Unlike the other two Chicago's, I'm finding it less exciting & difficult to get into it. The characters don't seem to be all that strong but I do like the actors. I'm still a fan intrigued enough to keep watching tho.

I love all the Chicago series! Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, and Chicago PD and how they cross over into one another with the characters playing in one show will be on one of the other shows to help out. Dick Wolf really hit a home run with these shows. I just love them all. And he also crosses over to Law And Order SVU sometimes which I love as well. Never has a producer of tv series done this and it's just great to watch and I love all 3 shows just by themselves. Anyone who enjoys these will fall in love.
