New 9-1-1 show from Texas.

We all have our opinions but the worst fire department based show has to be the new one on Fox. Beginning has NYFD tags, E-252 with white company fronts/shields. The main character goes to TX to help restore a house that lost several members in an incident and the house was shut down. And it just gets worse from there. Watch anything else besides this.
FAC 20 TASS 68-69 SVN. Hue/PhuBai , Boston Spark from 71-79, Chicago 79-15, Bloomington/Normal 2015- present

Personally, I can't think of any TV show (drama, not documentary) about FDNY that was even decent, let alone good. I gave up even watching the premier whenever a new show pops up.

Personally I think Rescue Me was pretty good! And younger me liked Third Watch

As a proud, second generation, retired  FDNY Fireman, I don't appreciate Hollywood going out of their way to make the brothers look foolish.

 Anybody that has "any idea" of the REAL JOB of a Firefighter doesn't much appreciate the Hollywood view of life in the firehouse and the reality of what the job is all about.

 There are many documentaries that have told the REAL STORY of Firefighting and certainly the FDNY. Those in the stories are REAL FIREFIGHTERs - "NOT" ACTORS.

 I hope that the viewing public DOESN'T think that Hollywood actors, TV cameras, and make believe fire, is what the job of firefighting is all about.

 REAL FIREFIGHTERs who fight fires and save lives often get hurt doing so. Sometimes seriously and sometimes even worse. Their families and loved ones worry about them whenever they are doing that job, as there are NO PROMISES made of going home at the end of the shift.

 9-1-1 was the WORST DAY in the history of Firefighting. So many 9-1-1 Firefighters are suffering every day of their lives as a result of that. As most of us know, many families continue to pay the ultimate price for that TERRIBLE DAY.

 How can ANY Television Show actually try to make some kind of TV entertainment from such a TERRIBLE Event in our history. Particularly the history of the FDNY.

I attempted to watch some of the show, quickly turned it off, but it does appear as the Austin Chief comes to talk to Rob Lowe the “house” they are in was across the street from 4/15. It appears that’s the only real FDNY thing in the show.

Sitting in a barroom, one of the TV's, with sound off, showed it.  Just as well, I couldn't figure the Texas patches, Austin FD notations, shirts with NYFD identity unlike anything real, and the white fronts with the red 252's.  Well it is fiction.
