What’s it about
Det. Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) and his intelligence team have always considered rules to be guidelines more than actual laws. Their goal has always been to protect their great city and they have used unique ways to help bring criminals to justice.
I was a little worried about the season with how the last season ended. However, it didn’t pause to breathe, it jumped right back in and has felt better for it. It was getting a bit too bogged down with the side stories of family life outside of PD (albeit they helped us grow to love the characters, but at points before it felt that was taking over the show). This feels like Chicago PD has had a great vacation and returned refreshed and interesting!
Episode 2 is particularly good, and while I am not a fan of NBC at all, thank goodness they have left Dick Wolf to do what he does best with this. Covering Terrorism (which Hollywood refuses to do these days) but with empathy that cuts through tired media bias. There is a particularly moment of clarity with how the press portray a Chicago cop (and without giving spoilers away) have it all wrong. It shows good writing, sensitivity, but realism isn’t glossed over as a result.
I like that the season is focusing on characters other than Lindsey or Voight. More Olinsky and Platt needed, though. I really like the new character, Upton. She was introduced in the last few episodes of Season 4.
