City on Fire is a dumpster fire of a show. It tries to be a gritty murder mystery, but unfortunately ends up feeling more like a basic teen drama more than anything else. I hate to use this term, but it feels very “CW-ish.” With dull storytelling that unsuccessfully tries to connect multiple characters' stories, it just feels like it’s trying too hard, and overall, it’s filled with mediocre performances across the board. Honestly, the only thing truly going for this show is the soundtrack.
