      That’s good news… Considering many successful drama series having a movie adaptation,this wasn’t a surprise :p

      I thought they would even reach 20% if they choose to go with season 1 and season 2 plot. it such a waste of amazing cast. I prefer code blue season 1 and season 2 more because season 3 seems too much stories and characters that not needed and less actions too but still, congratulation for high ratings and movie. this is good news for Fuji tv and getsu9.

        You mean, you think they would reach 20% by repeating S1 and S2 plot? When S1&2 itself didn’t even reach 20% besides S1E1?

        Totally agree there was some unnecessary plotlines, (looking at u ungrateful piano girl), and less focus on treatment scenes.

        But I can’t bring myself to hate the 3rd season coz there were some quality comical scenes that made me replay those scenes over and over again, and the bond between the OT5 is the strongest this season. They had less treatment scenes together this season coz they all have their own separate job to do but even tho the quantity decreased, the quality did not.

        Definitely one of my fave scenes are in S3E5 w/ Saejima x Hiyama x Shiraishi as well as Aizawa x Fujikawa.

        Plus, this season had the organ transplant scene as well as the treatment in the cold room storage and damage control. Really cool scenes that rival the treatments in the previous seasons.

          only the maybe and my hope. At first I just thought the possibility to get 20% ratings would be higher in Season 3 with Yamapi and Aragaki popularity now, plus Erika Toda,Asari Yusuke,Higa manami. compared to them 7 or 9 years ago. maybe this is just me who expected too much.
          I didn’t say I hate season 3 too and I watched it until final episode. just dissapointed with the script.

          overall, code blue still the highest ratings drama this season and highest for getsu in past few years. that’s a very good result.

          agreed about the unnecessary plot lines, wish it was tighter but I’m happy with OT5 interaction & bond.
          and this is my first time seeing organ transplant surgery in drama tbh (I’m not a fan of medical dramas). what hiyama sensei said during that scene makes me emotional.
