Chicago Fire Season One – Review

Chicago Fire Season One4.5 out of 5 stars

Series: Chicago Fire

Favourite Episode: 22 – Leaders Lead & 24 – A Hell of Ride

Chicago Fire is a new type of procedural – at least for me, and it is fantastically done. I may also be a little biased due to the constant presence of hot firefighters and stunning paramedics. Regardless, from the first moment that I watched this series, I was in love. Not only are there great characters and unique drama, but the action sequences throughout this show are so realistic and I’ve had to cover my eyes numerous times in anticipation of future pain and agony.

Although this show is filled with a lot of drama and action, it also had the power to make me sob. Which is normally fairly difficult, but I got so caught up in the characters’ lives and battles that when they suffered, part of me was suffering too. This is true mastering of characterisation and storytelling, allowing the audience to become connected to the characters (whether it is on screen or in the pages of a book).
