No more Emergency Room visits after tonight. *sigh* I can’t believe ER’s finally coming to an end, or that I’ve been watching the show for almost 15 years (minus the first year or so when my twins were born).
Aaah… the memories. Dr. Doug Ross (George Clooney) was the hottest doc in town when I first started watching. In fact, I hadn’t known Clooney existed up until that point, but that might’ve been because I lived under a rock. Of course, there have been many hotties since Dr. Ross, but he was my “first”. ;)
Do you remember some of the gruesome episodes? What about the one where Dr. Romano (Paul McCrane) was hit by helicopter blades and both his arms were chopped off? Ewww…but cool. Speaking of amputation, the writers couldn’t resist taking limbs from another ER doc. Ray Barnett (Shane West) was hit by a truck when he walked home from a bar after a fight at Abby and Lucas’ wedding causing him to loose his legs.
Don’t forget all the sexual tension between the regular ER characters: Dr. Doug Ross (Clooney) and nurse Carol Hathaway (Julianna Margulies); Dr. Kerry Weaver (Laura Innes) and psychiatrist Kim Legaspi (Elizabeth Mitchell); Dr. Peter Benton (Eriq La Salle) and physician’s assistant Jeanie Boulet (Gloria Reuben); Dr. Elizabeth Corday (Alex Kinston) and Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards); and that’s just the first six seasons.
What episodes really moved you and why? Who were your favorite characters?
