CODE BLACK, based on the award-winning documentary by Ryan McGarry, is a heart-pounding medical drama that takes place in the busiest, most notorious ER in the nation, where the staggering influx of patients can outweigh the limited resources available to the extraordinary doctors and nurses whose job is to treat them all – creating a condition known as Code Black.
I love this show. Well written plot. Makes you tear up at the end of every episode. Shows how when a group of people work together in stressful situations, they band together to form a family. Love that there is not the gratuitous drama for the sake of drama. Interesting plot points that avid TV watchers might not see coming.
I didn't think I'd like Rob Lowe, but his character was written to be interesting and add a new dynamic to the show in the later seasons.
Angus and Mario's banter and their actions ring true as how friends act.
Sad they canceled this, I wanted to see another year of residency. Would have been a great 4 season arc finale. The student becomes the master, but still having a lot to learn trope.
We will miss Momma and Daddy, and the Civic Cathedral that is Angels Memorial.
Very enjoyable. The "shop talk" that goes on in this ER makes it much more realistic than ER shows of the norm. Not for the squeamish but constructed very well. Not surprised to see cancellation, not that I looked into the writing or anything but as time went on it seemed the show was losing it's way.
This show is really loud & fast paced. While some may enjoy that, I didn't like it at all. For me it is simply too fast & too hectic. I rather watch greys anatomy or Chicago Med - which both still are action packed & not lame at all, but allow me to breathe and relax.
I'm pretty sure the writers of Code Black have some sort of "Minimum hit list" for the number of emotions they drag you through within the limited time frame they have you for.
Anger, frustration, happiness, disappointment and any mix of ups and downs they can hit you with all make up the roller coaster that I'm compelled to ride over and over again. I easily recommend this show to everyone I know (although I hand out a package of tissues with each recommendation), positive that they will come to love the ride as much as I do!
Exciting, powerful and really moving, this is how I see this show. It is the best show on TV now. It is fast paced, great story line, great actors and so fresh and exciting to watch. I want to see more of this show and would like to see more shows like it on TV. There is a little bit of everything in this show for everyone. It brings me back to when ER first aired, everyone was glued to the TV for every show and that is how I see this show going forward, a great future! Don't change a thing, it is great!!!!!!!
