Chicago Fire - (S04E22)

Action . Drama

Truck and squad are called to the scene of a building collapse that has trapped more than a dozen victims inside of the rubble. With the structure ready to give way and not much time to react, Chief Boden faces a difficult decision with life-and-death ramifications. In her quest to foster Louie, Dawson throws all her energies into the bureaucratic process necessary to make it happen, but it is the helping hand of a familiar face that gives her a fighting chance. Currently on medical leave, Otis swings by the firehouse and meets his temporary replacement, hoping it is just that but fearing the worst. Meanwhile, Severide and Kidd continue to see each other outside of the firehouse, and Casey and Antonio find themselves at odds and tensions flare.

    Chicago Fire definitely has familiarity going for it and familiarity going against it as well.

  • Linda Stasi

    Wolf is not about to break any new ground here. He's just creating the kind of TV that people watch.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    In a world without cable dramas, Chicago Fire would be considered television at its more compelling and realistic. As it is, it walks the line between shameless entertainment--hot guys, hot girls, the fires within, the fires without--and intelligent storytelling.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Rote but entertaining, Chicago Fire can't be ruled out as perhaps one of NBC's best chances for a hit.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    This seems like a serviceable drama that merits a bit better ladder grade (heh-heh) for an improved second hour.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    Chicago Fire a predictable but pleasantly familiar throwback that could have been on TV a decade and a half ago.

    Salon Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Chicago Fire gets better week-to-week, finding its own vibe, one that mixes TV-14 gore, soap opera entanglements, and working-class-hero earnestness. Sincerity puts the whole thing over.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    Everyone here, including "Oz's" Eamonn Walker as the battalion chief, is working from the same medium-grim setting, with medium-grim dialogue, which quickly drags the story and action into the still-smoldering ruins of other fire-and-rescue dramas.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    There are rivalries and feuds and dangerous situations, as well as a complete lack of personality. [29 Oct 2012, p.38]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    There's no character you haven't seen before. More importantly, there's no character that hasn't been done much, much better elsewhere.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    It's a bad omen when the show repeats one of its catastrophes next week, just amped to a grislier level. I was bored.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • "Law & Order" mastermind Dick Wolf doesn't blaze any new trails with his latest effort, but at least he's getting out of the courtroom and precinct house.

    RedEye Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    There is nothing exceptional or original about the show.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    One of the new season's dullest shows. [12/19 Oct 2012, p.98]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Dorothy Rabinowitz

    There didn't seem to be anything like [a plot] for the first two episodes, though there has been no lack of good looks, with Taylor Kinney and Jesse Spencer around and filling out their firemen togs nicely. Still there's hope. In episode three, to be exact, where we find a hint that the writers have caught on to the uses of a story line, this about a corrupt police detective.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's not that the show is terrible--it's not--but it brings nothing new to the firefighter drama format.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    It has complex and possibly interesting ideas and subplots. By the time most viewers finish, though, their flame of interest may be flickering.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Despite featuring slickly executed action sequences (though nothing viewers couldn't see on Universal's "Backdraft" ride), Fire is almost as drab as a pile of ash.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Chicago Fire isn't half bad when the fires and other crises take over as the star of the show. It's after the smoke clears and the stories kick back in that you begin to realize the only way to salvage these sorry stereotypes in uniform is to burn them the only way we know how.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    The series is really good at doing exactly what you expect, which makes it surprisingly tedious for a show where lives are on the line almost nonstop.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    None of them is very interesting, and it's actually kind of hard to tell them apart.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Wolf either doesn't know what to do with his characters while they're waiting around for a fire to break out, or thinks their personal stories should be the dominant element in his new series. They could be, if only those stories weren't ripped from the book of overused cliches.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    This just doesn't work on any level and creates very little suspense, even in life-or-death situations.
