    Already this fall viewers have seen one fine but not great medical drama, CBS’s Code Black. Now there’s another, NBC’s even more generic Chicago Med. The heart-tugging medical stories and conflicts all feel familiar, none of them delivered with anything that approaches a fresh twist. Chicago Med is more of a show to comfortably fall asleep to.

    ABC’s new Wicked City reminds us that if you’re going to build a show around the slaughter of pretty young women, you better have both a good reason and a good plan. Or else, like Wicked City, you may shoot for suspenseful and too often end up just unpleasant. Wicked City doesn’t seem to be trying to sell violence porn. It just hasn’t quite figured out how to straddle the line between getting our attention and making us turn away.

    Television is a business of familiar formats, but success often comes when a series freshens an oft-repeated premise. CBS’s Supergirl illustrates the point. Supergirl offers a delightful star, special-effects thrills and a big dose of girl power to broaden the superhero genre. Watching the title character in action, a waitress marvels, “Can you believe it? A female hero?” If Supergirl isn’t breaking new ground, the premiere still offers persuasive, high-flying entertainment.
