Michael J. Fox
The Chicago Code (Monday, 9/8c, Fox)
Perking up what has been a pretty dismal midseason so far, this tough, brisk police drama from The Shield's Shawn Ryan is set and filmed in Chicago, where the city's brash first female police superintendent (Jennifer Beals, cast against type) clashes with a corrupt alderman (Delroy Lindo, savoring his smooth villainy) who holds her department's purse strings. Colvin's eyes and ears on the mean streets is reckless local-legend detective Jarek Wysocki (Brotherhood's Jason Clarke), who's just been saddled with a young, earnest partner (Friday Night Lights' Matt Lauria) who's not as green as he looks. The show weaves each of their points-of-view into a compelling, muscular narrative. Please watch...

Question: I enjoy a good soap, which is probably why I've always liked Grey's Anatomy. However, I'm really questioning this whole baby plot. From what I've gathered online, a lot of the lesbian community appears to be truly offended by a storyline that they feel would never be imposed on a straight couple and I can definitely see their point. I've never seen a primetime TV show force a man to deal with a former/current girlfriend having someone else's baby. That tends to be a deal breaker. But my understanding is that Grey's isn't the first show to use this plot with a female couple. I think Shonda Rhimes has done a great job showcasing a diverse cast and attempting to be sensitive to all communities, which is why I'd love to know exactly why she's chosen to tell this particular story, with a man smack in the middle of the only gay couple on the show forever and ever if they're going to share custody of a child. — Jen
