Product Description

ER: The Complete Ninth Season (DVD)

Combining the extraordinary talents of best-selling author Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park) with Peabody, Humanitas and Emmy-winning producer John Wells ("The West Wing," "China Beach"), Emmy nominee Jack Orman ("JAG") and Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, the multiple Emmy Award-winning ER provocatively explores the chaos of an urban, public hospital emergency room and the lives of its devoted doctors and staff. When the difference between life and death rests on split-second decisions, only one thing endures--the power and passion of these dedicated medical professionals in the ER.

Following the tumultuous cast changes of the eighth season, ER's ninth season was still an engaging drama, and began in rousing fashion with what could be called Helicopter Incident #1, which forces one doctor to make big adjustments. Corday (Alex Kingston) returns from England but has difficulties on the job, especially when dealing with a new medical student who suffers from Parkinson's disease (Don Cheadle). Kovac (Goran Visnjic) engages in increasingly risky behavior, especially involving another new med student, Erin Harkins (Leslie Bibb). Pratt (Mekhi Phifer) strikes up a relationship with Chen (Ming-Na), has difficulties with his brother Leon (Marcello Thedford), and along with Gallant (Sharif Atkins) runs into trouble when a violent crime strikes Doc Magoo's diner. Romano (Paul McCrane) proves a nightmare when he takes over the ER, and Weaver (Laura Innes) awaits parenthood and makes a strategic decision when she does a favor for a powerful local politician, Alderman John Bright (Bruce Weitz). Lewis (Sherry Stringfield) befriends a terminal cancer patient (Patrick Fugit) and reveals a surprising relationship with a stranger (Donal Logue). Carter (Noah Wyle) and Abby (Maura Tierney) finally launch into a relationship but have their own difficulties, like her mother (Sally Field) and manic-depressive brother (Tom Everett Scott), before Carter joins Kovac in the season finale for what would become the first of many "ER in Africa" episodes. Other guest stars include Ed Asner as the doctor of a neighborhood clinic, Nina Sablich as Kovacs' Croatian medical colleague, and Katee Sackhoff and Josh Hutcherson as patients. --David Horiuchi

Spoilers: While the television show ER lost some of its finest cast members in the preceding years, including founders Anthony Edwards, George Clooney, Julianna Margulies and the great Eriq LaSalle, it also gained some high calibre acting talent in the process.

Noah Wyle takes charge following the death of Mark Greene (in season eight), while Laura Innes's Kerry Weaver (a great characterization) continues with her usual ambitious plans, facing health and moral dilemmas on the way. Maura Tierney ably continues her role as Abby Lockhart, with Goran Visnjic maintaining his rebel ways. Newcomer Mekhi Phifer receives a top billing credit for his part as Gregory Pratt and although he has his moments, Sharif Atkins takes the upper hand with his portrayal of the likable Michael Gallant. Alex Kingston, a staple of the series has little to do this season while Sherry Stringfield returns as Susan Lewis, displaying some fine moments including a nice friendship with a terminal cancer patient. Ming-Na returns as Jing-Mei Chen, turning up the heat with her relationship with Pratt.

Season nine however, is highlighted by the brilliance of the underrated Paul McCrane. McCrane's Robert Romano faces a hard road to recovery after a devastating accident in the season opening. Though previously considered the shows 'villain', McCrane's character (who previously had few redeeming features other than his brilliance as a surgeon) is fleshed out more during season nine. With a more deeply felt characterization, McCrane gets the opportunity to display some brilliant acting talent, with a mix of the poignant and a touch of his trademark satiric wit. His friendship with Alex Kingston steps up a notch, with the two sharing a great mutual respect after years of relative hostility.

First off, it would be a lie to say the departures of Eriq La Salle and Anthony Edwards didn't hurt the show. They did. Dr. Greene was the heart of the ER, and Dr. Benton was the heart of the OR. After they both left the show in season eight, some reinventing would clearly be needed. ER continued on brilliantly for season nine. No, it was not the same show
it had been a season before, but season eight was much different than the first season. Nine was different. It had to be. It was not awful by any means.

Season nine picks up where eight left off. The hospital is in lockdown after a smallpox scare. It turns out the infection within County General is not smallpox, but monkeypox. Everyone is vaccinated and evacuated. Everyone except Carter, Abby, Chen and Pratt. During the evacuation, Dr. Romano is involved in an accident that will change the rest of his life. That accident has time and again been hailed as one of the most shocking moments of TV history!

The rest of the season is just as excellent as the season premiere. There are guest appearances by Sally Field, Don Cheadle and Edward Asnwer, among others. There is also a memorable Christmas episode that plays in reverse (a la MEMENTO) and of course the intense 200th episode, which alternates between the day and night shifts.

This season marks a change for ER. But the change isn't as bad as some people say. I think of season nine as the last truly CLASSIC season of ER. And while I'm still a loyal fan to this day, seasons 1-9 were the best of the best and I'll gladly add season nine of ER to my DVD collection.

There is a void in the ER with Dr. Green and Dr. Benton gone and John Carter fills it nicely. It was really cool to see him and Abby get together finally. They have such great chemistry, even if its explosive at times! This season is just as good, maybe better, than the other seasons in my mind. If you love ER, this season is a must have in your collection. Can't wait for the next season to be released!

What a fantastic season, Less whining more action. a lot happens in Season 9, they seem to embrace the idea o being around several more years and ramp up a few characters. This season Luca goes through some deep stuff and it was the interesting to watch him completely lose it. The episodes he narrates are my favorite.

ER continues to just as great as its previous seasons. Despite the departure of Anthony Edwards and Eriq La Salle, the drama and action still remains.

In this season, Carter must step up as the leader while dealing with his dysfunctional relationship with Abby. Luka hits rock-bottom and questions his desire in medicine. Weaver gets into hot water after an unethical favor for an alderman has tragic results. Pratt and Chen begin a relationship. Corday grieves after the death of Greene while teaching a medical student with Parkinson's Disease played by Don Cheadle. Romano's "dead" arm begins to be a burden and may derail his career in surgery. Susan treats a teenager with testicular cancer played by Patrick Fugit.

Highlight episodes: "Chaos Theory", "Hindsight", "When Night Meets Day" (ER's 200th episode)

In the 9th season you find characters that once were the students are now the teachers, new relationships started and old ones finished. While I found that it was odd not having many of the original cast on the show anymore they definitely had some good additions this season to help fill the void.
And a shake up at County General moves the management of the staff around. I liked this season because it dealt with change as a rule in life. Nothing stays the same forever change is the only constant. While this was not my favorite season by far, it was still good and a definite buy for any fan.

¿Por sin subtítulos es español?
Podrias escribir a la tienda (o decirme a quien escribiste) y preguntar donde el cliente de habla hispana pudiera dirijirse con este tema. Realmente quisiera hacer todo lo posible para ver si vuelven a subtitular las series y de paso seguir coleccionandolas.
