TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 13 May 2015
Season 1 was great. Season 2 is even better. As before, each day sees call-outs to fires (some spectacular), horrendous traffic accidents, rescue of people in danger (one or two gruesomely trapped in machinery). As though this is not enough, crew members are targeted by an arsonist. Worst of all, a senior official with a secret agenda earmarks Firehouse 51 for imminent closure....

(Unexpectedly women firefighters become an issue - this an innovation explored over twenty five years ago in "LONDON'S BURNING".)

Scripts remain taut, performances excellent. Result? Most viewers care what happens to characters they have grown to like. Humorous moments are doubly appreciated with so much drama around. Again there are heartrending storylines. Prepare for real shocks - including a devastating cliffhanger which means Season 3 cannot come too soon.

22 episodes (23 really, for Ep.21 is a two parter - firefighters dealing with a bomb blast; police trying to track down the perpetrators.)

Bonuses include brief background features on most episodes. Very welcome is the pilot of "CHICAGO P.D." - this so exciting, orders will probably at once be placed.

Any call-out may prove their last. At such times, whatever their differences, colleagues unite to support. In Episode 1 Season 1, one of their number died tragically in a blaze. Viewers only saw him a few seconds, but he meant much to his mates - they now trying to ensure all goes well for his widow and children. The community spirit comes over most movingly and is one of the series' greatest strengths.

All the way through there is thus much to admire.

Waited patiently for this (season 2) to be released and wasn't disappointed... If only they could live down the street from me I would gladly cook for them.
The cliff-hangers in the series were very gripping ... so much so that I couldn't turn it off.
Looking forward to replaying this over and over again!
Definitely would recommend to anyone.. Another brilliant series from over the pond.

She loved Chicago Fire Season 1 so Season 2 seemed to the obvious choice. Not one of these 10 - 13 episode series but a good comprehensive series with many hours of enjoyment to be had.

This is the second time I've ordered and yet again disk five does not work! Don't order this box set as they send it faulty and yet again I've gotta try and get another refund. Not happy at all.
