Chicago Fire (S05E22):”My Miracle”

Wow. Just wow. This season finale feels far from a “finale,” as Chihards (Chicago fans) prepare to wait for the next season – morning the possible deaths of a handful of 51 firemen. To be completely honest, it is really hard for me to fathom more than one person dying since half of the cast of…

NBC Fall 2017-2018 Schedule

Chicago Fire (S05E19) “Carry Their Legacy”

I’m not going to lie, I was a little let down with the intensity of this episode. The commercials made me think something catastrophic was going to happen to one of the main characters. I don’t mean to undermine the tragedy in this episode because it certainly was sad, but it wasn’t as epic a…

Chicago Fire (S05E18): “Take A Knee”

“Take A Knee” presented a handful of interesting storylines, but a few fell short. “Take A Knee” packed so much into an hour, it was wonderful to watch but also felt much longer than an hour. Herrmann and his son’s decision to not stand for the pledge of allegiance at school posed a difficult teaching moment for…

Chicago Fire (S05E17): “Babies and Fools”

hat”Babies and Fools” focused much more on the characters rather than accidents and fires. Dawson takes it upon herself to discover the mysteries behind her first call of the day, in which a baby was found in a storm sewer. This investigation puts her life at risk when the suspect fakes an emergency and throws…

Chicago Fire (S05E16): “Telling Her Goodbye”

Because I did not see any commercials for Chicago Fire‘s episode last night, I was totally not expecting the slightly out of character episode that was “Telling Her Goodbye.” Firehouse 51 is taken hostage by a group of “thugs,” one of whom is shot. As the episode unfolds, many complications and side plots arise. Kidd and…

Chicago Fire (S05E15): “Deathtrap”

Chicago Fire kicked off last night’s #OneChicago television event with a bang-literally. The very first scene felt more like a movie than a regular episode, which only made me more excited for the following three hours of TV. As rescue scenes go, this episode was very intense, especially when a Chicago PD Intelligence team member’s…

Chicago Fire (S05E14): “Purgatory”

I loved this episode of Chicago Fire. Sending Firehouse 51 across the city to a plethora of different jobs and firehouses gave both the characters and viewers a strong reminder about why we love 51. The majority of the episode focused on the characters’ development in their new work environments, rather than the actually emergencies….

Chicago Fire (S05E13): “Trading in Scuttlebutt”

“Trading in Scuttlebutt” was a transformative episode for Chicago Fire – so much so that all of the characters are now displaced among different firehouses and jobs across the city. I am so curious to see how this will play out in the next episodes. Chief’s job is clearly up in the air, for some…

Chicago Fire (S05E12): “An Agent of the Machine”

Review: “An Agent of the Machine” was a surprisingly suspenseful episode of Chicago Fire. I’m not exactly sure if I liked this episode or not. It was certainly attention grabbing, but some points seemed too been-there-done-that. I completely understand the desire to bring trouble into Antonio and Brett’s relationship, but it’s sad to see it end…

Chicago Fire (S05E11): “Who Lives and Who Dies”

This episode of Chicago Fire was very interesting, and slightly different than past episodes. It makes total sense that Dawson and Casey had big parts in the main plot lines of “Who Lives and Who Dies” because they are in grief. It was interesting to see their different reactions to loosing Louie. Casey’s was certainly drawn…

Chicago Fire (S05E10): “The People We Meet”

This episode was so powerful. I feel in love with the strength of these characters, and the final few scenes had me in tears. I have mixed feelings about the choice to have Louie’s dad first agree to sign his rights away and then decide he wants custody. This is an overplayed plot. I understand it…
