New This Week

The Blu-ray Star Trek: Origins ties into today’s release of “Star Trek: Into Darkness” as it contains five (excellent) HD episodes that feature the first appearances of a number of elements utilized in “Darkness”:

• “The Cage,” the original pilot that introduced Chris Pike and Mr. Spock.

• “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” the second pilot capturing the first time William Shatner played James Kirk;

• “Space Seed,” marking the first appearance of Khan Noonian Singh;

• “Errand of Mercy,” marking the first appearance of the Klingons; and

• “The Trouble with Tribbles,” marking the first appearance of the furry menace.

A drama about firefighters in a town known for its fire, “Chicago Fire” comes to us from screenwriters Michael Brandt & Derek Haas (“2 Fast 2 Furious,” “Catch That Kid,” “Wanted,” “The Double”).

It stars handsome Jesse Spencer (“House”), the fabulous Lauren German (“Hostel 2,” “Happy Town,” “Hawaii Five-0”) and the great Eamonn Walker (“Oz,” “Kings”).

It depicts the world’s best-looking paramedics and firefighters, but also perhaps the world’s least interesting. “Chicago Fire” isn’t even as compelling as “Third Watch,” let alone Denis Leary’s “Rescue Me.”

HuffPost TV says:

... what you really need to know about this saga of firefighters and paramedics is that it has no spark, no fire, it's utterly damp, it's on life support, it needs CPR, [insert your own tired pun here]. …

The New York Times says:

… The blazes aren’t very convincing, and neither are the intrasquad dramas …

The Los Angeles Times says:

... this is not "Rescue Me," the Denis Leary dysfunctional firemen show, by a long shot. The conflicts are more conventional, the sentiments more sentimental. But there is life-and-death suspense on the streets, some of it impressively staged; convincing ordinary detail in the station house; and a cast that has been clearly encouraged, in the Jack Webb-derived Dick Wolf way of things, to underplay. …

The San Francisco Chronicle says:

... given [Dick] Wolf's skill at defying the odds to make formulaic TV interesting, you'd expect his new show, premiering Wednesday on NBC, to be minimally worth a look. It isn't. …

The Washington Post says:

... Everyone here, including “Oz’s” Eamonn Walker as the battalion chief, is working from the same medium-grim setting, with medium-grim dialogue, which quickly drags the story and action into the still-smoldering ruins of other fire-and-rescue dramas. …

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says:

... a derivative ensemble drama with no point of view at all. It’s the widget of TV dramas. …

The Boston Globe says:

... a garden-variety action procedural, with a crew of EZ-to-read characters and story lines that start at A and finish exactly where you expect them to, at Zzz. …

USA Today says:

It can't have been easy to turn a subject this hot into a show that struggles to reach lukewarm. ... Carefully remove every shred of originality or excitement, and you're left with that kind of well-funded mediocrity that marks so many broadcast series. …

The Hollywood Reporter says:

... if you’re looking for something groundbreaking in the procedural department, you’re not going to find it in this drama about guys on the Firehouse 51 truck …

Variety says:

... almost as drab as a pile of ash. …
