ER

I don't know about you, but I really wish one of these rare "special appearances" by Noah Wyle would involve Carter actually showing up at County General rather than just these far-away places. I'd be satisfied with even one Chicago visit, like the recent episode where Sharif Atkins briefly appeared in town. Well, I guess a Sudanese desert-based Carter is better than no Carter at all, eh? I did enjoy seeing him do scenes with Mary McCormack and Eamonn Walker. How horrible for that Lwendo guy to abandon his wife after he found out she was raped. Speaking of Eamonn, I love seeing yet another former Oz cast member get work. I keep waiting for Harold Perrineau and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje to walk by each other on Lost and do a "Where have I seen you before?" double take. Back to ER, I expected Clemente to be much more overjoyed when Jodie came out of her coma. I was like "wake up!"

With the help of the others on the scene, the wounded soldier is lifted in a truck so that he can be transported to a nearby Aid Station. During transport, Gallant continues treating the soldier until... In Chicago, two young brothers are brought in the ER: one is unconscious, the other suffers from face and chest trauma.

ER

Laura Innes sure does a fine job directing, as she did tonight, but I sure do wish she'd get back on screen. OK, enough whining. Glad they had Neela say goodbye to Ray as a roommate, especially since her in-laws came to town. What bad timing on Ray's part: Now was not the time to be thinking of getting it on with his roomie. 'Twas very classy of him to say to her "You're the best friend I ever had" right before she drove away in the cab. Great scene between Parminder Nagra and guest star Sheryl Lee Ralph (Moesha's step-mama needs to do more TV dramas)

April 27, 2006: No Place to Hide

It seems like ages ago that NBC aired a new one of these, so it was nice to not have to sit through yet another repeat. Last time there was a Noah Wyle-on-location-in-Africa episode, they went back and forth between County General and Africa scenes. This time, I found it strange that they split up the two half hours

Well, that was smart. I sat down to enjoy an eppy of ER with some of my newly baked sweet potato pie. First part, someone puking so I waited. Second half, someone bleeding. So I put the pie back. What did I expect, it is ER. :rolleyes:

Nice to see Carter.

Must-Move "ER"?

by Joal Ryan

031746.jpg

Anthony Edwards, George Clooney,

Noah Wyle and Eriq La Salle

Like a granny leaving her longtime home for a less taxing condo, ER may soon be vacate its longtime TV home for a less showy night of the week. The aged medical drama could be moved from Thursday to Tuesday or Wednesday next fall to make way for the new Matthew Perry series, Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, the Hollywood Reporter said.

NBC will make the call when it unveils its 2006-07 lineup on Monday. ER has aired on Thursdays at 10 p.m. since its September 1994 debut. In its and its network heyday, it was the star of Must-See TV, averaging as many as 30 million viewers a season.

This season, ER is averaging 12.1 million for the now struggling NBC, all in all, not bad for a show that's lost more stars (George Clooney, Anthony Edwards, Julianna Margulies, etc.) than some shows ever had.

But these days, ER is so not appointment TV that not even a guest spot by the returning Noah Wyle rates much interest. The second half of a Wyle story line set in war-torn Darfur ranked a so-so 27th (11.8 million viewers) in the latest Nielsen Media Research rankings. By comparison, CBS' Without a Trace, the new king of 10 p.m. Thursday, ranked eighth (19.1 million) for the TV week ended Sunday.

ER, which has already been renewed for next season, turns 13 seasons old in the fall.

Anyone watch the season finale. That ER was the best ER I've seen in a long time. Was the best season finale I have seen in a long time. What a cliff hanger? Does everyone survive, does anyone die? What about Abby's baby? And does someone find Kovac? OMG! ANd we have to wait till September (only, i hope). The baby better be ok, cause I love seeing Abby and Kovac together. They are great together, and they are so happy about the baby. If it doesn't make it, I'll cry! What a show? My husband could hear me making little, Ahh, and eek sort of noises. It was so good!!!

ER

May 18, 2006: 21 Guns

After watching the extremely well-done series finale of Will & Grace (where I kept going back and forth from laughing to crying), I was ready for the action-packed season finale of ER, especially after they made an ER reference in the last five minutes. Since it took place 20 years into the future, Will said to Grace: "I'm so glad George Clooney came back to ER!". So, unlike last week, I'm glad none of the ER regulars or semiregulars died. Well, at least that's what we can assume. After the big shootout, I expected at least one major character death. Can we say "cliff-hanger"? What an awesome ending, with Abby passing out right outside the room where Luka was gasping for air and unable to make a noise to alert the woman he half-assed proposed to. And poor Jerry (the underrated and underused Abraham Benrubi) got shot. ("Getting shot sucks!") It always gets to me when I see the characters try to revive one of their own (Grey's Anatomy certainly comes to mind.) I thought it was a very clever twist having Sam's ex, Steve (Garret Dillahunt), be involved with the whole prisoner-escape-plan scam. Let me say that I did not see it coming to have that Mary Warner character be part of the scam. Mary was played by the very effective Natasha Gregson Wagner (daughter of Natalie Wood and adopted stepdaughter of Robert Wagner). And if the main escaped-inmate psycho dude (Michael Weston) looked familiar, it's because he played an even more psychotic character on Six Feet Under (he was the guy who abducted, brutally tortured and almost killed Michael C. Hall's David). Back in Neela's world, I was glad Pratt was able to convince her to go to Gallant's service. Loved her speech to Gallant's father (Ernie Hudson) and I was happy to see the fabulous Sheryl Lee Ralph back as Gallant's mama. Neela's flashbacks were a very classy tribute to both the Gallant character and the first-rate work of Sharif Atkins. So are we getting our wish to have the annoying Morris leave the show? Don
