66%

#67
Adjusted Score: 67630%

9-1-1: Season 1 (2018)
70%

#57
Adjusted Score: 71711%
Critics Consensus: 9-1-1 occasionally veers into melodrama, but is redeemed with a top-tier cast, adrenaline-pumping action, and a dash of trashy camp that pushes the show into addictive guilty pleasure territory.
