Chicago Med - S01E01

Drama
 

The emergency department's grand opening is interrupted by an onslaught of crash victims, pushing hospital administrator Sharon Goodwin and her staff to their limits as they frantically work to triage and treat patients. It's all hands on deck as newly hired trauma surgeon Dr. Connor Rhodes, pregnant paediatrics specialist Dr. Natalie Manning, third-year resident Dr. Will Halstead, military-trained Dr. Ethan Choi, nurse April Sexton and head of psychiatry Dr. Daniel Charles must pull together to save lives. Rounding out the team is medical student Sarah Reese, who quickly learns some of the hard lessons that come with life in the Emergency Department.

    The show isn’t even close to fully formed yet--the relationships between characters are mere sketches, and the mélange of patients, interpersonal moments, and hospital politics is a bit of a jumble--but the foundation feels solid enough to hint that while this might not be the next ER, it’s certainly something that could grow into a fully realized, enjoyable show.

    There is NO new ground broken here. And yet, like “Chicago Fire,” there’s something that works.... The cast here is better than average for the modern medical drama. Platt and Merkerson are the two veterans who ground the piece, while the new young cast, especially DaCosta, DeVito and Donnell have breakout potential.

    Viewers looking for the best new medical drama of this still young season can find it in Chicago Med. Then again, there are only two of them so far.

  • David Sims

    Perhaps unsurprisingly, Chicago Med marks yet another routine entry and doggedly follows the same beats as its forbears, most notably the Chicago-set ER.

  • Mekeisha Madden Toby

    None of these [Dick Wolf Chicago] shows are groundbreaking. All have dialogue is lumpy. But for viewers who crave the familiar, there is something comforting about attractive people saving the day.

  • Scott D. Pierce

    Chicago Med isn't bad. If you're looking for just another medical show, this is it. If you're looking for something that will reach out and grab you, you're going to be disappointed.

    The Salt Lake Tribune Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    In a medium where drama junkies increasingly seem to need recaps to confirm (or explain) what they've seen, there's a place for a relatively old-fashioned medical show, especially one with a cast this appealing.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    The writers fill Chicago Med with just enough character work to make the players interesting.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Despite being given limited opportunities to shine, Merkerson, and Oliver Platt (as the head of psychiatry) do best, and the rest of the regular cast do well. The actors playing the patients and their families uniformly do not.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Robert Rorke

    A familiar, by-the-numbers procedural, where grave medical conditions bring out the best in people--and the emergency room pandemonium rolls off everyone’s back. It’s the anti-“Grey’s Anatomy” doctor show.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    What’s odd here is that even with the influx of injured, Chicago Med never builds any dramatic heat.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    The heart-tugging medical stories and conflicts all feel familiar, none of them delivered with anything that approaches a fresh twist.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    Chicago Med is so exactly what you expect it to be that there’s practically no point describing it, a bad thing if you like your shows innovative and unpredictable, but a good thing if you can’t get enough trauma room gore and dramatics.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    The tired nature of the material suggests this could be one of those TV operations that’s hard to deem a complete success even if the patient lives.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Padded with kids including an unborn child in medical danger, its corridors filled to capacity with the most attractive doctors this side of an afternoon soap opera, Chicago Med is not a subtle enterprise.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Though it's nice to see a hospital that is not run by drug addicts or operating way over its abilities, the staff at Chicago Med is maddeningly homogenous in its sincerity and ability.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    There appears to be nary an original plot device or line of dialogue in the Chicago Med pilot which is both alarming and impressive.
