    In a world without cable dramas, Chicago Fire would be considered television at its more compelling and realistic. As it is, it walks the line between shameless entertainment--hot guys, hot girls, the fires within, the fires without--and intelligent storytelling.

    Wolf is not about to break any new ground here. He's just creating the kind of TV that people watch.

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

    Rote but entertaining, Chicago Fire can't be ruled out as perhaps one of NBC's best chances for a hit.

    This seems like a serviceable drama that merits a bit better ladder grade (heh-heh) for an improved second hour.

    The cast has a lot of personality an they flow together to make it a compelling show to watch.
    A show that zoom in and shows the team acting
    The cast has a lot of personality an they flow together to make it a compelling show to watch.
    A show that zoom in and shows the team acting like a team..Fighting fires..Its not about one person being the hero all the time. There is so much room to grow with this show.
