Fox's 9-1-1: Lone Star had the makings of a very promising show. Rob Lowe plays a New York City fire chief, who survived the Twin Towers, and moves to Texas nearly 20 years later to give his son a better life.
One would think the show would support traditional conservative values, including patriotism, respect and family. However, the show seems to cling to a progressive agenda.
Lowe plays fire chief Owen Strand, who moves to Texas to head a fire department that lost nearly everyone in an explosion. Strand wants to shake up the department and hires diverse people to fill out his crew. The hires include Strand's homosexual son, T.K.; a transgender person; and a Muslim woman.
In episode one, Strand's son, T.K., played by Ronen Rubinstein, proposes to his boyfriend. When the boyfriend rejects T.K., T.K. overdoses on drugs. By the second episode, T.K. is hooking up with a male paramedic in Texas.
In episode two, the writers take further shots at conservatives by mocking an elderly lady who calls the police to report her neighbors for "setting a fire." The call is a false alarm, and the lady is made fun of for being racist and homophobic.
Also in episode two, the lead paramedic, Michelle Blake—played by Liv Tyler—turns to witchcraft to find her sister, who disappeared after an alleged domestic violence incident.
