I missed posting on a couple episodes but after S6, E3 episode, I had to share my thoughts as well. I am so disappointed and disgusted with this once brilliantly-written show; I think I'm through watching--at least on a regular basis. Maybe I've been beaten down by the pandemic but after patiently waiting for the return of Chicago Med, S6, E3 was just dull & boring. We have the usual suspects and more of the same:
Halstead - Mr. Omnipotent who ALWAYS knows what's best for patients--almost killing them every time! Will he NEVER learn??
April - Can she be anymore childish, unprofessional and annoying--in general and especially with Choi? They've made her into another unlikable know-it-all and him like a whipped puppy every time he looks at her/they confront each other.🤢
Choi - seems to have lost all intelligence and competence he once displayed in the earlier seasons. Now he's become befuddled, uncertain and a bad decision maker about what to do on anything!
Dr. Charles - he's become an unimportant character when his previous involvement was at least the voice of reason. I don't know why the writers brought back his teenage daughter and 2ndd wife. For that matter, why bring back CeCe only to have her die?
Sharon - What's up with her video calls? Is she supposed to still be in quarantine? (I believe she's diabetic IRL so perhaps that's why she's not on the show? Did I miss something?)
Maggie - they make a big deal of her getting married, health issues, etc., and if I were a first-time viewer, I'd know nothing about who she is!! Is she even still married? did he die? do they still have that kid? Maybe I need to revisit S6, E1-2 as I honestly can't remember and worse, don't know if I want to, LOL!
Manning & Marcel - JUST HELL NO. I could see this "set up" coming for miles and hoped against this arrangement but it looks like they will push it forward. And who the hell is self-righteous Natalie to question him about his one-night stands?
I don't know who the writers are for this season (or since Connor's departure) but this is show is past life support. Sadly, there is nothing redeeming about this show any longer which causes me to question if it can be saved. The uninteresting, poorly-written yet predictable storylines, character assassinations they've done to everyone, etc., just doesn't hold my interest any longer; I'm not invested in these characters since they've become a shell of who they once were. If they don't resuscitate it quickly, it will continue to die a slow, painful death, imo.
Happy New Year to all and stay safe & healthy!!😷
