    My wife watched the premier of the second season so I suffered through it.

    Safe to say it is every bit as stupid as last season and does nothing to bolster the public image of firefighters.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

      I don't know what you guys are talking about. All that stuff happened to my shift just last set! Now we gotta get a new cot for the bus and I need to lay low because an arsonist is after me. Going car shopping this weekend in fact.

      Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

        Whats get me is, they are dispatched on a box alarm of fire. Arrive and smoke and fire showing from one structure with extension to the one next to it. You look at the street and there is a pumper, rescue company, truck company the medic and BC. NO ONE ELSE!! I know something about Chicago and other large cites protocols on dispatching on Box Alarms.

        Also you still some active fire and smoke and the guys are taking up.

        I know it is TV and for the most part it is OK. But for the other part is is totally BS!
        Stay Safe and Well Out There....

        Always remembering 9-11-2001 and 343+ Brothers

              Backdraft 2 sucks, chicago fire and any of those other shows suck. The only other realistic movie was backdraft the original. Timmy did you check that door for heat.
