From the incredible success of the season opening live episode "Ambush" all the way to the crazy father shooting his family in the season finale, ER's season four was full of fantastic story lines, great writing, phenomenal acting and just solid television.

ER has been my favorite show for years and this season, like the one before it, was one of the strongest on record. Viewers got to see into the lives of the characters and even welcomed a few more people to the County General family.

The season premiere, shot live twice, once for the east coast and once for the west coast, was a true inspiration, an idea hatched by series stars Anthony Edwards and George Clooney. Writer Carol Flint found a great way (a documentary crew is in the ER shooting) to write cameras and such into the story and from there, it is all the actors, as they shine in their moment in the sun.

This season brings some changes to the county general staff. Dr. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) is promoted to interim chief of emergency medicine after Dr. Morgenstern (guest star William H. Macy) has a heart attack in the season premiere. Her management style is quite brash and certainly irritates those who have to work for her. Her decision to first hire, then not, an outside management firm was made even more difficult by the fact that she was dating the man who was trying to bring the program into county (guest star Clancy Brown).

Elizabeth Korday (Alex Kingston) comes across the pond to join the County General staff as a fellow under Dr. Robert Romano (guest star and future series regular Paul McCrane). Her introduction to American television is the live episode, but her character goes through a lot in her first year. She fights off the advances of Dr.

I will say right now that this review will probably be much longer than the other three I have written, which were all pretty long themselves. But I just finished watching this season after getting it for Christmas, so it's very fresh in my mind.

Season four of "ER" is excellent and exciting dramatic television, but I must say it doesn't quite live up to the standard set by the amazing first three seasons. Do not take this as a negative, however. For the most part, this season is excellent. The only problem is a handful of episodes I could have done without.

I'll start with the season premiere, "Ambush." This is the famous live episode that was performed twice, once for the East Coast, and once for the West Coast. OK, so yes, this episode is a marvel of television and a technical masterpiece and it's simply amazing that it managed to air at all, and also that they did it twice, in a row no less. However, I just don't think this episode is very good at all. In fact, I hate it. I think if it wasn't for the fact that it aired live, it would be counted among the worst episodes of the series, if not the all time worst episode. I'm sorry, but this episode is just completely cheesy and campy and really quite awful. It has a whole different look from the other episodes, being that it aired live and all, and the whole style is like that of a different show. I also think that the plot is stupid and unrealistic and only a gimmick for the excuse to show it live. Also, the drama in this episode is really weak. It feels more like a high school play than a serious, high budget television series. All in all, a big dissapointment.

Fortunately, things get back on track after this disastrous episode, but there are still two episodes that lower the rating for me.

Season 4 is excellent in that many new & exciting story arcs are introduced. I loved the addition of British Dr. Corday and her new forming relationship with Benton. Carter deals with his addict brother, Doug tries to wrangle in Hathaway, but she shows her growth as a person. Jeannie is fired by Weaver (that old stick wielder) but stays her ground. Green still deals with his attack and begins dating Mariska Hargitay, etc.

Make sure you purchase this set at your local Target, since they offer it the cheapest ($29.99) and give you a bonus disc of the East Coat airing of "Ambush."

The much-celebrated fourth season of NBC's long-running medical drama, ER, is the recipient of two 1997-1998 Emmy awards, three 1997-1998 Screen Actors Guild awards, and one 1997-1998 Golden Globe award.

Fans of the show will be treated to roughly 16 hours chock full of trauma intertwined with personal and professional relationship trials between the doctors, nurses, support staff, and patients. The unrated six-disc set includes 22 episodes, Spanish and French language subtitles, and numerous special features including outpatient outtakes, a "Cutups" gag reel, "Anatomy of an Ambush", and the "Ambush live post-show". Outpatient outtakes allow viewers to watch deleted scenes straight from the cutting room floor, while the "Ambush" special features include analysis and discussion of the live episode as well as the subsequent celebration among the cast and crew.

The fourth season is ripe with talented and beautiful actors - some of the most adored cast members in ER history. The primary cast includes returning favorites George Clooney (Dr. Doug Ross), Anthony Edwards (Dr. Mark Greene), Noah Wyle (Dr. John Carter), Julianna Margulies (Nurse Carol Hathaway), Gloria Reuben (P.A. Jeanie Boulet), Eriq LaSalle (Dr. Peter Benton), Laura Innes (Dr. Kerry Weaver), and Maria Bello (Dr. Anna Del Amico). Also returning are Paul McCrane (Dr. Romano), William H. Macy (Dr. Morgenstern), and John Aylward (Dr. Anspaugh).

New stars to the ER this season include Alex Kingston (Dr. Corday), Mariska Hargitay (Cynthia Hooper), and Yvette Freeman (Nurse Adams). Recurring and special guest stars include Lisa Nicole Carson, Telma Hopkins, Dan Hedaya, CCH Pounder, Chad Lowe, Jorja Fox, Alan Alda, Harold Perrineau Jr.
