The final season of ER, the definitive medical drama of the '90s, found a way to wrap up its 15-season run without veering off the rails; moreover, it managed to bring back most of its famous alumni in guest appearances that didn't detract from the series' core. However, a longtime cast member dies in the very first episode of the season, which tells you everyone is still expendable. Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney)'s exit reveals a nice tip of the hat to the cast's revolving door: a storage-closet wall where Nurse Haleh had been posting everyone's locker nameplates. Angela Bassett turns up as Catherine Banfield, the new chief of the ER, with a fraying marriage and a personal tragedy told in flashback--a clever device to bring back the series' linchpin Anthony Edwards, who played Dr. Mark Greene (Bassett's real-life husband, Courtney B. Vance, plays her onscreen husband). Meanwhile, Tony (John Stamos) and Sam (Linda Cardellini)'s new domestic life is torn apart by a tragic car accident; Neela (Parminder Nagra) finally makes a decision about her medical and romantic future; and John Carter (Noah Wyle, who has appeared in more episodes than any other cast member) returns for the second half of the season, with a medical condition and a strained marriage. Fans will love the episode "Old Times," in which George Clooney, Julianna Margulies, and Eriq La Salle reprise their roles, and the guest stars include Susan Sarandon and a then-unknown Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo). As a nice touch, the opening credits--which had followed the television trend and truncated itself into a five-second title card--reverted back to the original for the series finale, complete with the iconic theme song and a listing of both the current and original cast members. The final episode brings Carter together with Benton, Susan Lewis (Sherry Stringfield), Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes), and Elizabeth Corday (Alex Kingston) at the grand opening of Carter's HIV outpatient center; it also brings the series to a fitting close as County General continues to hustle and bustle through the end credits.

The set includes the hour-long retrospective that originally aired before the series finale, with extensive interviews not just with the main cast but those who appeared in just one season (remember Maria Bello and Jorja Fox?). They reflect on significant episodes like "Love's Labor's Lost" (season one) and creator Michael Crichton, who died during the final season. Also paying tribute? One of the show's former producers who helped adapt Crichton's original film screenplay into the series: some guy named Steven Spielberg. --Ellen A. Kim

Product Description

Combining the extraordinary talents of best-selling author Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television with Peabody, Humanitas, and Emmy®-winning producer John Wells (The West Wing, Third Watch) and Emmy® winner Christopher Chulack (Third Watch), the multiple Emmy® Award-winning ER explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room. These medical professionals remain determined to save lives in a place where nothing is taken for granted and nothing is certain...nothing except that another desperate person will be rushed through the emergency room doors in the next moment in need of their help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything Old is New Again in the Final Season March 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After countless highs and lows over the previous five or six seasons, it was hard to know what to expect from ER's farewell season.
Fourteen, which was supposed to be the final season before the writer's strike, got off to a mediocre start and had just begun
to set up the ending during the midpoint of the season. Consequently, it came as no surprise to me when NBC announced in April
2008 that ER would get one more shot at an (uninterupted) 19 episode send off. It was the best thing that could've happened.

The fifteenth season picks up seconds after the previous season finale, with the wounded from the ambulance bombing
flooding County General. (SPOILERS AHEAD) The episode also includes a wrenching sned off for Dr. Gregory Pratt, the
final regular cast member of the show to be killed off. With this first episode, the early days seemed to be back.
The intensity that had been lacking from more recent seasons returned, and stayed with the show all throughout the
fifteenth season. The writing also improved, and several fresh storylines centered around County's newest Doc,
Catherine Banfield (NAACP Image Award Winner Angela Bassett, Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, 2009, ER).
Her character also served as a portal into the past, the key to a storyline involving Dr. Greene that allowed
Anthony Edwards, Laura Innes and Paul McCrane to reprise their roles. Throughout the season, Shane West, Noah Wyle,
Sherry Stringfield, Eriq La Salle, Alex Kingston, George Clooney and Julianna Margulies would also make
appearances.

The greatest thing about this season is how it seamlessly blends old storylines and characters with new
ones yet never makes the mistake of wasting screen time with too many syrupy reunions.

ER: Season 15

In 1988 NBC cancelled the critically acclaimed hospital drama St. Elsewhere after a six year run. The Emmy winning show with an incredibly loyal fan base, though never a top ten hit, was described as reflecting the gritty reality of a big city hospital. So who would have thought that six years later two movie moguls with limited television experience such as Michael Crichton and Steven Spielberg, fresh off their successful collaboration on Jurassic Park, could sell NBC on a hospital drama reflecting the gritty reality of life in the emergency room of a big city hospital?

Based on his own experience as a resident physician in a busy hospital emergency room Crichton penned a screenplay in 1974. The script remained unsold and Crichton moved on to other projects until 1994 when he and Spielberg turned Crichton's screenplay into a television pilot. The pilot which was virtually unchanged from the original screenplay aired on September 19, 1994 opposite Monday Night Football and did surprisingly well. After being moved to Thursday nights, the show became a surprise hit of the 1994-1995 season. ER would eventually anchor NBC's Thursday "Must See TV" lineup and last for fifteen seasons.

On July 12th, 2011 Warner Home Video released the fifteenth season of ER on DVD. The five disc box set contains all twenty-two episodes of the final season and "Previously on ER" a retrospective featurette.

With season fifteen being added after the show received a stay of execution due to the writers strike during season fourteen, the show was given a chance to pass on in a far more dignified manner, and the now reasonably satisfied writers were allowed to stretch their creative muscles to fill the additional episodes.

I will be sure to walk many, many miles to find a hospital-focussed television drama that comes close to the standard "ER" has set. I think, from the outset, it must have been the aim of its creator (Michael Crichton) to make an impact, and touch television viewers like no other hospital drama ever has. "ER" certainly has touched me, and I miss it so, so much. I am hoping the DVD set will include the special retrospective episode as an extra extra special feature.

The final 15th season of of ER is an exciting season. Characters come full circle in their lives and in their careers as doctors. This final season leaves you with a sense of losing an old friend but knowing they are left in a good place. There is plenty of drama and excitement in this unique TV series. Unlike other series' final seasons this collection leaves you feeling like you know where and what happens with your favorite characters. The ending to this amazing TV series is definitely one you will want to add to your collection. The entire collection of all 15 seasons of ER is one that you will enjoy watching from season 1 to the final season 15 time and time again.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Series on DVD! April 3, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This review covers all 15 seasons of ER on DVD....

First let me say, I have watched ER since the very first season in 1994. Although I did not like several of the later seasons as much as the earlier ones, it was still an outstanding show. As the cast got larger, there were too many storylines going on all at once. Some of my favorite storylines included:

Dr. Ross helping the young disabled boy which in turn resulted in him leaving County General
Dr. Benton dealing with the premature birth of his son Reece, finally showing his emotional side
The birth of Doug & Carol's twin girls
The attack on Carter & Lucy and how the gang had to band together to save their lives
The emotional episodes dealing with the death of Dr. Greene -- I have seen those episodes multiple times and I still cry every single time
Dr. Greene's "dilemma" about how to treat the man who shot so many on the way to attempting to hurt his family (where he did not use the defibrillator correctly in the elevator)
Carol deciding to join Doug in Seattle (cameo by George Clooney)

Now, as far as the DVDs themselves....

The earlier seasons, unexpectedly, are double-sided DVDs so you have to turn them over in order to watch all of the episodes. I believe it is either season 3 or 4 where it goes to single side. The bonus features are a lot of fun. Lots of behind the scenes stuff, including commentaries, deleted scenes, outtakes (which are really funny), and information about a lot of the medical jargon that we heard during the episodes.

I actually own & have watched all 15 seasons of ER on DVD. It took me a while, but I did it! It really is a lot of fun to look back at some of my favorite episodes as well as remember things I may have forgotten.
