Who's in it? Teri Reeves as Hallie (from left), David Eigenberg as Christopher Hermann, Charlie Barnett as Peter Mills, Lauren German as Leslie Shay, Monica Raymund as Gabriella Dawson, Taylor Kinney as Kelly Severide, Jesse Spencer as Matthew Casey, Eamonn Walker as Battalion Chief Walter Boden, Merle Dandridge as Kay Fitori. What it's about: The members of Chicago Firehouse 51 put their lives on the line every day, and we're getting a look at their professional and personal lives in this drama Dick Wolf ("Law & Order"), Derek Haas ("3:10 to Yuma"), Michael Brandt ("3:10 to Yuma"), Peter Jankowski ("Law & Order") and Danielle Gelber. How long before I bail? I'm sure it won't be as ground-breaking as "Rescue Me," but with Kinney ("The Vampire Diaries") and Spencer ("House M.D.") together and a Chicago setting, I'm all in for the full run.
