cap.2 THE CHICAGO CODE “Hog Butcher” Advance Review
THE CHICAGO CODE “Hog Butcher” Episode 2 – Did you catch The Chicago Code last week when it premiered on Fox? What did you think? Well, if you thought the pilot was a good start, you will love tonight’s episode. I had the opportunity to review it in advance and I am hooked on this show. The confusion I initially had about the corruption and backstories seem to be working itself out with every new viewing. Like last week’s episode, The Chicago Code continues to provide background on some of the characters in voiceovers done either by the characters themselves or someone that knows them. I find this technique particularly engaging.

This week’s episode of The Chicago Code focuses on the aftermath of the shooting and killing of Antonio, Superintendent Colvin’s driver and longtime friend. Not only is the entire force upset over the loss of one of their own, but Colvin and Jarek wonder if there isn’t more to the story than an upset cop with a grudge. Naturally, in a city full of corruption and after having just formed a secret task force to bring it down, one would want to think that something like this is related, but is it? That is something that Colvin and Jarek work through this week with the help of Liam, who risks his cover, and Isaac, who risks subordination to get to the truth.

There were quite a few moving scenes. When Colvin pays her respects to Antonio’s mother, you can feel the heartbreak all the way around. Later when Antonio’s mother finds out the ramifications of Antonio’s actions, a different kind of heartbreak emerges. Is Alderman behind that as well? There is also a scene involving a long time police officer coming to terms both with the changes in his career and the effect of his own actions. Finally, there is a powerful scene at the end with Jarek when for one brief moment, he truly lets someone in.

The Chicago Code is a great show. Already, I find myself invested in the characters which is amazing after only two episodes. The actors are all good, but Jason Clarke is the true standout with his character, Jarek Wysocki. I know The Chicago Code is supposed to be centered around Superintendent Colvin and her fight to save the city, but I suspect we will find that it truly centers around Jarek. He is the heart of the show.

Tune in tonight to the second episode of The Chicago Code at 9:00 p.m. ET on Fox and then come back here and tell me what you thought in the comments below.

sobre la parte negativa de las críticas

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/ustv/news/a303956/ryan-chicago-code-not-watered-down.html?rss
Ryan: 'Chicago Code not watered down'
The Chicago Code creator Shawn Ryan has denied that the show has been watered down for network television.

Ryan told the New York Times that lead character Jarek Wysocki's aversion to profanity was not "a sellout concession to network standards".

"I tended to look at it as an opportunity to give the character some definition," he said. "You go in thinking [that] we're not going to be able to drop any s-bombs and f-bombs, so you say... do we just ignore that fact [or] try to make it realistic?"

He added: "I do like the idea of a character who has a chivalry that makes him more powerful and more interesting in a way."

Ryan, who previously created cop drama The Shield for cable network FX, also insisted that he was happy to adjust his style for different mediums.

"I have no problem at all going back and forth between cable and network," he claimed. "I'm perfectly happy to colour within the network lines when I have to."

The Chicago Code continues on Mondays at 9/8c on Fox.

ya la están llamando superwoman , jaja

http://www.tvguide.com/News/Chicago-Code-Beals-1029707.aspx
The Chicago Code's Jennifer Beals: Superwoman Hasn't Come to Chicago

On the other end of the phone, Jennifer Beals is reading a Carl Sandburg poem titled "Chicago." Scratch that — she's performing it.

The poem celebrates Chicago's blue-collar work ethic as what trumps portrayals of the city as a corrupt, dangerous place to live. It's the best way for Beals, a Windy City native and star of Fox's The Chicago Code, to explain how she — and her character, Police Superintendent Teresa Colvin — feel about the place they call home.

"I have such a fierce love for my hometown and always have," Beals tells TVGuide.com. "The Sandburg poem is really helpful in understanding Chicago. It still holds true. That is Chicago, except for now there are amazing skyscrapers amidst it all.

"There is still that sort of fierce pride and that fierce love is reflected in a code of behavior," she continues. "People are very, very proud of their city despite the fact that there's corruption."

That corruption is exactly what Teresa, the first female police superintendent in the city's history, is trying to squash. But before she can take down dirty politicians of The Chicago Code world, like Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo), who is keeping the city under his thumb, Teresa has to find a way to lead the predominantly male police force.

"She's trying to understand what that leadership looks like," Beals says. "I think that she's definitely given over her entire life to this job, for better or for worse, and it's really interesting playing somebody who's struggling to create the template. There are times when she struggles with her leadership style. One moment, she's pretty authoritarian and isn't really sharing information, and there are other moments where she wants to be inclusive, but to do so might be perceived as being weak or incompetent. She really wants those men and women to be safe. And she knows that she can't really attack the bigger picture without having her own backyard in order."

Beals' hardened portrayal of Teresa Colvin is a far cry from the 47-year-old actress' star-making turn as the off-the-shoulder-sweatshirt-wearing lead in Flashdance. In Monday's episode Teresa's toughness will be on full display, as her cat-and-mouse game with Gibbons reaches a whole new level. While Gibbons proves just how powerful and manipulative he can be, Beals says Teresa proves she won't be deterred by the shifts in momentum.

"It jockeys back and forth," Beals says. "Alderman Gibbons is such an expert at it that Teresa's at the losing end quite a bit because she's not as astute as he is yet. She's obviously got game, but she doesn't have the kind of experience nor the contacts that he has. So it's really a David-and- Goliath situation. But she's not going to give up. The real struggle too is: How do you fight the corruptor without yourself becoming corrupt?"

Assisting Teresa in her mission is her former partner, Detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke). But his history with and loyalty to the new boss literally puts him under fire with his fellow officers in Monday's episode. But is there more to that relationship?

"They have a very profound, deep relationship with one another that is really based on respect and a mutual regard for one another," Beals says. "So often the base of a romantic relationship will be those very things of respect and admiration for someone, but for them, it's different. There's that energy that goes between them that's very palpable.

"He's probably one of the few people who can tell her the truth and he does go out of his way to [do so]," she continues. "He's really her best friend as far as we can see so far."

Beals says it's nice to see a pair of cops like Colvin and Wysocki in today's antihero-obsessed TV landscape. (Chicago Code executive producer Shawn Ryan created one of TV's most memorable antiheroes in The Shield's Vic Mackey.) But she teases that Teresa's motivations run deeper than being just a true-blue hero.

"It's not as if Superwoman has come to the Chicago Police Department," she says with a laugh. "She's got a lot of personal problems that start to be revealed later on as the season goes. There is such a thing as the 'white shadow.' Why is somebody so determined to do good?"

"You have to ask yourself, 'Why do I do it?'" Beals continues. "Do I do it to benefit all mankind, or do I do it because I have such a wound inside me that I feel will only be healed by doing good for others? Either way is valid and helpful for the rest of the world, but there will be a time when you will be called to heal yourself on your own. And I think at one point, Teresa Colvin is going to have to address the wounds that are inside her that cannot be healed even if she had the entire city planting daisies and dancing hand-in-hand."

The Chicago Code airs Mondays at 9/8c on Fox.

Q & A: Jennifer Beals on her new show, ‘The Chicago Code’
February 28, 2011 by Lance Carter



AUDIO --> http://www.dailyactor.com/?powerpress_pinw=13046-podcast

The Chicago Code, Shawn Ryan’s (The Shield, Terriers) great new show on FOX, stars Jennifer Beals as Teresa Colvin, Chicago’s first female superintendent. She and her ex-partner, Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) band together to take down their enemies, including Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo).

I got a chance to talk with Jennifer on a conference call where she talked about coming back to series television, her ride-alongs with the Chicago P.D., and what she thinks The L Word did for her career.

The Chicago Code airs on Mondays at 9/8c on FOX.

For the full interview, click the audio link above or download from iTunes

What was it about this part that made you want to return to series television?

Jennifer Beals: I found it so interesting to play somebody who was walking into uncharted territory, in a way. She’s really creating the template for this job, being the first female superintendent. I just thought it would be very interesting to take that walk into what kind of a leader does she become in that position, and how do you balance your personal life with the demands of that kind of job.

I thought the relationship to Jarek was also interesting. It’s a very interesting line that we walk between intimacy and respect and being able to tell the truth to one another and goading one another and making each other laugh. I just thought that could potentially be interesting. Of course, for me, working with Shawn Ryan was a real lure because I really admire his writing and I admire the way that he works with his team of writers as well.

We’ve seen so far a really great dichotomy in Teresa’s strengths but also her vulnerability at times, and so far, it’s always been on the job. So I’m wondering, this season, do we ever get to see her out of her uniform so to speak, like in her personal life

Jennifer Beals: There is an episode where it deals with her family, and so you do see her personal life in that episode. You do get little glimpses of it every now and again, but really, this is a person who has dedicated everything to their job for better or for worse. Towards the end of the season, you start to see the toll that that takes on her personally.

Is that something that you enjoy as an actor, like tapping into the challenge of bringing it all into the office so to speak?

Jennifer Beals: Yes. At times, it gets grueling. There are times I just wish they had a scene with me drunk and at a bar—that would be great—or karaoke or something. It gets grueling, and it made me realize that for her it’s got to be grueling

Could you just talk a little bit about what you think The L Word did for your career? Did it change the way that you thought about TV or different roles that became available to you?

Jennifer Beals: It certainly prepared me for this role. Playing Bette Porter, somebody who was so driven and single minded sometimes and very strong and righteous at times, certainly helped prepare me for this role. Definitely, Teresa is much more physically confident than Bette is, and, as far as I can tell so far, is deeply heterosexual.

But being part of The L Word made me realize how much more television can be that what I had experienced in my lifetime in terms of being able to be of service to people. I had so many fans come up to me who were really deeply appreciative of the show and what it had meant for them and their own sense of identity and their own sense of inclusion in our society and in our culture.

I was wondering how important it was for you that this was set in Chicago, and if that sort of helped you in your decision to do it?

Jennifer Beals: I said to my manager when pilot season came up last year, I said, “You basically have two cities; you have Vancouver and Chicago,” because those are the places that I can imagine spending long periods of time with my family. So when this series came up, I was very excited. I was very excited because of Shawn and the part and because I got to go back to my hometown, because I love the city. I think it’s so beautiful, and the people are so great.



What kind of research you were able to do with the police in Chicago and how they work?

Jennifer Beals: We were able to do ride-alongs with a homicide detective. So you could go all out all night in a car in a Kevlar vest. You sign a piece of paper, and you’re able to see all kinds of things. You get to see what they deal with day in and day out, how to set up a crime scene. We got to go to the shooting range. I was able to talk to some people who had more administrative positions to try to understand what that part of my job would be like. There are lots of things on the Internet. The Superintendent of Chicago has a blog that he has for everybody; that’s accessible to everybody. I started boxing … to get more into the physicality of it, the sort of aggressive kind of yang thing that can go on.

What did you see when you did your nights riding along?

Jennifer Beals: Well I saw lots of things. On the more comic side was a woman who refused to put her shirt on in a fried chicken restaurant. She just kept taking her shirt off. She clearly had not been taking her meds, and she thought I was Obama’s sister and that I should somehow save her.

On the more tragic side was … being the first to respond to a man who had been shot, who was about to bleed to unconsciousness on somebody’s front stoop, and watching how— The ambulances weren’t the first to arrive. It was really the fire department. I mean, the police were the first to arrive, but the ambulances didn’t get there for, gosh, I don’t know, like 20 minutes or something. Had this person been relying simply on the ambulances, they probably would’ve died, but the fire department came and helped him medically.

At that time, I was able to see how the police department sets up a crime scene, being able to follow the trail of blood to figure out where he would’ve been shot, where the shooter would’ve been, and looking for the evidence of shell casings, which I helped the detectives find.

Since Teresa’s such a strong character, in what ways does she test your own strength in new ways?

Jennifer Beals: The notion again—I think somebody asked the question earlier of having to devote everything to this job, having to live that within the part. I think testing my own strength of having to suppress what are stereotypically more feminine kinds of values, or female values, like nurturing and inclusion and all these things. Because I think really early on in her leadership, as much as she’d like to be inclusive, as much as she’d like to share information, she doesn’t, because it would be perceived as weak and could perhaps put her in a position of weakness, because that is not the nature of the system that she is now a part of. That was trying sometimes to maintain some kind of balance between more masculine values and feminine values. That was really trying sometimes.

Can you talk about specifically the role of a woman in the role that your character’s playing? Did you talk to other women who were in roles of power in Chicago or just in the police force in general?



Jennifer Beals: I did talk to other women. Obviously, it’s a very interesting position to be a woman who’s in charge of a department or several bureaus who are primarily men and even to ascend to the point where she’s even been nominated for the position because certainly she doesn’t get—I don’t think anybody intended for her to initially have this position. There were two other men, older men, who had the position before her and through their own misfortune, she ended up actually becoming superintendent. I really believe that she was probably the token candidate and then is believed to be potentially a puppet for some of the aldermen. They are surprised by the fact that she’s not a puppet, or not the kind of puppet that they would want certainly.

Having said that, her ascension, I think, comes through expertise. She’s been in I think lots of different of departments within the Chicago Police Department. She’s started out as an officer, as a beat cop, was in tactical, was in homicide. She knows a lot of different departments, which is a feasible idea. So I think that she does have a great deal of respect among her fellow officers, but you would be naïve to think that to be able to ascend to that kind of level isn’t without a cost. She’s got to be a bit of a bad … to run that gamete, and I think it’s cost her her personal life. Everything is about this job, and I think it’s—if we’re fortunate enough to be picked up, you’ll see even more how problematic that is.

Superintendent of the police is a very important position for a woman. Do you feel you were up to the challenges of the role and were there any reservations when you first received the script?

Jennifer Beals: If I didn’t feel I was up to the challenges of the role, I certainly wouldn’t have taken it because I wouldn’t want to disappoint myself or anybody else. I knew that I had a great writing team, and I knew that with John Folino, Detective Folino, as our technical advisor that I would have a lot of help in terms of preparing for the role.

So even though in the beginning of shooting I was really sometimes at a loss of what to do— Because to try to comprehend the role is pretty extraordinary. There is so much that the superintendent does, and to be the first female superintendent is a lot to take on your plate. So there were so many things that I had questions about that nobody could answer for me, because there had never been a female superintendent in Chicago. So I, like Teresa, was kind of making things up as I went along trying to find my way.

I just thought it was a great part, and I think Shawn is an amazing writer and leader. So I had no reservations about it at all.

The show will bring in various directors over the course of the season. What is that like for you as an actress? Does it kind of bring a fresh taste to the series each time a new pair of eyes are on it?

Jennifer Beals: Yes. It’s fun. We had lots of great directors on The L Word as well. It’s fun. You get to experience your character sometimes in a new way. You get a fresh pair of eyes on the city and on the relationships within the show. So it’s a lot of fun.

With all of the outdoor shots that you guys do on the show, do you end up doing a lot of ADR with that? What’s your schedule like as far as that goes?

Jennifer Beals: I haven’t done a lot of ADR, not so far, and we’ve being doing ADR for stuff that’s inside too, frankly. Actually, I’m just thinking back to my last ADR session. There was quite a few scenes that were outside that needed to be looped, and that’s fine. I’m one of those weird actors that really enjoys looping. I get a kick out of it. I think sometimes you can make a scene better if you really pay attention.[b]
