Pilot Review: Chicago Justice

Chicago Justice (Sundays at 9:00 on NBC; Beginning March 5)

It would be redundant to recommend Chicago Justice or not. I highly doubt anyone tuning into tonight's premiere cares about the quality of the writing, direction, or performances. Fans of the Chicago franchise don't need an outsider weighing in on the successes or failures of the newest addition to Dick Wolf's alternate urban reality, because they're going to watch Chicago Justice regardless. Those who aren't currently invested in the adventures of at least one other Chicago department probably don't care much about dropping in on this particular iteration either. But if you're one of the few who doesn't care about the Chicago shows and is just genuinely curious about the prospects of a legal procedural set somewhere other than the two coasts, know this: you're not missing much by passing on this or any other Windy City division.
