    The overall feel is of skilled vets taking a break to play around, tossing out ideas for barroom jams and wild mash-ups and then daring themselves to bring them to life.

    Great Chicago Fire is that rare collaboration where both sides seem to inform one another equally and derive new strengths from teaming up.
