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…

Chicago Med (S02E02): “Natural History”

Chicago Med is continuing to prove itself as NBC’s newest hit. “Natural History” brought so many different elements together in a fast paced, yet easy to follow episode. The development of a transgender character made Chicago Med much more relatable to the whole society of viewers. It was honest and real. I hope the writers…

Chicago Med (S2E2): “Win Loss”

“Win Loss” was a complicated episode of Chicago Med which had some good and bad moments. On a positive note, the character development of Dr. Reese was funny and made the whole episode a little lighter than had this not been included. Dr. Homestead is beginning to struggle financially, but the way the writers used this in the…

Chicago Med (S02E01): “Soul Care”

Chicago Med, NBC’s thrilling series began it’s second season with just the same drama viewers came to love Thursday night. “Soul Care” sent viewers on a rollercoaster of emotions for an hour, and we couldn’t have been happier for the show’s return. Viewers jump right back into the daily lives of the doctors and nurses….

Chicago Med (S1E18): “Timing”

Review: “Timing” felt more like a rewind than anything else. Most of the plot lines were repeated or re-elaborated again, which is fine to an extent. I just left the episode not feeling like I had learned anything new, or that the character’s hadn’t grown much.  The few new things were interesting and I’m curious to…

Chicago Med (S1E17): “Withdrawal”

Review: The guest star playing the alcoholic gave a great performance in Tuesdays’ episode of Chicago Med. He had a very natural ability to be so distressed. The fact that April wanted to “put a bandaid on” and give the patient a beer felt so out of character. I like the concept of a nurse wanting…
