Just Chicago Mush
OK, I tried to like this show because it is a Dick Wolff production. But he's made a mistake with this show like he did during his last years with the original LAW and ORDER.
And the problem is with casting.
His shows are based upon us, the viewer, believing and engaging the characters in the stories. If we don't buy into them it takes away from the message. Criminal Intent's senior female detective was excellent and very believable. The female cop during the final years of LAW and ORDER was totally unbelievable and it seriously weakened the show.
Now with the Chicago series of shows, he's doing it again with weak or phony female characters. On this show Chicago Justice there is an aged while female detective that's trying to be the baddest cop in Chicago. Chicago, a city constantly in the headlines with gang crime and multiple murders weekly, well all we have to believe is this one white woman is smarter and better than the other cops in Chicago. I don't even know why she's tracking down bad guys. She ruins the show for me, and since her segment takes the first 30 minutes, I usually turn the channel once I see her unrealistic character try to solve Chicago's problems.
The legal part of the show does not have the intensity of the other LAW and ORDER legal segments. You have the handsome super smart white prosecutor working with the always angry senior prosecutor. It's tiresome.
I like Chicago PD and the Chicago Fire show. They both have weaknesses, but they're much stronger and far more watchable than this show.
