Some days you just can't win.
More than a few members of the Ed team seemed disheartened at the end of Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 5. Poor Nat and Sarah were in an impossible position, and even though Choi solved the mystery of his patient's illness, there was only so much he could do about the underlying cause.
A few were able to look for the silver lining though. Even if Will spent the majority of the hour freaking out and second guessing the decisions he made, he had Nina to fall back on for support. And Noah finally did something to make April proud!
I know we just talked about this, but the promos from hell struck again. And here's what I didn't say last time: this hurts the show. These promos, designed to get fans psyched while drawing in new viewers, only end up letting everyone down.

Another Dick Wolf fake-out trailer strikes again.
Seriously, if there was an Emmy category for most creatively misleading promo, Chicago Med Season 2 Episode 4 would have it in the bag. Despite the lack of follow through on all that hype, there was plenty of damn good medicine, and possibly the grossest procedure so far.
In addition to the nauseating abscess drainage, there was plenty of human drama to captivate us. Nat may be more confused about her relationships than ever, even as she helped Connor understand his teacher. And it turns out that Dr. Charles is great at helping others, but he's got plenty of his own problems too.
I can't decide if the editor who puts together the promos for Med should be fired or promoted to the writing staff. I'm sick of teasers that are so misleading, but at the same time, the stories that they pitch us are so much. »

This week, Paramount bows “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the true story of a very nice woman who happened to be a very bad singer. Many will talk about the fact that it’s likely to land star Meryl Streep her 20th Oscar nomination, which is staggering. But perhaps even more surprising is that her co-star in the film, Hugh Grant, has never even been nominated.
Maybe it’s not that shocking, considering Grant doesn’t usually make movies that compete in the Oscar race; with the exception of “Sense and Sensibility” in 1995, his work tends to be more populist than “prestige.” But “Florence Foster Jenkins,” directed by Stephen Frears, is the perfect combination of both. It’s a big crowd-pleaser, a period piece, and a true story. It also helps that the central characters are artists – something the Academy loves. The film itself is the first entry of the year that »

The hugely ambitious Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has no shortage of classic episodes. These, for instance...
Overlapping with both Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's seven seasons had some very high points, It also had some very low ones that strayed a bit too far from the core of Star Trek for some fans, yet gave the show a unique texture that some savour.
If you only ever watch 25 stories from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, these are they, at least in my opinion – the only rule being that multi-part episodes count as one story (but great big multi-season Dominion flavoured arcs don't!)
