  1. Call me a sentimental sap but I liked this one. It hit the right notes, mostly and showed a side of Severide I really like. As for Detective Hottie McHotterson, a.k.a. Severide's next belt-notch, I don't like her character and attitude. I know real-life murder police and she ain't it. There was no need for chain of custody for the hairbrush. That was just to check and see if there was a familial match to confirm ID. After 9/11, victims' families were asked to bring in hair brushes, toothbrushes and so on for the same thing. Chain of custody would only become relevant if they were going aft
  2. I think in the real world, any cop who tried to pull that kind of a stunt would be very clearly reminded that shot cops are treated by these same ER folks and they're not a group of people you want to piss off over what would be a relatively minor DUI case. Nobody died, the DoucheBro is probably in his late teens so likely isn't a repeat offender. Maybe I'm wrong, and I certainly don't know Illinois laws at all, but the patient/suspect refused to give a blood sample in front of witnesses. In many places that in itself carries the same penalties as DUI, so the end result would be a convicti
  3. So life imitates art: "A woman used forged documents to pretend to be a lawyer for a decade and was in line to be named partner of a firm when her fraud was discovered late last year, according to charges filed by the state attorney general's office. "Kimberly Kitchen, 45, of James Creek, Pennsylvania, was charged on Thursday with forgery and unauthorized practice of law. "The forgery charge is a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by up to five years in prison; the unauthorized practice charge is a third-degree misdemeanor, carrying up to a year in jail." Both charges were state mi
  4. Nice shoutout to LMS on the "DC Legends of Tomorrow" episode "Marooned." The captain of the Acheron, the flagship of the time fleet, was named...Eve Baxter! (Or maybe LMS' Eve was a shoutout to a comic book character? Dunno; not a comic fan).
  5. One nice throwaway that I didn't see anybody bring up in the earlier:The odds of Ray Palmer surviving the cardiac arrest were 3720:1. About the same as surviving a trip through an asteroid field. Also a nice shoutout to Last Man Standing. Captain Eve Baxter. Maybe her not getting in to West Point was a Good Thing for the timeline?
  6. Except that there are a million stories on TV of little guys getting screwed and the Lawyer With A Heart stepping up to save the family farm. I like those, but they're too common and frankly boring. I loved the glamour of Suits. Very high-priced lawyers playing for millions and even billions, living a lifestyle I could only dream about. If PSL is relegated to bond court or chasing ambulances it won't be the Suits I loved from day 1. Sure I like Mike "the Conscience" Ross as a foil to Harvey "The Closer" Specter but what fun will it be to see Harvey representing DWIs and landlord-tennant cases?
  7. There is no parole in federal prison so if he pleads to two years he does two years, but there is a provision for up to 54 days per year for good behaviour. So he'd still have to serve 622 days out of 730. I'm torn between how I want this to play out. I was hoping they'd find some last-minute tactic that would have invalidated the whole mess Mike got himself into, but that would have been lazy (but satisfying) writing. On the other hand, they now have to either go with "Two years later" to open next season or pull some insane rabbit out of their--er--hats. Neither works for me. If they
  8. Absolutely correct. In the real world, you'd have a dozen squad cars on hand to secure the scene before EMS and FD would even be allowed down the block. And besides, PD are often dispatched to unknown type rescue jobs, and *because* it's an unknown type rescue, FD would be toned out as a matter of course for possible forced entry. Which also brings me to the house fire. "51 get some water on that fire." Right-o chief. Except I didn't even see the engine company in the establishing shot. And even if it was there, it would take a four man crew about two minutes to take a hydrant, hook up a supp
  9. Sorry, but every time I hear them talk about OPA, all I can think of is "Olivia Pope & Associates" More wine? (sorry, couldn't resist). I've really fallen hard for this show and now can't wait to read the books--much the same as I felt for Game of Thrones and the ASOIAF novels as well as Outlander. So far it's hitting all the right notes for me, especially their world building. For a SyFy-based show I can't believe how good they've made it all feel and fit together. Like others here, I find Closed Captioning the only way to understand what's being said. Too many shows these da
  10. I watch both this hot mess and Code Black and I guess I must be in the minority (judging by both shows' ratings), but I prefer CB over this any day. Like PD and Fire, I like the procedural aspect more than who's boinking whom and which character they're going to put through the wringer this week. So with that in mind comes my biggest complaint about this show. It's set in an undetermined part of Chicago, but obviously within the operating area for the companies of House 51 and the 21st (?) district of PD, so likely within a couple of miles. It's a pretty gritty urban neighbourhood with ple
  11. I think those shifts are also populated by the other 3 or 4 engine companies, 2 or 3 truck companies, haz-mat and other assorted appartus that would roll on every single working fire. And as for that roof rescue, anything involving the words "on the roof" would mandate something that could throw up at least one ladder (if not the stick itself). Even engine companies carry at least a couple of ground ladders, and honestly the closest engine to the address would have been sent with the Squad and ambo.
  12. Yea. I'm actually enjoying this trainwreck of a show. I was ready to jump off a few weeks ago but I'm actually glad I hung in.
  13. Mellie is overdue for a serious case of the get-evens and at this point I think she's just making her @#$% list and will be ladling it out before the mid-season break. I for one am looking forward to the inevitable FLOTUStorm to come. I think she'll give Cersei Lannister a run for her money by the time this story is over.
  14. Just finished the show tonight. Loved it and I hope they do a second season--hopefully with more shoutouts to TAR and TAR-C (since it's a Canadian production). I'd love to see Phil do a cameo just for fun. I didn't like the fact that there were so many NELs but with 18 teams and 26 episodes I guess you kinda gotta do it. I'm now officially referring to the Amazing Bathmat as the Carpet of Completion and the clue boxes as Don boxes when I watch the mothership show from now on. And there is no subway at 81st and 3rd, nor is there a station at the ESB :). And why they'd be that far uptown com
  15. Just saw a promo during this afternoon's reruns: Thursday, November 5th; same day as season 2 of Nightwatch begins. My Thursday nights are about to become interesting once more. I couldn't determine what cities were being featured this year, however.
