  • Dire - an embarassment to firefighters the world over

    Is it just me who thinks "have the Village People made a comeback" whenever one of NBC's promo stills of Chicago Fire pops out at them?

    There is something about the way this turkey has been cast or shot that conveys a sense of slightly flabby indifference, rather than the sorta hard bloke engagement of previous Hollywood attempts at portraying firemen. It's not just the age of the cast -Rescue Me had some pretty ancient players - who never seemed inauthentic the way Chicago Fire's blokes do. All of Chicago Fire's actors look long past their 'best before' date. Wouldn't matter if the writers had put together a script that acknowledged this.

    Not gonna watch this show again one and a half chances is more than enough the show is predictable, formulaic and derivative.
