Chicago Fire (S05E08): “One Hundred”

Review: Last night’s episode was a milestone for Chicago Fire. “One Hundred” presents heartwarming plot lines for beloved characters alongside dramatic fire rescues. The anniversary of Molly’s is a fun, light hearted story for Chicago fans. It also gives the writers a perfect way to thank viewers. But what was so interesting with this storyline was…

Chicago Fire (S05E07): “Lift Each Other”

Review: I especially like that the episode was titled “Lift Each Other” because when Casey said that at the end, it really summoned up the entire hour of television we had all just watched. These characters are always looking out for one another – whether for newcomer James or between partners such as Dawson and Brett….

Chicago Fire (S05E06): “That Day”

Review: “That Day” was a powerful episode with many different subplots. These subplots were successful, but left some holes in the storytelling. Dawson’s accident presents a unique obstacle for her and the fire house. We very rarely see this side of things, so it was interesting to see. I liked seeing her come to terms…

Chicago Fire (S05E05): “I Held Her Hand”

As the title suggests, “I Held Her Hand” focuses on one specific event that causes a passive aggressive “I’m right, your wrong” war between Casey and Severide. This is likely to appear in following episodes. I’m excited to see how this unfolds and understand more of Casey’s reasoning. They each saw two very different sides…

Chicago Fire (S05E04): “Nobody Else Is Dying Today”

“Nobody Else Is Dying Today” is hands down the most dramatic episode of the season so far. When Matt gets stuck in a factory with acid, he must work desperately to save himself and two other people before the explosion occurs. This episode was clearly driven by the plot. It was fast paced and intense…

Chicago Fire (S05E03): “Scorched Earth”

“Scorched Earth” packed the most punch from characters. Everyone seemed to gain confidence and stronger sense of what they wanted in this episode. And then they got it. The writer’s provide a plethora of emotions – everything from terrifying fear of loosing your child to mystery in finding Chris to happiness when Casey fights for…

Chicago Fire (S05E02): “A Real Wake-Up Call”

This episode brought two cases that were closely intertwined with the Fire House and that was very interesting to watch. “A Real Wake-Up Call” brought the plot line with Borrelli to its climax. I sincerely hope that he will remain on the show somehow, even though he will no longer be able to work, having only…

Chicago Fire (S05E01): “The Hose or the Animal”

Everything seems complete now that Chicago Fire is back. After leaving us with a cliff hanger at the end of Season 4, the writers have done it again with the end of “The Hose or the Animal.” The fate of Grant is unknown to us, but we can expect a lot of drama in the…

Chicago Fire (S4E23): “Superhero”

Review: This wasn’t a groundbreaking episode, but it built upon past episodes wonderfully. With that said, I really enjoyed watching this episode. A lot of the times, Chicago Fire doesn’t make me as interested as the other shows in the One Chicago franchise, but last night, I was sold. I found it very interesting that they…

Chicago Fire (S4E22): “Where The Collapse Started”

Review: This episode of Chicago Fire was bittersweet. Portraying death side-by-side with budding mother-child love wrecked my emotions. Speaking of the death, I personally would have liked to see the brothers relationship unfold on the matter of the liquor license a bit more before one of them died, but their last moments in the collapsing building…

Chicago Fire (S4E21): “Kind of a Crazy Idea”

Review: “Kind of a Crazy Idea” was an episode filled with so many different heart warming moments, I felt my throat choke up along with the actors. The challenges of the foster care system where brought up delicately and furthered Dawson and Matt’s relationship. I also enjoyed the persistence of Otis’s friends and his vulnerability…

Chicago Fire (S4E20): “The Last One for Mom”

Review: My favorite part about this episode was JayJay’s video project, which highlighted why the workers decided to become firemen and women. It was simple and so effective. JayJay’s final video was heartbreakingly sweet as well. There were some failed plot lines in this episode as well. First of all, we never checked back in with…
