Code Black: Season 1 (2015 - 2016)



Critic Consensus: While not reinventing the stethoscope, Code Black is an above-average medical drama, with appropriately theatrical storylines that make up for sometimes cheesy dialogue.

Tv Season Info

From creator Michael Seitzman comes this medical drama that follows Residency Director Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden) as she manages four first-year residents at the overcrowded and understaffed Angels Memorial Hospital ER Room. Dr. Rorish must also navigate her relationships and occasional differences of opinion with colleagues, including Senior Nurse Jesse Sallander (Luiz Guzman), Dr. Neal Hudson (Raza Jeffrey), and Dr. Rollie Guthrie (William Allen Young), as she attempts to successfully treat patients under often stressful circumstances.

Critic Reviews for Code Black Season 1

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (21)

Action and the beginning of character development are both good signs.

Sep 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If you missed ER or would prefer your Grey's Anatomy without so much bed-hopping, this could be the show for you.

Sep 30, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Harden's unfortunate typecasting is the least of the ailments afflicting Code Black.

Sep 30, 2015 | Full Review…

If the writers keep showing off Harden and Guzman so well, Code Black should have a good shot at survival. The premiere's emotional payoff offers another reason to hope.

Sep 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Harden is a fine actress, but the show's writers too often give her heavy-handed lines that are the equivalent of cauterizing a head wound with a blow torch.

Sep 30, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Top Critic

Code Black is a pretty good show and a pretty recognizable one too.

Sep 30, 2015 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Code Black makes you cardiac arrest at the pace of the action, but there's nothing new to see here.

Jun 14, 2017 | Full Review…

Code Black is at war with itself, trying to sell its setting's realistically jagged edges even as it files them down to nothing.

Sep 30, 2015 | Rating: 4/10 | Full Review…

Harden is strong, Shonda Rhimes strong, in her role as a dedicated physician.

Sep 30, 2015 | Full Review…

There's potential in Code Black, but it's tempered by the realization that this is a series that's not breaking any new ground and sometimes revisiting old ground in all the expected ways.
