  • If its ambitions sometimes outstrip its execution, the drama’s generosity and seriousness of purpose give heft to its most successful storylines. Show More

  • Created and written by Emmy winner Lena Waithe (“Master of None”), The Chi isn’t always an easy show to watch, but it imbues its characters with a humanity and complexity that makes the series commendable. Show More

  • It's the writing that gets in the way of some of the believability issues in The Chi. Some of this might work out with more episodes as Waithe and her writing staff breathe more life into the characters. Several additional storylines aren't fleshed out enough yet to know if they'll become interesting. With barely half the stories and characters piquing interest early on, The Chi doesn't come out of the gate strong and will have to overcome structural weaknesses and acting issues to have any chance to succeed, so patience will be needed.
