    TV Show Throws Out Dumpster Full Of Food — While Filming In A Food Desert
    Screen Shot 2017-12-18 at 9.09.39 PM.png
    People living in a "food desert" in North Lawndale hoped they'd be able to get basic necessities from a new corner store (left). But the store ended up being a TV set, and this week the set dumped its props — including food and cleaning supplies -- into the garbage.

    Really good pilot

    want to see how the season / series plays out since it's only one truly interesting character IMO ( the Chef)

    Definitely it's own show not like the Corner and damn sure not the Wire :lol:

    Just saw the first ep. Nothing like The Wire imo.

    Its vaguely similar in that it covers the storiss of multiple characters from children to grown folk. But hell, a lot of shows did that.

    Anyway, it was a good first ep. The cycle of killing was pretty ****ed up. Although, I don't feel bad for the kid given the scumbag move he pulled.

    As a South Sider, didn't like the sensationalized, forced campy drama of the pilot.

    Yeah they really did dive right away in to some stereotypes and cliches but it was handled/executed well.

    Having watched the pilot, I might have a hard time watching Shameless and this at the same time and look and take Shameless somewhat seriously. I know it's a comedy, but it's a reality based comedy and the tone of that vs The Chi are polar opposites in the same part of the city. Crazy how Showtime did this, but we'll see how it goes.

    I think cuz Shameless is Shameless that it'll be fine for me.

    It takes place in the same city but not the same neighborhood.
