A group of firefighters risk their lives and hearts.
By Digital Dude
As a former professional firefighter/engineer I was embarrassed for the members of the Seattle Fire Department. Then again, since they did not work out an agreement to have a technical representative present during the filming, it's their own fault that they portrayed firefighters as a bunch of stupid idiotic morons. As for the acting; one has to wonder what the heck the producer was thinking. I've seen better acting in German soap operas.
This is worth the watch!
I wanted to like it...
I started the pilot with the best hopes. To me this show fell very short. The main character comes across as whiny, untrustworthy and the acting seemed forced. After 20 minutes in, I couldn't watch anymore.
I never leave bad reviews, that should tell you how much I did not like that show.

I have been in Public Safety my entire adult life and even though I’m not a big fan of firefighters, I’m embarrassed for them. I understand that realism suffers in medical, police, fire shows but wow. This is way worse than the new show 9-1-1 is. Way worse.
I think the consultant either never set foot in a paid fire house and/or just read a comic book about fire departments. The writers obviously did zero research.
You do not get a promotion to lieutenant because the captain wants to. It’s called civil service exams. Then school for the new rank and then you are assigned to a different house.
I already lost over an hour of my life to this joke of a show, I’m not wasting more on a review that the show won’t use to help improve it.
I don’t remember the actors name who plays Ben Warren but run and beg them to let you back on grays anatomy!
Firehouse romance, unbelievable characters, unlikely nepotism, a surgeon-turned-fireman. This tie-in to Gray's Anatomy is just too much of a stretch. And, of course, there is the expectation that popular characters will be killed off in unlikely ways. This is a Shondra show.
Shonda did good.
The show keeps you guessing and asking questions. I’m always at the edge of my seat. Truly amazing, I see the potential.
Swing and miss
Why not first episode for free?

It makes no sense that new shows don't offer the first episode of the first season for free... $3 is quite an investment to just see if I like it, and the hesitation often makes me look for the show on another platform. On iTunes, the first episode of the very first season should be a standard free item.
