UnowPriceless hyped garbage
Intcatinfo A Masterpiece!
Humaira Grant It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
e-smith-2 Story archs are mesmerizing and authentic. They leave the viewers anxious for the next episode. Would love to binge watch at the end of each season.
rogerthatrodger-05736 I want to tell everybody that this show is a great show. First episode will get you hooked. I just can't wait for Sunday for this to be on.
jamesmitchell-68374 I have never reviewed a show or movie before. I feel that this show is probably more realistic than some reviewers are giving credit. I listened to an interview from the writer of this show and she is from Chicago. From what I understood, her goal was to take a murder and build from that. To show the audience the ripples that the murder we see on the news actually has on the people in a neighbourhood like this. Most of the characters are good people but the murder of that one person creates consequences and impacts all those around. To think this is fiction or couldn't happen is naive in the world we currently live in. I agree with the one reviewer who compared it to The Wire. An excellent show with great writing and acting.
susanmarconi Do we really need to hear the 10 year olds using gutter profane language, slinking through their elementary school hallways like a band of thugs using every manner of degenerate behaviour that was once at least reserved for hormonal teenagers? I don't care that you are trying to show the "real" deal about's just gross. It is in no way artistic or enlightening to portray children this way to try and get your point across about the identity of this city. Will not watch this trash. By the way...I love Chicago.
