Chicago Fire – Season 1 (Part one)

Chicago Fire, a series by Dick Wolf, is a series I started watching with the expectation of it being a series about sexy men working at a fire station. I thought it would revolve around such men is because of posters consisted mainly of shirtless actors Jesse Spencer and Taylor Kinney. Anyway, my curiosity was triggered. How would they fill a complete season about a series about a fire station? Would we see a fire in every episode? Wouldn’t that be boring after the first episode?

But my expectations were correct for about maybe ten per cent. They are indeed sexy firemen, and yes, you do sometimes see them shirtless, however there is a much bigger story. Not just a story, a well-written story that makes you curious about the following episode.

The first episode starts out with a group of firemen that are on their way to a fire. Once arrived at the burning house, the group of firemen led by Severide (Taylor Kinney, The Vampire Diaries) go into the house, and the group led by Casey (Jesse Spencer, House) go up on the fire stairs. An explosion occurs and because of someone’s misjudging, fire fighter Darden dies. This leads to friction between team leaders Casey and Severide, because they hold each other responsible for this loss. In addition to the regular fire fighters, there are also two medics, Dawson (Monica Raymund, Lie to me) and Shay (Lauren German, Hawaii Five-0). In the first episode we see them in action after a shooting. Of course, the shooters haven’t disappeared yet and they have to deal with these issues as well. We also see the men and women in action after a car crash. The series is not just about putting out small fires, they have already created three different settings within this first episode.

Also, in this first episode, we get to know Peter Mills (Charlie Barnett). He’s the new guy at Firehouse 51 and a good reason to fully explain some parts of the episode to the viewers. In addition, each character has his or her own story and their problems are being addressed in an interesting and credible way. This, of course, with a lot of humour placed at appropriate moments. You can empathise with the characters and get entangled in their lives. Although you might expect that a series about fire fighters would be exaggerated to make it more spectacular, the series turns out to be impressively credible and there is plenty of action that will make you anticipate every moment.

The storylines get more interesting every episode and the cliff-hanger of the winter finale came as a shock to me. The actors are good, the storyline is believable and there is a lot of action. A series suitable for both men and women makes this an ideal series to watch together in the evenings.

I got hooked on Chicago fire from the get go, the death of andy darden in the pilot engulfed in flames from the flashover because of no ventilation, that was back in 2012, fast forward to 2022, im still hooked on Chicago fire, doesn't matter if my favorite character (Dawson) has left, I'm still hooked, im constantly watching reruns, current season I'm watching is season 3, which brings me to Chicago pd, hooked on the crossover episode (8:30pm) where voight nearly tossed powell off of the roof of a nearby skyscraper, & so onto Chicago med, wasn't sure about med if it would be a success or not, but I'm glad it was, I'm currently watching reruns of Chicago pd season 2, I haven't yet started rewatching Chicago med yet, & finally Chicago justice, i was surprised to see that Chicago justice was canceled after one season, but I still consider it part of the OneChicagoCenter, but hopefully the franchise will continue past the current upcoming seasons.
