One Chicago Crossover Review: ‘Chicago Fire’ and ‘Chicago PD’

‘Chicago PD’ 7×03 Review: “Familia”

Normally, unraveling a mystery and seeing our favorite characters triumph over the week’s murderer/drug dealer/generally bad guy (or girl!) is enough to keep me interested. But that’s not what I’m thinking about after this week’s episode. This Chicago PD 8×03:…

‘Chicago PD’ 7×01 Review: “Doubt”

The more I reflected on the season seven premiere of my favorite of the One Chicago trio, Chicago P.D., the more frustrated I became. Not because it wasn’t a gripping episode or that many of my season wishes are apparently…

‘Chicago Fire’ 8×01 Review: “Sacred Ground”

Major spoilers, obviously. I’m writing this review through my tears. Even though it’s surprising that it took Chicago Fire 4 years to kill off another core character (RIP Shay forever), there was still, just for a second, a momentary hope…

5 Things We’re Hoping For in ‘Chicago PD’s Seventh Season

I’ve loved Chicago P.D since the backdoor pilot some 7 years ago on Chicago Fire. Sergeant Hank Voight is the most ruthless and dedicated boss with some intriguingly questionable work practices, and the Intelligence Unit is the best of the…

6 Things We’re Hoping for in ‘Chicago Fire’ Season 8

Adele Lim and Crazy Rich Asians: Seeking Our Own Riches

‘Burden of Truth’ 2×05 Review: “Hungry, Cold and Tired”

Sorry for the lateness of this recap everyone! We celebrated Canada Day this weekend up in the Great White North, and I snagged opening day tickets to Spider-man: Far From Home (it’s amazing) so I didn’t get this review out…

Burden of Truth: ‘Guilt By Association’ 2.04 Recap and Review

There’s only one question on everyone’s mind right now: who killed David Hanley? In Sunday’s episode of Burden of Truth, the quest for the answer begins. But as I suspected in last week’s review, Sam Mercer remains The Worst and…

“The Milk of Human Kindness” Burden of Truth 2.03 Recap and Review

“The Rabbit Hole” Burden of Truth 2×02 Recap and Review

‘Burden of Truth’ 2×01 Review: “Salesman, Cheats and Liars”
