MY SON ASHTON UNLAND IS SO EXCITED THAT " CHICAGO FIRE" GOT PICKED UP. HE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING HIMSELF ON TV. THE CAST AND PRODUCTION CREW WAS INCREDIBLY AWESOME TO WORK WITH. HE ESPECIALLY LOVED GRETA WHO PLAYS HIS SISTER WHEN THEY GET RESCUED IN A FIRE. HE LOVED IT SO MUCH HE WANTS TO DO IT AGAIN. LOTS OF ACTION AND A DEFINATE MUST SEE.
