  • So my wife started watching Chicago Fire on Peacock to kill time. I've watched a few episodes and it's good for what it is.

    What irks me most when watching, and maybe its a touch of the 'tism, but the disparity of the call out on-scene locations sometimes egregiously not matching their filming location gives me an aneurysm.

    "600 North Dearborn" - Oh good they're in the financial district.... wait, that's the abandoned area under I-55 at Ashland.

    "1200 18th St" - Oh, they're gonna be in the Pilen neighborhood... why are they back under I-55 at Ashland?

    "5700 Woodlawn" - Oooh Hyde Park near the Museum of Science and Industry... WHY THE **** ARE THEY COMPLETELY THE WRONG DIRECTION NEAR THE EDENS EXPRESSWAY???


    Is it this bad when people in other metros watch shows based in areas they live/work closely?

              The Chicago series are all good for what they are. Among network dreck, they float to the top. They won't win awards, they aren't going to make you question your existence, but they're better than that 911 garbage and virtually all cop dramas.

                My wife, who spent years in Toronto, chuckles for similar reasons. She recognizes a lot of the neighborhoods that are supposedly in NYC.

                  I could go for days about Mystery Alaska. Like, the first question is how does that place exist and it only goes from there.

                      How does a place that supposedly small have a judge? A District Judge at that, because he clearly hears a civil case with a jury, something a Magistrate can’t do!

                              • I trust everyone involved with the Mr. and Mrs. Smith series, so I'll give it a chance beyond the pilot, which I did not like.
