May 17, 2007: The Honeymoon Is Over Season 13, Episode 23

I say what I am about to say as a huge fan of television and in particular ER I am ready for a break I am actually relieved that this television season is coming to an end because I really dont think I can take any more I am officially emotionally spent Tonight alone I endured the highs of Jim asking Pam out for a real date on The Office and the lows of Burke breaking Christinas impenetrable heart on Greys Anatomy By the time 10 pm rolled around I was primed and ready Or so I thought The shock of seeing Ray roll back in that wheelchair was naturally mitigated by the relentless promos that had shown him rolling back in a wheelchair But what I was not prepared for was a bitter angry double amputee In a million years it never occurred to me that he had sustained that sort of life-altering injury When I tell you that I literally gasped in disbelief well my friends that is the understatement of the year Overall I thought this was a fantastic capper to read more

May 10, 2007: Sea Change Season 13, Episode 22

Man there was a lot of action to keep up with tonight challenging cases of couples in turmoil pseudo-stalkers and missing doctors And lets not forget Luka in a robe As if we could But first things first let me say for the record that I have renewed hope for next season and it arrived tonight in the guise of Stanley Tucci I am intrigued by Dr Kevin Moretti and what he promises to bring to the table as ER chief Yes I am a little prejudiced because I think Stanley Tucci is an amazing actor Ive loved him in more movies that I can count most recently in The Devil Wears Prada But as he emerges from the long gorgeous shadow cast by Goran Visnjic I can still see this formidable actor bringing a grace maturity and gravity reminiscent of Anthony Edwards Remember longtime fans that Dr Mark Greene was not beloved because of his dashing good looks or romantic plotlines but rather because he was utterly believable as a beleaguered jaded doctor wh read more

May 3, 2007: I Don't Season 13, Episode 21

Oh My God I actually feel like I am going to throw up right now Are you kidding me with this I guess as a true ER fan I had to know that something unexpected was going to happen at the end of this episode but silly me I thought that something would be true to the overriding theme of that night So maybe a surprise hookup Sam and Tony Or Sam and Lucien Though at this point would Sam hooking up with anyone really qualify as a surprise But instead what do we get We get our beloved Ray being taken out by a great big truck only seconds after receiving a conciliatory voicemail from Neela Happy wedding day Luka and Abby Yep I definitely think Im going to throw up At the very least I need a drink My nerves are shot I have to admit that I was on the fence with this entire secret wedding deal It seemed far-fetched to me Not to mention the relentless promos from NBC that made me feel like I had seen the episode before it even aired In the r read more

April 26, 2007: Lights Out Season 13, Episode 20

Its never too late to choose The simple eloquent words of the terminally ill cancer patient seemed to echo the theme tonight people choosing to take a stand and trying to make things right As this season winds down and we prepare for the imminent departure of beloved characters emotions are running high and the writers seem to be upping the ante in terms of character development and story progression When I think about characters on ER who havent made much of an impression on me Sam immediately comes to mind I have often felt that the role was ill-conceived and underdeveloped a big disappointment since Ive found Linda Cardellini to be very compelling in other vehicles The entire detour into crazy Steve land that kicked off this season was so distracting and uninteresting to me that the ensuing fallout between Sam and her son Alex generated little more than apathy on my end However these episodes with Annabella Sciorr read more

April 19, 2007: Family Business Season 13, Episode 19

For my money tonights episode provided some of the most heartfelt emotion weve seen this season emotion that was no doubt underscored by the devastating events of the past week Rarely have the themes of loss and family been more resonant as we all witnessed how in an instant lives can be irrevocably altered by tragic circumstancesRobert Prosky touchingly portrayed the elderly Alzheimers-stricken man facing the unexpected death of his caregiver son played by his real-life son Andy Prosky His reaction in the moments following his sons death was gut-wrenching and the situation became even more heartbreaking as the man had to be reminded of his loss moments later Robert Prosky is one of those actors who has made a career out of small but memorable roles and his turn tonight was no exception The actor has definitely aged in recent years it was hard to believe that this was the same guy who played boss and mentor to Holly Hunters ma read more

April 12, 2007: Photographs and Memories Season 13, Episode 18

During the seven long weeks since the last new ER episode news broke about the impending departure of Goran Visnjic That disturbing development got me thinking about what Id like to say to the Powers-That-Be over at the Peacock network about the future of our beloved show Herewith my plea along with some thoughts about tonights developments Dear NBCFor starters let me just say up front that I have been a fan of ER since those heady early Must-See-TV days Ive stuck by the show while all of my favorite characters Doug Carol Benton Mark Carter have taken their leave Heck even Kerry had won me over by the time she departed for Miami with son Henry in tow So I think Ive been patient and Ive given new cast additions a chance to grow on me Ive invested myself in the stories and the natural evolution of characters who came and went sometimes with little fanfare or explanation In my heart I keep trying to convince mysel read more

February 22, 2007: From Here to Paternity Season 13, Episode 17

Before my son was born three years ago I never really had a problem watching stories about kids or families in distress In my former nonmaternal life I was able to handle a wide array of drama in my entertainment family medical romantic you name it like a rational adult able to discern fact from fiction What a difference having a family makes Today even the most remote suggestion of a suffering child dying spouse or the like spurs a visceral reaction that generally results in uncontrollable histrionics Needless to say between the family saved from the snowbound car and the father and son caught in the gang crossfire not to mention a whopper of a conclusion to the Greys Anatomy three-parter immediately preceeding tonights episode was an emotional roller coaster for me Even Sam dropping her son off at the at-risk school got to me A littleMercifully we had a healthy dose of Morris to help balance out all the familial trauma with hi read more

February 15, 2007: Crisis of Conscience Season 13, Episode 16

Thankfully tonights episode brought us back to the interesting cases and patients that draw out the best and the worst in our favorite ER doctors and nurses We were also treated to some more superlative guest-acting Sean Young is certainly no Forest Whitaker but she was poignant and sympathetic in her portrayal of the mother suspiciously dying from liver failure Though I wasnt the least bit surprised that the hateful older son was complicit in her scheme to slowly kill herself without jeopardizing the insurance money for her sons I did think this was an interesting way to once again call Gates moral compass into question Lukas assessment of Gates ability to lie without a second thought was spot-on It was interesting to juxtapose this story against Neelas refusal to participate in Manishs surgey due to her own reservations about his motives for donating a kidney Frankly I was somewhat surprised at Dubenkos pragmatic approach read more

February 8, 2007: Dying Is Easy.... Season 13, Episode 15

So lets start with the important stuff first I am thrilled to report that all the bad facial hair in the ER has left the building at least for the time being The porn 145stache is gone and the Stamos stubble is now a mere five oclock shadow of its former self The disturbance in the force has been resolved and now we can get back to focusing on important medical matters like how ridiculously tall dark and yummy Goran Visnjic is Oh and you can be sure there will be more on that in a minute I just need to regroup after all the crying I just did ER has an amazing track record with memorable guest appearances and that streak continued tonight As a huge fan of Six Feet Under and his work on that show it was great to see Freddy Rodriguez as Simon the leukemia-stricken comedian His interaction with Abby Sam and Morris was very entertaining and bittersweet and I was glad to see that he finally got a chance to do his act albeit from a hospital bed Sam f read more

February 1, 2007: Murmurs of the Heart Season 13, Episode 14

It looks like 2007 is turning out be a very good year for Forest Whitaker The Oscar nominee and by most accounts front-runner has turned in yet another bravado performance as the mentally unstable former ER patient Curtis Ames I dont think it is a stretch to assume that later this year this gifted actor will be adding an Emmy to his growing collection of acting accolades Whitaker really has an uncanny ability to capture the humanity and vulnerability of emotionally tortured characters Though I havent had a chance to see The Last King of Scotland yet I have heard he works similar magic with his charismatic portrayal of the supremely unsympathetic Idi Amin Even while you hate Ames for torturing our beloved Dr Kovac you never lose sight of the fact that the man is operating from a deep reservoir of resentment pain and lossI have to admit that I wasnt at all surprised with the denouement of this particular story line I knew that ultimately Ames was go read more
