Mickey's Mega Rave: I stopped watching ER some time around George Clooney's departure, so it was purely by accident that I caught the October 9, 2008 episode, "Another Thursday at County," which was anything but. New chief resident Dr. Cate Banfield (Angela Bassett, who I would pay money to watch read the phone book) stormed the castle! It was a toss-up as to which was more toxic: the risin released by a homegrown terrorist or Banfield's brusque, maniacally competent workplace persona. She's like Kerry Weaver with better skin.
