Chicago PD (S04E19): “Last Minute Resistance”

“Last Minute Resistance” was a powerful and sad episode of Chicago PD that tackled issues of a rapist culture. I thought this plotline was handled very well. It’s such a relevant topic and seeing the conferences about how men can earn power over women for sex was uncomfortable and horrifying, but those things do happen…

Chicago PD (S04E18): “Little Bit of Light”

“Little Bit of Light” was a nice, but slightly confusing episode of Chicago PD. I liked that they used a character who we had previously seen on the show in a negative light, but now he was the victim. It offered an interesting perspective how police officer’s sometimes have to help people they don’t particularly like….

Chicago PD (S04E17): “Remember The Devil”

“Remember The Devil” was an intriguing and mysterious episode of Chicago PD that left my heart in pain for Linstead. The main plot arch followed the kidnapping of two young girls. While we never official figured out exactly who the mastermind behind the crimes was – Austin, the recently deceased man, or his wife? Whoever…

Chicago PD (S04E16): “Emotional Proximity”

The second episode of the #OneChicago television event hit close to home for Alvin, when his daughter Lexi died due to organ failure. His grieving hasn’t occurred in normal fashion, so we should expect that in later episodes. In terms of cases, this was pretty simple. Emotionally, it was high intensity watching the death toll…

Chicago PD (S04E15): “Favor, Affection, Malice, Or Ill-Will”

I really enjoyed this episode of Chicago PD. It felt fresh and exciting, but also it had a simplistic quality to it which can be nice for this kind of high action TV series. Ruzek is back on screen, but his transition back is certainly not as smooth as he anticipated. I enjoyed this small upset for…

Chicago PD (S04E13): “I Remember Her Now”

This episode of Chicago PD was fresh and intriguing. Halstead plays a huge role in “I Remember Her Now,” which I really enjoyed. Jay was the best person to handle this job. He genuinely cared about these girls, and was equally distressed when he thought he had been tricked. I never fully understood Platt’s frustration for…

Chicago PD (S04E12): “Sanctuary”

“Sanctuary” was a really well done episode that lived up to its promotional hype. It is hard to point out anything wrong with this episode. The plot had twists and depth. It was fast paced and heartfelt. The relationship with the police vs the church was very interesting. I did not realize sanctuary in a church was…

Chicago PD (S04E11): “You Wish”

Review: I loved this episode. It had character growth and tension and a unique case. Erin’s character had been fairly stagnant this season, so seeing her faced with more challenges with her mother was refreshing and entertaining. I am curious to see how her character will develop in the coming episodes. Could Voight be her…

Chicago PD (S05E10): “Don’t Read The News”

This week we got not one but two episodes of Chicago PD, and “Don’t Read The News” sets in motion the changes that will be taking place in this half of the season. Burgess moves into the intelligence office as Adam has himself placed on a different investigation. This leads to new partnerships and a new officer…

Chicago PD (S04E09): “Don’t Bury This Case”

“Don’t Bury This Case” is an excellent example at good storytelling and how the PD writers masterfully create plot twists. Severide’s case takes many turns, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats trying to figure it out along with the police officers. There were very few week moments, but one of those was Platt…

Chicago PD (S04E08): “A Shot Heard Round the World”

Immediately following “300,000 Likes” follows “A Shot Heard Round the World,” a dramatic episode which tackles timely subject matter. This episode wasn’t as dramatic as it was advertised. The end didn’t live up to expectations of drama which I had prepared for, but there certainly was a cliffhanger. Jay’s official dinner with Bonny presented itself…

Chicago PD (S04E07): “300,000 Likes”

The 2 hour season finale of Chicago PD felt like living a day in the life of the officers. With two very different but intense cases, viewers experienced how quickly officers must move on from one case to the next. The first episode “300,000 Likes,” felt like every other episode. The only thing different was…
