Did you really need to start the season off like this?
This is why I just can’t get down with Chicago Fire. Sometimes it’s good. And other times, they’re literally not trying to be better than a soap opera. Plots appear and disappear on a whim. Other plots drag on, and on, and on (Dawson and Casey, anyone?). Last season they introduced a female firefighter, in order to facilitate the storyline of Dawson (a paramedic) transitioning into a firefighter). I can’t even remember her name now, because after painting her as awful, a cheat etc they turned around and had her commit suicide. It was so abrupt and weird. Just like the latest character death. Except this time around they killed off an established character for no real reason. Within five minutes, they’d killed her off with all of the subtlety of a sledgehammer to the face. They’re entitled to kill off their own characters but it just seemed weird to put at the start of episode, granted it was a cliffhanger they carried on from the last season, but they could have handled it with a bit more tact. Instead, it seems as if the character was killed off, just so they could have a storyline that wasn’t getting stale (basically all of the ones they created and failed to resolve last season). It just seems lazy.
But considering this is Chicago Fire, I’m sure there is more ridiculousness to come and I can’t pretend that I’m not looking forward to it, lol! I’m probably just annoyed because I was spoilt when I was locating the pigeon picture from my Mentalist post. You guys can never understand how much that damn pigeon frustrated me. I think it’s because the pigeons where I live hate people. They seriously give no fucks. None at all. Once, I was just minding my own business and walking down the street and these people got in my way as I was trying to dodge this low-flying pigeon and that damn bird flapped it’s wing RIGHT IN MY FACE. I don’t know if pigeon wings are made of lead or something but I felt it for a day. I don’t fuck with pigeons. They’re angry and I want no part of it.
I should be posing the SPN recap tomorrow. If I don’t, just assume that I have come to my senses. 🙂
