This was a great show with good stories, great acting and real life Chicago visuals. The entire cat was great and Jennifer Beals was particularly good in her role as police chief. It's too bad Fox didn't give the Chicago Code a 2nd season, but al least the series finale tied up a few lingering questions. Great show that was too short lives.

With the 2010-2011 television season wrapping up, it is official that the promising "The Chicago Code" will not be back for a sophomore year. An intriguing, if not wholly successful, cop show--I will say this one scored huge points for not being a typical procedural tackling a new case each week. Created by Shawn Ryan, the show excelled at depicting the political struggles and manipulations inherent in a government bureaucracy even if it didn't always ring true with its supporting characters and peripheral story lines. But at heart, the show's strengths far outweighed its shortcomings. I came into "The Chicago Code" with pretty hefty expectations, I must admit. Ryan created, in my opinion, TV's greatest police drama "The Shield" as well as the under appreciated and quirky "Terriers." Both of those shows, however, benefited from being on FX--a network that is able to provide edgier and more realistic fare than traditional networks (this aired on Fox). In most respects, you can see the distinct difference.

The show centers around the appointment of a new police commissioner (Jennifer Beals) who vows to tackle corruption and complacency within the Chicago department. Aided by a former colleague and hotshot cop, Jason Clarke, the pair take on cases of particular political volatility. One of their primary targets is a potentially corrupt city alderman played with precision by Delroy Lindo. It is this continuing story line that gives "The Chicago Code" its greatest drama and intrigue.

The Good: Clarke, a great actor who has been restrained in previous roles, has a chance to really break out here. Beals is an intriguingly complex character. And Lindo, as I mentioned, is riveting. He steals every scene he's in. The action revolving around his plot lines is dynamic and mesmerizing.

This series was great for action and suspense without the foul language and eroticism. I don't know why the series was cancelled after the first season...

This show was a great show because it depicted real events relevant to the city of Chicago and other major cities in the U.S.

I liked the main detective in the series. There were not many things that I disliked other than the abrupt cancelllation of this great show.

I would recommend this product to my family and friends who enjoy cop shows.

I started watching this show because I like Chicago so much. I'm not from there but when I visit, everyone treats me like I'm their long lost favorite auntie. They even offer me a seat when it's crowded on the L.

However, I keep watching because the stories are interesting and the acting is, for the most part, very good. There are some characters that kind of get on my nerves and I sometimes wonder if it's their story lines or their acting. But they're easily overlooked by the fine work done by everyone else. And... it's actually being shot in Chicago, which is a definite plus for me.

I'm thoroughly enjoying this series. Didn't know it existed till I saw it on Amz VOD. There's plenty of excitement. Maybe I enjoy it more being a Chicagoan. Give it a couple episodes, and the characters grow on you.

Too bad it's been canceled.

This show should have never been cancelled - extremely realistic with believable actors and one of the best cities to film anything in.
