Chicago Med cast

"Chicago Med" review by Eva Diaz  11/18/15
Airs Tuesdays 9/8c on NBC

I was excited to watch this show because although I have never been a fan of Dick Wolf's "Law and Order" franchise, I have enjoyed watching "Chicago Fire" and "Chicago PD" since their first seasons.  I was, however, a little wary to see another medical drama, since I haven't really found one that I enjoy watching since "ER" ended its series run.  I do enjoy watching the NBC summer series "Nightshift," but it doesn't quite fill the hole that "ER" left for this fan of medical drama.  I think that "Chicago Med" may just do the trick.  The series follows senior resident Will Hallstead (Nick Gehlfuss), who is the brother of Chicago PD's Jay Hallstead (Jesse Soffer). It's clear that Will is a doctor who doesn't like to follow the rules and is more concerned about saving his patients then hospital rules that sometimes get in the way of patient care.  In the pilot, Will gets upset when he can't operate on a young lady that is a surrogate mother because the parents of the baby won't give consent to operate, since there is a risk to the life of the baby.  Also, an L train derails and Dr. Connor Rhodes ( "Arrow's" Colin Donnel)  is on the train and quickly starts to  help the injured, bringing them into the emergancy room.  Dr. Rhodes is the doctor that all the ladies are talking about at the hospital, which is made clear as soon as he arrives.  Dr. Hallstead and Dr. Rhodes will probably be at odds during the season because Dr. Rhodes likes to treat the patients and let them go, and Dr. Hallstead likes to take  a little time to get to know his patients, as well as make sure they have follow-up care if needed.   The cast is great and includes S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, as well as Oliver Platt as Dr. Charles. 

I really enjoyed this show.  It had touching moments as well as moments of excitement as the doctors try to save the lives of their patients.  I am looking forward to getting to know the doctors of Chicago Med because in the pilot you didn't really get to know too much yet about the lives of the hospital staff. I hope that comes in future episodes.  I give this show 5 out of 5 stars! It is fast-paced and wil grab your interest from the start. You'ill find yourself emotionally invested in the lives of the staff and the patients of the hospital.
