Wow! Pretty Bad. This is NOT Chicago!
The only reason I decided to check out this program was because I saw the promos showing Chicago.
If you are from Chicago, you can clearly see this show is not filmed in Chicago. The only shots from Chicago are the transition scenes.
The actual scenes in the program don't even remotely resemble the Chicago area. Where's the green street lights, there are no wooden picnic benches in Chicago parks, they are not "Divisions" they are called districts.
If you are going to make a show based in Chicago, put some effort into making it look and feel real.
Showing the skyline, an 'L' train, the River, the Lake, etc. doesn't make it Chicago.
