Stick With it For Surprising Chicago Crime Fighters!
24 August 2018
Well, We're up to Season 3, but boy I didn't think I'd finish Season 1 after the early chaos and boredom of the first couple episodes - I'd say skip 'em, but you need to watch them to understand the back stories - just belive this is not going to be a run of the mill Cop Show and that CHICAGO will have its day on screen - eventually... I mean, I lived there for 6-years so know it, I was there when you drove thru' Cabrini Green in body armour, yet used to cycle the northern lake shore to downtown on weekends and pray I wouldn't get mowed down by in-line skaters! It's a city full of amazing dichotomies which any film producer/maker should be using to the max - there's no need to film scenes out of town, (LA!) Chicago should be the STAR - Jason Beghe is mesmerising - it was disconcerting to watch him one night in NYPD Blue, '95 (One Big Happy Family)! - Elias Koteas and Chicago-actress Amy Morton add needed depth and be prepared for at least one Jump-out-of-your-Skin moment per show!
