Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 Review: Sanctuary

18 January 2017 10:03 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

One thing that viewers can expect from any of the Dick Wolf franchises, is an episode or two dedicated to a ripped from the headlines case or current event. 

This go round, Chicago Pd Season 4 Episode 12 was a nod at the Charleston shooting. 

What I appreciated the most, is that for once the case wasn't "on the nose." In fact, it was so subtle that it barely registered until the end of the episode. Nothing about the case had anything to do with the real life tragedy. 

The case was that of a female jogger being sexually assaulted and killed in a park. The two suspects were two young black boys wearing hoodies. You know, same old, same old. 

Aside from Tillman having a few physical similarities to Dylan Roof (redhead with a bowl-cut), his being unapologetic and not showing an ounce of remorse, a fire bomb ruining a church, »

NBCUniversal to Shut Down Esquire Network Cable Channel, Relaunch Brand as Digital Platform (Exclusive)

18 January 2017 11:54 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBCUniversal will shutter Esquire Network’s linear cable channel and relaunch the brand as a digital-only platform, Variety has learned. The decision to end the cable channel’s operation was spurred by recent negotiations with Charter Communications over a carriage-contract renewal.

Esquire Network was dropped last month from At&T’s DirecTV and U-Verse services. That move resulted in a loss of 25% of the channel’s subscribers — down from 60 million to 45 million. If Esquire Network were to be dropped by Charter, it would have lost an additional 15 million subscribers, making it no longer viable for Comcast-owned NBCUniversal to continue to operate.

Esquire Network will continue its cable feed through the summer. The channel employs around 50 staffers. Roughly 30 of those employees will likely be downsized, with the remainder kept on to service the brand’s new digital play.

Sources say that NBCUniversal is not pursuing a sale of the channel, as there are no prospective buyers — nor is »

Hey Randall, guess what? You were almost a firefighter’s kid.

Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 10 Review: Heart Matters

13 January 2017 2:53 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

At least one person ended up having a good day on Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 10.

Meghan may have gotten her heart, but everybody else's day pretty much sucked. Maggie got temporarily replace, Charles and Connor had a patient let them down, Natalie got publicly chewed out, Jeff got dumped, and Sarah got no sleep.

Natalie's starting to get good at standing up for herself, even if she isn't getting any better at picking love interests. Maybe she should start looking outside of the hospital?

I don't want to give credence to anything that smarmy close-talker Dr. Stohl said, but dating a med student, even one you've had a previous personal relationship with, was not a smart move. Awkward enough to be dating your student, but now you have to go and teach your ex on a daily basis? Awkward.
