Did anyone watch The Chicago Code last night? I thought it was pretty good. I especially liked the voiceovers spread among several members of the cast.

I liked that aspect of it too -- especially the surprising use made of one of them (I'll say no more in case someone recorded it to watch later).

As a Chicago boy, I also liked the use of the city. Unlike many shows ostensibly set there but faked in LA plus a sprinkling of second-unit shots, this one really gets across what it looks like and feels like.

It's also a clever move to have the one cop with a distaste for profanity (about which he lectures his junior partner); it lets them make a show that feels a bit like a gritty cable series while avoiding the language one might expect in that context.
