Review of Code Black

60 minutes

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.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Do you remember ER? How it was when it started? All gritty and compelling and not at all pretty? Code Black is very much like it, in the best possible way. By the end of the first episode, I was thoroughly invested in most of the main characters, even the ones I don't particularly like. This is no Grey's Anatomy. It's not shiny and love-lorn. It throws you into the middle of something that feels very real, in a way that makes you feel like you've been there watching for a very long time already. And in a way, most importantly, that makes you never want to leave.
