Chicago P.D. Review: Know What You’re Fighting For

Chicago P.D. has enough on its plate trying to stop race riots and homicides. There is no need for more stress, but a case doesn’t get more personal than when it involves the safety of your own child. The tension between Voight and Denny Woods is a powder keg in and of itself, without adding the weight of an entire community’s anger, fueled by Denny’s own daughter. Brianna Woods writes an article about members of the basketball team taking a knee during the national anthem, but the resulting violence is about so much more than a flag. Of all people, Denny’s daughter Brianna is the one leading a peaceful protest. Intelligence was already scoping out the protest in anticipation of the arrival of a white nationalist named David Dixon and his ‘Freedom Caucus’. The protest quickly turns violent, and one of Brianna’s friends, Clay, ends up dead. Dixon denies killing Clay, but that’s pretty much the only thing he isn’t guilty of. In the middle of solving Clay’s murder, Intelligence realizes that he may not have been the target. If he was, Brianna wouldn’t be getting shot at. Even more confusing is that the car Brianna’s shooter was riding in belongs to her boyfriend’s assistant basketball coach. The coach’s street recruiter Kendrick Gaines becomes the prime suspect in Clay’s murder, but his connection to Brianna takes some explaining. READ MORE...

A peaceful demonstration descended into a brawl on tonight’s all-new episode of "Chicago P.D" however it what the police found afterward that turned the whole matter into a crime scene. The demonstration had been about police brutality. The people that were there were advocating against those police officers that abused their power and chose to shoot to kill as their first response in situations often involving black men as well women. However, another group arrived not long into the demonstration and they came looking for trouble.

So they came with anger in their heart and more than a few arrived with weapons to forcefully break up the demonstration. READ MORE...

Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 14 Review: Anthem

Delivering storylines stripped from the headlines is one of Dick Wolf's specialties. And briefly, it works well for Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 14 , which tackles the controversial act of kneeling for the anthem. Halsteadis both a cop and a former-soldier so in his eyes, kneeling for the anthem is a sign of disrespecting the flag; disrespect for everything he fought for.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/02/chicago-pd-season-5-episode-14-review-anthem/

Chicago P.D. Review: Denny Discovers Voight’s Crime

The revenge of a parent on those who killed their child is a tale as old as time. It’s only in the last century that we’ve gone with taking the high road. The 2,000 and more years before that, revenge was the name of the game. Voight saw no reason to change that tradition when his son was killed nearly two years ago. Given Voight’s extensive knowledge of the city, it wasn’t too hard to bury this Chicago P.D. crime. No one wanted to pry too hard into the truth, until now. As Intelligence walked unsuspectingly into a case of revenge, Denny Woods upped his attack on his enemy in a major way. Chicago P.D. makes a game of towing the ethical line, but this time an outside force is taking it way too far. READ MORE...

Chicago P.D. Review: Raising The Stakes

Oh Mekhi Phifer, it is so nice to see you on NBC again. I know we’ve seen him on a season here and there of various shows, but the ER alum finally came to his first home network. Though it was just for one episode, it was a heck of a performance. Not only that, but this particular hour of Chicago P.D. was an ER reunion of sorts, since the episode’s director Eriq La Salle is a member of the original cast. I’ll stop with the history lesson now. Point being, if you noticed a heightened level of emotion in the intricacies of the way "Captive" played out, it’s because everyone brought their A-game this week. We didn’t see the biggest firefights, or the most menacing humans, or even the most emotional moments Intelligence has ever had. What this hour of Chicago P.D. was about was a delicate dance of emotions right on the surface, and the moment they were released, you could cut the tension with a knife. READ MORE...

Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 12 Review: Captive

Atwater is a beast... and quite possibly my favorite character. He's also a damn good cop, which is why as intense as Chicago PD Season 5 Episode 12 may have gotten, you knew that Atwater had it handled. Mad props to LaRoyce Hawkins for being able to convince me that everything was fine while also making me so anxious I bit off all my nails. I need to take a few pointers from him on how to stay cool, calm and collected.   ...Read More...   https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/01/chicago-pd-season-5-episode-12-review-captive/
