On the surface Fox’s new procedural 9-1-1 looks pretty similar to other shows of its kind. Upon further investigation, however, it seems the network and series creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear have put together something amazing. This new drama about the professional and personal lives of first responders -- specifically the LAPD, LAFD, paramedics and the 9-1-1 hotline operators who dispatch them -- found its legs pretty damn quickly, and it’s got three great leads, an amazing supporting cast and some solid writing to thank for that fact. Not a bad way to start off the New Year.
