Finally, Season One has arrived on DVD! If you are familiar with ER you know all the adjectives used to describe this unique show; Gripping, Stunning, Amazing, etc.
So what does this DVD offer? Well, as the title states, the complete first season. It also includes the 1 1/2 hour pilot. In addition there are behind the scenes, bloopers, the making of, commentaries on three episodes, and more.
As a real fan of ER I have waited for this DVD for some time now. The shows are wonderful to revisit. I am reminded of 'old friends' who have long since left the ER.
I gave up on TV a number of years ago and do not have cable or watch any TV. A family member records the current ER episodes for me and I devour them each time. It is simply outstanding entertainment. The actors, story, music, editing, camera work and sooo much more combine to bring out the very best in entertainment.
The only downside to this DVD comes with the packaging. The DVDs are double sided so you cannot set the DVD down without possibly scratching it. Also, because there is no label on each DVD you need to read the very fine print near the center hole to identify which DVD is # 1, 2, 3, or 4. And the print is even smaller to figure out which side is A/B.
My 5 star rating is based on the quality of the episodes. The extras included with the DVD deserve 4 stars, and the packaging would be only 1 star.

ER is one of the best shows I've ever seen. I've been watching it from the airing of the Pilot and I've been hooked ever since. If you are looking for an emotional high this is the show to watch. The writers and actors are amazing. Each episode makes me laugh, cry, and gets my adrenaline pumping. This show confronts extremely controversial, contemporary issues and even though I'm not in the medical profession I believe that it is very realistic. Anyone who works with a lot of people day in and day out can relate to what it is like to be pulled in several different directions at once and still try to maintain a professional facade, which I think this show pulls off beautifully.

Having seen so many dire hospital dramas ("Casualty" and the like) I must admit I never thought I could possibly get into a series like "ER". That is until two friends insisted I watched an episode one Friday night on Channel 4 and within 30 mins I was hooked. Since then I've probably missed no more than 3 or 4 episodes and every one I've watched has been streets ahead of the competition.
I hope people won't take offence when I say that US shows often run the risk of drifting into over-sentimentality. They do. But ER's greatest strength is the ability to handle the most emotional of story lines without it ever feeling that the line has been crossed. It's blend of realism and top-draw performances from the whole cast delivers TV that's right on the edge. It's quite simply the best show I've ever seen.
If anyone reading this is a Warner Bros executive, please please please release some box sets of the show. I'm quite sure I'm not the only one who'd buy up the lot straight away!

In the history of television, first seasons are rarely that impressive. I mean, a lot of times you'll hear people saying how remarkable the first season was, but when you compare to later seasons, it will pale. Such is not the case with "ER." "ER" got off and running with an incredible first season any show would be lucky to compare to.

It all started with a wonderful pilot. Any other show would be lucky to have a pilot like the pilot of "ER," as well. Running two hours with commercials and an hour and a half withouht, it's simply spellbinding, launching off the series splendidly, introducing the characters and the style of the show that continues to this day. The characters we meet in the pilot are:

Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards): Mark is basically the head guy of the hospital, and in the pilot, we become familiar with his hectic lifestyle and how he juggles his work and his family, not always successfully. He has an annoying little brat daughter and a terrible wife, but this doesn't stop him from being perhaps the best character of not just the original cast, but the entire series. Anthony Edwards makes Mark such a loveable character.

Doug Ross (George Clooney): This was the role that basically shot George Clooney off to superstardom, and he plays it well. Doug is a tough but a irresponsible man and in the pilot we become familiar with his previous love affair with Nurse Carol Hathaway.

Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield): By far my favorite character from the original cast, Dr. Lewis is a tough and wonderful character (not to mention freakishly sexy). Sherry Stringfield really lights up this role.

ER is such a technically accurate show that when it first came out my medical school sponsored "ER" parties at the school lounge every Thursday night. Whenever Carter the medical student was pimped a question by his resident or attending students would yell out the answer to see who would get it right. It was great review especially before exam week. Although it's gotten more dramatic & less technical in recent seasons, there's still a few rare "classic cases" with "classic signs & symptoms" that students don't get to see much on the real floors (Wilson's Disease & Trisomy 18 were recent examples on the show). They should make an ER DVD with a quiz or game component, where they play a scene in the episode where a patient presents w/ signs & symptoms & just before the doctor says what they have & how it should be treated, a multiple choice screen pops up asking "what's the diagnosis" or "what's the next step in management doc?" Then, have the scene play out after they give their answer with information on the disease in closed caption at the bottom. It would be fun for doctors & educate the public.
