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…

Chicago PD (S04E06): “Some Friend”

Review: It’s always great when the writers let us into the world of a character more. Olinsky can be a quiet background character, but this episode we heard him scream multiple times and really stand up for what he believed in. He even risks his job as he discovers the truth behind his friend’s crime….

Chicago PD (S4E5): “A War Zone”

This episode had me on the edge of my seat waiting for mysteries to be unfolded. The crimes came across as typical, nothing special, but they ended up being complex. And subtly characters grew more mature and ready to achieve their goals. I found the case involving the young boy and father with a steak knife…

Chicago PD (S04E04): “Big Friends, Big Enemies”

“Big Friends, Big Enemies” started just as the title suggests – big. A gang war hits the neighborhood of Chicago and causes chaos everywhere. I think the best part of this episode was watching Kevin’s character development dealing with a case so close to home. I enjoyed seeing Voight interact with Kevin, as well as Kevin…

Chicago PD (S04E03): “All Cylinders Firing”

After a complex storyline in last week’s episode, Chicago PD toned it down to one dramatic, heart wrenching storyline for characters and audience members in “All Cylinders Firing.” When beloved Platt’s life is at stake, everyone is emotionally connected to the case. I’m very glad that the writers kept minimal plot lines for this episode. It…
