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?


  1. I never had the patience to keep up with a popular show like that *lol* Same reason I don't want LOST or Heros. I do, however, enjoy DVDs of the Golden Girls ; )

  2. Wow! I didn't know ER was in its last season! Of course, I haven't watched it in ages because I teach night classes and am too cheap to get a DVR (make that too poor).

    I was this devastated when Friends went off the air...I know how you feel! :-(

  3. I've watched it only sporadically over the years (that kid thing), but have really enjoyed this season especially. I'll have to tune in tonight!

    Shane West was on ER? Ack, I'm so disappointed! Must have been one of my "off" times.

  4. I never actually watched ER, but I'm a total House addict. I think I saw a few episodes in high school and liked ER, just never was able to get in the groove of watching it.

    I'm sorry for your loss.


  5. You've got a lovely blog, Lynette. And a lovely name to match! Thank you, kindly, for stopping by and sharing my special day and giving me your kind words of support.

  6. Thanks for stopping by.

    I just thought I'd say thanks by popping by ”Lynnette’s Blog”

  7. I haven't watched the last episode yet. I had to record it on the DVR so I can view that precious moment with my hubby.

  8. I can't believe I never watched the show. Thankfully, there's always Netfix or Hulu.

  9. sigh! I know I am sad that all my shows seems to be ending or getting cancelled. I did not know of George Clooney before ER either! He is such a sexy thing I don't know how it was possible I had not heard of him before that show.
