#ChicagoPD & #ChicagoFire Got Together for a Google Hangout

No, that's not the beginning of a good joke, but it sure sounds like one, doesn't it?

If all goes well, I'll soon be recapping Chicago P.D. at an outlet near you. Most of you already know I'm a big fan of Chicago Fire and I'm happy to report the same humanity that runs throughout the writing of that fabulous show carried onto its sister. 

It was a difficult battle redeeming Voight after his initial run on Chicago Fire, but they've come up with a plausible atonement, although I can only hope it's a short-lived journey as it will grow old rather quickly. You can only beat a man's face into the ground for so long while still expecting audiences to accept him as a viable leader.

That's all for another time, however, as the point of this is to share with you the Google Hangout (the entirety of which I've embedded below) that was held at the Museum of Broadcast Communications in Chicago. The sound and lighting leave a lot to be desired (surprising considering where it was held, right?), but the content is entertaining.

In case you didn't know, most network broadcasting returns this week after the Olympics (hallelujah!), and there will be a crossover event between Law and Order: SVU and Chicago P.D., bringing a third NBC program into the Chicago family. It's being promoted as "a case so big it needs two teams to solve it." You can read more about it at Lost Remote.  At the TCAs in January, Dick Wolf teased that there will be a crossover event at the end of the season with a case so big it will involve everyone. That will be a giant social media event and one we won't want to miss!

If you don't laugh out loud while watching this video at least once, there's something wrong with you. Hey --I'm just pointing out the obvious. They make work seem like fun. Turn up your sound (and turn down the lights); the TWO microphones provided for the five individuals don't quite do the trick. Without further ado...
