Storyline

Series follows the vendetta between an honest (female) police superintendent, Teresa Colvin and a corrupt Alderman named Gibbons, as she tries to prove Gibbons has ties to some criminals. And at the center is Cole's point man Jarek Wysocki, probably the most honest cop in the Chicago PD, who tries to clean up the city as well. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Great fun, shot mostly on location in one of the most photogenic cities in the country
15 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There have only been two episodes so far, but I love the overall direction of the story line, as well as the writing.

I spent the first 6 years of my life in Chicago, and returned many times after that until I was around 30 or so. It's now been a couple decades plus since I've been back. Nonetheless, the city is instantly recognizable here--even though it seems to be shot so far mostly on the south side, and I've spent all my time there as a kid and young adult on the north side.

Chicago has a very distinctive visual personality made from a mix of fairly unique residential architecture, back alleys and of course, the omnipresent El, threading it's way through, and connecting together, various areas of the city. That so much of every episode is shot on location really helps give this story about the mix of corrupt politics with cops + robbers an anchor in reality--even if some reviewers here consider the plot line itself a bit light on reality, or even disrespectful to the real memory of the officers with whom they themselves served.

While I can't comment on that aspect, so far I love it for what it is--a thoughtful, fun and well acted action police drama with an exciting visual style. This one should be a winner for Fox.
