[ # ] Code Black has a pulse
September 30th, 2015 under CBS


Code Black is the newest medical drama on television and the show that debuts on CBS tonight at 10p is a lot like ER on 5 Red Bulls.
When I watched Code Black at the beginning of the summer, I hated the show. I thought it was all action and no emotion. As in there are so many cases that you can’t emotionally get involved in any of them, so how can you get emotionally attached to the show. Then I re-watched it, and I was able to get more emotionally involved with some of the cases. I think if they eliminate at least one case per episode, the show has a chance of becoming a hit. If they keep it at this rate, I think people will get tired of it because it is exhausting.
Code Black follows four first year interns (Benjamin Hollingsworth, Bonnie Somerville, Melanie Chandra and Harry Ford) working at Angels Memorial Hospital in Los Angeles. It is one of the busiest ERs in the country. Code Black is when there are more patients than resources and that happens about 300 times a year there. Each week they will have to deal with being at Code Black and try not to kill any of their patients.
They will have help from Mama (Luis Guzman), a caring senior nurse, and Papa (Marcia Gay Harden), a tough doctor who will do anything to save her patients. There there is their cousin, Dr Hudson (Raza Jaffrey), who is the calm one in the storm. But the kids always listen to their parents, who are the best actors on the show and keep it from going flatline.
So if you want a medical drama on Speed, then Code Back is for you. I think that Code Black is on life support for the time being and it can either way. It is up to you, to help decide if CBS should pull the plug or not.
