This season is probably my favorite season ever. I think the episodes can stand for themselves without me giving a review of them, so I'll just recap some of the episodes in detail to jog your memory and give a brief recap for the rest.
#1 Welcome Back, Carter
Carter (Noah Wyle) is late for his first day back at County, where he is doing his surgical sub-internship under the direction of Peter Benton (Eriq LaSalle) once again. The highlight of Carter's day is fainting while trying to save a profusely bleeding patient. It's also Mark Greene's (Anthony Edwards) first day as an attending in the E.R. and he's swamped by his new responsibilities. He also has to decide who is going to replace him as chief resident, and finally decides to choose Kerry Weaver (the debut of Laura Innes), much to the dismay of Doug Ross (George Clooney), who has worked with her before. Mark also gets assigned the responsibility of dealing with four new med students, one of whom is Harper Tracey (Christine Elise), Carter's love-interest-to-be. We also discover that Benton and Jeanie Boulet (Gloria Reuben) have taken their relationship to the next level.
#2 Summer Run
Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) begins her paramedic rotation with paramedics Ray "Shep" Shephard (Ron Eldard) and Raul Melendez (Carlos Gomez). Chloe (Kathleen Wilhoite) comes by the hospital to drop off Baby Susie (Gianna Beleno) with Big Susie (Susan Lewis, portrayed by Sherry Stringfield) while she goes to business school. Susan later finds out that Chloe quit school without telling her because it was "too hard".
#3 Do One, Teach One, Kill One
Susan continues to spend her days with baby Susie on one shoulder and Kerry Weaver looking over the other.

When ER was in its initial heyday, I watched from time to time, but I wasn't a big fan. I was a recruiter for a college of nursing and every Friday, I would get several students wanting to pursuing a nursing career because of what they had seen on ER. Once I began to watch the reruns, I understood their feelings!

This show is still a great one, but the earlier seasons are the best. Season two has some great moments, my personal favorite being the Hell or High Water episode that shot George Clooney into superstardom. But other episodes are great, too.

What's really interesting is to see how the characters have evolved since the early days. Season Two John Carter is a wide eyed, eager, less jaded person than the one we see today. Susan Lewis is so torn by her career and the care of her niece. And Mark Greene (who I miss more than Doug Ross) is heart wrenching as he grapples with his life and the lives he saves.

This show is one of the best and this particular collection provides a great showcase of its acting, writing, cinematography, and direction!

As I said in my season one review, "ER" started off better than pretty much any show I can think of. It had an amazing feature-length pilot and then 24 incredible episodes which combined drama, comedy, and emotion perfectly. The good news is that season two is ever better.

Season two gets off to a great start, as Dr. Carter returns to the ER to the scoldings and snide criticisms of Dr. Benton. This is a great season because it keeps the original cast together. It is not until the next season that Sherry Stringfield tragically leaves the show. This season has the whole original cast and the addition of Boulet, a wonderful new character who stuck around for several years. The adventures the ER staff undergo in this season include:

Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards): Greene's obviously strained marriage from season one finally completely crumbles in this season when his terrible wife cheats on him and then leaves him for the other man. Dr. Greene takes the divorce hard, struggling with living as a bachelor until he finally gets back into the dating game near the end of the season.

Doug Ross (George Clooney): This is perhaps Ross's greatest season, and the season defines everything that makes George Clooney a great actor and Doug Ross a great character. A major continuing storyline this season involves Ross attempting to help a little boy dying of AIDS, and how his decisions interfere with Greene's beliefs. Also, Ross stars in perhaps the greatest episode of the season, "Hell And High Water," where he saves a young boy from drowning in a drain. This episode won multiple Emmys, and is a tense and exciting piece of television, and one of the most memorable "ER" episodes ever made.

What's so great about the show ER? Well, it's a show that doesn't get worse in the second season, it just gets better. And it's character driven rather than action driven. Which means they can do a whole lot with it.

In busy Chicago, a group of doctors, nurses, and others take care of the sick. They work in a busy county Emergency Room where every day has some kind of new surprise. Add in some tumultuous personal lives and there is always something going on. The season spans almost a whole year and each episode representative of a whole shift in the ER (sometimes a little more).

Characters:
Anthony Edwards: Mark Greene
George Clooney: Doug Ross
Sherry Stringfield: Susan Lewis
Noah Wyle: John Carter
Julianna Margulies: Carol Hathaway
Gloria Reuben: Jeanie Boulet
Eriq La Salle: Peter Benton

Like I said, the characters are what make this series. Without them you just have medical procedures and the story isn't nearly as interesting. Edwards is probably one of my favorites. He's your average guy but with a good heart. Yet he still has some failings, but that just makes him a real character. Actually, pretty much all of the characters seem like normal people. Which I love. I'm not calling them ugly, but they aren't drop dead gorgeous super models either. It just makes the whole series believable. I can honestly say that I like all of the characters (except for Harper Tracy, but luckily she didn't have a huge part). Clooney is always fun to watch too as irresponsible pediatrician (such a weird mix) Doug Ross. Even if he does play the part of a jerk sometimes, there is just something about him.

I'm not a doctor. Or a nurse. Or any sort of medical professional. I have no idea of how accurate this stuff is.
