Prime Picks

House (FOX): New. Masters is put in the position of having to choose between becoming a surgeon and being officially on House’s team. A 16-year-old about to leave on an around the world sailing trip falls ill.

The Chicago Code (FOX): New. Five merchants get gunned down in a restaurant and the escalation in violence lands squarely on Superintendent Colvin. Wysocki and Evers investigate. Colvin is also facing a vote of no confidence by the union. Another fantastic episode that shows us how precarious a position Colvin is in as the top cop. While I didn’t care as much for the side story, I did like that it tied into a something that happened in a previous episode.
