A Fantastic Series on DVD!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ER: Season 15 (The Final Season) (DVD)
This review covers all 15 seasons of ER on DVD....
First let me say, I have watched ER since the very first season in 1994. Although I did not like several of the later seasons as much as the earlier ones, it was still an outstanding show. As the cast got larger, there were too many storylines going on all at once. Some of my favorite storylines included:
Dr. Ross helping the young disabled boy which in turn resulted in him leaving County General
Dr. Benton dealing with the premature birth of his son Reece, finally showing his emotional side
The birth of Doug & Carol's twin girls
The attack on Carter & Lucy and how the gang had to band together to save their lives
The emotional episodes dealing with the death of Dr. Greene -- I have seen those episodes multiple times and I still cry every single time
Dr. Greene's "dilemma" about how to treat the man who shot so many on the way to attempting to hurt his family (where he did not use the defibrillator correctly in the elevator)
Carol deciding to join Doug in Seattle (cameo by George Clooney)
Now, as far as the DVDs themselves....
The earlier seasons, unexpectedly, are double-sided DVDs so you have to turn them over in order to watch all of the episodes. I believe it is either season 3 or 4 where it goes to single side. The bonus features are a lot of fun. Lots of behind the scenes stuff, including commentaries, deleted scenes, outtakes (which are really funny), and information about a lot of the medical jargon that we heard during the episodes.
I actually own & have watched all 15 seasons of ER on DVD. It took me a while, but I did it! It really is a lot of fun to look back at some of my favorite episodes as well as remember things I may have forgotten. It was all so amazing to look back and see how things have changed since 1994 (for example: cellphones, computers, etc.). I would definitely recommend getting at least a few of the seasons if you were a fan of the show in its heyday!
