Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 19 Review: Carry Their Legacy

A blast from the past for Casey was never going to end with two old friends catching up of beers at Molly's. Poor Kannell on showed up on Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 19 so that he could go through an extremely traumatic experience, get himself in deep trouble, and have Matt save his ass. Such is the fate of a recurring guest character. Meeting Casey childhood friend was nice, even if I'm not super into the path that story is headed down. Like Kidd, I'm much more interested in what Kannall can tell us about a certain Alderman's childhood than I am in his survivor's guilt. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/04/chicago-fire-season-5-episode-19-review-carry-their-legacy/

Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 18 Review: Take a Knee

Like Kelly, I am not a happy camper after watching Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 18 . Not only is Anna inexplicably cutting bait, but the Lee Henry plot was unbearable. Thank god for Gabby and Sylvie (isn't that always the case?), the best ladies to learn the job from. Oh, and Matt did some stuff that wasn't horrible or boring or confusing. Yay for Matt, I guess. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/04/chicago-fire-season-5-episode-18-review-take-a-knee/

Chicago Fire Recap 3/28/17: Season 5 Episode 17 “Babies and Fools”

Chicago Fire begins tonight with Christopher Herrmann (David Eigenberg) approaching business partner, Brian "Otis" Zvonecek (Yuri Sardarov) about the pub crawl happening the upcoming Saturday and he wants to enter Molly’s; Otis says no because he doesn’t want to deal with all these drunks throwing up behind Molly’s. One of Lt Matt Casey’s (Jesse Spencer) constituents arrives angry that he is being ignored. He appeases him encouraging him to put his complaints in writing, as Matt apologizes to Marcy the alarms sound, and they are called to a vehicle accident. At the accident site, they realize it is a woman and child; a huge chunk of concrete is sitting on the seat, they assume it hit her in the head as she was driving. Lt. Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney) talks to the young boy, Zach in the backseat; he asks where his baby sister, Layla went; Gabi Dawson (Monica Raymund) gasps. READ MORE...

Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 17 Review: Babies and Fools

Thank god that's over. Not the guy throwing cement off of bridges (terrible, sure), or mopey Otis (definitely painful). No, it was Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 17 's continuous use of "portapotty" and "portatoilet" that was killing me. I hate those words. Couldn't they have gone with the classier "portalet"? Despite the unfortunate word choice, "Babies and Fools" was really solid. Sure, Gabby was becoming a little obsessed, but that's just Gabby. Honestly, it's a shame her job at the arson investigators office didn't pan out. She's got the chops for it. ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/03/chicago-fire-season-5-episode-17-review-babies-and-fools/

Chicago Fire Review: 51 Is Held Captive

Five seasons in Chicago Fire is always searching for new, intense stories to tell. Because the franchise is the firehouse, most stories center around it and the job. That doesn’t mean that once in awhile they can’t pull out a tale that has nothing to do with fighting fires. Some of the best, most relatable plots are the ones which could happen anywhere, at any time. It just so happens that firefighters are trained to handle high pressure situations, so the likelihood of impulsive moves driven by panic goes down significantly. During a hostage crisis, where you want to be is in a room with men and women trained to keep cool. That’s not to say that Firehouse 51 isn’t caught completely off guard when they are taken hostage by gangsters hiding from their enemies. With Dawson and Brett gone on a call, it’s up to Stella to take care of the wounded gunshot victim. She tries her best to help, but she has only so much equipment and training to work with. The young kid guarding her believes she is doing her best, but his crazy friend gets twitchy. He stops Stella from trying to help, then threatens her friends if anything happens to his. It is a stroke of luck that Severide happened to be taking a shower when all of this started, so he was able to get to a radio to call for help. They are so close to getting out when Dawson and Brett come back too early. Casey has to run to waive off his wife, gets shot in the process, and everything blows up from there. READ MORE...

The alarms sound, Gabi and Sylvie Brett (Kara Killmer) are called out for another gun shot victim; as the firefighters discuss the recent turf war happening.

Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 16 Review: Telling Her Goodbye

Even if they're not fighting fires, Firehouse 51 stays cool under pressure. When a local gang loosely affiliated young men with a long list of grievances took shelter at the house on Chicago Fire Season 5 Episode 16 , Kelly got to practice his ninja skills, Stella was a badass, and Boden saw a kid that needed saving.   This may not have been the most important episode to the overall mythology of the #OneChicago world, but damn if it wasn't exciting. It's always nice to see the writing team try something different.  ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/03/chicago-fire-season-5-episode-16-review-telling-her-goodbye/
