I just got Primetime on Demand and watched “Deception” and “Chicago Fire” all episodes. I loved them and found them to be exciting, worth watching, funny, sad
and full of “can’t wait til the next episode” great actors/actresses with parts well
played.. Hope these 2 new shows will definitely continue so I can get back to
network TV and not so much cable. Looking forware to their return, hope I’m
not disappointed!
