ER used to have some of the greatest "twists" or just big dramatic moments. One of my favorite moments was when they were paging Gant to come to the ER, and the pager went off on the John Doe that was hit by the el, and they realized it was him. Something made me think of that scene earlier today.

It wasn't a great moment or twist but I about died when Romano got squished by the helicopter. The aftermath was kinda funny too. I missed the character for quite awhile afterwards though .

So glad to see people discussing ER!

I loved the twists too. I always loved how there was often a twinge of irony often too. For instance, Romano got his arm caught off by a helicopter. Naturally, he has a fear of helicopters. A year later, he tries to face that fear and, shortly after, gets squashed by a helicopter. Also, the aftermath was ironic too with what Kerry did and how people reacted to his death. No one but Corday and maybe Kerry (VERY slightly) cared.

I actually found myself enjoying the last few seasons more than the early ones. I don't know why. The only years I felt were rough were seasons 9-11. I felt like after AE left, the show just struggled to find it's footing and couldn't decide what to do with itself. Not only that but they overdid it on the Africa stuff and I just felt like NW stunk as a lead. Part of it was the crappy Carter/Abby stuff, which they pretty much had to destroy Luka to set up. The show just was so depressing. Plus, you still had some characters meandering that were left over from the AE led group (Corday, Weaver, etc). I felt like once those characters finally were gone, the show found itself and became compelling drama. It re-focused on the ER again. It stopped trying to replace Mark Greene. It had a renewed energy. They found an emotional core in the Luka/Abby pairing, realizing they should've never abandoned that pairing to begin with. Abby became the heart and soul of the show after years of forcing her on people so it was smart to go back to that. Characters like Neela and Morris grew and developed. The only character they totally botched IMO was Pratt. They were all over the place with him right up until his death. What a waste because MP was awesome.

Ugh. I know we'll never agree on this, but I'm throwing it out there anyway. :lol:

Abby SUCKED! For me season 15 was so great because that miserable raincloud of doom, that emotional vortex of suck, that bottomless pit of need, etc, was finally gone. She was the biggest thing that turned me off the later seasons of the show (11-14) when her and Luka became the focus.


And I loved seasons 9/10. Susan Lewis FTW!

Lol. I liked Abby, but I pretty much stopped watching after season 10. My favorites seasons are the first fourish, though.

I think you would've liked seasons 12-15, Lysie, especially if you liked Abby.

I thought seasons 12 and 13 had a vibe similar to the first few seasons. 14 was hindered by the strike. 15 was just brilliant because of the way they tied everything up.

I've heard this before. Maybe I need to invest in some DVDs. I did see the end of 15. My favorites were always Doug and Carol but I've realized recently that a lot of my favorite moments involved Benton.

ER was must see TV during the early years. I loved Mark Greene! He was the heart of that ER. I know George Clooney got all the press, but AE made ER for me! Oh, how sad that he died. After that, ER lost its heart and tried to get it back by giving it to Noah Wylie's character, but IMO, it never succeeded. I didnt watch for many seasons until catching a few episodes with John Stamos and I think they were good. I also saw the last show where Mark's daughter came for the interview as a new intern- that was a good twist.

The death of Mark Greene still ranks as one of my all time saddest tv moments.

ER had many jaw dropping, heartbreaking, beautiful moments. -_-

Carter and Lucy's stabbing was AMAZING. Sad that Lucy died, but such great episodes.

Loved this scene;
