    CopyCat! But Great Cast, amazing Actors/Actresses make up for it
  • Jun 20, 2016
    Excellent main cast, BUT why do all the supporting characters act against human nature. The only medical drama that presents characters in this way. Example ep8 girl is brought in desperately ill, needs a scan, father gets tired of waiting for scan so storms into scan room and orders it to be stopped.. Completely against human nature.. Will stick with the show, the main cast are good enough to carry a few poor stories.. But not a few poor seasons

    The cast of Chicago Med will always make you want to see more. Every episode has a story that invite you to dive into the situation.
  • Jan 26, 2016
    I love all three shows.
  • Nov 18, 2015
    Cast is good, but OMG, how many cliches ... pregnant doctor whose husband killed in action, organ transplant drama, etc ... think they have run out of things to write about in the first episode.
