Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 12 Review: The F Is For

Was I the only one scoffing at an unconscious Severidefloating face up in the Chicago River despite being in full turnout gear on Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 12 ? Well, it's time to eat crow. I should have known the technical advisors wouldn't have screwed up such an important detail. But we weren't the only ones to doubt the buoyancy of fire gear -- these firefighters in Tennessee had to put it to the test. I may not be great at David Letterman's Will It Float? challenge, but I do know a thing about primetime TV. So I was less than shocked when Kelly was safely back with his comrades in under five minutes.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/03/chicago-fire-season-6-episode-12-review-the-f-is-for/

Chicago Fire Review: I’d Jump Off A Building With You

It has long been established that Chicago Fire‘s Casey and Severide have different personalities, and those personalities sometimes clash. They are bound to disagree on a call now and again, but they always work it out. There are many who think that Severide should have had a bigger reaction to Casey’s promotion to Captain. Severide has strong opinions, but he himself has said that he has a better head for leadership than management positions. Deputy Chief Grissom is the one rocking the boat. This time Casey and Severide’s difference of opinion nearly leads to the escape of a convict from a sheriff’s van, and leaves the sheriff’s deputy in worse shape than before. Grissom makes a big show of scolding Casey for overriding Severide’s call on the scene, especially when the deputy sheriff dies. While Grissom is upset about the call, his opinion is biased going into the house since he wants Severide to step up, as a part of his own legacy. Because he spins the conversation according to his already established bias, Casey is made the fall guy, while Severide gets a commendation for his efforts. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Review: Not All Reunions Are Created Equal

Relationships that develop in the vacuum of Chicago Fire get more complicated when they’re between two people who work in house. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it becomes the week’s gossip that the rest of the firehouse gets to tease about. When it gets to the point of being a merry-go-round of ‘what if’ relationships, it’s a bit much. Whoever shall come out a solidified couple, it’s important that the relationship naturally progresses, and isn’t pushed to an uncomfortable point. The good news is that not only is Bria not lying in the morgue, Gabby lets Matt stay with her through the rest of her search for Bria. Here is where the problem comes in. It was clear from the beginning that Gabby wanted to become Bria’s guardian. When Bria does resurface, Gabby thinks everything is going to be okay. However, DCFS has very strict rules, especially if someone wants to switch from fostering a toddler to a teenager. This is what is special about Matt and Gabby. Gabby is always so sure of herself, and sometimes has to be the one that pushes in the relationship. Sometimes she pushes back too hard, to the point where she isolates herself. Matt takes a big longer to catch up because he considers all the possibilities and potential for heartbreak. When he does step up, he steps up in a big way. His insistence that Bria will be safe in their home until her father gets out of rehab pays off. There are so many people obsessed with when these two are going to have a baby, but maybe they have a greater purpose. Perhaps their purpose is to give a safe home to whatever child needs it, and eventually a family will naturally form. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Recap 1/25/18: Season 6 Episode 10 “Slamigan”

Chicago Fire begins tonight with Gabi Dawson (Monica Raymund) and her husband, Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) ringing the bell at the desk. A man asks for her identification but hesitates when she says she is a friend and not next of kin; but he lets her in, revealing she was found in an alley DOA. Gabi is relieved to learn it is not Bria (Quinn Cooke), she has track marks on her arms and Matt wonders why she has Gabi’s card, so when they look at her possessions, Gabi realizes this is all of Bria’s stuff and purse. Gabi goes to see her brother, CPD Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda), who runs the prints on the Jane Doe. He is able to find her boyfriend’s address, but pretends not to see her taking the address; before she leaves he asks how Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) is doing. At Firehouse 51, Sylvie is learning all about Stella Kidd’s (Miranda Rae Mayo) new love interest, Zach (Daniel di Tomasso). She admits she is cautiously optimistic, as he is a gentleman; Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) overhears and wonders since when she opted for the gentleman type? She says she is improving her standards. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 10 Review: Slamigan

The clouds have parted, the sun is shining, and all is well with the world. Yep, Matt and Gabby finally resolved their "problems" on Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 10 . Or at least I think they did? It's kind of hard to tell when no one was super clear what their problems were in the first place. But at least they're talking now, which is definitely an improvement. I mean, I still think they should probably go see a counselor or at least that chaplain who pops up every now and again, but if tv characters (or people) got all the therapy I thought they needed, things would be drastically less interesting.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/01/chicago-fire-season-6-episode-10-review-slamigan/

Chicago Fire Review: Teamwork, Not Silence, Makes a Marriage

The key word this week’s episode of Chicago Fire is teamwork. Teamwork in a house, teamwork in a partnership, teamwork in a marriage. It all connects. The team needed each other to air out the firehouse. Riding in an ambulance or a truck, you need your partner to have your back. And in a marriage, you need your spouse to support you. Only two out of three of these situations work out, and the reason for the outlier is a bit puzzling. Dawson has become attached to Bria, a teenager who has gone missing while her father is in rehab. Dawson is so concerned that this girl could be staying somewhere unsafe, she takes matters into her own hands to track her down. That’s a good thing to do. What’s not good is that Dawson has chosen to go on this quest on her own. Dawson and Casey have had trouble communicating in the past, but I’m not quite sure where this is coming from on Dawson’s part. Dawson has become worked up about certain cases and people she’s saved, but she’s been able to talk about it. Why does everyone think Casey has a problem with getting close to victims? He’s been close to victims, and the times he’s commented on it with other people it’s been because he saw hurt coming. Yet Dawson is acting like Casey wouldn’t support her, or would try to stop her. Not to mention, this isn’t behavior that is good for their marriage. Severide wants to find Bria too, but at least he is communicating with Casey. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Recap 1/18/18: Season 6 Episode 9 “Foul Is Fair”

Chicago Fire begins tonight with Captain Matt Casey (Jesse Spencer) waking up just after 2 am, to an empty bed. He finds Gabi Dawson (Monica Raymund) looking on the computer, but Bria (Quinn Cooke) hasn’t posted in days. He encourages her to get some sleep, but Gabi says the social worker said Bria didn’t have any relatives but there was an Aunt Melinda on her FB. Gabi wants Stella Kidd (Miranda Rae Mayo) to cover for her tomorrow so she can keep working it, Matt isn’t pleased but agrees and goes back to bed. Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) is surprised to see Stella working EMS instead of a truck; but Herrmann says Gabi sometimes gets too passionate about her job. Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) arrives at the firehouse and asks Brian "Otis" Zvonecek (Yuri Sardarov) and Joe Cruz (Joe Minoso) if they smell that, as it smells "ripe". Randall "Mouch" McHolland (Christian Stolte) says that female’s nostrils hold more scent receptors than males, as Otis blames the smell of Capp’s (Randy Flagler) gym bag. They are interrupted by the alarm and all crews are off to a call. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Foul Is Fair

RIP, Mr. Sprinkles. The untimely death of Casey's guinea pig wasn't the only tragedy on Chicago Fire Season 6 Episode 9 . Much more pressing was the matter of where young Bria has disappeared to -- and how far Gabby is willing to go to find her. I won't lie, I was sad about Mr. Sprinkles demise. Not surprised really, but sad. I was holding out hope that maybe Mr. Sprinkles turned out to be Ms. Sprinkles and was going to be found with a fresh batch of Sprinklettes. I know, totally trite and cloyingly cute. But I can't help myself.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/01/chicago-fire-season-6-episode-9-review-foul-is-fair/
