Chicago PD - S03 E20

Drama . Crime . Action

"District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city's street crimes. And there's the Intelligence Unit, the team that combats the city's major offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond. These are their stories."From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series "Chicago Fire", "Chicago P.D." is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city's most heinous offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond.Hand-picked as the head of the Unit is Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do ANYTHING to bring criminals to justice. Voight has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion and commitment to keep the city safe. They include: Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) who is more level-headed and "by the book" than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead's partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former "bad girl" who turned her life around with Voight's help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky's partner.The Unit includes a new member in the form of Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs. Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) assist with the unit but on a daily basis they work the streets as uniform patrol officers often working with intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love although she lets her softer more vulnerable side shine through from time to time. In addition to Wolf, executive producers include Matt Olmstead, Peter Jankowski, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber, Mark Tinker and Arthur Forney."Chicago P.D." is produced by Wolf Films in association with Universal Television.

    The Dick Wolf-produced drama is darker than its sister show, but it packs potential for fun with the city’s cops and firefighters crossing paths both on and off the job.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    It's about characters, and both "Chicago Fire" and Chicago PD are filled with them.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ray Rahman

    P.D. is as straightforward and meat-and-potatoes as police dramas get--Dick Wolf comfort food.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    This one has some great characters and some heart-tugging stories. It also has a real sense of place, though I'm not sure how willing Chicagoans are going to be to claim all of it as their own.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    Chicago P.D. is, in many ways, a throwback to an earlier, male-dominated era of crime shows, yet it carves out room for strong female characters who are good at their jobs and taken seriously by their colleagues--and the writers.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Chicago P.D. looks as though it’s going to walk its beat for a while.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    There’s enough hardened acting chops to make Chicago PD a watchable distraction in the Dick Wolf mode. Will it end up being something consistently good? It probably depends on your definition of good.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Chicago Fire is positioned to succeed. Assuming it uses Hank to wrestle with deeper issues and not just explore all the ways his team can get dirtbags to spill, it’s got a great chance.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The well-traveled Beghe nevertheless convincingly sells the gravelly voiced tough-guy routine, and Chicago PD plays to the cathartic aspects of crime-fighting, provided one tries not to think too much about terms like “enhanced interrogation techniques.” And the show is aided by having the likes of Jon Seda, Elias Koteas and Sophia Bush on the case, even if most of the plotting has a musty and manipulative aroma.

    Variety Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    It's not cutting-edge storytelling, but there are some decent plot threads as the show introduces its characters, including a brash desk sergeant who is either testing a rookie or simply ordering her to do her dirty work.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    P.D.'s also loud--the percussive soundtrack is headache-inducing--formulaic and predictable, not at all like "The Shield."

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Gail Pennington

    As executed, it almost seems like a parody of the genre.... Beghe's growly, macho performance is hard to stomach, getting in the way of even noticing the attractive supporting cast.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    The show is at least meta enough to have the department commander call out the sheer outrageousness of the appointment, but that doesn’t make it any more plausible.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Carrie Raisler

    Spinning off an established show in order to up the chances of that happening is a fine impulse, but this Chicago Fire offshoot is not quite up to the task of creating something indelible just yet.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    It’s a show that’s safe, easy to digest, and predictable, which, sadly, is what audiences are coming to expect from network dramatic programming. Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Unfortunately, Chicago P.D. is just that--a reminder, a breathy echo of other, much better shows. Many of which are available in affordable DVD packages and on various streaming services.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Chris Cabin

    Unlike Law & Order, Chicago P.D. doesn't possess a crucial shagginess, a sense of experience and knowledge in these supposedly weary and seasoned characters that cuts through the hardened cynicism of the show's atmosphere.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    The oldest trope in the TV kingdom dies hard, and in fact dies not at all on Chicago PD, the latest from "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf, who sleepwalks through this show, or at least doesn't bother to wake up long enough to rewrite any of the rules he's established over the past 30 years.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    It tries too hard to get down and dirty in the messy mire where crime happens. It just ends up messy, but without any real grit.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Designed for people who want the legal clock turned back, not just to before the Constitution, but before the Magna Carta, Chicago P.D. is an insult to Chicago, police departments and viewers alike.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Margaret Lyons

    Chicago PD is a bad show. The dialogue is predictable, the acting is marginal, and the plots are the swept-up leftovers from the Dick Wolf Idea Factory.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Chicago PD, is the most arrogantly conceived display of bare-knuckled hooey since the mercifully short-lived Ironside reboot, which polluted the same Wednesday 10/9c time period last fall.
