E.R. Bombs In My Book

I love premier weeks. The only problem I anticipated was not having enough DVR's to save them all. I've dropped off the ER band wagon over the last few years, but last night I thought I'd rejoin it while I DVRed the other two new shows I really wanted to save. I remember why I stopped watching it. The band wagon crashed. This is another attempt of screen writers to bring the reality of life's worst into the forefront of every one's mind. What happened to happy endings? What happened to escapism? I guess if I really want that, I need to stick with the sitcoms. At the end of the show I was actually angry. I'm trying to get out of life's drama for a while. If your life is INCREDIBLE and you have a WONDERFUL life with NO PROBLEMS and a bed of roses and puppy dog breath to go home to, then catch up with reality by watching how real the world is in the depressing medical drama ER. If your life is already saturated with real drama, ER ain't for us. related posts Million Dollar Baby Review

I really liked it...Jerry's mom was great (but I liked her as Mrs. Potato Head as well). It was a very true pick up from the end of last season. But, I think this is it for them. Thirteen years is a long time!

"Who's Line Is It Anyway?" - reality TV at its best.

As a former ER fanatic, I understand your aggravation with the show. I gave up on it last year. Too contrived. Didn't even bother to tune in this year. I did catch JERICHO. I think I am going to like it.

Girl, I just wanted to shoot the TV when the heart transplant patient closed his eyes, opened his mouth, and DIED. WTF?
