Monday, February 7, 2011: The Chicago Code

There's a new cop drama in town, and its from the mind of Shawn Ryan. Seems like old times... sorta. Except that instead of the violence and intensity of Los Angeles via The Shield, or the easy-going nature of the San Diego-based Terriers we get a slow-building but fast-paced cop drama set in Chicago. But there's corruption. There's always got to be corruption. It's essentially his signature trademark.

Jennifer Beals is the city superintendent, and she's cleaning house and trying to oust an Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo) who isn't exactly on the up-and-up. She enlists the help of curmudgeonly detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) to help build a case against Gibbons. They both seem to be the good guys here, so its definitely more of a straight-up cop drama than either The Shield or Terriers, and since it's on Fox, the chances of it lasting are about dead even. Either it's going to be on for 100 seasons, or it will disappear into the abyss after one.

The new show premieres tonight at 9 on FOX, and its got to be better for your brain than watching The Bachelor.
