Sneak Peek: The Rest Of The Story

"Scenes of Ronnie being booked and entering Cook County Prison are spliced throughout the episode. It’s a sharp, necessary look into the nature of incarceration in one of the nation’s most overcrowded prisons..."


"Ease On Down The Road cements The Chi’s status as a show that’s more interested in allowing viewers to hangout in the world it creates than dramatics."
