THE CHICAGO CODE “Black Hand And The Shotgun Man” Review

THE CHICAGO CODE "Black Hand And The Shotgun Man" Season 1 Episode 7 – A drug dealer’s son is kidnapped and before the Chicago police force hand him over to the FBI, they are determined to free his boy. Meanwhile, Wysocki’s family troubles have to be hashed out and Liam finally gets closer to Gibbons.

This was a fine episode of The Chicago Code. Not fine as in "what a fine piece of chicken", but fine as in meh. Fine as in I will be depending on the ‘previously on The Chicago Code…’ segment to remember what happened. Fine as in "I cannot believe a show with this much freakin’ potential is this blah!" That sort of fine.

Liam gets closer to Gibbons. Unfortunately Liam has zero charisma and could not hold his own on screen. No, I do not mean his scenes were stolen by Lindo, whose charisma is the only reason his character works at all. I mean both Gibbons and Liam had their scenes stolen right out of their hands by a thing called Liam’s jean jacket. I am not known for my fashion savvy, but Liam’s jean jacket is the real star of the show. And not in a good way. Why would a chauffeur in a fancy dancy car wear a jean jacket? Doesn’t he realise it is not 1995? He was just given a wad of cash for torching a house. Get a new jacket. Read More...
