Y'all. As a child of a 911 dispatcher....it's all real. Ya goobers. ALSO as someone who has had to explain countless times to teachers, friends, parents, etc, what exactly a 911 dispatcher is, it's apparent no one truly understands what their role is and the capacity in which they do it. This show is AMAZING. It showcases the unseen day to day heroes that answer desperate calls for help, handle intense crimes in progress, or answer the dumbest questions you've ever heard. The show itself is well paced, there aren't any corny re-enactment scenes, it's well balanced with humor and intensity, and my boi Luke Wilson is a tad bit dramatic but THAT'S WHAT WE WANT IN A CRIME SHOW PEOPLE. YES, some of the incoming calls are re-recorded for IDK people's PRIVACY. Sorry that needs to be explained to some of you who weren't born with common sense. But not all of them are, and you are definitely seeing the dispatchers answer the calls in real time. They kind of have to remain calm and level headed at all times, so no, it's not acting, it's the JOB. Besides, half the fun is trying to figure out the real emotion from re-recorded actor emotion. 10/10 would recommend Netflix to pick this up bc I want it to stick around. And god knows no one (with common sense) watches live TV anymore.
