Jennifer Beals todavía no ha podido ser contactada para comentar, pero hay algunos artículos interesantes escritos en torno a la cancelación y también una entrevista interesante con Shawn Ryan.
Todos comentan que fue un buen show, un beneficio importante para la ciudad de Chicago, que la crtítica ha sido siempre muy positiva, pero que por desgracia a pesar de tener una media de 6 millones de espectadores, no lograba llegar al público más joven (por ser un show más o menos serio). Shawn Ryan dice que está buscando alternativas con otros canales, pero que sería muy difícil conseguirlo

New TV pilots could plug void left by 'Code' cancelation
May 11, 2011
By Nina Metz and Steve Johnson
Tribune reporters

On the bright side, Chicagoans will no longer have to get worked up about non-existent street locations, Jason Clarke's accent or the "Irish mob."

On the dark side, the news that Fox won't renew "The Chicago Code," the Shawn Ryan-helmed police drama set and shot here, means a whole lot of potential Chicago film industry paychecks won't be cut later this year.

It's a loss, officials said, but it's not as if the city will be bereft of TV work, as might have been the case if a cancellation like this one had come five years ago. They painted a rosy picture of filming in the area and of "Code's" impact during its brief time here.

"We're very disappointed," said Betsy Steinberg, managing director of the Illinois Film Office, "but there are lot of very positive take-aways. When Shawn Ryan decides to set a show in your town, that's a big deal. The upside is that the show was super-high-profile because he is so revered in the TV industry."

Ryan, the writer/producer from Rockford who gained prominence and Emmy Awards while creating and running "The Shield," spilled the beans to HitFix.com late Tuesday: "Code," which had long been considered to be "on the bubble" for renewal, would not be picked up for next season.

Although mostly well-liked by critics, it never found a large audience or even a growing one as it ran for 11 episodes this year. The final two are slated to run in the regular timeslot the next two Mondays, Ryan tweeted, saying viewers should find a "satisfying" story resolution.

Monday's episode drew 5.7 million viewers and 4 percent of the adults age 18-49 who were watching TV. That's down from the 7.4 million and 6 percent who saw the second episode in February, although in general more people watch TV in February than in May.

Ryan did not immediately respond to an interview request, but his most direct comment on Twitter (where his avatar is Illinois in outline, the word "Rockford" beneath it) he acknowledged ratings just weren't there.

"It is a good show, the fox suits just don't see it," someone wrote. "Fox suits loved the show," Ryan responded, "but have a business to run."

Later he found time for some gallows humor as his show found itself among Twitter's most popular topics of the moment: "Hey! #ChicagoCode is trending! Oh, wait ..."

And this: "Only good news about #TheChicagoCode cancellation: Now I have time to guest star on the Season Finale of The Office with everyone else."

Jennifer Beals, who plays a new female police superintendent trying to bring down Delroy Lindo's corrupt alderman, had rented a home back in her hometown of Chicago during the TV season, staying well beyond the end of filming late last year.

She could not be reached Wednesday but said in a March interview that she would likely move on if the show was not renewed.

"No sadness … just gratitude," tweeted Matt Lauria, who played a young cop under the wing of Clarke's hard-boiled, Polish-American veteran detective.

The show drew some criticism locally for its insistence that the "Irish mob" was Chicago's crime problem, and for what some thought were flaws in the Chicago accent of Clarke, a native of Australia.

But in filming conducted from August through December, "Code" also presented one of the most complete looks at the city of any entertainment shot here, visiting not just Loop "L" platforms and the lakefront but working-class neighborhoods, abandoned lots and back alleys. And it strived to give the series, and the city, an epic, cinematic look.

The Illinois Film Office estimates that "The Chicago Code" spent about $25 million locally and created 400 jobs. Chicago Film Office Director Rich Moskal said each episode cost roughly $2 million to produce.

But because another series is currently in town shooting, the hole left by the cancellation of the Fox series won't be quite so gaping. Moskal said he believes "Boss," the new Starz series starring Kelsey Grammer as a fictional Chicago mayor, spends about $2 million per episode, as well.

"Boss," tentatively set to air in October, is shooting fewer episodes — eight, compared with "The Chicago Codes'" 13 this season (and what could have been 20-plus for next season) — but the economic impact will be substantial nonetheless.

Shawn Ryan: "I Don't Want to Be a Dinosaur"
by Maria Elena Fernandez

Ryan got bad news from Fox Tuesday about his critically acclaimed cop show. He talks to Maria Elena Fernandez about the tabloidization of the TV business.

As the broadcast networks decide on their new schedules, some people get good news, and some get bad news. Shawn Ryan, one of Hollywood's most respected TV writers and producers, was getting ready for dinner Tuesday night when Fox President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly called him. His freshman drama, The Chicago Code, was being canceled, just six months after FX put an end to his other series, Terriers. Ryan, who took the news like a trooper, is already looking to a future that might possibly merge his gritty, realistic sensibility with gossip magazine fodder.



It's such a shame. The Chicago Code was a good show.

I thought we had a good run and I'm really proud of the last two episodes that are still to air. It's a very tough time in the TV biz right now. And the days of just worrying about the quality of the show and being able to be super patient and giving it a couple of years to grow... those days are gone. All you can do is try your best and make the shows as good as you can. And you're just at the mercy of the viewing public.

How have you been spending the day today?

I found out around dinner time last night that the show had been canceled so I had enough time to send emails out to the actors, and the writers, and the crew so that they heard it from me first. So I didn't have a lot of time to call everyone. So I've been spending a lot of time today just trying to call everyone and thank them for their work and everything.

How exactly did you hear?

I got a call directly from [Fox President of Entertainment]] Kevin Reilly. He's a class act and I appreciated hearing directly from him and hearing some of his reasoning. He and I go way back and have a lot of respect for each other. That was a class act on his part to call me directly.

We had just turned in a document last week that talked about what we imagined happening on Season 2. And we had turned it in earlier that day. So I thought Kevin was calling to talk about that document and I was ready to go into sales mode. Instead, he quickly and with a very clean cut, delivered the bad news.

Did he even read that document?


He actually liked it quite a bit.

What was his reasoning for the cancellation then?

It was about burrowing really deep into the numbers. There was a concern about the age of the viewers of this show. It's very difficult to make a show skew younger. If they were to grow the show, they would have to grow it younger. It is what it is.

It's interesting. It's given me a lot to think about going forward. It's such a tabloid age that we live in. And there seems to be this psychic connection between some of the more successful shows and the tabloid nature of them. You know, the way that Dancing With the Stars, and Jersey Shore and even Glee to a certain extent. The shows almost serve to sell magazines and the magazines almost serve to advertise the shows, if that makes sense. And The Chicago Code wasn't that kind of show. It wasn't a tabloid-friendly kind of show. We took the subject matter seriously and we presented it the best way we could. But people have a lot of options and it just didn't break through.

Were you surprised with the decision?

I was clinging to that hope as well. I had given ourselves a 40 percent chance of being picked up in my own mind. So I can't say that I was shocked but I was holding on to some significant hope that we would get the benefit of the doubt. But we didn't.

Is there any chance you might resurrect it elsewhere?

I was talking to some of the 20th people today and there are conversations happening today to see if there's a possibility. Those moves are always difficult. So I wouldn't say it's likely but I'm sure we'll investigate all possibilities.

What's next for you? Do you even know?

I do have one more thing in the Fox family, which is a pilot for FX that one of my Chicago Code writers, Davey Holmes, is writing. That's being developed under my deal and we'll probably turn in a script to FX within the next month and see where that goes.

And then I start a new deal with Sony on June 1 that will allow me to develop in the cable and network arenas. And if we can't find a savior for Chicago Code, this will be the first extended period of time I've had in a long time without a show either in production or prep, so I'll use that time to re-charge myself artistically and try to come up with some new ideas.

You talked about how the business is changing. It's hard to even picture, considering the kinds of shows that you've done, but do you envision getting yourself to a creative place where you can do a show that US Weekly is going to care about?

(Laughs) I don't know. You can't achieve much success chasing what you think works in a crass manner. I still will approach these things from what is the story I'd love to tell and what's the story I'd love to work seven years on? Having said that, I do want to open my mind. I think there is a change going on in the TV landscape right now—not necessarily all for the best. But it is going on and I don't want to be a dinosaur that's stuck in his ways and can't evolve with the industry. So I'll spend a lot of time looking around at what is working and the things that didn't work and opening my mind to see what comes out of it.

Considering what's happened, you don't sound like you've got your head in the sand.

This is just my Midwestern upbringing. I try not to get too big-headed when things are going well and I try not to get too depressed when things aren't going well. I've come to accept that I can only control the things I can control. In the case of both Terriers and The Chicago Code, I am very proud creatively of both those shows and the fact that we didn't get enough audience to get a second season for either, is very disappointing. But I tend to feel worse for the actors and the crews on those two shows who did great work because I know I'm going to get a lot of other opportunities to work on other things. So I feel more compassion for them than I feel sorry for myself.

To have had the critical and commercial success that I did with The Shield, I always knew in the back of my head, going forward, that not every experience was going to be like that. I always knew there would be big disappointments along the way. So I've prepped myself for years for the idea that I'm not necessarily the golden child where everything I touch turns to magic. So a night like last night, I can approach it logically and understand that as disappointing as that it is, it presents an opportunity to do new things. And even if we came back, we would have immediately been in the bubble and in the same position. So I tell myself, this is an opportunity to do something bigger and better.

You know. I shared a building a couple of years ago with Chris Lloyd and Steve Levitan and I remember talking to them when Back to You was canceled by Fox. And they took that opportunity to re-group and they came up with Modern Family, which is a huge success on every level. So I'll try to use them as an inspiration of how they rebounded back from a disappointing cancellation to create something that was really relevant and successful. And we'll see if we can do something like that.

There are two episodes left of The Chicago Code. Are fans going to be frustrated when it's over, or will there some kind of closure?

I don't want to give away too much but I don't think people will be frustrated. We wanted to have an ending of sorts. We were prepared, certainly, for the story to continue to Season 2. But I think fans of the show will like these two episodes quite a bit.

primeros artículos sobre CHICAGO CODE y JB desde UK - apuntan un buen nivel de audiencia




http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-interviews/2011/05/15/flashdance-star-jennifer-beals-on-her-gritty-new-role-as-a-chief-of-police-86908-23132378/

Flashdance star Jennifer Beals on her gritty new role as a chief of police

May 15 2011 Jenny Eden, Sunday Mail

WHEN most Hollywood actors go for a ride along with the police they are lucky to see more action than a speeding ticket.

Tucked away in the back of a control car they get a safe, sanitised view of the world their shows are set in.

Not Jennifer Beals.

She got a waiver to sign, a stab-proof vest and a lesson on how to collect bullet casings at the scene of a gang shooting. But then her new series, The Chicago Code, is set in one of America's most violent cities and in a world Jennifer is all too familiar with. It's not just a location for her new TV series - growing up, it's also the place she called home.

The 47-year-old actress said: "It was not the first time that I've seen bullet holes in cars. It's not the first time that I've seen shell casings, and it's frankly not the first time I've seen anybody shot. It's not so shocking. I grew up on the south side of Chicago."

Her brush with brutal reality researching The Chicago Code came when the homicide cops she was shadowing were first at the scene of the shooting - finding the victim bleeding out on the street.

She said: "What was shocking was that there was a group gathered around this man who were all very upset that he had been shot and it was really clear that there were people there who knew who had shot him and that it was a gang-related incident, but that nobody would come forward with any information. To see six-year-old children playing in the street at 2am a block away from drug dealers - that's also shocking.

"I was able to see how the police department set 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 have been and looking for the evidence of shell casings, which I helped the detectives find."

It wasn't her only encounter with life on the streets when another call-out left them trying to help a mentally ill woman who was running amok.

She said: "She kept taking her shirt off and refusing to put it back on. She clearly had not been taking her meds, and she thought I was Obama's sister and that I should somehow save her."

Despite what she saw at first-hand Jennifer was thrilled to find a role in a gritty TV series that could take her back home with her family - her Canadian businessman husband Ken Dixon and five-year-old daughter Ella. She plays Superintendent Teresa Colvin, the city's first-ever female police chief.

The show also stars Australian actor Jason Clarke and veteran Delroy Lindo and, unusually for US TV, it was really filmed in the city where it was set, using some of the toughest areas as locations.

That's no real surprise given The Chicago Code's creator, Shawn Ryan, was also the man behind brutally realistic, award-winning cop show The Shield. It was never going to sugar-coat the city but her walk on the wild side hasn't diminished her love of it and she says she could easily call it home again.

She said: "I feel such a great love for Chicago. I am protective of it, the city is so beautiful and the people are so great. My mum is still there and my friends. I told my manager that it was one of two cities I could imagine spending long periods of time with my family."

Jennifer was drawn away from her home town when she landed the lead role in classic 1980s movie, Flashdance. She had been studying at Yale when the chance to play Alex Owens - a welder by day and exotic dancer by night came up.

Before then she had played one minor movie role and suddenly found herself a major star with one of the biggest-grossing films of the year and an Oscar-winning soundtrack. But rather than capitalise on the hit film, she turned down roles in order to stay at university, where she majored in American literature.

Her next big career move came when she played Ivy League-educated lesbian Bette Porter in The L Word for six seasons. Her work on the series saw her nominated for a number of awards, including gay and lesbian groups.

She has joked that the show turned her into an honorary lesbian because of the impact it had on the gay community but she admits at the time she had no idea how significant the lesbian drama would be, or that it would take up five years of her life.

She said: "I am proud to have been a part of the show. I have 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.

"We made a whole community visible. It is not often you get to make that kind of impact. It's affected me personally because I've come in contact with women who have the bravery to be out in the world with their sexuality. I didn't pay attention to gay issues before the show but now I take them more personally."

She is hoping her role as Teresa Colvin could also make an impact on women. She has studied Hillary Clinton, who sat with US President Barack Obama watching the live feed of Osama Bin Laden being shot, to see how strong, powerful women handle themselves but she admits she doesn't envy Hillary her job.

She joked: "I would last about a week then I would lose my mind."

Jennifer, whose credits also include playing Tim Roth's wife in another Sky1 hit show, Lie To Me, and starring in post-apocalyptic movie The Book of Eli opposite Denzel Washington, credits her own upbringing with helping her slip so effortlessly into playing strong women. Her father died when she was nine and she was brought up by her mum.

She said: "I just assumed that I should have the same rights and access to things like baseball bats and field time. Maybe it was the amount of time my mum spent reading Greek myths to me, the whole literature about the goddess somehow permeated and there's an element of power there."

And just to make sure she didn't fall short for The Chicago Code, she not only practiced at the gun range but also took boxing lessons to make sure she was in great shape and ready to slug it out with the boys.

She laughed: "I took up boxing because it is such a masculine thing to do, to want to punch people - I've never wanted to be hit in the head. But it is very hard and I completely gave it up when the show was done."

The Chicago Code is on Sky1 on Thursday at 9pm.

Luck of the draw

Jennifer got her big break in top, hit 80s movie Flashdance, where she played a welder by day and exotic dancer by as night. She also starred Bette Porter in The L Word for five years.

una explicación que no dice nada realmente..

http://www.assignmentx.com/2011/breaking-news-fox-talks-about-canceling-human-target-lie-to-me-the-chicago-code-and-others/
Breaking News: Fox talks about canceling HUMAN TARGET, LIE TO ME, THE CHICAGO CODE and others

It’s a tough TV business, and every year fan favorite shows get the boot in favor of new shows that sometimes don’t live up to the potential of the departing series.

This year, Fox canceled many fan favorites including the three season LIE TO ME, the two season HUMAN TARGET and THE CHICAGO CODE and the comedies TRAFFIC LIGHT and BREAKING IN.

While speaking to the press today about their Fall 2011 and Mid-season 2012 schedules, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly spoke about major casualties this year at the network and why they had to make these hard decisions.

“I think we were pretty candid that a couple of the shows we had to let go was because we didn’t have shelf space and they probably would have made the cut at other networks,” says Reilly. “We could have been more conservative this year, but we wanted to take our core strength now and seed in new shows for the next chapter. We gave those shows a shot and now its time to try some new ones.”

In terms of how they determined the new bumper crop of shows, Fox Entertainment Chairman Peter Rice admits that Fox is quite different from their competitors.

“We have very vibrant franchises and a vast diversity of shows from reality, animation, comedy and drama so we’re very selective what we bring on,” says Rice. “We have a very strong schedule for next year even though we’re sad to see these other shows leaving.”

crónica de los esfueroz de los fans para intentar salvar a Chicago Code de la cancelación e instrucciones de cómo mostrar el apoyo

Saving 'The Chicago Code' - The Fans' Story
May 16th, 2011 11:10am

FOX's The Chicago Code is an outstanding series. What's equally worth talking about are similarly great efforts of its fans to save it. It's my pleasure to bring you my insider's blog as the fans fight to bring The Chicago Code back.

The Chicago Code

Day 0

Late Tuesday, May 10, 2011, word leaked that The Chicago Code would be no more. FOX's decision to axe the drama came as a surprise; its ratings had gone up 7% just the night before, and with no shortage of critical praise, it had been considered the strongest of the network's "bubble" shows. Surprise quickly turned to anger for the show's devoted fan base, who had been supporting the series all season long and swung into another gear to protest the cancellation.

Day 1

By Wednesday morning, Ashli Garza had launched a Facebook page to Bring The Chicago Code Back http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bring-The-Chicago-Code-Back/144366698969024 , and it had become the hub for a rapidly forming fan effort. The page had over 1,000 likes in the first 24 hours and that number is growing.

Fans dug up contact information for FOX President of Entertainment Kevin Reilly http://www.examiner.com/the-chicago-code-in-national/how-to-help-save-the-chicago-code , the man who had broken the news to series creator Shawn Ryan, and immediately began to call, email and write on behalf of their series. This was no small effort: as one fan noted on Facebook, when he called Reilly's office, the exec's assistant told him she'd been fielding a lot of calls like his that day...

I had the unfortunate task of posting the news on the show's fansite, ChicagoCodeFan.com http://chicagocodefan.com/ , and even I got plenty of comments from upset fans. I didn't have time to answer them all, however, because I was one of those people contacting Reilly's office, and busy giving my best eulogy for both Chicago Code and my other favorite series, Human Target http://www.starpulse.com/news/Brittany_Frederick/2011/05/11/dearly_departed_eulogizing_the_chicago . That commentary now has over a hundred "likes" on Facebook and double digits in comments.

Writing that piece was when I knew this was going to be something different. I've loved and lost quite a few shows over the decades I've been watching TV (RIP, Sports Night, K-Ville, Traveler, Keen Eddie...), and every time I've certainly wished it wasn't so. Many a cancelled show has had a fan outcry over it. Yet this is a different show, and these are different fans. The Chicago Code was more than a TV show for many of us; it was not just entertainment but something that affected us, or represented our city, or made us think. As a result, the show's fans are some of the most dedicated I've ever seen.

That was when I knew I had to start keeping a blog. Win or lose, I knew this was a story that needed to be told.

Day 2

Good news and bad news on Thursday. Word broke that Matt Lauria http://www.starpulse.com/news/Brittany_Frederick/2011/05/13/the_chicago_codes_matt_lauria_moves_to , who so well portrayed Caleb Evers on Chicago Code, had booked a guest role on USA's Burn Notice that might become a recurring part.

This was obviously good for Matt, and as such it was hard not to be excited, especially since he was moving to another great series. At the same time, many fans wondered if this meant he would be unavailable to return to playing Caleb should The Chicago Code make a comeback.

The honest answer is it's too soon to tell.

Meanwhile, an online petition http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/keep-chicago-strong-save-the-chicago-code/ to save the show continued to circulate across Facebook and Twitter, and amass over a thousand signatures in its first 48 hours. And still another plot was brewing: in the vein of many fan drives past, what to send to FOX along with our letters...? Stay tuned.

Day 3

A shout-out to Cathy and her fellow fans of TNT's also axed, also resurrected cop show Southland: upon hearing of our similar plight, they were willing to step up and help me with getting the word out to save Chicago Code. Having the support of fans who have already run a successful campaign was a huge, huge blessing.

This prompted a discussion amongst the fans: would another network take our show? Should we be writing to other channels than just FOX? The agreement was that we certainly should, but perhaps best to wait until we knew which networks had any interest, rather than expending too much effort writing to every single one out there. Knowing that Shawn Ryan was exploring that same possibility himself, we agreed to sit back and wait, hoping to find a network that would listen to him - and to us.

Day 4

Discovered tonight that Todd Williams, who plays Isaac Joiner, tweeted me to thank me for the support. That made my day.

Day 5

This is the first day I've had to sit back and look at all the website comments, tweets and emails I've gotten from Chicago Code fans over the past week. The outpouring of love for the show has been overwhelming. I'm blessed in that the fans recognize how much I love the show as well - they've asked me to be a major part of this effort, which I'm all too proud to participate in. For my part, I am as big a fan of the show as anyone, and if I can use my platform in the media to help it survive, I want to. The show and everyone involved in it have earned that.

The last week has certainly been an interesting experience for me, from an emotional standpoint. It's one thing to be a journalist and just report the facts of a show's cancellation. It's another for it to be a show I deeply love personally and that I know is comprised of wonderful people. And it's surreal to be running the fansite, posting promos and news, knowing it might be some of the last we ever see.

Cancellations always are horrible in my job, but they happen, and most of the time I accept them. I know that this is a business. I know that in the grand scheme of things it's not the end of the world. As dearly as I loved Human Target, I saw the writing on the wall a few months ago and I've had time to make peace with it coming to an end. But when it comes to The Chicago Code, things are different.

I have a unique, painful, interesting feeling inside of me: that I am not okay with this, and I am not letting this show - not just this show, but these experiences, opportunities, these people I've met and have yet to meet - go down without a fight. I said that about Human Target last year, and I'm saying it about The Chicago Code this year. It might all mean nothing, but I can't in good conscience walk away without knowing I did everything I could.

I'm not alone in that, either. I want to share with you some of the things that have been sent to me so far from other fans:

"As a Chicagoan, it is exciting to see a show evolve around all the places I've been and things I've seen. Code and its storyline fit perfectly in Chicago, and create a character of the city itself," said Justin Schroeder, who launched the Save The Chicago Code Facebook event http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=217127558315330 . "The franchise and its fans deserve to see what another season will bring."

His sentiments are echoed by another Chicago resident, Emily Runyan. "It's interesting, thought provoking, well done and necessary TV. I hate to see TV shows that mean something being pulled off the air."

I can't think of a better quote, though, than to borrow from a letter written by Sierra Campbell: "It's a shameful reality when such great, and practically unknown actors (with the exception of Jennifer [Beals]) may never get the chance to act in these roles again."

As proud as I am of this show, which quickly became one of my favorite series ever to see air, I'm just as proud of the fans. They're not just raging against the cancellation of an hour's worth of entertainment. They're motivated by and fighting for so much more than that: what that hour of time has brought into their lives. As a writer, that impact is more priceless to me than any award or ratings numbers would ever be.

How can you get involved?

If you're a Chicago Code fan looking to join the fight, I have exactly the tools to get you started. I've written a guide on how you can help save The Chicago Code http://www.examiner.com/the-chicago-code-in-national/how-to-help-save-the-chicago-code . It tells you everything you should do, and how you can do it, to keep this great show on the air. You can also visit ChicagoCodeFan.com http://chicagocodefan.com/ .

Most importantly, you can keep watching the show live Monday nights at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX. Prove to the network that last week's ratings jump wasn't a fluke and show them that they made the wrong decision. If the numbers stay solid, that gives us more of a fighting chance.

Stay tuned for my next insider's blog as we continue to fight for The Chicago Code.

The Chicago Code 1.12 “Greylord & Gambat” Review
Posted by Brittany on May 16, 2011 in The Chicago Code

The cruel fate of The Chicago Code hasn’t dampened my goodwill towards it. Possibly because this show was written and wrapped months ago, there’s no sign of giving up or backing down.

I’ve mentioned previously how much I appreciate that this show hits the ground running, and it does: after giving us a quick, efficient catch-up on the events of last week‘s episode, we find out that Teresa’s star witness has gone missing just before he’s scheduled to testify, and Gibbons is now aware of the existence of a mole, though he doesn’t know that it’s Liam, who’s being blatantly hit on by Killian’s daughter (Shannon Lucio), whom we met the week before that. All of this happens in the first ten minutes. I’m impressed by how Virgil Williams throws all that very important information at us in such a short time, but keeps it from sounding like a “previously on” and from getting muddled. That’s talent.

The hour’s a battle between the police and the Irish mob to see who can find the missing witness first, which puts Jarek and Liam in direct opposition. Jarek is his usual tenacious self; I love that he does attention-grabbing things because that’s the right play, not because the writers are trying to make him cool, which is an easy trap many TV cops have fallen into. Pardon my language, but Jarek is a badass because he’s not trying to be a badass, nor is he written that way. He’s just good police. Having Gibbons show up at his desk in the middle of the night: yowza. Especially when Gibbons offers him the identity of his brother’s killer. Yet Jarek’s resolve never wavers. That’s why I’ve come to embrace him as a hero.

It’s Liam that has the more compelling arc, though; we know he’s got emotional scars from the arson he set, and now he’s asked to commit outright murder. Unwilling to cross that last line, he stabs his cohort instead, and knowing his time is running out, makes one last play to deliver the fatal blow to the bad guys. It’s tragic but perfectly in character that doing so gets him shot; we’ve seen ever since the arson episode that he was willing to put himself in harm’s way for justice, and that belief finally caught up to him. There’s almost a sense of beauty in it, because we know he wouldn’t be bothered by how it all turned out.

Even among the supporting characters, there are refreshing touches of depth. Lieutenant Kelly, who’s Teresa’s chief of staff but in Gibbons’ pocket, initially resists the alderman’s idea of outing an undercover cop to the Irish mob. He might be on the wrong side of the fight but he’s still a cop. He caves when Gibbons threatens his family, but it’s nice to see he’s not a one-dimensional corrupt cop. We also finally see some merit come out of Gibbons’ relationship with his assistant; up until now I’d thought it was just a throwaway subplot, but I should have known better. There’s no such thing with The Chicago Code.

Each episode of this show reveals to me something I appreciate that goes beyond its content – something that’s technically superior. This week, we were treated to how nothing in its world is black and white…but neither is it that muddled, unsatisfying mess that many shows think passes for grey. It’s not what we think is ambiguous; it really is ambiguous. I suppose the best way that I can describe it is that The Chicago Code is remarkably human. That’s a rarity I haven’t seen in a television series in a long time, and it’s a shame that it looks like I won’t see it again.

THE CHICAGO CODE 1.12 'Greylord & Gambat'
Teresa and Jarek launch a grand jury inquiry against Alderman Gibbons as Liam blows his cover in the field.
By Blair Marnell
May 19th, 2011




Episode Title: "Greylord & Gambat"
Writer: Virgil Williams
Director: Paris Barclay


Previously on "The Chicago Code":

Chicago PD Superintendent Teresa Colvin (Jennifer Beals) made it her mission to clean up Chicago's infamously dirty politics and take down Alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo). She received an early setback when Gibbons revealed that her first chief of staff tried to sell her out. But when Gibbons handpicked her new chief of staff, Lt. Kelly, Teresa was able to keep him out of the loop on the Gibbons investigation. At the same time, Detective Jarek Wysocki (Jason Clarke) and Detective Caleb Evans (Matt Lauria) investigated other criminal activity and tried to tie it back to Gibbons.

The most promising leads came from Liam Hennessey (Billy Lush), an undercover cop in the Irish mob who had gained favor with Gibbons. Liam had also witnessed his boss, Hugh Killian (Patrick St. Esprit) murder a man in front of him. With Liam's help, the police arrested a city trash truck driver named Ronnie Underwood, who was trafficking in drugs for Killian. Despite offers from Teresa and Jarek to come in, Liam insisted upon staying within the mob even as his associates began to get suspicious about his true motivations.

Story:

This is the day that Teresa Colvin has been waiting for. In front of a secretly convened grand jury, Teresa lays out the case against Gibbons and tells them about the garbage truck full of drugs driven by Ronnie Underwood for Killian, with the knowledge and cooperation of Gibbons. But Teresa overlooked one important thing: Ronnie himself, who has apparently skipped town because she didn't leave a police guard on him. She orders Jarek and Caleb to track him down. But in order to buy more time with the grand jury, Teresa admits that she has an undercover cop in the Irish mob who witnessed Killian killing a man.

Jarek and Caleb gather a small group of trusted officers to fan out and find Ronnie. Across town, Gibbons is admiring the posters for his upcoming campaign for mayor when his aide lets him know that Teresa has launched a grand jury investigation against him. Elsewhere, Elizabeth Killian asks Liam to go on a date with her. He refuses, citing Killian's objections to mixing his daughter up with the mob. However, she reveals that she's already involved with the mob as her father's accountant. When she answers Liam's phone, she finds her father on the line ordering Liam to report to him.

At the truck depot, Ronnie's brother tells Jarek that Ronnie was soliciting advice on whether he should testify or run. He also lets him know that he has a girlfriend named Penny who works at a local massage parlor. In his office, Gibbons angrily demands to know why Lt. Kelly didn't know about Teresa's plans for him. He also threatens Kelly and his family if he doesn't discover who the undercover cop in the Irish mob is. At the same time, Killian orders Mikey and Liam to locate Ronnie and Penny; which they do fairly quickly. But when Mikey makes moves to kill them both, Liam is forced to fatally stab him.

When other mob enforcers show up at Ronnie's door, Liam is able to preserve his cover momentarily and get rid of them. Unfortunately, Kelly came through for Gibbons and Liam is revealed to be Officer Chris Collier to both Gibbons and Killian. On the phone, Jarek pleads with Liam to come in, but Liam insists upon making one last play for evidence. He approaches Elizabeth and claims that Killian sent him personally because the cops are after him. As Elizabeth takes Liam to her real ledger for safekeeping, Teresa has Killian arrested and tries to get him to break.

A phone call to Elizabeth reveals that Liam is really a cop. He tries to talk her down, but she shoots him. He shoots her in return shortly before other members of the Irish mob show up and proceed to beat him mercilessly. Tracking Elizabeth's phone, Jarek and Caleb arrive and narrowly save Liam. But on the way to the hospital, Liam loses consciousness after giving Jarek Elizabeth's ledger... that implicates Gibbons directly. In the ensuing chaos, Gibbons is missing. However, Jarek finds Gibbons waiting for him at an unexpected location: his own desk in the police precinct.

The cornered Alderman wants the grand jury investigation to go away. And in return, he offers Jarek "justice" for his brother, who was murdered while on an undercover assignment years ago. Jarek barely contains his anger as he orders Gibbons to leave. But as he goes, Gibbons promises to "be in touch."

Breakdown:

If you're a fan of television, there's always going to be a show that you love that gets canceled prematurely. It's inevitable. Either through low ratings or network mismanagement, some series just don't take off. This calender year in particular was hard for me, because I already lost "Terriers," "Stargate Universe" and "Lights Out." If "The Chicago Code" could have been saved, it would have made my spring.

Because this show is everything I want from a cop drama. It has sharp writing, great characters, compelling stories... "The Chicago Code" really has it all.

But there is one bit of good news. We're going to get an ending for this series. This week's episode and next week's finale are actually going to wrap up the Alderman Gibbons storyline that's been percolating since episode one.

"Greylord & Gambat" kicked things off with a beautifully intense hour of television. It wasn't quite perfect, but it was pretty close. I do have to point out how stupid it was for Teresa and Jarek to leave Ronnie unattended and without a police escort ahead of the grand jury. Their rationale was that Killian would know Ronnie was testifying if they assigned a protective detail to him. But Killian already knew the cops had grabbed Ronnie when his truck never showed up!

It felt like this was a cheap way to manufacture some drama as the grand jury got started. Aside from that, the plot held together really well.

Billy Lush's storyline as Liam could have been a modern day "Wiseguy" just by itself. And it would have been cool to see his relationships with Mikey, Elizabeth and even Killian himself go deeper. This week's episode kind of put Liam and Elizabeth's relationship in fast forward, but I love that it ended with them both shooting each other. If she had sided with Liam over her father, it wouldn't have worked. Mikey's death was also a little rushed after seeing him with Liam so many times. However, it still made for a great moment when Liam finally betrayed him.

Delroy Lindo was also at the top of his game as we saw Gibbons descend into desperation for the first time. He's been such a cool, calculating villain for so many episodes that it was unexpected to see him so clearly rattled by the turn of events. I'd say that Teresa outsmarted him, but the major conflict came back to her again when she revealed Liam's role in the grand jury. Do cops really expose the existence of their undercover officers in the field while they can still be discovered?

After last week's episode focused on his family life (and lack there of), Jarek took a backseat for most of the hour. But Jason Clarke made the most of his confrontation with Gibbons, which may actually be the first time they've been in open conflict since the beginning of the series. For a final card to play against Jarek, bringing up his dead brother was a brilliant move by the Alderman. On this show, there's really only one person that's already been seen who could have killed Jarek's brother (and the preview for next week's episode is pretty blatant about it as well).

Regardless, the undercurrent of anger and menace from both Jarek and Gibbons was fantastic. A hero is usually only as good as his villain, but both of these characters are a cut above almost any others on TV. I'm fully invested in this show and I want to see how it all plays out. I suspect that Gibbons is going to go down, but not without a fight. And Jarek and Teresa are both probably going to pay a price for their victory.

Are there any other guesses about how this is going to play out? Feel free to weigh in below!

Crave Online Rating: 9 out of 10.

The Chicago Code: 1.13 "Mike Royko's Revenge" Review

Posted by Brittany on May 23, 2011

I knew I was going to be moved by the finale of The Chicago Code. I didn’t expect just how much.

The show set up plenty of dominoes over the season, and in another display of its trademark efficiency, starts knocking them down within minutes. We learn that Liam/Chris isn’t dead yet (just missing a spleen), Lieutenant Kelly is finally getting arrested for being a tool, and both Elizabeth Killian and not-so-innocent secretary Lily have been found. Things would be looking up for our heroes, if Alderman Gibbons wasn’t on TV calling for Teresa’s resignation, and privately trying to convince Jarek that Hugh Killian is the man who murdered his brother. You can’t say this show skimped on delivery.

The heart of the episode is bringing the fight against Gibbons to a head, if not a definitive end. Given that at the time this finale was written, the show was still very much in contention for a second season, I wondered if things would be definitively concluded or left hanging. Imagine my surprise when the episode delivered the moment we’d been waiting for all season long – seeing Teresa and Jarek publicly arrest Gibbons. It was a stand up and cheer moment that was definitely worth the wait. Yet unlike a few other finales I’ve seen this season, achieving the show’s main objective didn’t throw The Chicago Code into disarray. Instead, the journey to finally get there opened up other stories that could’ve been told…not to mention that, as well as we know Ronin Gibbons by now, it wouldn’t have been at all implausible to see him still be a relevant figure in season two.

Equally as important to the finale is Jarek’s pursuit of his brother’s murderer. The Chicago Code took what would be a meandering subplot on any other show and elevated it to the quality of a second major season-long storyline. The scene between Jarek and Teresa as he argues with her over the case is heartbreaking, because in all honesty they’re both right. What she’s saying about him risking everything they’ve worked for is true, yet at the same time, he deserves the opportunity to get justice for his brother. There’s no winner in the situation, and the expression on Jennifer Beals’ face at the conclusion of the scene perfectly shows the pain that Teresa feels, because she isn’t just looking at Jarek as a colleague but also as a close friend. Likewise, when Caleb turns up and snaps some sense back into Jarek, Matt Lauria has such a confidence about him that we realize Caleb has risen to become Jarek’s equal, and their relationship has matured to the point where Caleb would risk his own integrity to save his partner. Who didn’t smile when Jarek referred to Caleb as “a friend”?

My best actor award, though, goes unquestionably to Jason Clarke, who turns in another riveting performance. Given the kind of juicy, emotional material actors kill for, he runs with it but doesn’t oversell it. It’s all the little subleties that have endeared Clarke to me, and they’re still here, from the look in his eyes as Jarek watches Gibbons walk away, to how his grip on his gun wavers as he debates whether or not to blow Killian’s brain out the back of his skull. Finding out that Vincent was a dirty cop may be a bit cliche, but I forgive it because to me, it’s really about Jarek, and watching him not just battle with that knowledge, but have to follow his gut and go after the truth about the person he loved most. It’s what he’d do and the fact that it’s his brother doesn’t change that. And I love how the show refuses to paint Vincent with the broad stroke of a villain; he’s a man who used the wrong means for good intentions, and one still worthy of Jarek’s love and respect – and ours as well.

In more personal news, Jarek’s ex-fiancee Elena (Camille Guaty) turns up busted on a DUI. She’s got reason to be drunk: not only has she lost Jarek, but her ailing mother that we heard about in the pilot only has a few weeks left. If I were her, I’d be out of sorts and belligerent too. The moment I saw her face, I said “Why did we have to bring her up again?” and I never felt like that question was answered to my satisfaction. On one hand, her return does give me hope that Jarek can have some real happiness in his life, but on the other, given how perfectly she left – and how I’ve never felt chemistry between the two actors to begin with – I didn’t need to see her again. She was the one thing about this episode that I’ll trifle with. Still, because I love Jarek so much, I’ll pretend that he managed not to screw this second chance up.

I’m not too sure how I feel about Teresa (Jennifer Beals) pretending to be somebody else in order to pick up a random guy at a bar. I somewhat understand it – as she points out early on, her own identity comes with way too much baggage for dating – but it still feels weird to me. That, and with the return of FBI agent Cuyler (the always fab Adam Arkin), I have to admit that I was pulling for the two of them.

All in all, The Chicago Code went out the way that it came in: as a strong piece of storytelling without any hype, bolstered by some fantastic acting. In its conclusion, it continued to do what I always loved about this show, which is that it flipped the middle finger at TV expectations. When it hit a note that could have been cliche, with the exception of Elena, it turned it into something stronger and more complex. And in an age when the TV season finale has become an over-hyped affair promising shocking plot twists, character deaths, and other often gratuitous plays for attention, this show treated it like any other episode, focusing on telling a good story and remaining faithful to its characters. It didn’t need to flail for our attention; the creative team had enough confidence in themselves to know that they already had it.

I have to admit that I’m typing this while wiping away tears, for a variety of reasons. For not just one but several of the main characters, people I’ve come to love who have closure and hope in their lives after we’ve watched them sacrifice and struggle all season long. For actors who got even better as their characters got richer, because I know that they’ll probably get overlooked by critics and awards season alike. For the ideas about season two that this episode put in my head and that I know we’ll never see. And for the fans who’ve loved and lost. This is not the first time The Chicago Code has made me cry. It’s just that damn good.

It’s the end of the journey, at least for now. But should this be the definitive end, I have no regrets. No unanswered questions. No moments I wish I’d take back. No weak episodes. This is as close to perfect as I’ve seen a TV show get. If this is all we’ll get, I can look back on this not just as one fantastic season, but taking it as a whole, as one of the great journeys I’ve taken in television.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to raise a glass for Jarek Wysocki, because I feel like I should.

The Chicago Code. Tiene en común con la anterior que las dos son obra de Shawn Ryan (The Shield). El propio Ryan se quejaba hace algunos días en su Twitter de la mala suerte que ha tenido esta temporada y como parecía haberse convertido en todo un especialista en miniseries. The Chicago Code tiene muchos de los ingredientes que hace triunfar a una serie: una historia de policías, corrupción, el apoyo de una cadena como Fox (que la lanzó como su apuesta de la midseason) y un plantel de actores muy solventes (entre ellos una renacida Jennifer Beals ). De las cuatro series de las que hablamos en este post es la más floja, pero sigue mereciendo un visionado. Su problema quizá ha sido que era un drama demasiado de manual y poco innovador (las series de policías no son precisamente escasas) y algunos problemas de ritmo en el guión. Los dos últimos capítulos prometían una segunda temporada mucho más sólida.
