'Code Black' Is Full of Chaos and Compassion
Huffington Post - over 1 year
TV Review - Jackie K Cooper Code Black (CBS) It is not easy to find a highly watchable series among the crop of newbies being offered on TV this season, but I have found one standout. It is CBS' Code Black, and it is ER on steroids. At first glance I thought it had potential but I didn't know if I would invest an hour every week to watch it. The draw was Marcia Gay Harden, an actress I have admired for years, but she didn't seem to be at the top of her game in the role of Dr. Leanne Rorish. "Not so fast," a little voice inside my head whispered and by the second episode she had me hooked. This is one of those series that is perfectly cast. Harden and Luis Guzman play two of the lead medical people in the ER of a major hospital in Los Angeles. They have four interns training under them. Harry Ford is Angus Leighton, Bonnie Somerville is Christa Lorenson. Benjamin Hollingsworth is Mario Savetti. Melanie Chandra is Malaya Pineda.

The Weekend Playlist: Foyle's Cold War, A Second Look at Orphan Black
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
In The Eternity Ring, the first of three new Foyle mystery movies (Sunday at 9/8c, check tvguide.com listings), Foyle is drawn into the investigation of a rumored Soviet spy ring, with Sam caught in the web of suspicion because of her association with her current employer, a physicist who witnessed the A-bomb testing a year earlier in New Mexico. Because Sundays are ridiculously busy, if you miss Foyle on Sunday, episodes will be available online the next day at pbs.org and www.Acorn.TV, which also offers past seasons of this smart and absorbing series. There is no war more compelling than the fight for survival currently being played out in the thrilling final hours of AMC's Breaking Bad (Sunday, 9/8c), which ended last week's episode on an amazingly fever-pitched note of high tension, abruptly cutting off amid a desert shootout that in its stark and savage violence recalled the best of Sam Peckinpah. The magnificent Leona (Jane Fonda) has put everyone's fate in the hands of her ...
