I did a search, here, on the forums and did not find a listing for Chicago Fire. So, if I'm repeating an existing thread, please feel free to delete. Anyway-the reason for my posting is to state my opinion of this show. Up until last year, I had lived/worked in Chicago for 35 years. This show has great location shooting. And, I feel the casting of the crew and the writing to be pretty good. After watching all the aired episodes, I feel really drawn to this show. I really don't have any nits to pick about it. How does anybody else feel about this show? Any comments about any aspect of it?

Glad I'm not alone! I too have become drawn to that show and its characters. I'm glad that Severide finally decided to ditch the drugs and have his shoulder surgery.

There have been several comments regarding Chicago Fire, but apparently no real thread was started so thank you for that. It is a quality show and one that I look forward to watching every week. The cast is good and they mesh well together. The storylines have been well-written and I hope NBC keeps up the good work. They have been on the bottom of the heap for so long, I'm glad to see them having at least a few successes.

I watched the first episode back in the fall and thought, "eh...a little too soapy for me." But I didn't remove it from the season pass list. Over Thanksgiving week, I noticed I had 5 or 6 episodes recorded, so I thought I'd burn through them in a marathon. By the third one, it really had me looking forward to the next one. Good series.

I've been watching since the first episode but forgot to search for a thread. The wife and I look forward to it every week and have grown to like the various characters who's backstory we've seen.

We also liked "Trauma", another NBC casualty. So, sarcastically, I fully expect NBC to can this in the coming weeks (something I know all/most AVS members know full well about!)

In our house, I joke that NBC stands for:

Now
Being
Canceled

Yep, I enjoy every episode as well. But, I think I missed one and have to recheck, as the last one I watched had the Chief back, after he walked out, with no explanation as to how he returned.

"How Long have I been gone?" Alexis after arriving home and seeing Castle and Beckett w/ the baby - Castle - 11/25/13

Or how quick Severide recovered from the surgery... I thought he took the less risky one...

He took the riskier surgery, but ya, the recovery time interval was really short as well. Those four weeks went by real fast.

So, I'm assuming that was Sarah Shahi's swan song from Chicago Fire last night, tying up "loose ends" for her full transition to Person of Interest?

Indeed, she looks way better being a badarse than a "mom" if you ask me.. Also Main Cast Member>>>>>>Guest star on some other show

As soon as they suspected another firefighter being the arsonist I thought of that guy Severide visited

I never made the connection between the two characters. The appearance is so different and the actress dresses up so nicely on Chicago Fire as opposed to the scruffy assassin in POI. Maybe had she threatened to shoot Severide it would have triggered recognition for me. The POI character is a hoot and the highest and best use of her talents, I think.

There's SO MUCH "Actor Recycling" going on these days that a 'Senior Citizen' like myself often has a predisposed character in mind, based on the actor and not based on WHICH show I'm currently watching... confused.giffrown.gif

And, I'm not referring to different shows in DIFFERENT seasons - I'm referring to major roles in different shows in the SAME season! eek.gifbiggrin.gif

Any comments on last night's finale? I thought it was pretty good. Although, at the end (when the ENTIRE squad walked into the building), I knew the building was going to explode. I still really like this show and PD. Looking forward to the new shows this fall.

My thought after the explosion was somebody has to be dead.
Great leverage for NBC with contract negotiations for next season.
Virtually no one is safe except for the Chief.
