Remarkably cast, expertly written, and flourishing with promise, The Chi makes a stunning debut. I look forward to spending more time in Waithe's Chicago
Well-written South Chicago-themed drama isn't for kids.
All this plot leaves characters with so little downtime that they can only appear skeletally sketched.
Television is waiting for a show that turns the South Side's unique struggle into groundbreaking pop culture poetry, but The Chi will have to raise its game a bit more to pull that off.
Like The Wire, the more time you spend with the characters the more invested you get, and this is a credit to the world Waithe has developed for the screen.
