MUST BUY DVD!,
This review is from: ER: Season 5 (DVD)
It's finally here! The complete fifth season of ER is coming to dvd! Season five is one of the most intense seasons of ER period! Kellie Martin joins the cast as Carter's med student, Lucy Knight. Also, Doug Ross (Georege Clooney) leaves the show in a riveting two parter. Jeanie's condition worsens, Benton realizes his son is deaf, and at the end of the season, Hathaway finds out she is carrying twins. That is just the tip of the iceberg of what happens in ER: SEASON 5
This is a must for any fan. Also, I would like to correct a careless mistake made by amazon.com
The cast members they have listed at the top of the page are not in this season, most of them didn't even come in until the ninth or tenth season. The entire fifth season cast is:
Eriq La Salle
As for the cast members listed at the top of the page, here are the seasons they came in:
Goran Visnjic: season 6
Maura Tierney: season 6
Mekhi Phifer: season 9, recurring previously in season 8
Parminder Nagra: season 10
Linda Cardellini: season 10
There have been many other cast members on the show since season five, but these are the ones mistakenly listed by amazon as being on the fifth season. This season won at least one emmy, if not more, and earned even more nominations including one for Noah Wyle. Patient story lines include an a man who has strapped a bomb to himself, a girl who needs a transfusion of a rare blood type, a man dressed as an elf who has a heart arrythmia, a school bus accident, a shot stripper and a DUI victim. This set also includes the emmy winning two parter The Storm, which is the departure of George Clooney's charachter.
It was watched by over 40 million people when it first aired.
This is one of ER's best seasons, although I have to say they are all great, except for the eleventh season. Oh well, at least it got back to being good again for the twelth season.
Keep em coming Warner Brothers!
