THE NEXT TWO PARAGRAPHS CONTAIN SPOILERS FROM THROUGHOUT THE SERIES SO BE WARNED....
I look at ER as two different series. One that lasted until the original cast left and the one that remained after that. I watched it pretty consistently up until Anthony Edwards decided to leave the show. Then I watched off and on up until the last season. I am actually using the DVDs to fill in the things that I missed. I personally think the perfect ending point for the show would have been when Greene was killed off, and sort of handing the lead to Carter.Read more ›
Edit: I emailed Amazon, and they contacted me quickly with a response to completely replace my order free of charge. I was not expecting such good service, since it's the end of August and I purchased this series in May. My replacement order was packed with air bags this time and was perfect!
But a really good show!
I can't say it was the gore, the drama, or the fact that I too was working in an "ER" but I started watching the show religiously during its airings from 9 to 11 on TNT. I used to work up at a level 1 trauma center in Chicago as an ED technician. I would work at night and thus have the mornings free to vegetate. I have been able to follow the show from the first season to what I believe is the sixth season (TNT cycles the episodes after it ends).
I'll give you what I believe is the main reason why I am hooked to the show and then go on to bash what I think the show misportrays but what it ultimately inspires. Main reason- The show is about real characters. Drama, medical technical details aside, you get to heart of what makes ER a compelling medidrama- people with real issues, real flaws that work so tirelessly to help others. You feel for Nurse Hathaway or Dr. Greene. They aren't as one dimensional or as stereotypical as a sitcom character. You can identify with them as a protagonist but at the same time, dwell and anguish over their decisions and choices on the show.
Some of the problems I have with the show are that of what makes the show compelling. A lot of medicine is not as engaging or as clear-cut as ER may make it seem. You see Doug, Carol, Mark, Benton work so tirelessly to help others. They're committed, dedicated, and passionate about their work. As a tech, working in a real ED, I found this lacking with a lot of residents and attendings. The reality is medicine at times has very few rewards, very few emotional peaks and ebs as ER would make you seem. There are very few thank yous, very few heart-agonizing moments.Read more ›
