Melanie also gave insight into her hopes for Malaya as well as the importance of…

Code Black (S02E03): “Corporeal Form”

Review: Well and truly into their second season, Code Black is continuing to heighten the stakes; the drama is more heart-wrenching, the medical cases increasing in complexity and the relationships between the Angels staff evolving and devolving. With a more light-hearted opening this week, “Corporeal Form” opens on Willis (Rob Lowe) and Charlotte (Nafessa Williams)…

Code Black (S02E02): “Life and Limb”

Review: Masterclass. That is what you get when you combine Code Black’s cast with guest stars such as Eric Roberts, Camryn Manheim and Charlie Barnett. Not only that, they shed light on the life and history of Beth, a Trans woman, whose story is one so timely and poignant. Two episodes in, and Code Black…

Code Black (S02E01): “The Second Year”

Review: It’s back everyone, Code Black has officially premiered and we are undoubtedly happy. Even with the off-screen changes, and a 12 month time jump, the high-octane, action packed, medical drama we fell in love with last year hasn’t lost any punch. Welcoming back our beloved originals with the addition of a few new faces…

Code Black: (S1E18) “Blood Sport”

Review: Closing out their first season, Code Black delivered a high-octane, heartbreaking, passion fueled finale.

The two politicians vying for the top position were old friends, but with the dog-eat-dog nature of politics, they lost…

Code Black: (S1E17) “Love Hurts”

Review: This week saw the staff of Angels settling into their new roles; Dr. Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden) still trying to adjust to being a “suit”, Grace (Meagan Good) finding her feet in the new/old layout of the emergency department and Neal (Raza Jaffrey) cutting his teeth in surgery with Dr. Campbell who is not…

Code Black: S1E16 “Hail Mary”

Review: In the aftermath of last week’s traumatic events, Angels picks right back up where it left off. That and we are graced with a list of guest-stars that’d make any television or film buff scream for joy. We open on Mario (Ben Hollingsworth) and Guthrie, wheeling in 22 year old Lizzie who is having…

Code Black: S01E15 “Diagnosis of Exclusion”

Review:  Talk about dropping the mic. This latest episode of Code Black was game-changing and definitely warrants the series picking up a second season. So CBS, make it happen!  Last week, we were left with Christa (Bonnie Somerville) finding an attacked Gina (Christina Vidal), bloodied on the locker room floor (crazy, stalker patient Gordon {Jesse…
