A great opener for 9-1-1, they do not disappoint and they start the season off with one great disaster, a tidal wave. So far there is no reason for it and we will have to wait on episode 2 to find out why. It was funny and sad and just a feel good show. The cast has great chemistry and the show is really coming into its own. I feel the show is getting better with each episode that airs. So how will the 9-1-1 team fair after this next huge disaster that rocks LA?
