THE CHI
January 7, 2018  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

Showtime, 10:00 p.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: Lena Waithe, who co-wrote the Emmy-winning “Thanksgiving” episode of Master of None with Aziz Ansari, created this new Showtime series, which looks at modern-day South Side Chicago through the eyes of a handful of its everyday citizens – children, teens and adults. The opening hour starts with a bike ride through the neighborhood, and by the end of the hour, you’ll have a hard time forgetting the biker. And other characters make their marks, too, just striving to get by, and advance – and connect. For full reviews, see Ed Bark’s Uncle Barky’s Bytes and David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower.

Thank you!
It's every bit as spellbinding as you say: "The Wire" + empathy.
Coogie is indeed unforgettable.
