This show is based on the award-winning documentary of the same name. This medical drama follows the staff in an extremely busy emergency room as they cope with a staggering amount of patients, which oftentimes outweighs the hospital's resources, resulting in a code black.
CODE BLACK is a more realistic medical drama than we're used to. ER ended in 2009, and at the time was trying to keep ahead of Grey's Anatomy, which isn't a great medical show in my opinion. CODE BLACK is a return to the more serious tone of the medical field. I respect shows like this because they represent emergency medicine as it actually is in the real world. You won't see this kind of trauma in smaller cities, but in New York or Chicago, this is pretty spot on.
Excellent direction, great acting, excellent cast (they aren't all powdered supermodels and actually look like ordinary people). The chaos and the stress is illustrated well. I'm not a medical professional yet, but the two I know personally say this show is mostly accurate. I hope it doesn't get canceled. I'm tired of all the unrealistic fluffy comedy hospital shows that have been on TV for the past 6 years since ER ended.
