There are six major milestones that make this season stand out. The first is that Dr. Susan Lewis leaves the show in the first episode. Her role was never strong. Her two best episodes are the two where she leaves. The second is the season long guest appearance of John Leguizamo as Dr. Victor Clemente as a hot shot resident. The third is the episode devoted exclusively to a patient played by James Woods, as a leading researcher who arrives in the final stages of Lou Gerhig's disease (ALS), with lots of flashbacks covering the time when the disease first appeared, and as it progressed. The fourth is the appearance of Kristen Johnston as Nurse Manager Eve Peyton (Kristen Johnston was a regular, and Emmy award winner for "Third Rock from the Sun"). The fifth was the appearance of John Stamos (He becomes a regular next season.). The sixth is the arc with Linda Cardel.ini and guest star Armand Assante.

I also enjoy the episodes where Laura Innes has a major role. She always seems like a more realistic Chief of Staff than Lisa Edelstein's role as Dr. House's boss on "House". She goes through a life changing arc in this season.

This season is a turning point for Dr. Archie Morris, who began on the show as a lazy and not very sharp intern. He is now part of the main cast, and will remain there for the remaining seasons.

There are more cases of musical chairs in romantic attachments between members of the ER staff. With some exceptions, this may be my least favorite part of "ER" from the first season. It seems that practically every major character deals with some kind of romantic or professional crisis this season. There are some episodes where scenes take place in Darfur, with Dr. Carter, but thankfully, they are brief.

Didn't like the Africa episodes. Had enough of that in past seasons. Some good episodes, and some pretty weak episodes. A mixed bag. Overall, felt like it was worth the purchase, but could have been better and maybe cost a bit too much for what I got. The season finale is very tense and exciting, but pushed believably a bit and had waaaaay too many of the cast involved in various dramas. It felt overwhelming, and I wish they had split those stories up somehow so that there could be more tension for each individual character.

I love the shows I never could watch back then. On the other hand, I don't have a DVR so individually, these have cost me a small fortune. So although I give ER 12 five stars, I give Amazon 1 star. I am a loyal Amazon and Prime customer.

I loved ER, and until Dr. Green left the show, this was among my favorite series. It's been limping a little from Season 8 to 12, but this is the season that ER flatlined.

I won't give anything away, but they've gone from interesting characters with interesting interactions and medicines to randomly assigning tragedies to characters to try and squeeze drama out of an otherwise uninteresting cast.

*Roll Roll Roll* Cancer for Dr. X!
*Roll Roll Roll* Death for Dr. Y!
*Roll Roll Roll* Crazy Family/Ex for Dr. Z!
*Roll Roll Roll* AFRICA!

You get the impression that the writers have just run out of ideas and are now flailing about and trying to keep things from utter monotony.

I'm going to finish the series, but at this point, I feel like all I'm doing is intubating a vegetable. Yeah, it'll go on for a few more seasons, but should it really?

This season is great. Always fast paced and dramatic. The characters change, but the story line remains the same: Save lives amid the chaos of the ER, and hold your own life in balance. It provides a clear picture that health care providers are human and suffer the same problems that those outside of health care do.

ER languished for a couple seasons with turgid plot lines which focused too often on one or two characters to the exception of medical problems. It became almost 'House-like' in that the characters were the plot not the situations. Some episodes were nearly unwatchable. Luckily it got back on tract in its 6th and 7th seasons.

All downhill since Mark Greene died. Still a good show overall, but lost the old school ER vibe.
