Chicago Med (S02E14): “Cold Front”

“Cold Front” was the most intense episode of Chicago Med in a long time. With so much happening at once, it was slightly hard to follow all the patient cases, but nevertheless, it was an extremely interesting episode. The Med doctors ask one mother to make the impossible choice – save her son or nephew. Ultimately,…

Chicago PD (S04E14): “Seven Indictments”

This episode of Chicago PD was very interesting, and offered information many Chicago PD fans have been waiting for. Rixton, Adam’s temporary replacement, showed up out of the blue, and since we didn’t know much about him – until now. The crew’s suspicions about Rixon were completely normal and justified, but I truly loved Halstead’s…

Chicago Med (S02E13): “Theseus’ Ship”

“Theseus’s Ship” was a gentle, but powerful episode of Chicago Med that questioned challenging questions such as, at what age can a child decide his medical treatment? Faced with an eight year old cancer patient who had convinced his dad to allow him to stop his medication three months prior, Dr. Manning is initially outraged…

Chicago Med (S02E12): “Mirror, Mirror”

This episode of Chicago Med was incredibly interesting. Every patient brought something valuable to the episode, which is rare for Chicago Med. This proved to be very effective to bring out deeper inner problems in core characters, such as Sarah who admits to her problems in therapy at the end “Mirror, Mirror.” Subtly, Dr. Manning was also…

Chicago Med (S02E11): “Graveyard Shift”

“Graveyard Shift” was a very interesting episode for Chicago Med, that followed unusual patients and When I saw the panda reveled as the emergency patient, I literally laughed out. I was not expecting that at all. However, I thought it was a great twist and I found it very interesting to see the doctors wrap…

Chicago Med (S02E10): “Heart Matters”

“Heart Matters” was a heartwarming episode with surprisingly little stakes. The death of Kate, which kicks off this episode, posed interesting questions for Maggie – how would she react? Would her ability to work be changed by the fact that Kate had arrested her? Similar to Chicago PD‘s latest episode, I think promotion played up this…

Chicago Med (S02E09): “Uncharted Territory”

“Uncharted Territory” was fulfilling, and fresh – a great way for Chicago Med to start the new year. While I found the patient backstories interesting and different from what Med has tackled before, there were some missing pieces, especially with Dr. Choi. I felt like I couldn’t quite understand Choi’s reaction to the rival patients he was…

Chicago Med (S02E08): “Free Will”

Review: “Free Will” was full of new, intriguing patient storylines and new developments for characters we love. This episode highlighted two very different personalities – both due to the patient’s illness or life circumstance. An important reminder from this episode was: Don’t wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty, but the pig likes it. This…

Chicago Med (S02E07): “Inherent Bias”

“Inherent Bias” consistently put characters in uncomfortable places. This created lots of tension and showed different sides of fundamental characters. Sharon is presented with her first love in this episode. This creates drama between her and the other nurses. It’s a good chance to see her in a more passive situation. She still tries to…

Chicago Med (S02E06): “Alternative Medicine”

Review: “Alternative Medicine” included so many different plot lines, it felt like it would never end. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, but at the same time, there was less to focus on.  I think the strongest message that this episode got through was that you have to work hard for what you want,…

Chicago Med (S02E05): “Extreme Measures”

Chicago Med fell back into its usual patterns following multiple patients in one episode in “Extreme Measures.” In this episode, they were all interesting and very different from patients we’ve seen in the past. Again, doctors are faced with the complex issues of what is right and wrong to do for patients. Doctor Halstead makes…

Chicago Med (S02E04): “Brother’s Keeper”

Family issues create drama for the doctors of Chicago Med. When a patient arrives who is mentally out of it, it’s a legal battle between the son and girlfriend about who’s decision counts more. This is a real storyline and one I find fascinating. I do wonder what happened to the girlfriend though? Surely she…
