ER: The Complete Sixth Season (DVD)

Amazon.com

ER's sixth season was one of transition, bidding farewell to an original character and welcoming several new ones. After watching Doug Ross (George Clooney) leave in the previous season, Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies) is left on her own, pregnant with twins. When Robert "Rocket" Romano (Paul McCrane) makes a bid to run the whole hospital, Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) and Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) make plans to take a stand against him. Weaver, however, double-crosses Greene and winds up getting to run the ER. Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle) is locked up in a battle over his deaf son, Jeanie Boulet (Gloria Reubens) hopes to adopt an HIV-positive child, and John Carter (Noah Wyle) heats things up with his ex-cousin-in-law (Rebecca De Mornay). When Hathaway goes into labor on Thanksgiving, she's cared for by a perky OB nurse named Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney). But Lockhart is also a third-year medical student, and she later turns up in the ER as part of her rotation. One of her first encounters is with new attending Luka Kovacs (Goran Visnjic), of whom she says, "Well, we never had doctors like that in OB... Is he single?" And on her memorable first day, she gets vomited on and bitten; she plays espionage on a scheming mother, and she misdiagnoses a patient. Former medical student Deb Chen, now known as Jing-Mei (Ming-Na), returns as a resident, Alan Alda arrives as new attending Gabe Lawrence, and "Dr. Dave" Malucci (Erik Palladino), Dr. Cleo Finch (Michael Michele), and desk clerk Frank (Troy Evans) also join the cast.

As usual, tensions ran high. Elizabeth Corday (Alex Kingston) crosses the line by coercing a confession out of a suspected rapist (Lawrence Monoson), which would haunt her all season. Then during one chaotic shift, it seems almost trivial that Lucy Knight (Kellie Martin) and Carter give a painful spinal tap to a patient named Paul Sobricki (David Krumholtz) whom they later find is schizophrenic. But at the end of the shift, while the staff is celebrating Valentine's Day, events unfold into the most harrowing scene in the history of the series, and one of the most gut-wrenching in the history of television drama. Guest stars include Broadway actor John Cullum as Green's father, Judy Parfitt as Corday's mother, Martha Plimpton as a pregnant waitress, The X-Files' Mitch Pileggi as a man with Huntington's disease, and Shia LeBeouf and Dakota Fanning as young patients with multiple sclerosis and leukemia, respectively. As with most ER DVDs, the sixth season has numerous deleted scenes, including one of Lucy's first encounter with Sobricki. --David Horiuchi

ER has had several memorable episodes over the course of its first five seasons. We saw Mark Greene attempt to deliver a baby in Season 1 that cost the life of the mother. We had Doug Ross in Season 2 courageously saves a boy trapped in a storm drain. And yet, as powerful as those episodes were, even they pale in comparison to Season 6's "All in the Family."

Before I comment on that episode, we see some new additions to the cast of ER. Goran Visnijic debuts as Dr. Kovac. I liked him much better in these earlier seasons before they made him a carbon copy of Doug Ross when he was a womanizer.

Michael Michele comes aboard as Dr. Cleo Finch, the new Attending Pediatric physician. Finch is a good doctor who really cares about her patients, and Michele does a great job of demonstrating this.

Erik Palladino is a new, young ER resident, Dr. Dave Malucci. Malucci is the gung-ho doctor who doesn't have much of a bedside manner, but who is over-eager for the most difficult cases. Malucci's impulsiveness tends to land him in hot water, especially with Dr. Weaver.

Ming-Na also makes her return here as Dr. "Deb" Chen. I really liked her in Season 1 of ER, and I was thrilled when she came back. She was always a good counterpart for Carter, as the two always seemed to be in competition with each other.

Season 6 also has the first appearance of Abby Lockhart (Maura Tierney) who is doing a rotation as an OBGYN nurse before beginning her rotation down in the ER.

Season 6 also has one of the great guest appearances by Alan Alda playing Dr. Gabriel Lawrence. Dr. Lawrence was the doctor who trained Kerry Weaver, and when a medical condition arises in Dr. Lawrence, Weaver has a difficult time facing her mentor and friend.

A Kid's Review on October 5, 2006
Format: DVD
The sixth season of ER is my personal favorite. It includes several guest appearances by Alan Alda, the addition of several new doctors including Abbey Lockhart and Luka Kovac. And of course, the sixth season includes the emmy winning, shocking exit by Kellie Martin after her and Carter are

stabbed by a patient, which leads to Carter's struggle with a nasty drug addiction. There are also many great trauma room scenes in the sixth season. The complete cast for season six is:

Anthony Edwards

Noah Wyle

Julianna Margulies

Gloria Ruben

Laura Innes

Maura Tierney

Goran Visnjic

Erik Palladino

Michael Michelle

Ming Na

Paul McCrane

Alex Kingston

Kellie Martin

and

Eriq La Salle

The sixth season was nominated for 9 emmys, eventually winning two. In it's sixth season(1999-2000), ER was the most watched drama series on tv.

It's no surprise. With great acting, powerful music and outstanding cinematography, season six of ER is a must own for ER fans and great drama

fans alike.

I own season 1-6 on DVD and will no doubt buy all future seasons. This was the season I have been waiting for. Hands down the best season of ER was this 1999-2000 season, with Kellie Martin and Noah Wyle's characters being stabbed in the ER. Martin's exit was one of the most gripping in the series history. ER is a benchmark in great TV programming. Season 6 is also the one that Goran Visjnic & Maura Tierney joined the cast.

I remember this being the first season I was really allowed to watch, other than fleeting glimpses I happened to catch as I was headed for bed. Thanks in part to surgery and then my first TV for my bedroom, I quickly liked what I saw, I remember it being the first TV show that I didn't want to end. However, it wasn't until the episodes "Be Still My Heart", and the following, "All in the Family", that I really became hooked, I think there were some really good episodes in this season, but those are the two standouts for me.

Michael Crichton has created a medical drama that chronicles life and death in a Chicago hospital emergency room. Each episode tells the tale of another day in the ER, from the exciting to the mundane, and the joyous to the heart-rending. Frenetic pacing, interwoven plot lines, and emotional rollercoastering is used to attempt to accurately depict the stressful environment found there. This show even portrays the plight of medical students in their quest to become physicians.

This season marks the departure of one of my cast favorites, Julianna Margulies as Nurse Manager of the ER. It is the second departure from the original cast, and it marks the beginning of a turnover in the next few seasons, but this season is still shining with all its original members, except George Clooney (who actually seemed out of place in some ways). But we get the addition of Luka Kovac, a Croatian attending, who makes a very nice replacement of Clooney as a ladies' man.

Heading the list of attractions is several terrific story arcs. The first is the three episode appearance of Alan Alda as a new hire as chief of the ER. At first, it is clear he is expert, if a bit old fashioned. He plays the role quite differently from his Hawkeye Pierce persona. (I almost missed the Hawkeye humor. Would it have been really so bad to name him "Pierce") I won't spoil the reason he left after 3 episodes. Far more tense is a story arc featuring "Numb3rs" star, David Krumholtz, as a psychotic patient. The events of his stay change the direction of the show for over a season.

Hospital politics plays a big part early in the season, which makes Paul McCrane's role more important, as the doctor everyone loves to hate. I can say with some safety that following seasons sustain the overall quality, but none seem to reach the heights of this season, especially with other guest stars, John Cullum and Francis Sternhagen, whose parts wind down after this season.

If you happen to see this review before you buy any ER season, this is the one to try if you just want to sample the show.
