    VERY action packed, likeable characters... love it love it!! Chicago Fire has unexpected twists, and shows diversity from other Emergency TV shows. Showing all aspects of a fire house, from captain to candidate.

    Love it! Likeable characters, lots of action, beautiful people and great acting! Seriously underrated, it's got some familiar faces and has some great new ones too. I like it because it's actually a bit different, I've not watched a series like this before. Very good, highly recommend.

    Very good show that reminds me of Emergency! from the 1970s but with a little more drama. Also, this show crosses over with Chicago Fire which makes both shows a little more interesting.

    I love Chicago fire because it's an emotionally compelling show that has some sad moments and great characters. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes shows with a sad touch to them.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Chicago Fire is one of the best series I saw in my life, I saw work in House MD Jesse Spencer, and I realized he's a good actor, the series is recommended, I would like to have more reputation! Expand

    Chicago Fire is the best show on TV now. Chicago PD is second best. the dam critics will praise junk trash shows like 2 and a half men but put great shows like Chicago Fire and Chicago PD down. a bunch of idiiot's . they finally get a good show on and they have these kind of people that want to get it off the air. this is really the best!!!!

    There are rivalries and feuds and dangerous situations, as well as a complete lack of personality. [29 Oct 2012, p.38]

    There didn't seem to be anything like [a plot] for the first two episodes, though there has been no lack of good looks, with Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer around and filling out their firemen togs nicely. Still there's hope. In episode three, to be exact, where we find a hint that the writers have caught on to the uses of a story line, this about a corrupt police detective.

    There's no character you haven't seen before. More importantly, there's no character that hasn't been done much, much better elsewhere.
