This season on Chicago Fire we’ve had…..
AN EX-FIRE-FIGHTER DELIBERATELY SETTING FIRES BECAUSE HE WAS FIRED. Yes. Seriously. And uh, no pun intended.
We’ve had a wannabe-gangster’s (all he did was smash some glass up, pfft) underling go undercover as a love interest to one of the paramedics who part owns a bar (that the wannabe gangster has 1% of), only for her to find out that he works for the wannabe gangster and then after that it turns out that – SURPRISE! – he’s actually an undercover cop!
We’ve also had the Russian cousin of one of the fire-fighters ask Lady Gaga’s boyfriend to marry her so she can stay in the country. Of course.
There was also an episode that spent 15 minutes mentioning the cinnamon test repeatedly. It then turned into a cracker test, because uh, fire-fighters of all people shouldn’t be doing the cinnamon test? I don’t even know.
There’s also been an incident where the widow of a dead-fire-fighter gets done for drink-driving….after drinks to celebrate one year passing after her husband died or something.
In conclusion: this show is so stupid but I can’t help but watch it. It’s just so entertainingly stupid.
SLEEPY HOLLOW (1.03 – 1.05)
There’s been no John Cho. No headless horseman (though he appeared at the end of episode 5 SO HE MUST BE IN EPISODE 6, RIGHT?) Which I so need to watch! I’m not feeling the whole sister storyline because I AM OVER ALL THIS SIBLING NONSENSE. But I quite liked the Roanoke plot in episode 5! I liked the take on the disease and how the “lost colony” stayed lost. It was pretty clever.
Most memorable line: “What is this impenetrable barrier around this instrument?”
