huge custody fight with Henrietta, her partner, their kid and the biological father.

This was the first episode of the show I've watched. I've avoided it because that last show Peter Krause was in was cringe worthy. Gave it a shot and it's pretty good. I added a season pass. JLH certainly doesn't hurt.

Going into this episode, I kept thinking they're probably going to have JLH's ex appear and that it would be the very last thing in the episode. Sure enough...

Probably not that hard to predict though since it seems like something a show like this would do in its mid-season finale.

Re: 9-1-1 (FOX) -- Season 2 Thread -- Premieres 9/23/18

Just chiming in on this thread. I dismissed this show when season 1 was on. Heard some positive rumblings (here and elsewhere) and eventually gave it a try. Binged the season in a week. I haven't started on S2 yet, but this show is fun to watch. Crisis of the week, some soap opera elements thrown in for good measure. As stated, a nice blend of over-the-top antics and backstory thrown in.

Reminds me of Six Feet Under (i.e., death of the week) and in some indirect way, CSI. Regardless, it's a fun show and I'm looking forward to catching up on S2 over the holiday season.

This show has always had some unbelievable situations but this week's was over the top. I mean, c'mon, someone renting a movie in a video store? Who does this?

Yes Los Angeles. And video stores died here a few years ago.

Oh, what was up with the weird tree salesman guy who later showed up in the video store? I thought they were hinting that he wasn't really there at first, but he did pay for the video. I think his character name was Jason Bailey and figured it was a reference to It's a Wonderful Life.

Did you miss the final minutes?

Spoiler:
He was Maddie’s ex stalking her and targeting Chim.

OK...sorry, I completely missed that it was the same guy. So he wasn't actually working at the Christmas tree lot?

No, he wasn’t. He was more than likely watching Maddie at home and saw Chim. So instead of focusing on her immediately, he turned his attention to Chim. Classic abuser behavior too by lifting Chim’s wallet at the video store
so Chim thinks he misplaced it and the ex is the saviour for him.

Yeah the minute dude bumped into Chin at the video store I was thinking "that's the ex." it was way too much of a creepy coincidence.

Though it didn't come up in this thread, last week's Hen-focused episode was awesome. She's my hero.

Getting caught up with this and just watched the Henrietta back story episode from 2 weeks ago.

That was an excellent episode. Kudos to whoever wrote it. I like the Henrietta character and it really gave some good insight into her struggles and desire to become part of the LAFD.

Finally caught up to the Midseason finale.

Not surprised the ex came back in the picture for the cliffhanger. It was just a matter of when. That guy who plays the ex was also on J-Love's show The Client List. He played her husband IIRC and is actually her real life husband.

Long break (3+ months) to show just 6 more episodes.

I feel so bad for Kenneth Choi's character: I swear he is the red shirt of the series, everything bad happens to him.

This season has been kinda slow with all the character backstory. It's enjoyable enough to keep watching for now.

I have no emotional interest in any of these characters, it is mind numbingly stupid yet I am entertained.
