Season 14 was originally intended to be the last for ER. Thank God it wasn't.
One of the few positive effects of the 2007-2008 Hollywood Writers Strike was
delaying ER's demise so that this mediocre (by comparison to other seasons) year was not the way the most emmy nominated drama of all time signed off.

We'll never now how the second half of season 14 would've gone if there wasn't a writer's strike, but I can say with certainty that the first half of the season,
which was written pre-strike, wasn't up to the challenge of sending ER out
with a bang. Too many subplots are end abruptly and uneventfully (example, Archie's
relationship with Hope). Maura Tierney gets a great storyline with Abby
falling off the wagon (much harder than that wink and you miss it season 8 sub plot) and her performances are excellent. The problem is, the writers seem to put all their effort into that storyline, and don't balance it out enough with patient storylines or well developed arcs for the other characters. The 300th epsiode
is decent, but pales in comparison to other milestone ER episodes.

After the 300th episode, things improve somewhat. We get fantastic guest appearances by Gloria Rueben, Hal Holbrook and Steve Buscemi, and more fast paced medical storylines (the first ten episodes of season 14 are very soapy).

It's still an entertaining season. But I'm glad the writers strike gave
the pwoers that be some time to plan a stronger final season.

In a season scheduled to be its last, fans actually benefitted by the writers' strike, as ER was brought back for a fifteenth season. Unfortunately the fourteenth season, released on DVD from Warner Home Video on January 11th, 2011, is extremely uneven in its storytelling. Luckily the performances of the actors both guest and regular, make this season worth watching.

Most notable of the excellent performances by a guest is that of Stanley Tucci as Dr. Daniel Moretti whose subtle brilliance as the new head honcho brings a sense of class to the show from his appearance in the season opener: The War Comes Home. Despite the fine performance of Tucci, the impact of a new chief on the ER has simply been seen too many times before, and thus the first few episodes of season fourteen seem dissappointingly familiar. Like many of the storylines throughout the season, that of the restrained Dr. Moretti takes an abrupt turn as writers struggle to get rid of someone who had not signed on for a fifteenth season. The same can be said for many relationships throughout the season, as storylines begin and end awkwardly.

In anticipation of the end of the series, the cast of regulars had been whittled down to just six (Parminder Nagra as Dr. Neela Rasgotra, Linda Cardellini as Nurse Sam Taggart, Scott Grimes as Dr. Archie Morris, John Stamos as Dr. Tony Gates, Maura Tierney as Dr. Abby Lockhart, Mekhi Phifer as Dr. Greg Pratt) and that allows for not only the audience to truly appreciate those that are there, but also for each of the talented actors to be given plenty of time to shine. Tierney takes full advantage of the opportunity as Dr. Abby Lockhart runs the gambit of trials and tribulations throughout the entire season.

i have had the pleasure of seeing every single season, more times than i care to admit. however, there may be some seasons i enjoy more than others, and at the time i might have been angry or upset with what they were doing with the writing, but now as i look back and watch each episode, each season, i realize the writers did what they were supposed to do. they invoke emotion, all kinds, and they took the characters and story lines into places that no other drama, has done. they kept the characters growing, but with current events, and events going on around the world such as darfur. and of course the wonderful insurance companies and the good fight the doctors put forth daily dealing with insurance vs good quality care. i find myself like many im sure, missing some of my favorite characters and the story lines. i wish they would have given it a few more years, the ratings were still good enough to be on primetime, and their replacement will not be with us long, and long forgotten before you even get to the end of this review. i have purchased every season, except the last three, only because they are not available yet. no matter what season, what year you pick to purchase, you cant go wrong, they are all wonderful, and compelling television. me personally, im still waiting for the last three seasons so i can have them all.

What an awful season. I can only suppose it had to do with the writers strike. It seemed more like a soap opera to me, and the camera work was awful as well, almost like home made movies with too many closeups. It also looked like most of the season was shot late spring and summer months as you did not get the sense of changing seasons as you did over the course of other seasons, although there were a few winter episodes. Pratt lost like 20 pounds overnight near the end, so I could tell there was quite a gap between 2 episodes at that point, strike related no doubt.

I was also disturbed by the apparent acceptance of some behaviour like doctors lying to childrens parents to perform or withold treatment on the children, police attacking a patient and striking an attendant who got in the way, none of which resulted in any action taken against the doctor or policeman, or even any outrage from those who witnessed it, or were victimized by it.

It did improve near the end, and the last episode suggests one or two characters will no longer be with us in season 15. If you are an ER fan you will buy it, but if you have to miss any of the 15 seasons, this is probably the one to miss.

I normally do not write reviews but after seeing the 2 positive reviews that seemed out of line with my experience, I decided to put my 2 cents in. I still look forward to season 15, but expectations are not high.
