Ms. Waithe has succeeded in putting a wide web of interesting and sympathetic characters on screen and telling their stories with a minimum of sentimentality and a consistent, welcome dose of low-key humor.
The show reveals the intricacies not only of crime but of life in general-how victimhood extends beyond the morgue, and how heroes are made every day in the smallest of acts.
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.
