ER's Parminder Nagra Dishes About Her "McStamos" Affair

Parminder Nagra, ER

Who would have imagined that in its 13th season, ER would heat up again? Sure, it has the solid writing and familiar characters, but the recent buzz is mostly thanks to a sexy affair between Dr. Tony Gates (John Stamos) and Dr. Neela Rasgotra (Parminder Nagra). got a chance to speak with the delightfully adorable Bend It Like Beckham star to ask her what it is like kissing "Uncle Jesse" and how she's handling Neela's busy romantic life. The British-born actress gamely answered all our questions and told us the one person Neela will not be hooking up with. Are you excited that ER is getting a lot of buzz again?Parminder Nagra: It is fan read more

November 2, 2006: Heart of the Matter

Now that is what I call a dream Yowza I think we have established that Parminder Nagra and John Stamos have some chemistry For more on the lovebirds check out the ER cover story in the new issue of TV Guide Magazine I was almost disappointed that Ray interrupted the proceedings But how can you not love a guy who shows up to fix your cable before his 7 am shift with Krispy Kremes in tow Neela may be dreaming of Gates but I think this love triangle is going to heat up once Ray gets a clue Shane West is too darn cute to be on the back burner for long Aside from the very pleasant opening sequence tonights episode served up a big dose of bittersweet Kovac won the lawsuit though it was an empty victory The sad fact of the matter is that Curtis Ames probably hadnt received the level of care that would have been required to prevent his debilitating stroke but he certainly received the best care that Luka was able to offer at the time Forest Whitaker is doing a read more

1 vs 100's Bob Saget Reveals How He Got Game (Show)

Bob Saget, 1 vs 100

Best known for benign turns on Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos, Bob Saget shattered his wholesome image with extremely ribald appearances on HBO's Entourage and in the film The Aristocrats. The comic showed us a little bit of both personalities when he chatted about hosting NBC's 1 vs 100 (Fridays at 8 pm/ET), the latest game show from the Deal or No Deal folks. TV Guide: Why 1 vs 100? Saget: It's the most amazing thing ever made. [Laug read more

As a long-time ER fan, I can ...

Question: As a long-time ER fan, I can honestly say that I've enjoyed this season much more than the past three or four. It's by no means as good as the early days, but it has definitely improved. Now answer me this: Is there any hope for Ray and Neela? It certainly seems like Neela is leaning towards Gates, and yet there is so much chemistry and unresolved tension between Neela and Ray. Many of the Ray-Neela fans (we call ourselves "Roomies" fans) think that Gates is simply a rebound guy, and that the writers are saving a Ray-Neela hookup for a long-term story line. What do you think? Answer: Anything is possible. Not being in the spoiler game, I'm not sure what ER has in store for these characters, although it's clear that Gates' secret domestic home life is going to create some obstacles to his and Neela's obvious attraction toward each other. And as Gates and Neela continue to flirt, Ray's jealousy will spike, I'm sure. It's not like we can't see it coming. The real issue here is ... read more

September 28, 2006: Graduation Day

As if Abby and Luka didnt have enough to contend with tonight manic-depressive Maggie breezed in to meet her ailing grandson and offer her support in a flurry of note taking and NICU staff badgering However she also brought an unexpected mix of motherly wisdom and perspective that Abby sorely needed Sally Field has done an excellent job with this role in each of her appearances taking a strident character and making her sympathetic and relatable never sugarcoating the challenges of living with mental illness Despite her doubts Maggie actually persuaded Abby to include the baby in a trial that was both risky and promising The scene where she insisted something was wrong with the baby reminded me of the scene from Terms of Endearment when Shirley MacLaine loses it on the nurses for not administering her daughters pain medication on time While I thought it was downright mean to lead all of us to believe the baby had died the last scene of Abby with her mom offe read more

September 21, 2006: Bloodline

Hey ER fans better late than never right Thanks for your patience while we got the blog up and running Thankfully the 13th season of our venerable Thursday-night must-see kicked off right where the finale left off with Jerry Luka Abby and Sam all in various states of peril When we last saw Sam she was being tossed into a van by Steve and his fellow prison escapee Rafe For you Six Feet Under fans Rafe was played by Michael Weston the guy who brutalized David in a similarly creepy role a few years back And Mary the ER trainee turned gun-toting accomplice was played by Natasha Gregson Wagner daughter of the late Natalie Wood Their escape resulted in Jerry being shot and Luka being paralyzed and intubated helpless to assist a bleeding unconscious Abby As a devoted fan the sloppiness of some of the writing and character development in recent seasons has been frustrating This show is at its absolute best and always has been when we are watching the day-to-day read more

A Gay Old Office Time

OK, how overwhelming is Thursday-night TV? (It's only going to get worse next week when ABC's delightful Ugly Betty enters the mix.)Thanks to some preview screeners, I managed to see nearly everything that aired last night (except on Fox, which is oh-so-easy to ignore right now). And while Survivor was a snooze and ER so glum and ludicrously melodramatic that I'm once again considering throwing in the surgical towel for good (though I will check out John Stamos' arrival to see if the show will neuter his charisma as well), the rest of the night was quite interesting.Commenting on the early news from last night's ratings: Woo-hoo to ABC and Grey's Anatomy for exploding out of the gate, clobbering (though hardly burying) CBS' still-sturdy but slipping CSI, which had a solid opener (and dazzling glimpses of Cirque du Soleil) and a disturbing finish that revealed Catherine had been drugged and taken to a strange hotel/motel room overnight. In an extended scene of wordless anxiety, Cathe... read more

Question: Now that Neela's husband has been killed, will Neela and Ray get together on ER?

Answer: Not if John Stamos has anything to say about it. In a related scoopbit, I hear one of Deadwood's most notable whores will be joining the cast as a lady friend of Stamos' medic. Any guesses?

John Stamos, ER

Question: I admit to being one of those who, for the last season or two, watched ER solely out of habit. However, I am psyched at the prospect of John Stamos being a regular cast member next season, and I am eagerly awaiting next season. Do you expect that the casting of John will pull the show out of its "funk" and re-entice some of the viewers who think it's jumped the shark? Answer: It can't hurt. I know I was sorely disappointed when ABC's inexplicable renewal (to little effect) of Jake in Progress kept him off the show during a season that could have really used him. I just hope he doesn't succumb to the same ailment that has befallen so many promising actors (Linda Cardellini, Parminder Nagra, Shane West, Kristen Johnston) who join the cast and are almost immediately sapped of appealing personality traits. Coming to ER's defense is Phil S., who writes: "I'm tired of people bashing shows just because they've been on the air for a while. If anybody actually sat down and watched ER ... read more
