The final season of ER is, in my opinion, the best.

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.

I adored this show. Watching it was like sitting with an old friend that you got to meet up with once a week. The characters were like people you encountered everyday and at times made you shake your head and say, "What the heck was he/she thinking?" The level of anticipation I got waiting for ER to air has not been matched by anything else. The music matched the mood and situations of the plots and I found myself holding my breath when situations seemed to reach the breaking point. Wow! As I think about this medical drama, I just wish a reunion was in the works. Ever think about what those characters would be doing about now? I do all the time. Meanwhile I have my DVDs but, I hope someone out there thinks like I do and give us a peek into the "present." Wouldn't it be nice...?

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.
