The squad of a Chicago fire station leads dangerous lives. There are difficult decisions to be made every day and not everyone makes it out alive. Amidst fire, losses, and budget cuts that hreaten everyone's future, the team of Chicago Fire stands together as a family. So bring on the drama! Bring on the romance! Bring on the cameradery!

Yay or Nay?

For everyone, who is into procedural dramas, here's one that'll get your adrenaline pumping! There are catastrophes and crimes that in their scale remind you of another Chicago-based drama: ER. The large ensemble cast is also similar to ER. There are a lot of very different, interesting characters on this show, ranging from the young, yet experienced all-female embulance team, to the veteran police chief, with some moral conflicts. You just want to root for them - and not just in a romantic way, which is a refreshing quality, compared to other shows. Yet, there are also quite a few egocentrical and annoying characters, who make it really hard to handle following their storylines. Still, there is a good balance in storytelling between being on the job and getting to know the characters' private lives. Chicago Fire also ties in with fellow shows Chicago PD and Chicago Med, which is an interesting way of unfolding a pretty detailed picture of a fictionalized Chicago and its people.
