I find myself emotionally touched by each episode, in one way or another. That's what hooked me. The acting is hit and miss, with those who portray Chim, Hen, Buck, Maddie, Bobby and Maddie being the best. I do NOT like Angela Basset in this role.... she comes off almost like Maleficent! I agree with the comments about agendas. I quit watching 2 of my absolute favorite shows ever, due to political agendas. I watch TV to be entertained, not brainwashed. I also agree that there are too many personal discussions during the crisis scenes...ridiculous! What keeps me watching are the stories that touch my heart and that I feel the show is (so far) written to be accepting of all. Just stop forcing so much political crap down our throats, please!

This show is ok. I like that they are giving fire fighters some love, they need to be honored just like the police officers do. If I could do it differently, I would make the show in the style of Law and Order. Like focus on three different cases and make them more realistic. They could do a wild fire, since the west tends to get them a lot.

Find it hard to enjoy when things like a persons foot is lodged in-between the cement in a main intersection and the two responders stop trying to remove her foot and engage in personal conversation while this person is stuck . This is just one of many incidents that take place that make this show so unbelievable. Really how does this get renewed. If I was a supervisor at this scene watching the two responders not showing any effort to remove the person They would be fired on the spot. MKL@ML would rate this show a ZERO. Like the cast members but the show is bad.

I gave the first episode 10 minutes and I saw a disaster in progress. Despite my low expectations for rationality, I’m surprised it’s still going.
JP - I wonder if they started the show with a gay romance and that sealed the deal for me? I used to be unaffected by gay affairs in tv and film (unless it’s the main storyline which is always a turnoff for me) but since they’re now part of a seemingly majority of new shows, they nearly always give a contrived agenda feel - because that’s what is is - an agenda which undermines good will. I think agenda-driven tv is destructive, even to the causes being promoted. Gay relationships in tv are wrecked by the excessive patronage of them.
We need a warning rating system to alert us that programs are agenda-driven, and whatever the (real or apparent) agenda is, it should be included in the warning. Of course, radicals will control the warning/rating, so it has zero chance of success - meaning it will happen.

I have enjoyed all 10 episodes of this show and am glad it has been renewed. I look forward to Season 2 and hope it has more than just 10 episodes!

This show really went above and beyond in checking the LGBT box. I mean, what other show on TV has 3 gay couples like this one does!?! It's a bit much wouldn't you agree? I guess maybe the gayness is used to cover up the otherwise boring story lines and the generally bad acting.

Just saw online that it is renewed for a 2nd season.

Just finished pilot episode. Love it. Good moving drama with people with real lives and stories to be told.
