Did You Know?


Will Gorski, a Chicago cop, wears a city of Chicago flag on his uniform. The flag consists of four red stars between two light-blue stripes. In his first scene in the series he puts on a sleeveless shirt with a similar symbol on the chest; only instead of stars there is a multiplied Polish coat of arms there (in reality it is white). This choice of attire probably reflects Will's family background - and perhaps that of Mr J.M.Straczynski, the series' co-writer and co-executive producer. See more »


When Will arrives at the hospital with the gunshot victim the nurse in the emergency room tells him they don't treat gunshot victims. If this hospital accepts any federal money like Medicare or Medicaid (very likely if it is on the South Side of Chicago) then it is against the law for them to refuse treatment in a case like this.

The Emergency Medical and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) prohibits any hospital that receives federal money from denying emergency medical treatment or turning away a woman in active labor. At the very least the victim should have been evaluated and had vitals taken. Based on what the viewers could see his injuries were life threatening and the hospital would have been in serious trouble if they would have not accepted him. See more »

Gruelling pilot
28 November 2015 | by Veritas99See all my reviews

I have just seen the pilot episode.

The description was very interesting - there are only a few series with such subjects, drowned in the ocean of movies with crimes, police, action..So I was glad and keen to watch it.

But, I am so sorry, I couldn't resist over minute 30. I understood the subject, the message, but the introduction of the 8 characters was so not interesting...boring and not relevant dialogs...To introduce 8 relevant characters from the pilot episode is ambitious but achievable if you tell their story right. I really tried hard to watch it...but the feeling, after 30 minutes, that I have wasted those minutes was too powerful.
