See also

In the first episode entitled “Stepping Stone” we pick up with the cross over episode where they introduced Segeant Hank Vought (Jason Beghe X-men: First Class) but he has left quite a legacy for himself.

This show is a spin-off from the hit Chicago Fire and follows the Chicago Police department as they try and solve crimes in their city. Voight returns the commanding officer in a new precinct. He has 3 detectives working under him helping him make Chicago a safer place.

The show looks like a mix of Law and Order and Graceland. This group of cops look to be taking down not just murders but drug dealers or pretty much anyone who is bad.

This show is going to have a lot of twists and turns as we get to see the inner workings of a police department. On the surface, it looks like it’s going to be a lot of dirty cops and shady operations. We already know that Voight has been shown that he can play dirty, which is why he got this job. No doubt some of the other players will find themselves doing the same thing.

This is not going to be another Law and Order show. This is going to have a lot of drama, twists, turns, and problems that will challenge the new detectives. We can already see that they each have their own demons and problems that will leak into the show.

Here’s a recap of the show.
