    Chicago Fire definitely has familiarity going for it and familiarity going against it as well.

Trying to be the ER of the CFD.....it just doesn't make it. The characters and the plots are interesting enough, but the execution is lacking. Trying to build dramatic incidents is becoming tedious. For some reason, the Chicago Police department is lacking and extremely slow to respond. There have been major fires, accidents, train wrecks and shootings in Chicago, and for some reason, the first responders on this show are always the firemen.......go figure. Full Review »
