Chicago Fire isn't offensive, just forgettable.

For what it is -- another weekly look at flame-fighters and companion paramedics -- it's not half bad.

The new NBC series is 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.

None of [the characters are] very interesting, and it's actually kind of hard to tell them apart.
