codeblack930smallThere are a lot of police procedurals on TV currently and have been for years. There’ve been a good number of medical dramas as well, although there aren’t a ton of those on right now. For me, I’ve been missing a really good medical drama (that hasn’t become totally a soap opera) since ER went off the air. I have hopes that tonight’s premiere of Code Black will fill that whole in my TV lineup.

Based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, it’s centered around the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation – Angels Memorial in Los Angeles –where the staggering number of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses – creating a condition known as Code Black. Marcia Gay Harden plays Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish, known for performing high-risk procedures in Center Stage, the trauma area reserved for the most critical cases. Her four new first-year residents are Christa Lorenson (Bonnie Somerville), Malaya Pineda (Melanie Kannokada), Mario Savetti (Benjamin Hollingsworth), and Angus Leighton (Harry M. Ford). Leanne’s confidante, Jesse Sallander (Luis Guzman), is an amiable seen-it-all senior nurse who manages the residents. Raza Jaffrey plays Dr. Neal Hudson, an excellent physician who sometimes disagrees with Leanne’s “cowboy” approach, while William Allen Young plays Dr. Rollie Guthrie, the energetic, longest-serving attending in the ER.

I’ve seen tonight’s premiere, and it’s really a great hour of television. You’ll be missing out if you don’t at least check it out.

On tonight’s episode, “Pilot,” Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish puts her four new first-year residents to work immediately on their first day at Angels Memorial Hospital, in the busiest ER in the nation.

Meet the new doctors tonight on CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll be watching/DVRing The Mysteries of Laura, Rosewood, Steampunk’d, The Goldbergs, Criminal Minds, Law & Order: SVU, Modern Family, Worst Cooks in America, black-ish, & Chicago PD.
Jump with us to see else we think you should watch.

chicagopd930smallChicago PD had an emotional rollercoaster of a season last year that left us reeling from Nadia’s death and Lindsay’s resignation from the team. I was left with my jaw on the floor and very upset because Lindsay needs to be with Voight – her mother is a total nutcase. This is definitely in the top 5 of my favorite dramas, which, if you have been following me all these years, you know that it takes a lot to be in my favorites because I LOVE a lot of shows! If you haven’t been tuning in to this drama, you are missing out on the best installment in the franchise, so do me a favor and give it a try tonight for the season premiere.

On tonight’s premiere, “Life is Fluid,” Intelligence pursues heroin kingpin Derek Keyes; Lindsay’s downward spiral continues; Olinsky tells Platt about a secret from his past; Roman talks to Burgess about his concerns regarding Ruzek.

To see if Lindsay can pull out of this disaster spiral before it’s too late, tune in to CBS at 10/9c.

I’ll also be watching Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, black-ish, Code Black, Rosewood, Empire, and My Big Fat Fabulous Life.
