[ # ] 9-1-1 is back saving lives, Prodigal Son tries to stop murders
September 23rd, 2019 under Fox, Ryan Murphy


Fox is ready for a new season and they are starting it off with 9-1-1. The episode starts with a car being chased by police. Maddie (Jennifer Love Hewitt) gets a phone call from the guy being chased and he has a good reason for not being able to stop. He can’t. The brakes are not working. Now, everyone has to figure a way to get him to stop the car and get out of it alive. I recently saw an old telemovie about this just scenario because it has actually happened.

That is what Ryan Murphy does. He brings real-life scenarios to his show and gives it his spin of things. Sometimes I wish he didn’t because I still have not been able to use my car wash that was featured on one of his episodes and my car is really dirty.

Back to the show, it takes place months after the season finale and Buck (Oliver Stark) is finally ready to get back to work. That is if he can pass the test. While he waits, he takes Eddie’s (Ryan Guzman) son to the Santa Monica Pier for a nice day out. That is until a tsunami ruins their day. Well, maybe not everything is ripped from the headlines.

Oh and did I mention that LAFD Station 118 go to a nursing home to check out an elderly man who has an unusual STD! Let’s just say we are all going to have the sex talk with older family members after tonight. Condoms prevent more than pregnancy.

I always forget how much I miss 9-1-1 until it is back. And it is back baby.


Then at 9p, it is time for Prodigal Son. When Malcolm Bright (Tom Payne) was a little boy, his father was arrested for being a serial killer. Ever since then he wants to distance himself from his dad. However, he has become an FBI profiler. When they fire him, Gil Arroyo (Lou Diamond Phillips) from the NYPD hires him to work for them.

The first case is a copycat of his dad’s murders. What better source of information than his father. Thus, he goes to his dad for help. Which might not be a good idea because Dr. Martin Whitly (Michael Sheen) gets into his head. That makes him go even deeper into his profiling.

His mother Jessica Whitly (Bellamy Young) and sister Ainsley Whitly (Halston Sage) are going to try to stop him from talking to his father. However, he can’t even he wanted to. His dad knows has his number and he is not going to stop calling.

The more he deals with his dad, the more he remembers his childhood. He starts to remember things that he locked away which will make him question if the people around him knew more than they told him and how much more.

As he is going through all of this, he still has to deal with his job. Getting into the minds of serial killers. Each week, he will solve the modern-day murders as the ones from his past come back to haunt him in this dark thrilling drama.
